Fun For Friday: 11-22-2019

Hi all! Officially, I’m a day late with this, but I think there are some countries where it’s still Friday ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, I started this “meme” with the idea to have a weekly post about my weekend plans, and made it to posting a whole… one week xD But here I am again (on Saturday) with a second try! Read the first one here!

In this post, Iโ€™ll share with you what Iโ€™ve been reading, watching, playing and doing in the past week, what Iโ€™m hoping to do in the upcoming weekend, and Iโ€™m hoping to interact with you all, because Iโ€™d love to know what youโ€™re doing as well!

Right now, I’m sitting in a restaurant with my boyfriend, working on school, of course, and waiting for the kid to be done with his (4-hours-long…) activity. I brought my laptop to work on school, and my boyfriend is prepping his next DnD session ๐Ÿ™‚

What I’ve been….

..Reading

I finished Five Dark Fates, which I talked about in my previous FFF-post,and I loved it to bits! There were so many unexpected things happening and so many characters I’ve loved throughout the series, and I hope to review the whole series soon!

I also started reading This Mortal Coil, and finished it. I am almost done with This Cruel Design as well, but I wanted to read the last 100 or-so pages yesterday and just kept falling asleep! Not because the book is boring, absolutely not, but this week has tired me so much, I couldn’t keep my eyes open ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Both of these books are really amazing, and I’m eagerly waiting for the last book in the series.

I also brought with me A Closed and Common Orbit, because that’s the next book I wanted to read, and I thought I’d have finished This Cruel Design last night ^^;

 

..Watching

Well, this is a short list, because since the last post, I haven’t watched anything new ^^; We heart that Stephen Fry will feature in Doctor Who though, so we miight need to catch up soon! There was another series he wanted to show me, but I forgot the name haha

..Playing

Also, quite short, and basically the same as last post! Since the new semester has only begun this week, and I had only one class on Monday, we decided to play the game we originally wanted to play in the weekend: Keyforge: Age of Ascension. I haven’t played a lot on my laptop past weeks, so that’s easy haha

..Doing

School of course, what else is there to do..? Nah, in all seriousness, last semester ended a week ago, and I have one grade yet to get, but I passed all my other exams so far ๐Ÿ˜€ Our project worked well enough as well, and if the internet is nice to me, I might even be able to upload the video here. [Edit: I tried, but I have to get premium to be able to play videos so.. I’ll upload it on Youtube and put the link online!]

deltarobot

I can upload an image, and our project was to build a robot that could pick up the puzzle pieces, and place it in the box correctly ๐Ÿ™‚ It meant researching, building, connecting, wiring, coding and endless, endless testing and trial-and-errorring but in the end it worked!

This semester, we have to work on the same project, and basically expand it and add new features. It requires a camera now, that we’ll have to connect to the PLC and somehow have the images from the camera convert to code that the PLC can work with to send signal to the servomotors to move, so our robot can go to the place it needs. All in all, a process that will take up quite some thought&time and might be easier to explain once I can show my video!

Upcoming weekend!

Well, technically this weekend, but still. We’re here at the restaurant, and after that, we’ll go home and probably work on the Sinterklaas surprises for a bit (very Dutch thing to do), and tomorrow, we don’t have any plans as far as I know. I do want to work a bit in the weekend, because my code for an assignment next week is almost working and I really want it to work completely.

How did your week look like? What plans do you have for the upcoming weekend? What are you reading this week? Let me know!

Check out all my reviews here!
