Surviving Semester 1 of 2014

Semester 1 of 2014 is finally over! It has been such a tough first half of the year with the heavy study load from my classes. I was enrolled in a core team project that involved the development of a Web Application for a children’s hospital to go paperless. Each team was allocated five members to complete the project. Unfortunately, the team I was assigned to wasn’t as proactive as I would have liked. What resulted was two out of the five members completing the entire project for the semester.

This resulted in having to drop one of the four courses I was enrolled in to allow enough time to complete the assessment for all my courses. I also work 35 hours a week which put a bit of stress on myself. As majority of my time went into the Web Application project, I had to sacrifice the quality of my assessment pieces for my other courses. I’ve decided to fix them up and complete them so I can use them as a foundation for my portfolio.

The first assessment piece I’m fixing up is my PHP assignment that used IIS on Windows for development and a supplied Amazon Web Server for production. As I’ve been using Ubuntu a fair bit within the last year, I’ve decided to set up a LAMP configuration for development to learn more about the Linux environment. I currently use BitBucket for source control, so I’ll continue from where I left off.

The end goal is to set up my own Amazon Web Server and host my PHP assignment.

Such detail! Love the work.

Some of you may have seen this when I posted it last year as a monochromatic piece. I’ve since redrawn about a third of it and fully colored it in honor of this scene’s depiction in tonight’s episode of GAME OF THRONES. VERY EXCITED to see what they’ve done with my favorite scene.RV_spoiler_redux_web

My wife is a lazy liar

Rather enjoyed this read!


It’s the last day of school for my lazy, lying wife. She says teachers still have to go to work, but that can’t be right. Teachers only work when the kids are at school. I wish she would come clean and admit she is not really a teacher.  School starts around 9:00 and dismisses at 3:45.  She leaves the house before seven each morning, and it’s only a fifteen or twenty minute drive to the “school” where she “teaches.” She comes home around six or six-thirty in the evening. Sometimes later. What is she doing with all the extra time?

6:57 a.m. and the bag lady leaves the house. Looking for an OTB parlor that opens early. 6:57 a.m. and the bag lady leaves the house. Looking for an OTB parlor that opens early.

When she gets home, I make sure dinner awaits the slacker. It’s a wonder she doesn’t demand I spoon-feed her. After dinner, she works on “lesson plans” and “grades papers.”  The way she describes…

Just feeling down today

That feeling where I struggle to concentrate and undertake such simple tasks has hit me. I woke up feeling absolutely exhausted even though I had a sufficient amount of sleep. I decided to have a tea and then a coffee to help me through, however, the coffee just made me feel that much worse with a touch of gross. I have heavily reduced my coffee intake from 2 – 4 coffees a day to once every Sunday morning. Prior to that I was only drinking coffee whenever I was out of town. Reducing the amount of coffee I drink has helped me save money as well as provided me with a lot more energy to get me through my days. This kind of encourages me to cut coffee out of my diet entirely.

I have really run myself down by repeatedly working nights and having limited sleep each night due to my early starts for study. I have decided to make some solid life changes to get me on track to where I’d like to be in the near future. I’ll minimise the amount of coffee I am drinking even more than before. I’ll start drinking more water and incorporate a cleaner diet. I’ll ensure to prioritise my fitness and health. I’ll pay off my debt so then I can make my move out of my home town for when the time arrives.

I want to be much happier and feeling great about myself. I intend to make time for myself so I can regain my energy and spend time doing things that I want to do. I also want to make a point of getting off working nights to help fix my sleep pattern.
