I went on an adventure last night to Zebulon off the Bedford L. I didn’t know what it was at all, but it turned out to be quite a nice little music bar. I felt bad not being old enough to order alcohol, so I left a monster tip. The music was great though, there was a jazz quartet, this crazy experimental octet, and a solo guitarist/singer, one after another. I’d never been to a show in that capacity before, and I really enjoyed it. No cover, just cool music.
My free time has quickly gone from overwhelmingly abundant to overwhelmingly absent. Yesterday was a lot fuller than my schedule of three classes would have me believe it was. Among other things, I put in motion yesterday my plan to double major in Computer Science and Music Techology, realizing that I would be selling myself completely short if I didn’t take advantage of these classes that I’m really interested in. It turns out that my ideas about how easy it would be to double major were pretty much totally wrong, but it seems that it’ll still be possible if I take some extra credits in the summer. It’s a bit of a long shot, but I would love to go from minor to major. I just really like the classes.
Speaking of, NYU administration came through again yesterday when I got to my Data Structures class and found that it was booked in the same room with another class (Basic Algorithms). There weren’t enough seats, so a lot of people (including myself) ended up standing in the back while the Algorithms teacher did half a class, then they all left and Data Structures got 20 minutes. It was pretty lame, as I was really looking forward to my first day. Still, the teacher said hi to me after class, told me I’d really be enjoying the material (after confusedly asking if I hadn’t taken it already), and honored my request for beginner CS students to tutor! I can’t wait! I think it’ll be very, very helpful for my education to teach computers as I’m learning them.
