  1. What did you do this past week?
    This week, I have been working on projects for another class again. I am planning on starting on the next project for this class tomorrow.
  2. What’s in your way?
    Right now, I am trying to find a job for the summer, so I am working very hard on doing interview practices. Between that and my classes, I have not a lot of free time.
  3. What will you do next week?
    Next week, I want to start and finish the Darwin project. I have not found a partner, so I might be working alone for this one. Hopefully I will be able to find a partner, as I work much better with somebody else than I do alone.
  4. If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #11: Getters and Setters?
    I read the paper, and it really made me think about how I have been programming ‘wrong’ for so long. However, it does make sense to not want to give other classes access to internal fields.
  5. What was your experience of vector? (this question will vary, week to week)
    I have had a lot of experience with vectors in the past, as they are my go-to data structure in C++, just like how I use ArrayLists in Java.
  6. What made you happy this week?
    This week, I made a few online friends in a new game I started playing, and its been a good way for me to take my mind off of school.
  7. What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
    My tip of the week is to spend time practicing Leetcode/Hackerrank when looking for jobs — the more practice, the better. The programming contests at UT that Professor Downing have advertised are a great way to practice as well.
