Semi-Weekly Reflection – April 7th, 2017
Details: For the past two weeks, I definitely gave it my all, but for the first time this year, I feel like I completely failed in what I wanted to do. I continued the Swift Guide 2.0 which is now almost done, but I had a goal which was to learn a little about hacking, and unfortunately, I feel like I now know even less. Actually, to be exact, I achieved both my other goals, just not the Hacking. I am almost finished with the Swift Guide 2.0 and also I am working on my personal website right now. I inspired my friend Seif who is now also making his own website and I am helping him with it. However, in Computer Science class, I don’t really work on the website. I work on learning new things about Swift which I will include below.
Also, just on the side: Here’s a funny joke I found about Recursion:
|In order to understand recursion you must first understand recursion.|
- Goal reflection: As aforementioned in the Details section, 2 out of my three set goals have been reached. Primarily, I am almost finished and will soon be publishing my Swift Guide 2.0. My other goal, which was to create my own webiste, is also on its way. I started creating my webiste already and it is slowly starting to look better, but I am not working on it in class. My goal to start learning hacking has been resultless so far. I don’t really understand most of the articles and I think I’ll start watching YouTube videos on how to hack.
- Goal: My goal for the next two weeks is to actually properly understand and learn Hacking! Since it really isn’t very easy and I wasn’t able to do much over the past two weeks in terms of Hacking, this is what I want to do now.
- Plans? This might seem a little bit strange, but something I noticed wastes a good 6 minutes of every class, which is about 7.5% of class time, is me picking out the songs I’ll be listening to (often with Mahmoud). Unless I am watching a YouTube video, I always like to listen to music while programming or working on anything. In order to limit and lessen the time I spend actually picking out the songs, I’ve created a playlist which I’m just going to start using from now on.
