This mom has skills

 

 

I did it! I have formed a habit of re-learning Algebra in the morning for at least 30 minutes to an hour.  Of course, this means that I am rising at dawn – before my kids are up for the day.  Oh what a mom can get done in just 1 hour if she knows the next time she will have to herself is after they fall fast asleep for the night.  Which brings me to the second habit I have formed, reading my ‘liberal arts’ assignment in each night.  I usually read at least 20 pages during this time, if I’m feeling froggy I’ll leap for more!

Here is a blog posted by Uncollege.org that explains why habits work.

 

The new book is “A Whole New Mind: Why Right -Brainers Will Rule the Future“.  My mentor/husband @sorriv chose this one as well because he believes Daniel Pink (@DanilePink) does a great job in explaining the human traits that are essential for personal and professional success/happiness.

 

I have always been interested in neuroscience so the title of this one pulled me in. Stay tuned to my blog as I highlight the lessons learned from this book.  For those who don’t know me personally I am “right brained”. At least, I think I am.  

 

I also just finished the 10-day boot camp at skillcrush.com and I am coming out of it with a good understanding of what a programmer has to know and understand to be successful.  I feel confident that learning to be a computer programmer is something that I can do.  Kudos for me!  I really enjoyed this FREE boot-camp.  After reading and completing each task for the day I found myself looking ahead to see what I would be learning the next day.  Curious?  I think so!  Would you believe me if I told you it was super fun as well?  I am a hands-on learner and what I liked most was being able to practice what was taught within the interface provided.  I learned the basics of HTML along with some Ruby.  I thought it was awesome to able to go back in the saved code throughout the week and update or change what I did before.  I have bookmarked a great HTML resource and recommend you leverage it too!  I recommend using SkillCrush to determine if you are interested in learning to code. Thanks @SkillCrush


I have had, what I would consider an amazing start to hacking my education! I  finished my first reading assignment, a coding class, and most importantly I’ve formed two habits!  This mom has got skills. 🙂
