大家好 我叫琼·菲什 是一名哈佛在读学生
Hi, dear！My name is John Fish and I’m a Harvard student.
I’m a freshman studying Computer Science
and this video is going to be a day in my life.
And the first thing we’re doing today, it’s about 7:30am
and I’m gonna go grab some breakfast.
A Day In My Life Harvard CS
So Annenberg is Harvard freshman dining hall,
说实话 有点像《哈利波特》里面的场景 很酷
honestly, it’s like something out of Harry Potters, pretty cool.
Good Morning, Luke.
Okay, it’s now, it’s now 8：15am,
and my first class begins at 9：00, so I have like 45 minutes.
I do have homework for that class that I haven’t done yet,
just like…a little bit like a page.
So I’m gonna do that, it’s Swedish,
umm…and then the other thing I’d like to do at my morning
is just plan out my day, so I have a growth book,
it’s what I call this like a little daily planner agenda, where write over my
一天的安排 目标 动力
schedule for the day, my goals, my motivation
and stuff like that.
So I’m gonna do that and
I’m gonna do my homework and then we’ll get to class.
All right, so just walking you through kind of what my scheduling,
might look like for a day, this is my schedule for today.
起床 做作业 瑞典语课 数学课
You know, wake up, do some homework, go to Swedish, go to Math,
吃午餐 听CSSI课程的客座讲座 应该会蛮有趣的
have some lunch, go to a lecture for my CSSI course today, it’s a guest lecture which should be cool,
再锻炼 晚餐 工作
then I work out, do some dinner, go to work and then
go to bed, hopefully at 10pm.
That’s the goal, that’s one of my goals for today.
To hit nine hours of sleep, I’ve already meditated which is great.
I want to read around 50 pages of my book throughout the day,
and of course, I want to film this video.
So this is a daily planner that I have personally designed,
and that I’m actually making
uhh…I actually just had a company produce,
a bunch of them and they’re going to be shipped
to Amazon hopefully within the next month,
and they’ll be available on Amazon Prime,
I mean stuff like that and so if you want to buy one,
I definitely recommond signing up my newsletter,
and the link for that is in my description.
And you’ll be able to pick up one of these when they can go.
顺便说一下 我会检查本子的封面 看
I’ll check out the cover on that by the way, look at that.
Okay, I should do my homework.
Alright, so, off to Swedish now,
现在是9：02 但我还是会准时到 因为在哈佛上课
eh…it’s exactly like 9：02, but I gonna on time because one of the interesting things
about how Harvard class work is that
they all start on Harvard time which is seven minutes past the hour,
or seven minutes past when the class is supposed to start.
So, I’ll be there on time even though I probably get there at 9：06.
对了 这是怀德纳图书馆 这儿很棒
Here’s Widener Library by the way, it’s a pretty cool library.
Alright, so that was in our Swedish, is now 10:00am.
I’m headed off to Linear Algebra, it’s across campus,
I’m gonna kinda have to rush to get there in seven minutes.
But, usually I’m able to do it in like six or seven.
So many tourists.
All right, so rolling back from lunch now, I’ve got an hour
for my next class which is a guest lecture for Computer Science course,
which is what the title of this video is a Computer Science student, that’s me.
And so, yeah, I’m gonna kill some time, maybe start an essay,
or maybe work kind of problem sets,
或许剪视频 管他呢 今天有很多事要做
maybe edit a video, I don’t know, I’ve got a lot of things on my to-do list.
So, the lecture today is
for my functional programming class, it’s called CS501,
um and it’s a guest lecture which is kind of cool.
教授来自Jane Street公司 我觉得是一个投资公司
He’s from Jane Street, which is like an investment firm I believe
and the use of OCaml, which is like one of the only actual firms
in the world or companies that uses
the language, which is the language that we use,
it’s a functional programming language.
So I’m really interested to hear, I don’t even know what the lecture is gonna be on,
I’ve heard that it’s supposed to be one of the best lectures of the year for the course.
So I’ll actually give this one in person
just I gonna head over there like 50 minutes,
in the meantime probably going to edit a video.
ALL PETS MUST BE KEPT ON A LEASH
Effective OCamlLessons from 15 years of OCaml at work
Very very cool lecture and not just because they gave us free shirts
虽然这也是一个原因 谢谢Jane Street公司
although that was cool too thanks Jane Street.
But, it’s a cool lecture, yeah, I thought it was actually pretty insightful in terms of
just like cool like programming practices that he gave us,
things like how to write code that literally you can’t express errors
which I thought was a very interesting concept the idea being like,
you need to design your types.
So OCaml is a is a typed language
and when you’re designing your custom types
doing so in a way that is literally impossible to write
invalid or to write an invalid state.
In the examples that he gave with that were really interesting.
So now the next thing that I have to do I have to go work out
and I’m not allowed to talk about that on camera on my youtube channel.
So instead you’re just some cinematic shots that I took of
Harvard and its surrounding area.
Hey, back from working out,
time to go grab a bite to eat for dinner
and then attempt to grind for a little bit.
Okay so it’s now 7:20pm,
and I’ve got a bunch of work to do.
