Thoughts, Christmas, Wrappers and Auto-Boxing

Hmm, I wonder if it would be possible to actually use the blog as a notebook and open it to critique from professionals and such to hear different sides of what I am learning, that would be pretty interesting. The idea itself is fascinating to me to just think what I might learn from it. This blog would have to grow first before that happens, maybe some day right?
Well its good ol’ Christmas tomorrow and I will be going to my sisters house with my family, nothing too exciting. To be honest, I am just ready for the end of that so I can do something else other than fake useless platitudes to make other people have a good day. Ah well, if it makes them happy.

Studied a bit on wrapper objects today in conjunction of ArrayLists. I like ArrayLists, don’t have to worry about having to determine a set amount elements to use. I can use its add, set, and remove methods to modify it to suit my needs. Nifty. Unfortunately, they don’t like primitive types. So they use a wrapper object to define the type of the ArrayList. I don’t quite understand what they were trying to get at to say a wrapper object is also a primitive type and, conversely, it is also a object at the same time… Maybe it wasn’t written well. Or maybe I just didn’t get it. Oh well, I just said ‘encapsulation’ and moved on with it. Eh, I will look over it tomorrow, maybe it will make more sense then.

Anyways, I am going to play with some Git while their servers are cooperating.

Until next time
