I've begun Tetris, yet I have yet to write a line of code. I have yet to step inside the SunLab. I have yet to make a class diagram, a flow chart, or write my class descriptions. I have yet to decide which methods I will create, which interfaces I will implement. I have yet to even jot anything down on paper. The work ahead seems intimidating; however, I have done the necessary mental prepartion. I've scrupulously read over the class notes, I've looked at the code for other programs. I've built a strong foundation for myself. I carry with me the strength of all programmers before me. I shall succeed.
