At last! I was able to go home to visit my parents for four days. Yesterday, Monday, was National Heroes Day so I booked my return flight for today, Tuesday. I was able to treat them to a movie which we do very seldom as a family. We were also able to spend some time on a local beach, nothing fancy, just your plain beach with some kubos. Mama just brought some bread, chips and soft drink. The water was not that clear also. Nevertheless, we had fun. My paper review requirement for my course this semester due tomorrow is taking a lot of my time though. I could have spent some more time with them on one of our local parks or visit some of our relatives. Hopefully, when I come home some other time I will have a more requirements-free schedule.
Today and tomorrow will most likely be a rough day for me. I need to write two paper reviews today (The Future of Supercomputing by M. Snir, GPUs: a closer look by K. Fatahalian et. al) for submission tomorrow. Add to that, I need to write some exercise CUDA C code in preparation for our class programming exercise. The faster I will be able to finish my paper reviews, the more time I will have for coding. Hopefully, I will have already finished my review of the first paper by the time our plane arrives in Manila. I am currently writing this blog post mid-flight.
