It's been a bad week workwise. Just not having it with the kids this week. I dunno if it's them or me. I vote them but I'm probably just not sleeping enough or something.

But that aside, learning is fun when you can learn what interests you. It always is, but I seem to forget this? I've been a fan of Coursera since I first ran into it in early 2013, but I seem to only do get the gall to attempt courses there once a year.

They've completely redone the platform since I last used it, and it's been a mostly positive change. Not sure I like the layout as much (the old one was uglier, but it was simple and clear), but I do like how, at least with what I am doing now, all the course material is up from the start. Materials are still organized by weeks and there are due dates, all to help you stay on track, but if you want to work ahead a bit you can.

As for the classes...I ended up signing up for the Python course anyway, as I figure the first two classes of the series will be review of what I studied last year anyway, so should be relatively struggle free, as I (hopefully) will be able to remember core concepts. And HTML5 actually has some pretty relevant changes I didn't know about, like a mess of new tags and a weening off of the div tag (which when I last took a web design class in 2007, we used for EVERYTHING). Pretty cool!

Also um TGS things?
Persona 5, Star Ocean, Lunar, etc )
