I found that Obsidian works really well for me as a student! And I also learned some bits of Latex!

A screenshot of a Markdown page in Obsidian. Written there are my notes about Air Pressure. There are a lot of Maths expresions there made possible with Latex!

I also tried the new Blueprint language! It's basically a language for writing UI expressions for Gtk akin to QtQuick!
See my PR here!

Before that, I did my Arts school assignment. I painted a panting of a Pasific island based on this pic from Battlefield V!. And wowwyy, it feels more like a bird!

A painting depicting a Pasific island in the day, with many US transport ships around the beach. There is also one that got destroyed and is on fire!

I was able to get parsing and LLVM IR generation for printing/functions/function calls working in the language that I am making(HISS). I am writing it in c# using LLVMSharp, and this was a big win because it proves that the compiled code can run and call the c standard library.
