The first thing we started with once arriving to VRAC today was session 3 of the C++ course. At this point in the course I am feeling a little discouraged because I am struggling with grasping the details as well as the big picture of the C++ programming assignments. I’m not even sure what the things I type fully mean. Despite all of that, I am staying hopeful that a lightbulb in my head will go off eventually. It’s just pretty complex content for someone with very little to no coding background, like myself. One thing that does make this experience a little better is the fact that our instructor is very patient and tries his best to explain things to me and others that may be struggling a bit as well.
For lunch some of us went to Jeff’s Pizza in Campustown and the pizza was really good. We got the very modestly priced lunch special which consisted of 2 very large slices of pizza and “pop”, as they call it here. It was very filling and tasty. I definitely want to go back to the Campustown area and eat at some of the other eating places they have during my time here.
On a side note, through today, I have continued to get as many books and article pdfs that I can about design, biomimicry, and emerging technologies through the IA state library website, I think I have found ~19 book thus far on topics from smart cities to space architecture. I’m excited to start reading!
I think I’m going to make a small cake tonight too.
