I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”
This is gorgeous.

-If I were half the person in real life that I am in my head, I would probably be much happier and more successful.
-I need to stop waiting for someone to tell me how to succeed and blaze my own trail. This is what the most successful people in life have done. I shouldn’t copy their exact actions, I should copy their basic approach, which is to make their own way.
-I have amazing friends. It isn’t bad to want to be like them in most ways, but I shouldn’t compare myself to them too much. They are different people with different gifts and different experiences. I will never be like them, and that is kind of the point…I shouldn’t be. That is what makes people beautiful, is that we are all so very unique.
-I need to make time for important things. I have seen what this can do and proven that I am capable of making small, consistent changes. Now I need to apply it in as many areas of my life as possible.

Can our love be fireworks

Encrypted Marauder’s Map
For my cryptology course final I made the Marauder’s Map. I used maze construct theory to design the interior, and the variations of the interior, then scrambled the different versions on folding tabs so that unless they are folded in precisely the correct sequence of left or right the map is confusing and useless. The sequence for reavealing the correct map is the binary code for a hash function of “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good’.
So this person wins at college, and life while we’re at it.
