2018 Update Number One

Alright, I need to write another one of these things to get something else up on this blog since it’s been almost (or is it over?) a fortnight since I last updated it. So let’s goooooooo!It’s been a relatively low-key couple of weeks so I’m not sure I’ll have much to talk about on an update level. I’ve got another post I’m working on but that could take a bit of time to put together…

Anyway this online course I’ve been doing has been going well. Python is, like most programming languages, relatively straight forward at a base level once you understand the syntax. Now that I’m starting to get the hang of the differences between it and something like PHP or C# I feel like I’ll pickup most of the content in the course quite quickly. Of course that remains to be seen and with my plans for the year ahead I may not get a lot of time to look at it in the coming months.

That’s because I’ve signed up to complete my Certificate IV in Training and Assessment with the aim to get into doing a bit of teaching. Whether that’s at Melbourne Polytechnic or not remains to be seen but it still seems like a good thing to have going forward. I’m a little disappointed it’s a year long course though. For a Cert IV I was expecting a 6 month program. Anyway, I’m hoping there’s an avenue to accelerate at least some aspects of it to get it completed faster.

Our team started back at Trivia last Tuesday. It was actually quite busy the first week but on Tuesday it wasn’t too bad. We really need a sixth member of our team who knows their celebrities and social media though because we are absolutely shit at those questions. Also I’m really only good if the sports questions are about Cricket or F1, maybe a moderate amount of AFL, but I’ll probably luck into knowing the answer about most other sports.

Spent some time helping Layla move house, moved a fair few boxes and helped clean the old place up a bit, hope she doesn’t need to do that again in a hurry! The new place is much nicer than the previous one though, much better and more open layout which should be good for parties!

I think that’s all for now, I’ll be back with more in the coming days*
