Schools Out for Summer

Schools Out!
Isolation’s In.
🤣
Here in the UK it’s been an interesting week. Other than writing this mid-heatwave…the schools are also finishing for the summer holidays. However most schools I know are sending kids home into isolation as the UK tries to get to grips with its awful track and trace system.
I visited Leeds recently to take part in something (which I’ll be able to share with you next week!) But on the way home I walked into a restaurant, stayed for 30 seconds and then left.
5 Days later I get a ping on my phone and told to isolate. The app had recorded me as being there from 3.15pm through to midnight! Needless to say, I’ve now uninstalled the app, as many people here in the UK are also doing.

This week I also completed the 6 Week ‘Part Time YouTuber Academy’ course with Ali Abdaal, which I found really insightful and had 2 calls per week with Ali himself to get some guidance on how to improve my content and overall channel. I’m treating my YouTube channel as a business - and just like I coach other IT Business owners, I felt it was important to get my own coaching from other ‘YouTubers’. Ali is just one of those coaches, and I’ve learnt so much!

Me and the wife took our RYA2 and VHF License this week too - which means we can officially pilot a boat and use the radio! You don’t legally have to have a boat license here in the UK, but to cross waters in Portsmouth you DO have to have a Radio license (because Portsmouth is such a busy harbour / commercial ships / navy ships etc). So we endured 2 days in 30+ Degree heat whilst we got our badges. This is another reason why I love my new life post-exit of my IT Business!

@9to5mac @joseadorno Apple Watch like mode? You mean always on display like Android has had for years? 🤦🏼‍♂️
And lastly, whilst I continue my journey on switching from Apple to Android, I find myself becoming more and more annoying to myself! 🤣
My Favourite Things This Week
Boat - I’ve spent most of this week on a boat - so it’s by far my favourite thing! haha
TV - I’ve just taken delivery of the LG C1 TV. Absolutely incredible - Video going up on the channel on that very soon.
TV Show - Ted Lasso Season 2. If you haven’t watched it already, check it out - it’s really, really funny. Which is weird, because it’s about football, and I really don’t do football! But definitely check it out :)
