I’m going to try something like splitting this into daily activites and then health stuff. Might read more like a journal then.
Continuinig the Regression data science coursera course, but picking up speed. I feel like I’ve been slacking off for a month and that I won’t get a job as easily. Lasso is L1, Ridge is L2. I guess a mnemonic to this would be that l2 looks sort of like an “R”, so we have L2 is Ridge. Pretty silly, but —
I’m going to try to complete most of the course today, that’s my ultimate goal. I need to get going with Kaggle stuff if I want to show anything off. I think there’s six total data science courses; the fundamentals, regression, then the rest. If I really buckle down, I can complete a bunch and begin applying by next week.
This cubital tunnel thing is pretty annoying. I tried sleeping on my back without much success and wound up sleeping on my side. I’ll try again tonight because I feel like if I just keep at it, it’ll be easier. I think I kept my arm straight most of the night, so that’s good. I’m going to hang out at Starbucks today to keep my mind off of it and to force me to keep my arm straight.
The exercises actually feel a bit better today. I’ll continue to do them, though I have some reservations about them actually working. I can’t find any papers studying this, so I’m not sure. In any case, it’s best to avoid surgery, if only because of how bad a cast would look to employers (ha) and the money.
