Before starting on the assignment 3, I did take glance over the required readings. What I learned from "Bootcamp Bootlet" was the strategy on interview.
ask specific instance
no binary questions
one question at a time
The hardest part I found during the interview was avoiding the 2-3 words answers, I found it to be very hard to really delve deep into the interview to really get into the mind of people, or maybe the people I interviewed on happened to be not having to much feelings about what I was asking?
In the mean time, below are the four interviews I did for the ASK part!
I did interviews on people who are different gendered and aged, mainly to get different perspective out from people.

For the OBSERVE part of the assignment, I basically paid close attention to the people I encounter on the street.
Almost every one I saw either had a jacket or coat. Some wears hat and gloves, some don't.
A insight I got from the observation is that what kind of outerwear a person have on them really depends on the person. Some might handle the cold weather very well, some don't.
For me personally, I like winter more than I like summer. However, I could not stand the winter cold wind blowing on me, the cold weather makes me have headache, often the time my ear and nose also hurts.
For the EXPERIENCE part of the assignment, I had to put on different winter wear to compare which one works the best (and it is awkward to capture pictures of myself...)
I decided to do comparison between different product on different types of outerwear.

For part 2 of the assignment, I started a bug list on the back of my design notebook.
So far the page only has minimum bugs, but I'm sure it will grow longer as the course goes.
