088: Spoiler Alert

img_20160328_193025-01.jpegBatman Vs Superman is now showing in theaters. Unfortunately I don't have too much zest to watch it. (I also missed Zootopia, which many friends said was good, and I am about to also miss Kung Fu Panda 3.)

I briefly wrestled with the temptation to read the Wikipedia synopsis. Finally, I gave in. The story wasn't nearly as big of a shock to me as I thought it would be. I actually found it kind of meh. I might still watch it if I got the chance and if I weren't feeling so tired, but even if I missed it, I don't think it's that great a loss.

Back at work today. I woke up at five to work on my final research report, and I finished it at eight in the morning. More work with the open data project, but I am quite disappointed with the lack of support from the other CS faculty. Then work at The Other Office in the afternoon.

I am almost done with the Memrise Mandarin language program. It should take just another day or so. While it hasn't done anything for my speaking skills, I now have a better recognition for Chinese characters. The road to fluency, I'm afraid, is still much longer.
