  • Simple python exercises?

    Just started learning python, and am looking for some simple exercises to practice with.

    I know:

    strings,lists.. etc

    loops

    exception handling

    functions

    importing files

    conditionals

    user input

    Any exercises incorporating any, or all of the above would be awesome.

  • Changes to my code in python?

    I'm learning python, and I'm having a little trouble with an exercise.

    Essentially, I am trying to define a function with one argument. This function will take the string that I input, and if the letter is a consonant add an o and the same consonant after, if it is a vowel it won't do anything.

    e.g. function(tiger) would display totigogeror

    This is my code:

    def translate(var):

    vowels = ['a', 'e', 'i'. 'o', 'u']

    for i in var:

    if i in vowels:

    print i

    else:

    print i + 'o' + i

    which gives me

    tot

    i

    gog

    e

    ror

    How can I adjust my code to output the results all on one line? I was thinking that a continue loop might work better than a for loop but I'm confused as to how I should write it.

    Anyway, thanks.

  • Best language for learning to code?

    What is the best language for someone with no coding experience to try to learn, and how would I go about procuring the necessary programs?

    I've heard Java is good, but can't figure out what I need to download.

  • Another 3 year old poem, wanting some new feedback. No revisions.?

    Today my world goes up in flames

    A chorus line of false angels commence my silence

    Sent by God to ensure my loneliness

    My malcontent surrounds me

    Filling my lungs with the toxic fumes of resent

    Resent for what you have done

    Resent for what I.. have not

    As I watch my world burn to the ground

    God, his angels and you laugh

    At the pitiful excuse of a man

    Crying in the shadow of his world, torn to pieces

    If God could cast my faith aside

    If you could forgo my love

    What more is there for me in this life?

    I lay my soul to rest

    As I hang my head in despair

    The noose is tied around my neck

    Who will it be?

    Who will push me past the brink?

    You gladly volunteer to do the deed

    I have but one request:

    That you look me in the eyes

    So that I may share in your content

    If only for a brief moment,

    I shall share a feeling of happiness in this life

    The last thing I want to see are your beautiful eyes

    Like diamonds: brilliant yet cold

    You feel no remorse as you send me to my death

    You leave me to burn alongside my world of hopes and dreams

    All that remains is the hope that you will one day see

    The error of your ways

  • Poem I revised after a few years, more imagery, more sophisticated vocabulary. Feedback appreciated!?

    As the last golden rays of Friday’s summer sun fade into night

    My eyelids grow heavy and I drift into the unconscious realm of sleep,

    Of my wandering imagination

    Reflecting upon our time together – how short it was

    Hours flew by like seconds, as if in a state of hyper-awareness

    Your beauty – unrivaled by even the most exquisite renaissance masterpiece

    Like memories of ones once loved

    Impenetrable and invincible to the test of time

    Much changes with the passing of the seasons

    Trees shed their wondrous, technicolor leaves

    Daffodils and tulips begin to bloom anew

    Yet you remain unchanging

    As pure and gracious as the day we first met

    But that ship has long since set sail to new lands

    Only a distant memory in the vast sea that is my soul

    One that shall endure unto the end of time

    My heart pulls me close to you

    With the intensity of a raging fire – burning bright in the night

    I wish only that it be reciprocated

    And yet it only seems to repel

    Hours now pass like days – days like weeks

    Impatiently I count each consequent second

    Like a metronome – I soon become unnoticed

    Waiting for the chance to witness your beauty one last time

    For without you there is no grace in my life

    No reason to keep up the struggle

    My beating heart – the incessant tick-tock of my life’s clock

    Winding down to an inevitable bitter end

    3 AnswersPoetry6 years ago
  • Short poem, thoughts and feedback appreciated?

    Endings are life’s greatest inevitability

    Much like the climactic battle scene of a movie rolling its credits,

    Everything eventually draws to a close

    Whether it be the dawning of a blustery winter’s day,

    Or the first moments of the most breathtaking autumn sunset

    Whether it is the toughest test ever taken,

    Or the simplest of games played among friends

    Every beginning,

    Necessitates an ending

    Therefore, so too must life

    Come to its own bitter-sweet end.

  • Jamaica, how you doing?

    Heard a song on my tv's reggae music channel. It said it was called "Jamaica, how you doing" by Anthony Cruz. For the life of me I can't find a video of it anywhere.

    If you know of it or could link me to a video or torrent, please do!

  • I'm looking for closure?

    There's a girl and for all intensive purposes it didn't work out.

    I've typed up a letter I want to send to her. The letter explains the situation between us, how it got to the point it's at, how I feel about the situation and how I feel about the her. Unfortunately I need closure to move forward and I feel this is the only way I'm going to get it (I've tried other things before). I also, unfortunately, think that this letter may unnerve her: to what point, I'm not sure. Is my getting closure worth unsettling her? She's done nothing explicitly wrong, but the situation is quite upsetting to me.

    I've tried to just forget about it and put it behind me but because I don't know what her feelings are I just keep coming back to it. There is nothing in the letter that I believe would offend her, or even could offend her. I just put a lot of emotion into it and I think she may be a little uneasy about it.

    I realize this is essentially a repost of my previous question but I felt I didn't explain clearly enough.

  • What can I do now?????

    I love her and can't get her out of my head... I know she doesn't feel the same. I had a dream about her last night. In the dream I felt happy. I'm up now and can't stop thinking of her. She means a lot to me and I don't want to lose her. I told her how I felt about her and got no response (she lives too far to see often in person).

