On the Horse, Again…

UpToHereI finally got fed up with myself and how I have let myself get sidetracked from my goal of being a web developer.  I find kind of stupid admitting this, but I have started refresher courses with CodeAcademy.  I blew through the first HTML/CSS course and even felt interested enough to try the initial JavaScript course.  It was pretty fun.

At the end of this month it will be one year since I graduated.  I have not changed or grown much in this year, in my opinion.  I have blogged about my internship and how happy I was to stop.  It was not really because of the tasks I was doing, it was the environment and people I was working with.  I am still at the same job I was last year.  On a positive note I have a client and the potential to have another (if they would call me back.)  It is not like I am not using my degree, things are just not moving along as quickly as I wanted.

Part of the slowness is where I got my degree.  Another part is me not being comfortable with code.  By code I mean JavaScript, C++, PHP and what not.  HTML and CSS, I get.  I do not see them as code, per say, they are formatting.  I am hoping that if I work on my skills via CodeAcademy, and other such programs, I will develop my skills and become more confident in my skills.

At the beginning of the year I was thinking and talking about my “Year of 300.”  We are close to starting March.  I should probably give a status update.

Physical Fitness: 3/300 hours (day to day activities do not count,  I have been bad at exercising this year.)

Web Development: 1/300 hours (just got motivated to do stuff today.)

Graphic Art / Fine Art: 46/300 (lots of this going on this year)
