computer science majors

anonymous asked:

what are your headcanons about vasquez's wife? how did they meet? what does she do? pets? kids? hobbies they do together?

I would apologize for the length, but you asked.  I honestly came up with most of this while writing, and it just took off.

They met in class their first semester at University, a Gen Ed English course related to neither of their majors (Computer Science and Art History), and spent the semester complaining about it to each other.  They went to school in San Francisco, Vasquez was born and raised there, Wife moved from a small town further north, within miles of the California/Oregon border.

They didn’t have any other classes together the rest of their time at school, and they might not have become anything, if future Mrs. Vasquez hadn’t shown up at the LGBT club the next semester.

(She later admits that she hadn’t been fully comfortable with the fact that she was gay, and because of her parents, she spent years, first running from it, then hiding it, which was why she didn’t tell Out and Proud Susan who managed to make every assignment in that English class queer.

It wasn’t until faced with the prospect of not having Susan as a constant in her life that she decided to change things.)

They got together a month into the semester and become, like, The Lesbian Couple in their friend group.  They can’t U-Haul right away, because of on-campus housing contracts, but they get an apartment together over the summer, and have two cats by the time their sophomore year starts.  They’re super domestic.  They’re the Mom Friends.  They go to Pride together.  Vasquez helps Wife come out to her parents, and is there when it’s obvious they aren’t fully okay with it.

It’s 2003.  They’re young, and in love.

Then, it’s 2004.  They’re young, in love, in San Francisco, and can Get Married.

And they sure as fuck do.

And because they’re That Couple, they get married on their first anniversary.

Anyway, when the news came that their marriage would be voided by the court, they spent days consoling each other, skipping class and calling out from work.  It really wasn’t until it was given then taken away that they realized exactly how much they wanted to be married to each other.

But, life goes on.  They still call each other wife.  They still wear the rings they bought (simple gold bands with their initials and the day/month of their anniversary, only slightly out of budget for a couple of college students).  They get a dog that is terrorized by their cats.  They graduate.

Wife gets a job at a museum, and goes to grad school to become a photograph conservator.  Vasquez works freelance programing jobs and goes to grad school for computer science.

The problem?  Wife’s program is in San Francisco.  Vasquez’s is in National City.

It’s hard.  They do a sorta long distance thing.  It’s only a few hours, but they’re both so busy they can only make the drive on the weekends.

When same-sex marriage was legalized again in 2008, they didn’t waste a moment.  They gave each other the ring they had worn the past four years, and later get the second date engraved on the inside.  They planned to have an actual ceremony on the anniversary of their first marriage, but Prop 8 passed, and although their marriage wasn’t voided again, they couldn’t put themselves through it.

Vasquez is recruited into the DEO from her grad program, and weekend visits become rarer and rarer.

Then, Wife shows up on a Tuesday shortly after she finished her program and I got a job in National City!

Vasquez has only been happier on the days they got married.

So, they settle into domesticity in National City.  They own a small cottage-esq house in one of the more LGBT popular suburbs.  They’re both pretty active in the community, well-known and well-liked.  They were That Lesbian Couple in college, and are still That Lesbian Couple.

There’s a giant street party on the day California legalized marriage equality again.  Vasquez and Wife start to plan their ceremony in full force.  (It’s a Glorious Gay Wedding.  They get new rings, and wear them with the old ones.  Not just the cheapest bands this time, custom made, a different design for both of them.  Vasquez’s is another band, but Wife’s is more like an engagement ring.  They both get rainbow gems, because they are Gay™.  They get the date engraved on the inside again, but not their names, instead they probably get some sappy quote about being Gay™ and in love.)

(They both wear their rings as necklaces while at work)

They have a  ‘menagerie of pets’ which comes from a fic I can’t fucking find after over 30 minutes of searching, and it’s bothering me, cause I commented on it, and I thought I bookmarked it, but I guess not….ugh this fic by Change-the-rules 

Anyway, they have a bunch of pets.  I’m thinking at least five cats, two dogs, a giant tank of fish, and a fox.

They are the go-to couple for pet sitting in the neighborhood.

And babysitting, honestly, although with babysitting, they go to the child, instead of the other way around, because Vasquez does not want to risk somebody else’s child getting their hands on her service weapon.  (It’s not likely to happen, because she keeps it locked up on the top shelf of their closet, but still Safety First.)

No kids of their own.  Yet.  It’s currently in the talks.

They sit on their porch a lot.  Wife draws random stuff on the street.  Vasquez watches her draw.  They play video games together.  They go to art exhibits and have gone to every museum in National City at least five times.  (Wife notices that Vasquez watches her more than the art, and just falls a little harder)

Basically, they are domestic af, and a good, wholesome, married, lesbian couple.

And I love them.

Hi friends! I don’t talk about myself much (I really don’t have many interesting things to say hehe), but I’m happy to say I just finished my first year of college! :D It was really, really lovely, and for those of you who’re going in the fall- don’t worry, you will have the time of your life. >w<

I don’t think I really knew who I was after high school ended. I had no idea what I wanted to do in life, but (3 majors later) I’ve found what I really love to do as a computer science major, programming and designing new software, games, and more. ^^ For the first time, I feel like I can see a bright future for myself, and I want you guys to know that you’ll find your way too. Keep working hard and do your best to find what you do best. I believe really hard in all of you guys, and I’ll be cheering you guys on. ^u^ Thank you all for supporting me.

damn the delivery boy.

Pairing: Jeon Jeongguk / Reader.

Genre: Expecting Parents AU / Fluff and Non-explicit smut.