So what I’m going to be working on right now is
I’ve got an essay that I need to be writing for tomorrow just like a little rough draft.
I don’t even think it’s due until tomorrow at midnight
and I’m gonna be starting at pset I have nothing really do tomorrow which is great.
But I’m just gonna be be working on a bunch of different things.
Okay so the essay that I’m writing
it’s a literature review that is based of on this book Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.
I think that he saved last name but correct me if I’m wrong.
The fundamental premise of the book is
how do you find happiness in a world where we really struggle to do that?
It seems like everyone wants to be happy, right?
But over the thousands of years that we’ve progressed
we haven’t really become that much happier as people.
And so the question is well, what does make you happy?
And in Flow that question is answered with the idea of meaningful work.
That is if you have a task
that fulfills Csikszentmihalyi breaks it down into eight different things eight different categories
that have task fits and then it’s a Flow
activity, and see its name Flow.
So you can apply this to anything and Csikszentmihalyi apply that to an entire life.
Saying that if you create one goal for your entire life
and then you structure your life around that
it with goals and with sub goals and so on,
then you can have one life that is just a flow experience
and therefore it will be an enjoyable experience and a happy experience.
Now what I’m looking at my essay is
how do you apply that the student to the education system,
because I believe that the education system is
简直一团糟 说实话 我觉得很多学生都感到痛苦
well it’s pretty messed up, to be honest I feel like a lot of students are miserable.
And that shouldn’t be the case, like school
should be an enjoyable experience it should be fun.
And I think that you can make it fun
and I think that there’s a way to do that with Flow.
So I’m gonna go write my essay
and then once I’ve written my essay there will be a video and a component to it,
that’s actually part of the course which is really cool.
We go to one of the studios on campus and we fill my mini TED talk.
So if you’re interested I’ll upload that video to this channel.
So if you’re not subscribed definitely subscribe
因为 很大程度上 这将会对你写论文有帮助
because well hopefully it’ll be a useful video essay for you
and if not, I upload video essays every week,
so I’m sure there will be something in there that you find useful.
Anyways I’m gonna go write this essay.
好啦 论文进展得很好 我写了大概有一个小时了
Okay the essay is going pretty well I have been writing for about an hour
I am, I’m getting a little tired though.
So I’m gonna change ideas
I’m gonna do some Math for a bit because I’ve got a problem set due in a couple days
so I’m going to do a little bit of Linear Algebra fourier’s series
I’m gonna do some Linear Algebra.
Now another thing that I can imagine a lot of people are wondering is that
for a Computer Science student I didn’t do a whole lot of coding today
and that’s actually true and it’s kind of a factor of
Harvard being a liberal arts school.
So the courses that I’m taking are Swedish,
Expose which is a writing course,
Linear Algebra and CS501,
that’s it there’s just four courses.
And if you’re coming from a technical college background like me
coming from Canada where pretty much every school
is a technical college and you take like eight courses a semester
and they’re all pretty much given to you.
Yeah it’d be kind of ridiculous to be taking a course like Swedish
or to be taking our writing course,
but I kind of love it because yes programming is fun
but I think that overall the point of school is to
make you develop as a person like you’re trying to make people
that are better members of society.
And I don’t think that becoming only a better coder will make you a better person necessarily.
I think that there’s so much more life than that.
现在好像九点钟了 好吧 九点零五分
So it’s like 9 o’clock, well 9：05 and
I’m going to start reading and brushing my teeth and
getting ready for bed cuz I try and be in bed for 10 o’clock
because manner of the sleep waking up at 7:00 just
gotta go to bed early.
But before I head to bed I’d like to talk to you
about the sponsor of this video.
As a Computer Science student sometimes
listening to the lectures isn’t enough for me to understand the things that I’m trying to learn.
To actually understand a concept
I have to reinforce that’s being taught by doing problems
and that’s why I love the sponsor of this video brilliant.org.
Brilliant has a wide variety of interesting math and science problems
and courses that can help you to both reinforce what you’re
learning and to learn new things.
For example when my CS501 class went over red-black binary trees
I was able to work through the course that brilliant
has on them to clear up my confusion from the lecture.
And best of all when I got problems wrong I was able to
look at a detailed solution and understand what went wrong in my thought process
and then fix it.
Then when it actually came to implementing a red-black tree
I didn’t have to go searching through all sorts of reference materials
brilliant had taught me all of the concepts that
I needed to know it’s genuinely a really effective system.
So if you’re interested in signing up for brilliant.org,
check out the link in my description to sign up for free.
And also the first two hundred of my viewers that decide
to upgrade will actually get 20% off their premium annual plan.
There’s now it is now 10pm. So I’m gonna head to bed
because I’m getting up at 7 tomorrow and one of my goals for the day was to hit.
九小时的睡眠 是的 很平凡很普通的一天
Nine hours of sleep yeah pretty pretty uneventful day pretty average day.
I hope that you enjoyed this video
of a day in my life I hope that you got to see a little bit of
insight into what it is to be a student and freshman year at Harvard.
And yeah thank you so much for watching.
I will see you in the next video.
