How I got into uni after I thought I never would

Since most of my days are now split between inventing things we can do while locked inside the house, and which will satisfy a short-attention-span of a three-year-old, and finishing all my uni assignments, I have literally no time (or power) for any extra-curriculum learning. Sad, but that's how it is sometimes. After all, we are all just humans, right? Anyway, I thought I will tell u a little story of how I got into Uni after I thought I never would be able to.

The good thing about them, you're learning a lot more than just what's on the agenda...

Work In The Web 2020

One of my resolutions for this year was to be open for any opportunity "knocking on my door". So when I got an email from my course leader about 'Work in the web' workshop, I didn't hesitate to apply. In the end, I had nothing to loose, and loads to gain!

December reads

Another month of some great reads! Due to the Christmas break, I haven't managed to read as much as in November, but it's about quality not quantity, right? Ok, let's get started!

November reads
