I’m a coder, not an english major.

Hiiii,

Yesterday at 1:00 am I started contemplating life as per usual for any university student in engineering.

“Why am I here?”, “What am I doing with my life?”, “I don’t know what I’m studying.” “I’m so broke from tuition.”, “I’m not ready for responsibilities.”

Then I had the brilliant idea of journaling my life as I try to become an “adult” and brace the wilderness. As the title suggusts I suck at English, I came to Canada when I was 5 and have sucked since then. Sorry in advance, if I have no structure, grammar is off, and make no sense :).

This will be about the life of an average 20 (almost 21) coder trying to make it to the big tech giants by the end of undergrad and someone who is new to the data science field and enjoys it.

For those who may ask: “why don’t you create your own website?”. I’ve tried and I suck, web development doesn’t make sense to me as of now :). Plus data science is so much more cool.

Hope you enjoy :).
