- Gain Prince2 Foundation qualification*
- Upgrade old desktop PC, just for the sake of it
- Learn the very basics of Ruby using Hackety Hack (though my install doesn’t seem stable)
- Database skills: something that will stop me screaming in anger at Excel, Access etc…
- Turn some of my random story treatments and scribblings into an interactive fiction.
I may spend the rest of my years doing admin and project management, and that’s fine – the above things all plug in to that and anything achieved adds value to that role.
