Dear blog, let us catch up.
Saturday. I woke up early to prepare for the Java SE boot camp. It was my first time to commute to the venue so I gave myself some buffer to figure things out. Thank God the commute went smoothly. Class was productive. I learned a lot. I enjoyed hands-on lab exercises more than the lectures.
There are 11 students in total but 2 were absent. Only 2 of us are girls. As expected of programming students, most of us are reserved and introverted although we also have a fair share of classmates who enjoy being know-it-alls. That’s normal. During breaks, the rest of us just let them blab away all they want, and don’t really have the energy to engage them. We occasionally nod as we go about our business: eating, checking our phones, playing mobile games, etc. We have daily food allowance consumable in the school cafeteria, which is extremely convenient because we don’t need to worry about where and what to eat. I think I ate too much.
Sunday. I attended a worship service in the morning, had lunch with my parents, and took 2 consecutive pop-up classes late in the afternoon. It was fun and challenging. As expected, I had a hard time memorizing the steps. I get the steps while the coach was teaching them, but I tend to blank out when I have to dance them from memory. I hope they send the videos soon so I can practice. I’m the type who needs to practice a lot before I can execute properly. I don’t feel bad though because I don’t think I’m that far behind from the people around me. I’m just really slow when it comes to memorizing the steps. But once I memorized it, my swag comes out. I think I’m pretty decent.
I feel sleepy now. I’ll update my Produce X 101 post tomorrow. 💤
