Organising Bookmarks More Usefully

One of the troubles with attempting to be a self-driven learner is that organising everything is up to you. Being in control of how and when learning happens is great, but being told what to learn and when and being directed to the material simplifies so much! So this is what I’m lamenting after my contact Read More

It’s Not Too Late To Get A 2020 Diary Or Calendar

They’ll all be on sale right now, since they’re normally given as Christmas gifts or bought before the year begins. If there is a particular calendar or diary that you want to be absolutely sure you can get, I’d say buy it sooner. Otherwise, waiting until after Christmas is definitely a smart move. Plus it forces Read More

Hello Trello My Old Friend

So a long time ago now, I discovered Trello and became very friendly with it. At the time I was overloaded and disorganised and something had to be done. Trello’s simple card system is like digital Post-Its on a board, and is a great start. However, I didn’t find that it suited routines particularly well. There Read More

Starting With A Study Plan

It’s all well and good having a study plan, but it won’t work if you don’t stick to it. So far, I’m not sticking to it.

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

How Do We Know If We’re Relaxing Or Procrastinating?

So far this Easter Holiday, I’ve completed (though not officially) two courses from the Business Statistics and Analysis Specialization on Coursera and am one quarter of the way through the next one, with two further courses to go. Luckily, this didn’t require me being strapped to the desk for the whole time, I’ve managed to fit Read More

Linear Regression for Business: Review

So it’s been about a week since I started studying the Coursera course Linear Regression for Business Statistics in the Business Statistics and Analysis Specialization. One of my early thoughts was how thankful I am that in this course you can submit your answers on the practice quizzes even when auditing the course. This instant feedback Read More
