CS371p Spring 2021: Michael Liu

What did you do this past week?

This past week I have been working hard to study for my midterms, finish up projects and assignments, and take notes of my lectures, exercise, and cook.

What’s in your way?

My sleep schedule was thrown into chaos once again after I finally fixed it and started waking up at 5 to 7 am. Now I am sleeping after the sun rises and it is really dooming me irl. I really need to fix this during spring break or else it will be very bad for me next week when school starts up again.

What will you do next week?

This upcoming week I will be the only person in Austin among my friends who has a car so everyone has been asking me to drive them to different places. So, this next week I will likely just be an uber driver for my friends.

If you read it, what did you think of the Liskov Substitution Principle?

I have not read the Liskov Substitution Principle yet but I think that I read the paper last year for Software Engineering and it was really cool and interesting!

What was your experience of heap arrays, allocators, and digits iterator?(this question will vary, week to week)

I have used allocators in the past, I am familiar with heap arrays and digit iterators seem to make sense. I do not really see how I can make use of the digit iterator concept however I think that knowing how heap arrays and allocators function and are structured is very important.

What made you happy this week?

This week I was happy because I got to spend some quality time with an old friend of mine. I don’t get to see her often but she came down to Austin for a few days because of spring break.

What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?

My tip of the week this week is to try HomeSlice, a local pizza place in Austin. My friends showed me the restaurant this week and I think that it is some of the best pizza that I’ve ever had. If you want some recommendations for pizzas, I really like the eggplant parmesan pizza.
