  • Hi there 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 7:30 a.m.

  • I'm gonna go grab some breakfast

  • So Annenberg is Harvard's freshman dining hall, and honestly, it's like something out of Harry Potter. It's pretty cool.

  • Morning Luke.

  • Okay, it's now 8:15 a.m.. 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.

  • And then, the other thing that I like to do with my mornings is just plan out my day

  • so I have a growth book, it's what I call it's like a little daily planner agenda where I write over my

  • schedule for the day my goals my motivation 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 the day.

  • You know, wake up, do some homework, go to Swedish, go to math, have some lunch, go to lecture for my CS course today

  • It's a guest lecture which should be cool. Then I work out, eat some dinner, go to work and then go to bed

  • hopefully like 10:00 p.m ..um..That's the goal that's one of my goals for today is 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 then 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, 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 and stuff like that and so if you want to buy one I

  • Definitely recommend signing up for my newsletter

  • the link for that is in my description and you'll be able to

  • Pick up one of these when they come out. Oh, and check out the cover on that bad boy look at that

  • Mmm, ooh

  • Embossed logo, okay. I should do homework

  • Alright so off to Swedish now

  • It's actually like 9:02

  • But I'm gonna be on time because one of the interesting things about how

  • Harvard classes 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'll probably get there like 9:06. There's Widener Library by the way. It's a pretty cool library

  • Alright, so that was an hour of Swedish. It is now 10:00 a.m, so 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 rolling back from lunch now

  • I've got an hour for my class which is a guest lecture at the 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, maybe work on a problem set, maybe edit a video

  • I got a lot of things on my to-do list.

  • So the lecture today is for my functional programming class it's called CS51

  • And it's a guest lecture which is kind of cool. He's from Jane Street. Which is like an investment firm

  • I believe they use 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

  • But I've heard that it's supposed to be one of the best lectures of the year for the course

  • So I'll actually go to this one in person. Just gonna head over there in like 50 minutes and in the meantime

  • probably going to edit a video

  • Very very cool lecture and not just because they gave us free shirts although that was cool, too

  • Thanks, Jane Street. But just 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 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, here's just some cinematic shots that I took of

  • Harvard and its surrounding area.

  • Alright, I'm 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 7:20 p.m.. 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 psets

  • I have nothing really due 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 off of this book flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

  • I think that's how you say his 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...

  • Csik Mihaly breaks it down into eight different things eight different

  • Categories that have task fits and then it's a flow activity and semion flow

  • So you can apply this to anything and Csik Mihaly applied 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 in my essay is how do you apply that to the student - to the education system?

  • Because I believe that the education system is... 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 as 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 fillm a mini TED talk. So if you're interested

  • I'll upload that video to this channel, so if you're not subscribed definitely subscribe 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

  • Okay, the essay, it's 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 gears

  • 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 for year series - for year - FOUR years. I'm gonna some 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 our Swedish, Expos, which is a writing course

  • Linear algebra and CS51. 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 a 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 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.

  • 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

  • to try and be in bed for 10 o'clock because, maner 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 what'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 CS51 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

  • It's 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

  • 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 in freshman year at Harvard and

  • Yeah, thank you so much for watching. I will see in the next video

  • Don't forget to subscribe if you haven't already because I make videos every week sometimes probably more, okay, bye

Hi there my name is John fish, and I'm a Harvard student
