The demise of social networks

For what seems like forever, I wanted to create my very own social networking site. At first, it was going to compete with Facebook, have reactions (before they invented it), and use open technologies. I started creating something with my custom PHP, I created the ability to register, log in and add friends. It was going great and my friends were playing around with it. A few bugs were being reported which I would try to fix, and a few months later, I got bored.

๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ 23-mile hike for Macmillan Cancer ๐Ÿ’จ

On the 15th of June, I will be taking part in a 23-mile hike for Macmillan Cancer with a few colleagues from work, and I am super excited to be taking part in this. We will all be training together, but I'm not too worried. I've been doing CrossFit for over 3 years and feel I have it in the bag. ๐Ÿ’ช

My 2 year journey at Lightfoot

My journey at Lightfoot all started because of my struggles with a previous company. I had been given a 3-month trial and during this trial, my work was struggling. The company really liked me as a person and wanted to see me succeed there. They extended my trial by another 3 months and by the end of it, I was still struggling to keep up. I then had to start looking for a position elsewhere, and that's where I found Lightfoot.

A year review 2018

After reading Tim Ferriss' year review, I decided to do something similar. I couldn't go through my calendar as I never use one for events (maybe I should start next year).
