Am I going crazy? What is the sun?

Apr 12, 2020

Since we’ve been in quarantine for a while now, I have a lot of time to do whatever I can. However, that’s also a lot of time for me to procrastinate. I’ll confess, without the structure of school, I am struggling to wake up and then work. The upside of this is that I have gotten better at flute since I now have the time to practice more. As for my progress in R, I’ve recently learned about factors. Factors in R can categorize data and store it as levels like “Male” or “Female”. In this case, my levels could be the composer or grade level of a piece.

I’ve been mostly using Datacamp to learn R, so I haven’t tried programming in R studio yet. My goal this next week is to start getting more comfortable with the actual program. I hope you are all staying safe in your homes. I’ll update next week.

    I have a feeling we are all struggling with what to do with all this time, but I’m glad to hear your continuous efforts in teaching yourself R.

    I think we can all resonate with the struggle to maintain focus and motivation during this quarantine. I find forcing myself to abide by a schedule has really been helping. Great job on continuing to learn R and maintaining focus. I am excited for when you officially switch over to the program and start bringing your research idea to life.
