Weekly review: Week ending January 10, 2014

Posted: - Modified: | weekly

I survived hosting a podcast, interviewing a guest, managing a Hangout on Air, and drawing notes, all at the same time! Boggle.

Also, my citizenship exam has been scheduled for January 21. I should be okay (I typically get 90% on practice tests), but it's a good excuse to practise remembering trivia.

The next few weeks are probably going to be packed. That means I'll need to be extra careful about having enough quiet time for myself!
