then in December I started the Data Analytics nanodegree --- it was SO BORING --- I was forcing myself to watch more than one video a day and answer more than one question a day from the assignments 
[...]
the nanodegree was so boring and I just didn't have the discipline to do it 
so I ended up cancelling after 3 weeks

I was considering trying out some of the courses in the Data Science career track. Data Analytics is one of the Nanodegrees/Courses suggested for that track. If it is as boring as you say, I don't know that I'm that interested in it either.

Of course, I don't have time to start on the course right now and considering the sale ends today I probably won't have the chance to pick up anything.

That's just 40-80 hours or so, I hope to finish it in less than a month as I pay the Monthly fee instead of the default 2 months.  Basically, I got this one because it hits both of my interests - Artificial Intelligence and Product Management.

Question: There are multiple nanodegrees I am interested in, but can't start them all in one month, can I order them today and then start one after I am complete with the other? Like Staggering them one after the other?

And Oops - LOL, Carla is a bot!  It was Sherry who was really helpful and I got to chat with her again today.
Her reply: As soon as you enroll, your program will get started right away! We suggest enroll when you're ready to study.

Then I got my hands on the Data Streaming Nanodegree which also starts today! It has the same recommended time frame of 2 months of 5-10 hours/week.  I think I can complete this in a months time as well, so just purchased the monthly deal.  

I am eyeing my third purchase right now, haven't pulled the trigger, I think I want the Data Analytics Nanodegree as well.  It starts Jan 21, but has a 4 month estimated time of completion, 10 hours/week.  I'll decide by the end of the day.  I think if I "hack it quickly", I can finish the first two in a month, but this one will take me another month at the earliest or fastest...

So, how many did you purchase?

I make two purchase and Sherry told me to make sure that I can handle them. Rolleyes

EDIT: I think the sale is extended. But I don't know until when the sale takes place.

I only bought two, the AI Product Manager and the Data Streaming. I put the Data Analyst one on hold for now, will probably do that one after these two or whenever they have another sale. I don't think I can handle three at once, even though the Data Analyst can probably be slowly completed within two months time. Basically, going to put in roughly 40/60 of my energy/time into these two nanodegrees, I will need more time for the Data Streaming as it's slightly more technical in nature.

I've been interested in UX but never done anything like that. Does anyone have experience with their UX Design track? DO you think you need a tech background? It sounds interesting!
