CS371p Blog: Week 6

  1. What did you do this past week? This past week I was busy as heck. I had work, projects in every class, IM games, and quidditch practice a few times. I think I was stretched a little thin, but it was a fun and productive week.
  2. What’s in your way? Lack of time. As mentioned above, I was just stretched a little thin this past week. I wasn’t able to be as productive as I wanted to be and often felt a little burnt out.
  3. What will you do next week? This next week I plan to complete all of my projects with impending deadlines and hopefully start taking care of myself. Whenever I get stressed I usually neglect my health and stop working out, eating like crap, etc. so hopefully I’m able to get back into my normal routine this upcoming week.
  4. What did you think of Paper #6: Open-Closed Principle? I actually really enjoyed this paper. I enjoy this series because it feels as if I’m learning something each week when I read a new one. This one was better than last week’s as well because it seemed to answer my questions the more I read and provided better examples.
  5. What was your experience of arguments, returns, and consts? (this question will vary, week to week) I enjoyed these lectures as they are very tricky parts of C++ where syntax and ordering is VERY important. I had a good experience and learned a lot.
  6. What made you happy this week? I was happy when my IM basketball team won today. We all played really well and it felt a lot more cohesive compared to our first game.
  7. What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week? My pick-of-the-week relates to Anonymous and the Russian-Ukranian war currently happening.
