Monthly Review: July 2015

I tend to think of time in weeks rather than months, so most of my months become somewhat meshed together and lately I have found it a bit difficult to remember things that happened within a specific month. Work has also been keeping me on my toes – let’s see how I go this time.

The three things I’m most proud of from this past month are:

  1. Learning JavaScript by doing an online course, which helped me sharpen my skills. I didn’t give up when it came to doing a JavaScript related task at work – it was very challenging but it turns out I did it in a shorter time than people expected and they were very impressed.
  2. Finally cleaning up my archives page and making some changes to my blog. I’ve got some more updates coming. 🙂
  3. The photographs I took at Blur’s concert.

The three things I’m most grateful for from this past month are:

  1. Colleagues’ help at work.
  2. Apple Music. I’m still on the free trial now, but I have to admit that it has been giving me marvellous recommendations and new music to listen to in the ‘For You’ section.
  3. People who you may never have met, but lend a helping hand for you regardless. In particular, I’m referring to some of my trouble checkers in the categories I am staffing at TFL.

The lesson I learned and am carrying forward with me from this past month is:

If many people tell you that you are doing a good job – you’re doing a good job. Don’t be so hard on yourself.

Because I am brave and wonderful, here are three new/scary things I will do in August:

  1. Meditating.
  2. Oil pulling (look it up!).
  3. Learn some Dutch on Duolingo.
