And Over the Finish Line

My 12 weeks of internship has finally come to an end. This journey has been bitter sweet with lots of lost hopes and high expectation, with tears and joy and cries of frustration. But beyond all that, I have created something significant. Maybe in comparison it might not be a Read more…

Final Lap

This being my second last week, I had to put in my effort as much as possible in order to reach a state for my part to be able to be passed on. I have been working on optimizing my codes while adding features which would be needed in future, Read more…

Almost a UI

Now, I must admit, time is really flying by; as they say in tales, almost in the blink of an eye. I am left with two more weeks and a lot more worth of work. Dr Shawn has been around the whole week and I believe, during this time, I had Read more…

Further into my Project

With one more week down, I seem more focused and result-oriented on my project. Working with this makes me both excited and anxious. At times, whereas the frustration of codes not working becomes immense and adds to the stress while at other times, it acts as a push to do Read more…
