-About Me:

My name is Patrick Lu, some people call me pat, plu, or p. lu. I’m Taiwanese and 19 years old. I’m from Houston Texas, and currently I’m a second year Computer Science major at UT Austin.

My hobbies are Photography, Table Tennis, Street Fighter 4, and Eating.

I’m involved with 2 organizations at UT: Taiwanese American Student Association (TASA), and Table Tennis Club.

Some interesting facts about me are: I have a patch of natural white hair, I can solve a rubik’s cube very quickly, and I was a counselor at a Chinese Youth Summer camp(CYC)

I’ll kick your ass at super smash bros Brawl / Melee, I’m not joking.

You can usually find me at UFO Arcade on Friday and Saturday nights playing Street Fighter 4.

I don’t think I’ve ever met an actual celebrity, but I would really like to meet Anthony Bourdain, since hes my idol… haha.

I took 4 years of Japanese in High School, and I know a minimal amount of Chinese.

-Photography:

I love taking pictures; my DSLR is always in my backpack.

My goal in taking pictures is to make the viewer take a second look at the seemingly insignificant moments that pass us each day.

Even better, a link to my smugmug

-About this blog:

I had a lot of trouble thinking of a name for this blog… I wanted “Just Another Day” or something to that effect… but of course those names are all taken :P. I settled on Enhanced for loop. Weird name huh?

In computer science we use lots and lots of these “for” loops to cycle through data. The enhanced for loop just so happens to be a new thing that Sun implemented into Java. To me this particular loop symbolizes life as a student, and how it tends to repeat itself over and over each day.

Think about it. We wake up expecting the same pattern day in and day out. Class, eat, fun, study, sleep, repeat.

But, how do we distinguish each iteration from another? What is this “fun?” How do we make each day special?

So there you go, I’m going to blog about those little bits of life that make each day unique. My daily findings, photography, philosophy, reviews on new gadgets, food, student life in general.
