Aww yeah, will be DJing in Val Thorens in January.

Since I've started DJing for the student union, I've actually found it really, really fun and have started to get into it quite a bit. Whilst I've not had the confidence to start going to other venues (not enough confidence; feel like I need to be better than I am before I feel comfortable going to other places), I've started to take it quite seriously with properly scouting for music, researching different techniques on the decks we use, etc. Basically trying to stray away from "press play". Luckily an opportunity has arrived that previous DJs I know have done - the main union DJ and myself have been asked to play for a snowsports societies' week-long shindig in Val Thorens. Unsurprisingly, the society is filled to the brim with Yahs, so we're going to be paid a hefty amount and will have access to some really nice kit. Shame that it's in 6 months time, but I'm already incredibly excited.
From a minute in is what the previous guys got up to last year in Les Arcs

Will keep you guys updated, and maybe livestream a union night or two to TWHL if anyone is interested!

Opened my 3rd year exam results; turns out I haven't achieved enough to continue on with my course. I can still get an ordinary degree by passing the resits in august.

Only hope now is that I can partially transfer to informatics (comp sci) and attempt to get a honours degree with them given half of my computational physics course so far has been... comp sci.

Not great news to hear. Family is supportive though.

Give a shit about Quantum Computing?
Want to know why my Compo 34 entry is nonexistant?
Want to potentially learn something fascinating?

Well, have I got the PDF for you!
Download me here!

In all seriousness, I've spent the last semester alongside a bunch of other Computational Physicists who've been tasked with writing up a classical simulation of a quantum computer. Not only this, but we've also provided as much potential background information that you may want, including a nice introduction to quantum mech & quantum computation.

You'll probably need some knowledge of matrices and algebra ( Don't worry if you don't understand all the equations, in all honesty I don't really know them either, however can explain what they all do.)

I have password protected the document as it techically is coursework and therefore don't really want it circulating, however I trust everyone here at twhl doesn't want to ruin my life. Honestly though, if you are interested in this stuff, it's 35 pages of pure joy. The password should be obvious.

Nice little life update for Autumn 2016:

1) Finally managed to get into 3rd year of Physics
2) Unfortunately know only 1 person in the entire year, so it'll be like 1st year all over again
3) Have been trained and have DJ'd a couple nights at my Student union, can now ~bend the truth~ that I'm a professional DJ
4) No longer part of any of the musical theatre groups because I don't want to have to repeat another year of university, but still doing publicity work for them
5) Girlfriend split up with me 3/4 of the way through summer, last few months have been some of the worst I've ever experienced. Having a constant feeling of dread / melancholy /emptiness for months at a time is absolutely horrible. Was probably for the better, but I've lost my closest friend.
