I’ve been working on Chatter with the project managers, Chris, Maddy, and Abriella. It’s been really fun so far. I get to learn a little bit of Vue and did a lot of front-end stuff to implement Abriella’s design. Here are my progress for this week. Although it’s a holiday week, I’m really glad I’ve chosen to work this week, I’ve learned a lot and the work was really fun and exciting!
Today is also the last day of 2020! So much has happened in 2020, and I’d say that overall I’m proud of myself of what I’ve accomplished this year:
Learned React / React Native
Transferred to a major that I enjoy (so far . . . :p)
Learned how to create responsive web designs
Found more classical music to enjoy
Designed classical composers tote bags for a Charity
Learned Liszt’s Sonetto del Petrarca No. 47
Got more flexible in yoga
Here’s a piece of music to close out 2020. Kreisleriana is one of those pieces that is very Schumannesque. The piece is supposedly the visualization of E. T. A. Hoffmann’s eccentric conductor Kreisler. It also features a lot of contrapunctal, dramatic, and stormy passages. The piece also reflects Schumann’s (supposedly) schizophrenic episodes featuring Eusebius and Florestan.
This rendition of Kreisleriana is performed by the legendary Martha Argerich.
