Submitted my application for a student loan

Posted by on Sep 6, 2014 in Blog, Education

That’s right! I’ve just submitted application for a student loan request to the Student Finance England website. Hopefully, it goes through and I receive it back as early as possible. Thinking about it now I probably should have applied for this a lot earlier in the year.   This is the same course that I’ve wanted to do since the beginning of this year, and I’ve really only come around to just going in head first and actually doing it. I did go to an open day that Birkbeck University setup just around the corner from where I work. And from this I talked to a professor teaching the ‘Web Technologies’ course at Birkbeck. I told him a bit about myself, where I work, what I do etc and somehow from this he said that his only concern was...

Back to Studying Web Development?

Posted by on Jul 26, 2014 in Blog, Education, Life

In August, last year, I briefly touched upon the idea of wanting to go to university to study ‘Web Technologies’ at Birkbeck University of London. I’ve since not followed through on this and that is due to the fact that I’ve been busy at work and generally a little stressed. I have aspirations and personal development goals – gaining a qualification from university is one of them. I’ve yet to fully work out how it will work. But from the way that I’ve worked and the passion that I’ve shown, I feel I have the right motivation to do something like this now. Before working at ZenithOptimedia, I don’t think I had that and as time has gone on I’ve just wanted to better myself and develop my skill set. I now have a focus on life where before I had...

Tower Hamlets College — Learn to communicate

Posted by on Aug 22, 2013 in Education, Life

I am in a pissed off mood today as the college that I signed up to do an “Access to Web Design — Standards” course is suddenly no longer doing the course due to lack of interest/students. I usually wouldn’t be annoyed at something like this. This is, however, a course that I signed up for last month. I also had to do a Math and English test to get into this course. I passed those with ease and thought I was on my way back to a life of education in a field that interested me. Of course, as usual with my life — things don’t always turn out to be what they are and whenever something is going well there is always a downer to cause stress or to just piss me off. I am actually quite...

Studying hard…

Posted by on Sep 26, 2011 in Education, Life

I don’t know why, but I am re-motivated to learn Chinese now. Maybe it is because of this quote and combined with my medicine that I am taking, it let me think thoroughly about what this actually means.   I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. – Nelson Mandela  But today I never conquered my fear. It will take time for me to become more confident with Chinese and a lot of studying will have to be involved. My brain sort of freezes when I’m up in front of everyone trying to read a dialogue which is in Chinese. I mean it isn’t as if I don’t know how to read it or how to memorize it, it is...
