不夠

期中考要到了,回憶開學以來的執行效能,很驚恐地發現其實不太好。大概有兩個癥結。第一個是老問題了:我還是沒辦法鑽進那些細節。最具代表性的例子就是 AI 的狀況,講了那麼多種 search strategies,每種都只簡單看看而沒試著實作或多分析一些,現在是期中考前,每種都只有一層粗淺的印象,還滿糟的。

第二個癥結也是老問題:課程不迎合胃口就沒動力。這學期的課程的確比大二上遜色一截:圖論的口味沒有高等微積分重,知識論的方向有點偏開我想要討論的問題,作業系統講成好多事實的集合,…,可是再引一次 Knuth 在《Digital Typography》裡面講的話:

In fact, I think contemporary society is all mixed up in its concept of "boredom": People often say to each other that they are bored, but to me this is almost a shocking, shameful admission. Why should it be somebody else's duty to entertain us? People who can't find anything of interest in what they are doing, who constantly need external sources of stimulation and auusement, are missing most of life's pleasures.

所以關鍵還是在於我願不願意去發掘潛藏其中的趣味。總之要再加把勁!

希望學期末檢討的時候可以正面收尾 XD。
