I had a look at Qiuiy. I think it’s mentioned in
Handed in some assignment on “Linear Models”– a
unit I’m enrolled in. This assignment emphasized

supplement my Genenetwork work. This has had the
negative side-effect of taking my attention off
work. Juggling [SU] school work, FOSS work and
this course is demanding on my day. Good thing

finished this course by the end of this week.

last week for the “Linear Models” unit. It was
an open-book assessment and IMO it went well.
There’s a take-away CAT whose submission is due
next week Monday.
In one of my classes, some one shared how they

I want to incorporate study(not limited to
MSc. work only) into my daily routine.
Open question: How do you deal with information
overload? How do you deal with anxiety and
There’s a boiler-room event here in Nairobi this
week. Too bad, I don’t have the band-width to
attend this event.
Ideas for “deep” resting: showers, talking to
dear ones, and social events.
