Happy New Year! What a year 2020 was, eh? I found weeks would pass and it was hard to differentiate one from the next. So for 2020, I have decided to keep a diary, to keep track of things I have done and learned week to week. I find it easy, particularly in these "stay at home" times, to feel like I am not achieving much but I thought I'd write down and share what a week as a developer is like, for me at least 😊
What's been happening?
It's been a pretty chilled out start to the year for me, having spent most of the break in a massive hoodie, crocheting, sleeping and recovering from 2020. This was my biggest tech break in a very long time, I didn't open my laptop for 10 days over Christmas and New year! Then we hade the Scottish bank holiday meant a nice long break not returning to work til Tuesday 5th, which was lovely.
I have been taking part in Yoga with Adriene's 30 yoga journey. I have made it 7 days in a row now, which I am super happy with. It's been a nice addition to my days to take some time to relax and exercise. I am trying different times of day to see what suits me best, we'll see how it goes!
Alot of podcasts for me as usual! Less tech content than usual over the holidays, a mix of crime, TV, politics and just funny chats.
I have also been loving this playlist of music from TV show Scandal since I have been binge watching over the holidays.
I plan on documenting on the tech or career learnings week by week. This week I was mostly just trying to get into a routine. Let's start next week.
Over the festive break I have watched alot of football and TV!
I really enjoyed 'Little Fires Everywhere' on Prime video, a mini series based on the book with Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon.
Murder on Middle Beach- a 4 part true crime show trying to solve a crime from 2010.
The Mandalorian- We finally finished season 2!
... And like most people watching alot of news as current events have been more dramatic than Film or TV
Goals for next week:
- Keep doing daily yoga
- Daily skin care routine
- Catch up on meetup organiser admin for Q1
