I live in a part of the UK that has been under restrictions since March (with a few unrestricted weeks at the beginning of Summer) due to Coronavirus. When October kicked in my mood went a little bit bleaker as the light summer months had been and gone, darker days where setting in and sadly infection / deaths linked to Coronavirus were on the increase. I also got the nagging feeling in my head that in recent months I had stopped doing what I originally set out with this website – coding. I also realised that I don’t think I have done a personal update since November 2018.
The personal update: I highly recommend that people blog about their tech / digital journey, as geektechstuff.com has over the last 3 years given me opportunities to share my passion about technology and the personal projects I have worked on. It has also helped me to articulate ideas, improved my communication skills and even helped me learn (writing down a learning in your own words helps to re-enforce it). Somewhere in all the fun of 2019 I successfully applied for a role working with more Linux based systems, and I’m really enjoying it.
