Good News Everyone!

I got the confirmation today that I would be accepted to join a Data Science Apprenticeship degree. The head of admissions approved me based on my work experience (years of business metrics, Excel and VBA) and self-study (Business Statistics and Advanced Excel)!

To clarify, this apprenticeship will be for an actual Bachelor’s degree in Data Science. Even a year ago I wouldn’t have thought I could be accepted with my educational background!

Just goes to show that with dedication and passion, you can achieve the things you want in life.

Data Science!

This is NOT the way to use a Smell-o-scope

It’s a three year degree/apprenticeship, so I’m going to have to study hard like a regular student. It’s going to be a while before I can call myself a Data Scientist, but I will one day.


In other news, I submitted my latest project in the Udacity Nanodegree and passed again. I procrastinated a lot this weekend, playing games instead of finishing the project and even not writing. But this morning I buckled down and submitted my project, sure that it would need revising. But I was wrong, the project included everything it needed to pass.

It’s good to doubt yourself, as long as you still follow through. Better to add a little too much before submission than too little.


The other good news is that I completed Plants vs Zombies for the first time this weekend, that Zomboss eh? What a tool.
