Learning to Code, Part 3

I got a response from Codecad­e­my acknowl­edg­ing that the prob­lem I expe­ri­enced was on their end. They gave me some code that would let me get past that les­son, but it con­tained a vari­able that was­n’t men­tioned in the les­son. That’s frus­trat­ing, and I don’t know that they’ve fixed it for every­one else yet. At […]

Sleepy, Sleepy

I stayed up WAY too late last night study­ing pro­gram­ming. Yes, for fun. That’s my idea of fun, any­way. I’ve been yawn­ing all day as a result, and I should already be in bed tonight because I need to be up ear­ly tomor­row. So this will be brief. I’ve been enjoy­ing cor­re­spon­dence with a dear old […]

Learning to Code, Part 2

I’m still explor­ing Codecad­e­my, which has proven to be a very inter­est­ing site. I made it through their JavaScript Fun­da­men­tals and found that I want­ed to know more, so I start­ed on their Code Year project, which picks up right after that with JavaScript Con­di­tion­als. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I seem to have hit a bug­gy les­son on the […]

Learning to Code, part 1

I’ve decid­ed that I want to learn basic pro­gram­ming, and I’ve decid­ed to doc­u­ment my jour­ney here.  I already know basic HTML and some CSS. I don’t (yet) know HTML 5, but that’s going to be part of my even­tu­al cur­ricu­lum. I want to learn to pro­gram, though, not just fresh­en my web cre­ation skills. I […]

Lifelong Learning

Now that Katie is in col­lege, I plan to use this site to con­tin­ue talk­ing about home learn­ing, but to change its focus to learn­ing at any age. I’m open to posts from guest blog­gers with some­thing to say about home­school­ing or life­long learn­ing, as well. If you’re inter­est­ed, please con­tact me through the contact […]

On Politics

Plinky asked, “Where do you fall on the polit­i­cal spec­trum?” That depends on where you’re stand­ing. In Europe, I’d be con­sid­ered con­ser­v­a­tive, appar­ent­ly. In the U.S., I’m pro­gres­sive, so I’m con­sid­ered a flam­ing lib­er­al.  I agree with the lib­er­tar­i­ans on some issues, like gun con­trol (it means hit­ting what you aim at).  I also think that […]

What was your favourite part about returning to school?

The NaBloPo­Mo prompt for today: What was your favourite part about return­ing to school? That’s not an easy ques­tion. It was­n’t cool to acknowl­edge being hap­py to return to school each year, of course, so while I was glad, I did­n’t real­ly acknowl­edge it to myself. As a result, it is more dif­fi­cult to access those […]

I still have a hymen (or “vaginal corona”) ? And I thought I just had the box it came in!

Swedish group renames hymen ‘vagi­nal coro­na’ …(T)he term hymen is root­ed in the Greek word for mem­brane. Rather than a frag­ile mem­brane that breaks, how­ev­er, the hymen is actu­al­ly mul­ti­ple folds of mucous mem­brane. The vagi­nal coro­na is a per­ma­nent part of a wom­an’s body through­out her life. It does­n’t dis­ap­pear after she first has […]
