What did you do this past week?
This past week was the week before Spring Break, also known as the week I clocked out of school. I was only able to clock out because I had no pressing tests and no pressing homework assignments. All that’s left is a daunting project due the week we come back. This week was a solely for my dance practices and keeping my sanity honestly. Each night we practiced until 3am, and the final night (Thursday) we went till 4am. That royally sucked because I had to wake up and leave Austin at 8am to get to San Antonio. Well on the bright side, we got third! (Watch it here)
What’s in your way?
In my way is a huge gap of time where my group isn’t meeting with each other. Our plan is to work on our own parts and have meetings on Discord to discuss what we’ve done. Hopefully that actually happens.
What will you do next week?
This week I’ll be spending the small time I can with family and friends, and focusing on learning how to use React. I’ve been assigned working on the front end of the project along with one other, so we both have to work together to learn and implement React. We don’t really know how it all molds together, but hopefully we figure it out soon.
What’s my experience of the class?
My experience has been great. The recent quizzes being attendance quizzes have really helped boost my quiz grades and it’s making me feel a little better about myself. I got my grade back on my test and made a commendable B, which I am ecstatic about since I didn’t think I did so great.
What’s my pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
So two friends of mine released a series called Project Upgrade which focuses on women in STEM and aims to encourage young women to pursue a STEM-related future. They learn how to code and some engineering in 3 days and with the help of some other women they end up building a pretty cool project. Check it out!
