It’s a beautiful day here in Grinnell, Iowa. I’m continuing work on my programming project. My main problem that I’m trying to solve in how to place a clickable map inside the application. I’ve drawn up some plans for it and am trying to get the code to cooperate. Luckily, Google and other online resources are proving pretty useful for finding resources. It’s a matter of making all the bits of code work together. I like to think of it as working with a very complicated recipe. I know what ingredients I need, it’s just a matter of prepping them and cooking them into a delicious dish. There’s a lot of trial and error involved, but I’m feeling more and more empowered as I learn. That’s not to say that I feel like an expert, but its exciting that what used to be pure gibberish now makes at least some sense. I spent the whole weekend working on the code, and seem to be making progress. I’ve also been designing a series of posters for the wellness department and continued modifying app mockup drawings.
Today has been spent doing readings, planning, and organization… outside! It’s a balmy 58 degrees outside right now, so I’ve been taking advantage of it. I’ve been soaking up the sun (and vitamin D) by working outside in front of the JRC. It feels great to just be outside after a long and freezing winter. The snow is melting, turning parts of campus into lakes and rivers, which makes for some cool photographic opportunities.
