What did you do this past week? I didn’t have any deadlines this past week except for an essay. The biggest thing in this week was the essay that took a while to finish. I had still gotten some work done in other classes. I did some work on what I believe is the final project in my SDS class. I am looking for a partner for my CS371p class. Other than that, it was a week more relaxing than the one before because there was only one deadline. I was able to get things done around the house, such as mowing the lawn and trimming bushes. I also got a haircut as well.
What’s in your way? Nothing is in my way currently, but I know that since this is the home stretch, there will be things in my way to come. All of my classes with have final projects due, so I am not looking forward to that.
What will you do next week? I will continue my CS 373 project, I will start and try to make significant progress in my CS371p class. I will try to get a major part of my final essay done, and perhaps do another reading response. I will also try to finish my project for my SDS class.
If you read it, what did you think of the What Happens to Us Does Not Happen to Most of You? It was a good eye opener for me. I had not been aware of these issues until last year, when a TA in my class told everyone about it. I didn’t know that there were people experiencing this type of harassment often. I am glad that I know that I am helping by just being aware of these problems.
What was your experience of joins and refactoring? (this question will vary, week to week) I have never used joins before, but I have refactored in the past. Hopefully I will become good at it, and even more hopefully I will get to a point where I don’t even need to refactor.
What made you happy this week? As I said earlier, I got a new haircut. I feel very fresh.
What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week? I found that Barcel came out with a new chip, called Takis Waves. They’re essentially wavy potato chips with Taki dust. Theyre good, but I don’t know if they’re better than Takis, because in my bag, the dust was very light.
