So here I am, my first week as a Maker over! I didn’t really do much coding on Saturday which in some ways I’m not too happy about. But, at the same time, this weekend we didn’t have a massive amount to do and I have been spending 12 hours a day at Makers so I think I deserved a little down time. I did however download ‘Zsh’ which is a shell for Terminal/command line. Basically it’s that ‘scary’ MS DOS looking thing but I promise it’s a pussy-cat really! I won’t go to much into what Zsh does but basically it makes your user experience much smoother and you can download different themes. This is my sexy customised Terminal showing off some green RSPEC tests!
Sunday I have spent working on my airport challenge and cooking some packed lunches for the week ahead!
Overall I’ve had a great first week at Makers, met some nice people, had a few teeny tiny lows but I feel like I have learnt, learnt, learnt! I have also really surprised myself with how early I have been getting up in the morning! I’m not a morning person at all and I haven’t had to push myself too much in the mornings to get out of bed.
Another strange thing for me is the routine. I have been working in the hospitality industry for the last eight years and I have never worked in a nine to five job so it’s very strange for me to have any form of a routine at all never mind having the weekends off! I’m finding odd things happen like running out of clean socks because I can’t do my washing whenever I want, and when I go to the shops there are all these strange people there getting in my way!
Most important though, I can’t wait for next week to start! Let the battleships commence!
