Final Self-Reflection – May 29, 2017
This year, and really from the beginning of the year, I can confidently but honestly say that I gave it my all. Even though I had my coding peaks, where I would go home after school and just sit on my laptop coding, I also had times where I barely did any more coding than in class. Nevertheless, I genuinely enjoyed this class. I genuinely enjoyed bonding with some of my friends, as well as seriously benefitting from coding and computer science.
So, this year, in programming, I learned A LOT. Not just a lot, but A LOT more than I expected I would. I learned about the basic use of the Machine, also about building simple games using Scratch. Then I moved on to learn about Swift, starting off by creating my very first sample App. After that, I started to learn about Python. I worked with Codeacademy, and ended up learning a lot through Codingbat. In addition to all this, I learned a lot about myself. I learned that if I really set my mind on something, I’ll be able to achieve it. That’s something I should be reminded of whenever I get too lazy to do something, or whenever I feel like I’m not motivated enough.
It is very unfortunate that you will be leaving Computer Science for HS next year. Loremaster Rellim, you will be greatly missed. Thank you for a truly great year: I really appreciate it.
