Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

well I had an amazing stream today. Got top 500 legend from being rank 5 this morning (that's a looooong distance) and beat the absolute hell out of my favorite player/streamer/pro, dog:

here's a clip from his stream when I beat him:

"I got destroyed.. absolutely crushed."

this is the best day of hearthstone I've ever had. I had a good # of viewers during it too, too bad I didn't have a host to help it out. That would've been amazing. I wish I could always play like this.

I'm definitely seeing significant growth almost every day though, which is awesome.

I would definitely say that if stress is a big deal for you, be wary of math, although you seem to enjoy it more than me so take that into consideration. I've taken 8 cs classes by now, and with the exception of one (statistical machine learning) none of them came close to the amount of hours and stress that math classes have. And yeah your social life will definitely suffer lol. If you've been learning math on your own and enjoying it though, you could end up being one of those math majors that is just constantly enjoying solving the problems, those people don't seem to stress much and enjoy their studies more than most students I meet.

The math major is broadly useful though, and if you don't wanna go into software engineering (or whatever cs career) it could definitely be worth it to spend 1-2 years more now for the graduate options. In our math career fair there were companies from finance/data analysis/economic consulting/defense that said they usually prioritise math grads over people with finance/cs/economics majors. Being able to program on top of that is a huge advantage also.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

Yea and math tests stress me out more than any other kind of test. I don't think I could handle it.

Today was a great day streaming. Didn't do as well as yesterday but I got a huge host from sjow again, 1100 viewers with 300 in my channel most of the day. picked up 100 followers and a few donations.

also I got another $100 donation from the 2p2 lurker the other day, pretty nuts. It's crazy all the positive feedback I'm getting from my channel. It's really helping my mental state a lot and I look forward to streaming every time I do it. This has been such a great thing.

i was worried my doctors wouldnt like it because they're trying to get me away from video games but they think this is a good thing if it gets me to socialize and open up my personality a little more. i'm very reserved and withdrawn in public, but when I am streaming I feel like I can be myself. I want to be more like that in real life.
