Create Task Day 7

Today was not a very good day for my mental stability, as I came across multiple confusions concerning my abstraction. I was very tempted to redo my entire create task, but I decided I would just add a function that could be considered an abstraction and did my best with what I could do. I had to redo putting shapes around my code, but in the end, I finally finished with everything. I uploaded my materials to CollegeBoard, and I am happy to be done.

Create Task Day 6

Today I finished writing up 2b and 2c, as well as editing my pdf in order to put a rectangle around my abstraction, and an oval around my algorithm that calls upon other algorithms. I had troubling understanding what an abstraction was, so I ended up putting the rectangle in the wrong place, so tomorrow, I plan to fix it, and complete the create task. 9 out of 10!!

Create Task Day 5

Today I uploaded my screencast to the folder where I am keeping everything. The code is all edited and refurbished so that it works the way I want it to. I finished writing 2a, and working on 2b, so I would say I am pretty far along. I didn't come across any problems, except it took me a while to convert the .mov file into .mp4, but I got there in the end. Out of 10, I would say I am now at a 7.

Create Task Day 4

Today I finished up my coding. As of right now, it works the way I want it to, so I am happy with that. I was considering adding another function where the user can learn more about the pets, however I wasn't sure how that would work if the user adds new animals. I don't think I want to add more if I already have the requirements needed. The next thing I have to work on is my screencast and the 2a-d. Since the hardest part(in my opinion) is over, I am at a 5 out of 10. Halfway there!

Create Task Day 3

Today I worked on creating, opening, and closing a file for my Create Task. First I imported pickle, so I could access the file. Therefore, I created two new functions- the load function, which would save and load the pets that were added in a previous run-through of the program. That unfortunately I haven't gotten to work out yet, but at least I have the basics already put in. The same applies to my quit function, which is supposed to take the list and save it before quitting out of the program. Hopefully, once I'm done putting down the general code, I'll have plenty of time to edit and work out any errors that I have had and will have in the future. I feel confident now that I am at a 3-4 out of 10 as far as completion goes.

Create Task Day 2

It is now Day 2 of working on the Create Task. I have the basic functions written, adopting, returning, and viewing the animals I already appended to the list. I also have the if statements that go through the conditions that, when they call upon the procedures, will go to and run through them. I had a slight problem making it so that my original input question didn't repeat over and over, but instead stayed on one line. I figured out that I need to use os.system('clear') in order for it to actually clear on the screen(kinda sounds obvious now.) I came across another problem as well,  where when the user asks to adopt an animal from the list, it says it is not there when it actually is. I have yet to figure out that problem...On a scale of 1-10, assuming I solve that problem relatively soon, I will be at a 3.

Create Task Day 1

Today I am starting my create task, so on a scale of 1-10, I. was at a 1. I want to do a pet store simulation where the user can buy pets, see the ones in stock, as well as giving one back. I worked on creating the functions for seeing the ones in stock, adopting pets, and returning pets. I ran into a small error where I ended up in an infinite loop, but I fixed it by returning my input at the end of my function. I would say now, on a scale of 1-10 that I am at a 2.5.
