Week 2

What a crazy week! I can’t believe it has only been two weeks. This week, in particular, has been a rough one. On top of this class, I have three 400-level computer science courses and intermediate Spanish. The free time I have is extremely limited so I certainly fell behind this week. I foolishly failed to check the assignments for this week early on and missed a few because of that. Luckily, it is only the second week and now knowing what I know, I can budget for that.

One of my favorite assignments this week was the Google Neural Network. I knew that this thing would be fast in guessing my drawings, but not this fast. It was a fun challenge that I hope others will enjoy as well. You can find it here:

My favorite Daily that I did was Thursday’s map of our day. I showed what my day would look like and the types of things I would be doing. I posted this on Twitter yesterday afternoon. It was interesting to take a step back and visually see where I would be throughout the day. You can find this here:

This week was hard, but now knowing the kind of work this class takes, I’ll be sure to be more proactive in my blogging in the future. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Here is a post that I found on Imgur that depicts something that just can’t be possible. It is a post by Bomolakeview .

First Week Reflections

What a crazy first-week spring 2020 has been. This class specifically has been the most enjoyable. I’ve always liked creating websites and writing blog posts. Since middle school, I’ve cultivated a passion for creating websites. So, because of this fact, this class is a perfect end to a long academic career at the University of Mary Washington.

I specifically enjoyed the introductions portion of this course, which can be found above. I enjoyed the introductions, in particular, this week because it was very fun and interesting to create many different accounts on all of social media. It was awesome to learn and create sound clips on Soundcloud, a youtube video on YouTube, creating class specific tweets on Twitter (which I am very familiar with), and Instagram photos. It was cool to get a hang of these different social media tools and I am excited to learn more about how they work, and what we will use them for.

I did not enjoy the large setup. It was quite time-consuming and at times, frustrating. This is because of the very busy week I had, in addition to some computer difficulties. However, it seems that setting up accounts, setting up a website, and figuring out how everything works in general, is a one-time scenario. So, hopefully, I can smoothly sail through this class without much difficulty.
