As the title of this update says; I’m back! Everything’s been silent for a while (just over a year), which I apologize for. Unfortunately things got busy with every day life, so I had to put everything on hold. It was nothing major, but with a day job in the mix, time just tends to get away. But now I’ve got myself reorganized and can pick up where I left off.
So, what’s been happening? Well, there’s been quite a lot over the past few weeks, but over the past year not a lot. I’ve moved into an office rather than trying to do everything from home. Turns out working from home isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. There were far too many distractions, so I’m renting a small office through a local business. They have a spare office that wasn’t being used, and I needed somewhere that was distraction free. Perfect arrangement. I’m almost completely settled into my new office. There’s just a few other things here and there that I need to take care of, but at least now I don’t have any excuses.
I’ve been looking into and enrolling in short courses, both online and through local organisations. Someone at work put me on to MOOCs; free online courses that are available to large groups of people. I’ll go into more detail later, but in the meantime I suggest checking out www.mooc-list.com. At the moment I can’t really give much feedback on how good the courses are as I’ve only just started some of them, but they’re something to check out anyway.
Well, that’s it for today’s update. I’ll try to post something at least every week, and if I need to disappear for long periods again I’ll make an update.
See you next time.
