I’ve been a bit AWOL the last week. I ran the London Marathon and a combination of recovering from the race and recovering from the hangover that the training inflicts on the rest of your life, in terms of time lost to running, has taken up most of my time.
Having said that I am now back on the coding game. I managed to find a spare hour on Sunday morning to do some more HTML and CSS work.
I have exciting news too. I have completed the first HTML and CSS course on codecademy. And now I feel EPI… Cut! No. Unfortunately I don’t feel epic (those of you outside the UK will feel completely lost by that reference, sorry not sorry). Despite having completed the first course I feel far from being a pro.
There’s still so much I don’t know. Especially when I thought about setting up a basic webpage and didn’t know where to start in terms of hosting or what programme (if any?) to use to create it. It’s dawned on me quite how much further there is still to go.
Having said all that my absence hasn’t seen me forget about coding, it hasn’t fallen to the bottom of my to do list only to disappear off it altogether. Every day I didn’t code I was distinctly aware that I hadn’t. I was itching to find a spare half hour where I was neither busy nor exhausted. Like a true love story absence really has made my heart grow fonder.
Finally as a small side note, I’m now on twitter so follow Tek Fish at @tek_fish for blog updates as well as some bits that won’t make the cut.
