That’s it, it’s all done. My first year at the University of Derby is complete, the week following my last day was used to catch up on the huge lack of sleep I’ve had in the past couple of weeks, I really needed it!
The night/morning before deadline day I was up finishing up / preparing my work for print. I handed everything and then checked my prints on the laptop again, only to notice I had a layer turned off when I converted to PDF. FML. I’ll just have to see what I end up with, even so I am really quite angry at myself.
Today I purchased new glasses (finally!) after having my eye test 8 months ago, I have finally got around to getting new glasses, they’re nice and I have got 2 of the same pair, just in different colours because they were on buy on get one free. Super pleased.
I’ve started to write the code for a small Arduino project I’m working on (for Windows only at the moment) but I’ll be working on this properly in a couple of weeks time when I have all the time in the world to plan, write and test the code properly.
I’m also planning to start designing a new website for myself. Just a simple one where I can blog and share photos, and bits of code. Possibly some uni work. Thinking about using SquareSpace, just because I really can’t be bothered with the whole design process, because I don’t enjoy it anymore.
I’ve also really want to re-arrange my workspace. I’ve been looking at a couple of 23” Acer external displays and a ViBook USB graphics adapter to allow me to run 2 external displays from my MacBook Pro, and also from the Windows machine I sometimes use to run Visual Studio for University work. I also want to get some nice lighting and a plant.
