Adam’s Analytics Adventure: Week 5
I started working for Measurelab a month ago today (has it really been that long?) and fortunately I’m still really enjoying myself. However, it’s no longer the urgent excitement of oh boy! I have a job, like a grown-up! but a rather more comfortable groove of ahhh, spreadsheets and analysis, this is a jolly pleasant thing to get paid to do, and as everything stops being so new and shiny, and I can’t find novelty value in writing about the stuff I’m doing (or am prevented by the fact that all the interesting details are in some way tied up with confidential informations about a client) the format of my weekly updates here is going to shift a bit1. I’m envisioning something a bit like the old Berg weeknotes but we’ll see what happens. I also have some ideas for other things to do with the blog, but we’ll see where we get with that.
As it happens, this week has been a bit quiet on the anecdotes front – lots of plugging away on spreadsheets, chopping and changing and fixing and mending. The only really interesting thing was, as I mentioned would happen last time, I graduated on Monday2:

A month’s worth of coffee habit! However, due to the half-day on Monday, I was only in 4 days this week, and only had had one coffee a day (2 Vanillo, 2 Cioccatino). Is this backsliding?
It’s been a good month, all told. Right now, though, I’ve got to return an overdue library book and eat a burger. Thanks for reading, and I’ll be back with more coffee and nonsense next week. Over and out.
1. though one could argue that it a) has been anyway and b) wasn’t established well enough in the first place to justify a statement of this kind↩
2. I also received my first paycheque so I’m spending my out-of-work hours resisting the urge to order things on Amazon because I can get free next-day delivery with Prime.↩
3. at least until I get tired of the 9-5 and decide to do a masters↩