    How can i deal with this? Anything I can say to her? How can I move on and forget my feelings for her?

  • Been texting this girl I met online?

    I've been texting her for about a week now. I happen to be heading down to near where she lives on Friday and suggested we meet for a coffee. She said she was busy and to tell her what days worked for me. I told her the weekends are good for me and she replied that she usually worked those days. I then said that I'm sure we could work something out eventually and she replied ":)" ...

    Is she honestly interested in meeting up? I'm confused..

  • Men's clothing for clubbing?

    I was debating between; brown high-tops / black dress shoes and fitted button-down / t-shirt.

    I also thought about wearing a tie and vest but I think that'd be too formal.

  • Going to a club/dance, clothing advice?

    I'm a guy going to an 18 and under dance at a club in my city. I want to be noticed by girls there. I was considering wearing dark blue jeans, a black button-up dress shirt, tie, vest and some nice high-top shoes. Do you think that's too formal? Any suggestions as far as types of clothing? I'm also gonna wear a nice belt and watch as well as cologne so don't need suggestions as far as that goes.

    Thanks guys!!

  • How can I change the conversation?

    How can I change the conversation from serious to fun? Been texting a girl and we got into talking about university plans. I'd like to change the topic to something more light-hearted (there are only so many interesting things I have to say about her program, I know very little about). I was thinking just texting her something completely off topic and seeing how she responded but I don't want to lose her interest either.

    Any ideas?

  • What do you think these lyrics mean?

    What do these lyrics mean to you?

    I've seen so many girls, I've heard so many lines

    And once or twice I thought, that one of them was mine

    Well how it always goes and how it's always been

    I start to think that we'd be better off if we were friends

    But there's a new turn, yeah there's a new twist

    I know I said before that I just couldn't handle this

    I'm not the type to write you love songs

    Oh it'd help if somebody sang along

    And said

    Tell me, tell me, tell me anything

    And I will believe you

    Tell me, tell me, tell me not to go

    And I will never leave you

    Tell me, tell me, tell me I'm yours

    Tell me that you're the same

    Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me

    Anything

  • What's your opinion on this?

    What's your opinion on an 18y/o guy going out with a 20y/o girl?

    9 AnswersSingles & Dating9 years ago
  • Do you think I can tell her like this?

    I want to tell a friend of mine that I like her. I would do it in person but we live quite far apart and don't really have much opportunity to see each other. There is a possibility that she may move to Japan in a few months and I don't think I'll see her before that.

    We haven't known each other that long and I want to tell her that I have feelings for her and that I'd like to get to know her better. I'm very hesitant because I know this isn't really something that's appropriate to tell someone over facebook chat.

    How should I let her know that I like her but that I want to get to know her better regardless of her feelings for me? I've tried typing it out many times but it always sounds too blunt and insincere.

    I don't want this to ruin our friendship but I can't ignore my feelings for her and live regretting not having told her when I could.

    Please, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

  • How can I pick myself up right now?

    I'm really depressed right now. I turned 18 a little while ago and only 1 of my really close friends wished me a happy birthday and other than my grandmother, none of my family wished me a happy birthday either. My parents fight all the time and when I try to do something about it I get yelled at for getting in the middle of it. The girl I like and one of the only girls I enjoy being with lives 3 hours away and I never see her. She might be moving to Japan in a few months and I may never see her again.

    It seems the only things that keep me going right now are clinging to the hope that the girl I may never see again has feelings for me and alcohol: which I hate myself for drinking.

    No, I'm not underage anymore.. the drinking age is 18 where I live

    Anybody out there suffer from depression and know what might help?

  • What should I do, I'm a little lost?

    Long story short, there's a girl I really like. The last time I saw her was in August, because we live a fair distance from each other. Next year we're both going to university, her possibly in Japan, which is only going to increase the distance between us. I have no clue when I'd be able to see her next because we're both incredibly busy with school and me with work as well. I wanted to tell her about my feelings for her in person, but an opportunity to do so may never present itself.

    I have her facebook and phone number but I don't think it'd be a good idea because we haven't talked face-to-face in a long time, and it might seem weird.

  • Please, any and all critiques?

    As Friday disappears with the setting of the sun

    My eyes close as I drift into the unconscious realm

    Of my imagination

    To reflect upon our time together... How short it was

    The hours flew by like seconds

    The beauty of your image engraved in my mind;

    As the words on the tombstone of one once loved

    Impenetrable and invincible to the test of time

    So much changes with the passing of each year

    The trees have shed their leaves

    And the daffodils begin to bloom anew

    Yet you remain unchanged

    As pure and gracious as the day we first met

    But that ship has set sail to a new land

    Only a distant memory in the sea that is my soul

    One that shall remain unto the end of time...

    Your heart pulls me close to you

    With the intensity of the setting sun’s last gleaming beacon

    I wish only for mine to do the same

    And yet my heart only seems to repel

    Hours turned into days, to weeks, to months

    Impatiently I counted each and every second

    Like a metronome, I soon became unnoticed

    Waiting for my chance to see you one more time

    For without you there would be no grace in my life

    No reason to keep struggling to live

    My beating heart, the incessant tick-tock of my life’s clock

    Winding down to the bitter end

    I know there is room for improvement, now I need your help to find out where.

    Please respond with anything you think I could do to improve this poem :) thanks!
