Week in Brief

I didn’t get anywhere near what I wanted to done this week. Things took longer than expected, nothing went to plan and generally I’ve got to the point where I need a break.

For this week:

  • Finish website. With help from my kind neighbor whose cat I’ve took care of a couple of times – happens to be a pro web designer! Need to make some minor edits after feedback.
  • Finish CA Assignment 3.
  • An Introduction to Processing – make slide-deck.
  • Marking.
  • Read 5 papers Managed 2.
  • Keep track of everything I eat/drink for trainer.
  • Go to the gym 4 times – not going to happen. Physio demonstrated that I still need more by forcing my hurt knee to hyper-extend multiple times. So now I’m back to being in pain and unstable :'(
  • #GenYOtt.
  • Recreate conversational graphs from re-factored code.
  • Get started on giant pile of papers.

Also:

  • Great event on personal branding for WISE
  • Meeting with the girls from WISE, have a plan for our January and February talks and some other stuff too.
  • Ordered business cards.
  • Movement on thing-I-can’t-blog-about (wish I could write about it, will share when I can)
  • Had lunch with guy working on open source Java curriculum and my supervisor. Hoping I can contribute! Have some ideas.
  • Took the weekend off! Spent quality time with my boyfriend. Will be extra stressed Monday, but need the break.

For next week:

  • Minor website edits
  • Read 8 papers
  • Clear email… it’s got completely out of hand (worse than ever before)
  • Social Capital, Trust Agents and the New Tribe event
  • Students and Startups
  • An Introduction to Processing – make slide-deck.
  • Marking (again)
  • Gym 4 times
  • Recreate conversational graphs from re-factored code.
  • Implement clique-finding algorithm for Twitter Conversation Graphs
  • Re-read 7 Habits.
  • Get started on giant pile of papers.

Urgh… this can all wait until Monday, right?
