Hey everyone, it’s me again. I’ve recently (and by recently I mean for the last 2 years) been rewatching The Office (US) and so if you’ve read my last post, you already know what’s about to happen – get ready for some terrible analogies as I tell you all about my experiences with semester…Continue Reading Sem 1: a review ft. The Office
An Introduction to Software Engineering ft. SpongeBob SquarePants
You know how back in the days you’d rush back from primary school to get home in time to watch Spongebob Squarepants at 3:30 on TV2? And Spongebob would always find some way of giggling and saying, “I’m ready” in pretty much every episode? That was me at the start of last semester (minus being…Continue Reading An Introduction to Software Engineering ft. SpongeBob SquarePants
Why should you choose software?
This is a little bittersweet. After finally finishing my last assignment for the semester, it’s crazy that I get the chance to reflect on my journey once more and tell you guys all about it. While I’m typing out this post, I’m reminded of what it was like for me last year. I remember carefully…Continue Reading Why should you choose software?
Why shouldn’t you choose software?
Have you ever done that thing? The thing where you clean your whole room during hell week because you’d rather be doing that than completing all the assignments that are due. That’s me right now, except I’m not cleaning – I’m writing this blog. After watching a bunch of people present their amazing apps in…Continue Reading Why shouldn’t you choose software?
software reviews: semester two
Wanna hear something crazy? There are 2-ish weeks left of Semester 2. TWO WEEKS. Hearing this definitely made me wonder where the rest of my semester has gone. I thought mid-sem break was just a week ago? Regardless, we’re more than halfway through semester two and I figured I have enough experience to make a…Continue Reading software reviews: semester two
software reviews: semester one
Who would’ve thought we’d be starting and ending this year with online learning. To be honest, I don’t know how I would have survived the last week before mid-semester break without the much needed extension for assignments. They don’t call it “hell week” for no reason :’)) With all my assignments and tests done for…Continue Reading software reviews: semester one
Hey everyone! I’m Jess, the Software Engineering student blogger for 2021, quickly typing up this blog post in the midst of all the assignments. While I do question in these moments why I chose software, I thought I’d share a short overview of how I got here in the first place! An introduction… Fresh…Continue Reading Software yay!
Chasing the Nerd Clout (or, Why Would You Choose Software?)
So. There’s less than three days left for you to pick a specialisation. Are you ready to decide what to do with the next 45 years of your life? Okay, let’s calm down a little bit. It’s not like you’ll be forced to even start a career in your chosen discipline when you graduate. You…Continue Reading Chasing the Nerd Clout (or, Why Would You Choose Software?)
Deja Vu! I’ve Just Been In This Place Before (or, Semester 2 in Review)
As of today, exam season is over! So, first of all, congratulations on making it through! Regardless of how they went, they’re over now, and life goes on, and that’s all that matters … so are you ready to do it all over again next year? Haha, you think, he’s just joking. Second year is…Continue Reading Deja Vu! I’ve Just Been In This Place Before (or, Semester 2 in Review)
Managing Engineering Time Abound
Most of my posts so far have had a few things in common – a ridiculous title, an introduction with an unusual premise, and an AliExpress-quality sense of humour. This post has none of those things. Okay, who am I kidding. You can’t escape my jokes … just as much as I can’t escape how…Continue Reading Managing Engineering Time Abound
