Coding Mediation

Listening to everyone’s code generated text today in class was really interesting and a very fun experience! Each person had a different story/creation and I think it really spoke to their true character and true nature. I learned a lot about my classmates, while also learning about code.

Just like Alexandria, I don’t think I could choose a favorite. They were all so creative, clever, and different from one another and had qualities that stood out from one another. I really liked that!

I also think this mediation assignment has really helped me grasp coding on a deeper level. I hope that this skill will translate into my profession, whether I choose to pursue a career with Muggles or wizards!

Coding: SUCCESS!

Well, I’ve done it! I’ve generated code successfully and I’m thrilled with the end result. It’s a bit more humorous than my usual academic projects, but Harry and Ron think it’s hysterical. Ron doesn’t quite understand the references but Harry does. Many of my Muggle-born classmates also love it, so that is exciting for me! It’s not often that people like what I make because, well, I don’t make things a lot.

I hope I receive a good grade on it because I worked hard on it!

Comfortable Coding

Just as Alexandria mentioned yesterday, spending time working in class with our professor has helped immensely and I feel more comfortable with coding now. I’m still slightly concerned as to how I’ll make it to 50,000 words. That’s a lot more words than it sounds like. Hopefully this week will offer me some time to work on it but also relax too, because I need that! It’s been a busy week and I’d like to keep some parts of it low-stress.


Coding to me seems like magic. A difficult concept, but easy once you get the hang of it. But once you feel you’ve gotten the hang of it, a new curveball is thrown at you and you can do nothing else but accept it and combat it. I can’t tell whether or not I’m looking forward to this project of generating 50,000 words through code. I think I’m at the point of “accept it and combat it” really.

Life is picking up fast and I’m running on very little sleep, but the weather is becoming slightly less dreary and cold which is absolutly perfect for me. Mondays are always tough too and I feel like I’m on edge. I’m trying to remember to relax. It’s proving quite difficult.
