  1. What did you do this past week?

This past week I just worked on some projects and assignments for other classes. I haven’t done much for this class besides keep up with the lectures so I’m prepared for the quizzes because I am opting out of doing the Life project!

  1. What’s in your way?

Nothing is in my way right now. I’m a bit stressed since this next week I have several projects due and I think I procrastinated a little too much on all of them. Hopefully, I will be able to manage them all and end them on a good note because after this next week I will be completely done with school!

  1. What will you do next week?

Next week, I’ll continue to work on my projects and keep up with the lectures for this class.

  1. What did you think of Paper #14: The New Methodology?

I did not annotate the paper for this week.

  1. What was your experience of Life, smart pointers, and virtual? (this question will vary, week to week)

I’m a bit behind on the lectures so I will have to catch up on some of these concepts before the next class. Also since I’m not doing the Life project I haven’t been paying too close attention to what Downing has said about it. However, I thought the exercise from this week went pretty well and my group and I understood the concepts that Downing mentioned in class.

  1. What made you happy this week?

I went to visit one of my best friends from high school in College Station this weekend and had a great time! Also, I hung out with some friends in Austin and got Tumble22 the other day and it was really fun! I also watch Everything Everywhere All at Once which was a really great movie that I would recommend to anyone.

  1. What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?

My tip of the week is to go outside and get some fresh air. The end of the year is nearing so I know people are stressed about exams and projects, but it is a good idea to take a break and take care of your mental health first!
