This is part 10 of a 10-part series.
We’re finally here. Although I had to delay until after Ditch Day 2014 to finish this series because I stupidly left my desktop in a state that didn’t let me retrieve all the videos I needed, it’s finally done. Before I get to the highlight reel, I wanted to thank all of the people that helped make my stack possible:
- My co-stackers.
- All of the alums who helped out with our stack.
- All of the Caltech personnel that let us use various spaces and things they were responsible for.
- Everyone who went on the stack!
I’d go into specifics, but I’m sure I’d miss someone.
The highlight reel is mostly video footage I’ve posted elsewhere in this series with a little bit of extra footage that didn’t really fit anywhere on its own. I hope it provides a good summary of the day and memory store for everyone who was involved 🙂 It’s…kind of long.
Now that I’m done with the Ditch Day series, I guess I’ll need to find new things to write about! Hopefully, I’ll be able to write a few essays touching on software engineering, music, e-sports, or other interests that I have. If there’s any interest, I might write another post with advice for next year’s seniors from someone who has now been on both the senior and alum side of things. For the next little bit, I’ll probably focus on my next reading project, though, as I’ve been devoting all of my time to writing the blog and have let some other projects slip.
As far as Ditch Day, I enjoyed helping out where I could when I came back this year and am looking forward to doing so again next year. In a broader sense, I think life would be a lot more exciting if we made activities as elaborate as these just so that people could have fun with them. Maybe I should look into trying to make that happen out in the real world.
As a sort of below the fold shameless plug: I’m doing a bike ride this fall to help raise funds for a charity that supports MS research. Please consider giving a tax-deductible contribution here and check out both my and my team’s progress here.
