Holiday

Posted on

I feel I needed something written down to act as the bare bones to help me remember. It’s only been a few days since I got back and already I’m forgetting aspects. Day 1 – October 18th We started at 09:40, with a bus to the train station where we caught the 11:00 to London […]

Last week I took my CBT. I am now mobile. I’d always said I didn’t want to learn to drive – I was in a car accident when I was younger and I think this has put me off. Circumstances have meant that I’ve never really needed to learn though, I’ve always lived near good […]

It’s been a while since I posted, and I feel bad about that as I’d been doing really well to blog once a month. Unfortunately my new job meant I was so exhausted all the time! I’d get up at 6am every day then catch two buses to work (one of which was usually late […]

This past month has been quite exciting. I’ve had so many awesome opportunities and taken part in some fun events. I’ll start off with the good news. Volunteer Work On a whim I put my name forward to be a newshound at TrueSteamAchievements (TSA) and I was successful. Now I get to patrol steam press […]

Ladies Beer Coven

Last night I did something that is quite out of my comfort zone: I attended an event where I knew no one. Social events bring out my panicky side at the best of times so to attend one where I didn’t have a safety blanket of a friendly face was a little scary. To increase […]

It was focussed around education but it wasn’t just all about teachers, even though a lot of the people there were teachers or worked directly in education.

So, although I had planned on starting C# again this year, I may have gotten a little distracted with video games. Four came out all at the same time and I’ve been playing them all the hours that I have free. I started with the latest Metal Gear Solid. I’d got pretty far in with […]

Demotivated

Posted on

So the interview date for the website coordinator job I applied for has been and gone. I didn’t hear back from them so I’ve obviously not been considered. This has me pretty demotivated right now and even though there’s a similar position available at the same place, I’m questioning whether to send an application. I […]

Update 13/10/2015

Posted on

Just a quick note to say I didn’t get the job. Tom suggested I ask for feedback and even though I didn’t hold out much hope, I asked for some. It turns out the other applicants just had more experience, which makes me feel better. The rest of this week has been spent working out […]

Quick update on my progress for this week. I’ve been mostly working with WordPress code. My friend’s website that I made the theme for needed a quick check over because of some updates to WordPress. I ironed out all the bugs with that using the theme check plugin to make sure I’ve met the criteria […]
