So my first week of classes is done and a lot has gone on throughout the week. I’ve been trying to get used to a new schedule and a new routine and it’s been a little hard to kind of get my act together. Here’s what I’ve been up to:
My classes are good (mostly). I really like my Web Programming class. I feel a lot like Hermione when it comes to answering questions and knowing the answers and wanting to prove my coding knowledge. And as I suspected, it’s been fun showing off. :p
My hardest class for this semester will be my other I.T. class which involves working with the programming language Java. By the end of the semester (December), I’ll have to have the skill set to build a game, which is really intimidating. 8l Hopefully, if I just keep up and ask questions, I’ll get to that point. But still…
All of my other classes will vary in difficulty.
Although I’ve only been in classes for a week, my Web Programming class has made me realize that while my coding is good, I think my concept of design could use a little work. So I’m looking forward to honing my skills throughout the semester.
I would like to come up with a new theme for this site, but with my classes, work, and extracurricular activities, I don’t know where I’ll find the time. So I’ll probably have to wait and code the basic layout during Thanksgiving break (which spans a week in November and overlaps with Thanksgiving). Then, change it over to a theme during winter break (which spans from Mid-December to Mid-January). The good thing is, my professor will be going over some php concepts using WordPress, so hopefully I’ll get a thing or two out of that.
I’ve decided to try and find a new job. There’s nothing particularly wrong with my current job, it’s just that being a third year student, I want to gain some on-the-job experience in I.T., especially since I’ll be looking for internship. If I can get an edge, that would be great.
I’ve applied to the Help Desk on campus and also an internship that would be flexible with school (I’d just have to do a little commuting), I hope to hear from one of them soon. It’s no big deal if they don’t work out but it would be really cool if one of these jobs did work out.
All and all, things are good are I’m looking forward to this semester.
