What did you do this past week?

This past week, I submitted Project #4 with my team. It was a really fun and awesome experience, and I got to work on some really cool things, and some really cool people. Me and my teammates — we call ourselves ‘the gang!’ — know how to get things done. We mean business, and when the going starts to get rough, we like to get down into the mud. Overall, I had a pleasant experience working on Project #4 — just me and my team.

What’s in your way?

Nothing is in my way! Thanksgiving break is here, and I’m ready to relax. My grandparents flew in from India yesterday, so I’m excited to spend some time with them. Also, I just started watching The Wheel of Time, so I’m stoked to see what happens next.

What will you do next week?

Who can know? I’m going to let God dictate my fate.

If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #13: Why Extends Is Evil?

I thought the paper was really interesting! I had a blast thinking through it, and I think I had some insight that will stick with me for a long time.

What was your experience of SQL? (this question will vary, week to week)

SQL is a really interesting tool! I was fascinated by how versatile, yet simple the language was. It was weird because we weren’t talking much at all about the internal implementation, so it was weird not seeing Dr. Downing explaining how the innards of the systems worked. We learned SQL from more of an application perspective. Meaning, we focused on how we would practically be using SQL if we had to develop with it in the real world.

What made you happy this week?

I became a super model this week. Soon after, I was given the most super super model award, and I was awarded that award because I’m super. After living a long and unbelievably successful career, I’m retiring next week, and I want to congratulate all the young and impressionable adolescents I’ve inspired to become super.

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

Have fun w/it!
