Now

What's going on in my life at the moment?


This is where I post about what I'm doing right now. I'm going to try and update this every month or so!
Take a look at nownownow.com for some more inspiration. Thanks to Derek Sivers for the idea!

School

I'm currently studying for my A-Levels, and am really enjoying all of them (although I have a considerable amount of coursework coming up!).
I'm doing:

Tech projects

I'm planning to de-google-ify (is that a verb?) a little. I'm hoping to buy a small server soon, which I'd love to run Nextcloud on - sayonara Drive & Photos!

I'm also working on my Computer Science coursework - it's a app for my school's English department called StoryTracker. I'm really enjoying it, particularly the UI design using Tailwind. This is my main project at the moment!

Plants

I'm continuing to try and keep all my plants alive. I just repotted my new Monstera Adansonii, and wrapped it around a moss pole. I'm hoping it will start attaching itself, and grow upwards a bit more, but we'll see!

Knitting

Currently, I'm knitting an emerald-green beanie. Really enjoying it, although I fear I may have messed up the sizing - it may end up being for a toddler!
I'm also looking for a new project to start on this - I'm thinking maybe another blanket?

Future

Beginning to look at university (agh, scary...).
Like the look of York, but need to keep investigating further!
I've got a lot of open days coming up this month - it's going to be a bit of a marathon! - but hopefully they'll give me a few more ideas.
