RescueTime One Week Later

I’ve been using RescueTime for over a week now, which means I have enough data for a weekly analysis of what I’ve been up to, yay! The app is on both my laptop and phone, but I do sometimes use my wife’s devices (iPad and laptop). There’s probably around 3 hours unproductive time missed there! In Read More

Reflecting On My School Daze

My study space is really taking shape now. Even though it’s basically a corner of the living room and my laptop is set on a dining table. I have a study board with some three-month goals written across it. I have a set of shelves with my study materials on it. And next week I have Read More

Adventures In Meetup

Last week I had the idea that I should be socialising and getting used to my new local area. We plan to live here for a while, so it makes sense to settle in. After some searching, I was able to find some local groups on Meetup that seemed reasonable; a couple of books groups, a Read More

Writing About Not Knowing What To Write About

Even though I’ve been blogging for almost a year now, it’s still pretty tricky to think of something to write every day. Whenever I bring up this topic with my wife, her response is “do you really need to write every single day?”, to which my answer is no, not really. But do I want to Read More

So many times I’ve seen people sitting at their desk with their lunches, scrolling on their Read More

How I Met My Study Buddy

School was not my favourite because I really didn’t fit in. In fact, I hated the majority of it. So when the opportunity came to drop out at 16, I did. I then went to community college just to do my GCSEs and a GNVQ in IT and found a completely different environment that reminded me Read More

Experience So Far With A Udacity Nanodegree

Predictive Analytics has been pretty interesting so far. While there was some content I had already been through before, I definitely needed a refresher. I basically re-did everything I’d done before just to make sure I knew what I was doing. Alteryx certainly helps make a lot of data prep and analysis work super easy. If Read More

Trying To Keep Up With Everything Is Hard

Time! It is on my mind a lot lately. I’ve got several different projects at work and keeping on top of them is proving challenging. Time constraints! And at home I have a fair amount of studying to do. The Predictive Analytics Nanodegree, for instance. Although I’m prioritising that as it has set deadlines, I’d still Read More
