The speed at work at caries massively i have noticed during my time at University, in less than 24 hours i’ve managed to type 2903 words, do a loads of screen shots and even go though and check the document ive been working on.
For me thats great, in other assignments at University where ive had to write 3000 words i must have spent well over a month researching, struggling to understand what i’m supposed to be doing, deleting stuff ive done or simply just re wording half of it and generally feel like ive wasted a lot of time.
Wouldn’t it be nice if it was possible to work at that speed all the time? that would mean the majority of essays ive had this year would be out the way in less than a week, leaving months to work on my final year peoject.
Maybe im just a slow worker? the majority of the time i just find it hard to work at a decent speed.
Then again if i look at tutorials I have done for Digiex like the: How to hack a 250gb sata drive to work in the 360 tutorial i have typed 1400+ words, taken many screenshots and made the post presentable in less than an hour. Going at that rate I could produce an essay worth 50% of a module at University in 2 hours… but yet it takes me weeks!
I guess that just shows when i understand something i can go for it, and break it down in to steps for others to understand with ease! Just a random thought i guess, however the main thing is i get there with University assignments.
I thought the whole point of blog posts was to write about random thoughts 😀 I’ll do the same if I ever get the time (I get 30mins to read Digiex each day at work…. it’s not enough). Maybe it seems you’re more interested in guiding people through the world of IT than you are with whatever it is your doing on your university course?
True, i think i find any guide ive done here more intresting than anything ive done at uni to be honest!
I think another point to be raised is that your Uni work is slight more important! You’re going to be worrying more about the content of that than a guide on here. Another point is that you probably know exactly what you’re writing for a guide, whereas for essays etc. 😉 you have to think about what you’re going to write etc. I find easy to write blogs, random thoughts and you just write whatever comes to mind, that’s why I love doing it! 🙂
