CS371p Blog Week 14: Kyzer Polzin

  1. What did you do this past week? This past week I spent a lot of time working on projects for my classes. Since none of my classes have finals, I have a lot of projects due by the end of this last week and I have just been slammed with working on those.
  2. What’s in your way? Time-management and being so close to the semester. I have a lot of work to do this upcoming week and I am just so ready to be done with this semester. Trying to dig that last bit of effort up is hard when being so close to the end.
  3. What will you do next week? My main focus is finishing Life as I need to get an M on it to get the grade I want in this class.
  4. What did you think of Paper #14: The New Methodology? I didn’t read this week’s paper.
  5. What was your experience of Life, smart pointers, and virtual? I am still a tad confused on smart pointers (hopefully I get a better grasp as I continue to work on Life as I know it is needed for the Cell class (I think at least)). The main summary of Life and virtual made sense though.
  6. What made you happy this week? I had a good time with my friends this past week. I played in a dodgeball tournament yesterday that was a lot of fun (we got second place unfortunately). It was just good to let out some steam and not focus on school for a little bit.
  7. What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week? My tip of the week is to keep a todo list of the things you need to get done whenever you have a lot you are stressing over. I find being able to visualize everything I need to do makes it easier to concentrate on what I am doing because I am not stressing about missing a deadline for something (it is also satisfying crossing it off whenever you’re done).
