#4

Hey there, friends! You're getting a 4 for the price of 1 special this time, as I've spent the last 4 weeks or so in an a bit of a hole. Good news is: I'm feeling a bit better 🙂

Maybe all I needed was to do absolutely nothing except play Assassins Creed for a really long time 😅

At any rate, not much has happened over here, but here are the headlines:

Did

  • Hyper Monday! This was on the 16th of November, I got so much done✝, but also, I knew the crash would come 🙈
  • In an effort to see the outside world a bit more often, I started playing Pokemon Go again, and it's been really fun 😄 (FC: 1437-9701-7400)
  • NottTechParty: It was such great fun, and lovely to see and catch up with everyone 🎉
  • I kicked off the process to get an ADHD assesment!

✝ Incidentally, I saw this tweet and felt very called out, because of days like this one 😅

Pics

A cream coloured mug with green vines all over and small daisies painted on it. Bought myself a nice mug to make myself feel better

A selfie of me wearing a pair of reindeer glasses: those are brown with antlers coming off the eyes and a red nose linked to them by a short chain. Took a new Christmassy profile pic (pls ignore the deliveroo bag in the background 🙈)

My desk, with some Christmas decorations: I put a santa hat and my reindeer glasses on the homepod, then there are a few baubles and paper trees on the right hand side. In the centre, a big monitor with a christmassy wallpaper of a pile of presents. Entered a Festive desk competition at work

Screenshot of a zoom meeting, with around 50 smiling people with varying degrees of Christmas decorations. The lovely Nottingham Tech community peeps at #NottTechParty
