I have now been slowly but surely working through my first book on programming for nearly three months, and I am a WHOLE THIRD of the way through it. Now despite the fact it's title ends "In 24 Hours" I swear I have not been dragging my feet on you. I am just taking it slowly as I a) am really interested, and b) am taking a lot of notes, and am thinking about making some tutorial videos to help join what I have learnt thus far. As the title of the blog post alludes however, I have finally gotten to the part about Arrays, which is part and parcel of the Algorithms chapter, all of which is so fascinating I have had a couple of stupidly late nights just because I have lost track of time where I have been so absorbed in the book and the learning of new things.
Secondly, I have also found some time again to pick up my poor, poor, neglected violin, which has sat in my wardrobe since October. Bless her wooden pegs she was still in tune when I took her out of her case, and sounded gorgeous as I played some open strings. A few scales and renditions of Twinkle Twinkle later, I realised that I may have lost what little muscle memory I had developed, which kind of brings me to the third part of this blog post title.
I'm going to the lovely, far-away, mysterious Falkland Islands again, courtesy of Her Majesties Navy, but I shall be returning again in May to re-do my leadership, which I may have blogged about a while ago ~Whistles innocuously~ So I have plenty to keep myself occupied and focused for the foreseeable future.
Thanks for reading yet an other slightly random update on everything important to me,
PEace and Love
