When programming I’ve generally found it easier to restart than look for the bugs. This works fine with simple projects but its really nothing more than bad habit. I know when I’m working on anything complex it won’t be a realistic or time efficient option. So I’m forcing myself to debug what I have and not going nuclear and rewriting from the beginning. This method helps develop a greater understanding of how the program works as well.
I just finished my last class and worked as a substitute teacher for hopefully the last time. Although I was a sub, believe it or not I actually worked over 40 hours a week. then add to that the time I’d spend with school work it didn’t leave a whole lot of time for much else. It is exciting to have enough time to work on projects that I’m interested in. I still sit on my balcony and write up code on my laptop but now that my classes are over and summer has begun I can redouble my efforts and make more progress on the things I find most interesting, which is still web and android development.
Beginning a career in a completely new field is also exciting but brings a little nervousness as well. I’ve got enough money saved for a couple of months so I should have plenty of time to find something. If in the worst case scenario I don’t find anything before then, I can always go back to subbing, but here’s hoping that going back to the school district won’t be necessary.
