Home Again

So it turns out WordPress converts html code to characters. Guess the joke in my last post didn’t work. Oh well, live and learn.

We returned from our holiday a week or two ago and have since got back to work. As I half expected I didn’t get time to write or learn while we were overseas, I had far more importantĀ things to do. It was a holiday after all!

On the work front things are changing. My position has been moved from the Service Desk to the “Administration” team within the service centre, basically meaning I am one of the primary administrators of our ITSM tool. It has been pretty interesting in the day or two where I have actually been able to “administer” the system, but the transition project is at a point where we can’t do too much to the system, so I am helping out some other areas currently.

Part of this new role is writing Javascript, and the system is built on AngularJS, both of which are courses I could take at Codecademy. So that is something that I have put on my to-do list when I get a chance. This is all being hampered by the new podcasts I have gotten in to (The Black Tapes, Within the Wires) and new games which will be coming out (No Man’s Sky). Holy crap I am keen for No Man’s Sky.

While I was away I had an idea for an app reinforced, but I am struggling to find time to learn how I would be able to go about starting to create it. By the time I get home from work I’m basically spent, and on the weekends I will spend them with my Patrice or relaxing. I’m considering trying to save time at work and take a whole week off, and use that week for productive things, but I know if I did that I wouldn’t actually get anything done. It’s a tough circle.

Once again I’m going to say how I would like to keep the blog more updated. I’m really hoping that getting a laptop I can take to and from work will help out with that, and, well, I am writing now aren’t I? Maybe I’ll make a habit of it. Fingers crossed!