Summary: Jeon Jeongguk is a computer science major working as a pizza delivery boy, and you are an uninspired published author who has just started an art degree. When you realise that the delivery boy is your old high school crush, he keeps coming back, but with more to offer than just puff pastry and vegetarian supreme. Though little did he know that he would end up giving you something much more that flips both of your worlds completely upside down in the form of two blue lines and nine months.

Count: 9,656 words.


month one.

Two lines.

The second is a little faint, but it is there, undeniably there, growing stronger by the second as your heart sinks deeper into the pit of your stomach and suddenly you are keeling over the sink, throwing up a combination of panic and regret. You wipe your mouth, sit back on the closed lid of the toilet, shut your eyes and take a deep breath, holding it until your lungs burn and your lashes fly back apart to look at the test still shaking between your fingertips.

There, right before your eyes, two fucking blue lines protruding like two middle fingers, poking up at you and saying – Congratulations sucker, you are pregnant!

Twenty-three years old and pregnant.

You throw up again.

This has got to be the biggest mistake of your life.

How to set up a university math notebook

Hi, I’m a Computer Science and Math major and here’s how I organize my university math notebooks. @hexaneandheels suggested/requested this post. 

First of all, I have different (yet similar) setups for classes falling under two different branches of math, Continuous math and Discrete math. Long story short: Discrete math concerns sets of objects that are countable, and Continuous math concerns sets of objects that are “measurable.” Continuous math is, roughly speaking, math based on the continuous number line, or the real numbers. Its defining quality is that given any two numbers, you can always find another number between them–in fact, you can always find an infinite set of numbers between them. In discrete mathematics, you’re working with distinct values: given any two points in discrete math, there aren’t an infinite number of points between them. If you have a finite set of objects, you can describe the function as a list of ordered pairs, and present a complete list of those pairs. If you’re interested, there are further explanations herehere, and here.

Classes that rely more on continuous math: Calculus, Differential Equations, Real Analysis, Linear Algebra, Trigonometry

Discrete math classes: Discrete Mathematics (Discrete Structures), Logic and Proofs, Computability Theory, Number Theory, Graph Theory


MATERIALS

Continuous Math: Graph composition notebook 

Discrete Math: Lined notebook (in my case, Moleskine Volant, but there’s no need for fanciness)

Both: 2- or 4-pocket folder (I prefer Five Star) - to keep worksheets, your work from practice problems, exams, syllabus, scratch paper, and all related class papers

SETUP/LAYOUT

Page 1: Title Page (can include course # and professor)

Page 2-4: Syllabus (printed and taped in)

Page 5-6: Table of Contents

Page 7: First Chapter/Section Title page

Page 8: First Chapter/Section important dates/comments/notes

Page 9: First Section/Lecture

(and so on…)

FEATURES (I ADDED)

  • numbered pages (bottom left/right corners, see example above)
  • Headers and new pages for every new subject, with date of lecture (if applicable)
  • front cover pocket for formulae sheets/notecards (half an envelope, taped with washi tape)
  • key words underlined in color
  • blue ink boxes/brackets around practice problems and examples
  • recitation notes (even if you forget your notebook in recitation, tape them in! they’re so important)

ADVICE FOR UPKEEP

  1. Don’t beat yourself up if your notebook isn’t perfect. Mine certainly aren’t! I only try to maintain enough organization for my notes to be a quick, easy reference when I work problems. If working more problems means sacrificing keeping the table of contents updated, so be it. I’m guilty of this!
  2. BE NEAT, NOT PRETTY. Notice my notes don’t really adhere to the jazzy studyblr trend, and I never rewrite them (I only revisit to touch up/add info). Because they don’t need to! Working problems is the most important thing for success in university mathematics.
  3. Always take notes in recitation to keep in the notebook.
  4. Keep track of questions you have, either in a designated section of your notebook or other notebook. I have another small notebook for questions for all my classes, to use during office hours/reviewing/etc.
  5. Always file class papers in your designated class folder/binder. I carry mine around all the time.
  6. Don’t be afraid of taping notes/papers/etc into your notebook. This practice has been a lifesaver for me when I forget my notes/etc in class and takes notes on a sheet of scratch paper.

Disclaimer: this is how I personally set up my math notebooks; feel free to tailor this to your own preferences! Good luck.

This is what happens when you trash talk your co workers.

So a while back I had recently moved and desperately needed a job, found some temporary work at a Steel Mill. The work was easy (but menial), the pay was good, but the co-workers were very cliquey. Obviously I was sort of Alien because I was a geek working on my computer science major, while almost everyone else were these big burly types you wouldn’t want to mess with.

The couple of people at my work station seemed friendly enough, not too bright but I’m not one to judge. a few months go by and I notice them exchanging glances at some of the ‘nerdy’ things I’d say (I’m kind of a dork, I’ll admit it). I’m eating my lunch and overhear them joking around about me and talking trash. As the days go by I hear more and more, and I realize they basically only talk to me so they can trash talk and laugh about it later.

So I begin plotting and finally settle on something simple yet devious. They both say pretty cringe-worthy things on a regular basis (for example, co-worker 1 comes up and says “I just came up with this funny joke. I don’t masturbate because it’s easy, I masturbate because it IS hard” and then he erupted with laughter while me and these other two just stood there awkwardly silent), so I take all the stupid things co-worker 2 says and told it to co-worker 1 as if I was the one saying it, and then did the same thing with co-worker 2.

I hear them later talking shit about the various things I said. Fucking win, I just set them up and they are now trash talking each other to each other’s faces. I walked out of the building laughing my ass off. Petty revenge at it’s finest. I continued doing it until I quit for a better job, idk if they ever caught on.
