Stuck at 98%

16 Oct

I’ve been procrastinating – with a lot of things really.

The one that brought me to writing this is that I am 98% finished the codecademy Javascript course with only the Blackjack game remaining. And I’ve already put a lot into that as well. I just need to get off my lazy ass and finish it. Instead, I’ve allowed myself to get distracted by the new courses in python and ruby. I think I’m going to have to set aside a night and get this finished though.

The problem has been that I put javascript aside for long enough that I’m starting to forget the syntax. I think tonight I’ll print out a couple of my old syntax guides (perhaps update them and post them here) and get back in the saddle.

I also have an ePublishing workshop coming up this Thursday. My (biology) class has been given the day off and I’ve hired a babysitter so that I can go. In my mind it is a good way to network with some people who are interested in ePublishing but not comfortable enough to jump in and hopefully learn some things too.

I’ll be taking the iPad with The Thirteenth Labor of Heracles as a demonstration of a finished product and I’m hoping to have The Curse of Sisyphus far enough along that it can be demonstrated as well. I like the way The Curse is coming along – it incorporates more self-testing opportunities than the Thirteenth Labor. I’m also looking into how to develop my own widgets (another project! Great!), but realistically, I recognize that this is probably a long way off for me. I would love to be able to develop a more versatile version of the interactive image widget to use with mathematical equations.

Oh right, I’m also supposed to preparing for an exam! I’ve written all of about ten questions so far and haven’t even looked at my Jeopardy – review yet. And then the lab… damn. I did make that promise didn’t I?

Well, let’s just see how things go one day at a time.

One last thing: My wife is away for what amounts to two weeks. Day one – two minutes after she left: Dingleberry on the dog. I don’t think the cat has realized what’s up yet because I haven’t found any surprises.

    I started to teach myself Java a while back, as a consideration for getting into programming at some point. I have to say I’m really enjoying it.
