End of Part One

That’s my first year of university over and done with!  I can’t believe it’s all over, time really has gone by so fast.

When I walked out of that last exam I had mixed feelings; a lovely sense of achievement at achieving so much over the past seven months, but a teeny wee feeling of sadness as I now have to find something to keep me occupied until September.  It sounds pathetic, but I’m actually going to miss university over the summer.

However, I do have a few bits and bobs to keep me going.  My SQL skills haven’t been touched since 2003 so I’m going to have a SQL for Dummies session in order to hit the ground running in second year.  My husband recently started his own web consultancy business (SHAMELESS PLUG) so I’ll be working with him to build the business up and get his admin sorted, courtesy of my awesome organisational skills.  I’m also going to hit t’interwebs and the university’s resources to gen up on C# and scripting – coding isn’t my strong point but I’m determined to get better at it!

We’ve also decided to finally get round to building that media server and have been inspired by one of our friends to build one with a Raspberry Pi running Ubuntu.  As a huge music fan this is the project I’m most looking forward to and am going to thoroughly enjoy tinkering.  Our daughter has shown an interest in coding so we can use the Pi as a resource for her too – everyone’s a winner.  We do have some work to do though as the pinnacle of her coding career thus far is below, but it’s a start:

10 PRINT "Daddy smells"

20 GOTO 10

Finally, now that I have around four months to myself I can finally get round to watching the hundreds of hours of telly still sitting on the Sky+ box.  Damn you Film4 and your Studio Ghibli season…!
