Fresh from getting shot down at the last hurdle and taking a whole weekend of relaxing, yes a whole weekend! I was feeling in a much better mental state to tackle the oncoming week, I started off with a morning meeting with my mental health app group where we outlined the objectives the week and also to catchup what I had missed for the past 2 weeks. I must say I was impressed with what was achieved so far and the app is really starting to take shape. For this week’s assignment we generated ideas for the homepage of the app and set above implementing what we thought would be good to have. We settled on a couple of graphs to display user achievements and It was all coming together very nicely.
I also jumped back on the job hunt trail again and I can safely say I didn’t miss it at all but can’t score if you don’t shoot. On a coding front I started off with practicing some codewars before diving back into Exercism. For those who don’t know it’s a lovely website setting out some challenges you can download to your preferred IDE, I like the structure of the challenges and the overall layout and highly recommend to those learning new languages to give it a go. There’s also mentor feedback which is really great to help you improve your coding too which not that many other websites have.
I’ve also had a break from my 2 group projects this week, not intentionally but I feel everyone else in the groups are also busy with their job hunts or various activities, in truth this has been a blessing as I have been able to focus on my own learning this week instead of contributing to projects. Juggling time for myself, 2 group projects and a job hunt has been tricky and so i’m really looking forward to having some time this holiday to relax a bit and focus on my own things.
