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.
Close Encounters with PHP is up and I can finally go back in and go through this course. Finally, back to being really busy, I’ve been trying to manage my time better. To no avail however.
My son plays basketball and is currently starting on JV and on the bench for varsity. So he has practices nearly every night and games, couple that with working 40 hours a week, I get home and I am beat. I wouldn’t trade it for anything though.
I’m hoping soon, and that’s probably in March, that things slow down a bit. We shall see. I’ll get back to updating this thing more often and I have another Free Code Camp update to post as well. Ciao!
The thing that I have kept going with is the online learning. Code School, Codecademy, Free Code Camp. Three of the most frequented sites. I have signed up for a few others, but those are the three I have been on the most.
I recently caught up with everything on Code School and Codecademy, Free Code Camp I am taking a step back and reassessing the work I previously did (I did it hurriedly). I can do better and want to do so.
My work week is long, and I usually just like to unwind during the weekend, not doing any online learning.
Code School is worth the paid subscription, in my opinion. Codecademy is worth the free part, the Pro part seems to be a little on the expensive side, so I won’t even buy it. Free Code Camp is awesome because it covers a lot more in depth parts of programming.
At some point, I will get the motivation to start going through Free Code Camp again, but for now, I’m giving the old noodle a rest. If you haven’t tried those three sites, I highly suggest you do.
