TEAM T-SHIRTS
After work hours on Thurs, we had a one-hour conference to decide on the basic t-shirt design and colors that our program will have made for us. I didn’t realize! It was fun. Especially once we got to deciding on colors…

Here’s a glimpse of our process:

CODENAMES
I joined in a couple rounds of Codenames in my apartment on…  Friday? The days are blurring together again. Anyhow, I was able to reaffirm that not everyone’s brains are wired the same way (I’m looking at you, Brittany and Devi!).

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALFREDO!
As far as I’m concerned, anytime within a week—nay month, of a person’s birthday, they have free range to party. Happy birthday, Alfredo. Hope it was a good one!

WORKING AWAY
Our last C++ course covered classes, objects, and inheritance. I’m so glad it’s over, but I still have this urge to go back and do some more exercises. In Journal Club with Anna we discussed an article published in CHI (Computer Human Interaction) about a fog machine. The article itself was full of jargon and hard to read, which led us to discuss the target audience and purpose of the article. We also rabbit-trailed a bit into this Teslasuit, and other more immersive technologies that are being developed for VR.

ROPES CHALLENGE COURSE
This was awesome. We started off with a few outdoor, active puzzles that involved brainstorming and teamwork. This included, but was not limited to, a trust fall, this 35ft swing (see pic), and a 50ft rope/log tower for climbing. More pictures to come!
