So I contracted the sequel to the Plague that I had earlier this year, but tenfold. I was on the shelf for over a week. Flu-like symptoms, head cold, chest cold, high fever… this time, this one, hit me hard.
I’ve felt so run down, but I slept about 140 hours last week, I was that sick. So be careful when you come down with something, hit it fast and hard with medicine and hopefully, you won’t be writing a will like I was and a note to my children about how much I love them and will miss them.
I have tried getting into the programming frame of mind, but without avail. I did wrap up the Try Docker course over at Code School the other day, but it was a short course and just touched on what Docker was and the basics. Like the minimal basics.
I will be getting subscriptions to Pluralsight and Treehouse at some point.
Travel season for AAU takes a lot out of me. I drive my son 2 hours away for practices. Driving 8 hours a week for practices only. We have a 2 week hiatus (1 week remaining) from tournaments until we go back to Springfield, MA next weekend. He’s been out all week with a bone bruise and will be back this week.
Which I learned yesterday was school vacation week. March and April vacation weeks come too close to each other.
I tried getting into the Twitch project over at Free Code Camp, but didn’t get too far into that either. The bug has to hit me and I feel so fatigued, especially after last week’s near-death experience, in which I almost called a priest.
Summer will bring relief and relaxation.
Travel basketball is in full swing, even though posts are very infrequent, between work and everything else, my time to post is limited but I am looking to get some scheduling done that will allow for some posts on the road, here and there, more often.
Just finished up last week the Elixir courses over at Code School, so I am going to head over and work on some stuff I have going over at Udemy and Coursera.
Hopefully the summer season will bring some downtime and I can take a few weeks off and enjoy the summer, if it ever gets here to the New England area… more snow in the forecast for this weekend with a tournament to drive to in Pembroke, MA!
My son, being the altruistic philanthropist he is, gave me his version of some strain of the Black Plague to start my new year. When I return, if I should, I’ll be posting more. I’m just starting to get some sort of will to live back, so this will be interesting on how long it will take to get my strength back. Until then, Happy 2017 everyone (all 4 people) that read this, and best wishes.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and enjoy your day, however you celebrate. I’ll be curled up alone in bed catching up on some much needed sleep.
So in an effort to keep those who have been asking me about how I am doing, now that it has been about 6 months without a Facebook account (and it is probably one of the best things I have ever done) I have added a subscription plugin to subscribe to any new posts I create.
As of today, things are going in an upward direction. Full-time at the job, son living with me, high school basketball season gearing up, keepin’ on, keepin’ on. I’m doing something with this domain after many years of it being dormant, so I figured, “Why not just be a place people can check in on me?”
I’m also looking into really diving into Angular 2. I have an application I would like to build and develop and I want to do it with Angular 2. So I am looking into the many different possibilities in undertaking this project and looking for a possible mentor/partner. That is still in the infancy of its stages.
That’s pretty much it. I don’t update ten times a day, so subscribing won’t be a blitz of emails, one a week, if at all. two or three a week if I feel like writing. For now, that is all.
What is going on here? Well, I took the site down. Cleaned the whole thing out. Starting over. Some times, you have to change everything and start all over again. I hadn’t made any changes really to the site in years. I just didn’t have the energy. Life was going on. A list of excuses a mile long. Now I have some time and I am looking to see what I have left in the tank.
I don’t know what i am going to do exactly yet, but I’m working on it. I own the domain, and pay for the hosting. Might as well get my money’s worth. Since I really haven’t been in about 5+ years of owning this site. As for now, I’m just going to leave this here and get to the drawing board. Obviously, I know what’s going to power the site, my old go to, WordPress.
As for the rest. It’s going to be a slow and steady work in progress.
