This Week

Life Last week in London so rushing around catching up with people, felt like I spent the week running around but not really achieving very much. Went for lunch at Facebook (fab) and had some good meetings. Spent an evening in Brighton, and ventured out to suburbia for a Science Extravaganza on behalf of Stemettes, which ...

Things To Write When I’ve Nothing To Say

chaos tree

I've had horrible writers block lately. The list of things I can't write yet (or maybe ever) drowns out the things I would like to. And so a Deadline Looms because according to the schedule I'm due to write something and I sit with my laptop open, a blank screen in front of me, and try ...

This Week

Life I have had the most eventful and exhausting week. It started off so well - really great day Monday, progress on on a demo, catching up with friends before I leave London. And then the shower in my apartment broke, I had to move out two weeks early, and I spent the weekend at an ...

R&R

Sleeping coati

To my mind, a good week contains: A day when I don't speak to anyone. A day when I don't take the tube. A day when I don't touch a computer. The first two are easy, a day working from home will cover them (something that I have felt increasingly necessary for my mental well-being). The last one is hardest. ...

This Week

Life In Aberystwyth for iOS Dev UK which was amazing. I spoke on the last day so I was nervous the whole time, but it was a lovely and supportive environment. I learned a lot from the other talks, met some fabulous people and generally had a great time! So tired though. The edge of the country ...

Impostor Syndrome

Windy day

I’ve rejected a number of posts for today, because I worry that whatever comes next will be taken in the context of this. Because today is a day where the schedule says, write about women, and I think, I should write something positive. And there is so little positive to say about women in tech. ...

Exciting News

danbo nature

Sometimes you have to do the scary thing. So here it is: I'm leaving Google at the end of the month. Will post more about The Plan at a later date, but for now suffice it to say I'll be working on some personal projects that I'd love to see if I could turn in to something, and exploring ...

This Week

Life No culture this week which is a shame, although I spent a lot of time wondering around London which was nice! Hung out with friends, including one who was over from Sydney which was awesome. Giving up my apartment is becoming a nightmare. Estate agents are stressful, they are around all the time and keep not giving ...
