Back To Skool

Processed with VSCOcam with lv01 preset

Late last year I heard about a post-grad course that sounded interesting. I went to the information session. I had none of the formal requirements, but did have some background experience, so I talked to the subject co-ordinator and she encouraged me to apply. And I got in. So I’m back at university. I LOVE it. […]



I’m taking an R programming course via coursera and it is certainly stretching me. Sometimes it feels like being stretched and rolled through a pasta maker. But I’m getting there and I’m learning a lot of good stuff. I’ve also been trying to do some small projects for myself; to keep experimenting and build up […]

Maybe it’s the awesome orange shoes. Or the smart corset bustier. When you look closely the fabric also resembles my […]
