The other day I was cleaning out my inbox when I came across a message from Code Academy. I quickly deleted the message and unsubscribed from their email updates since I hadn’t used the platform in ages. In doing so I came to the realization that I’ve come a long way. Regardless of how you measure it, starting from my senior year of high school or just in the past year, I’ve made incredible strides towards my ever moving goal, to be a great engineer.
In my last post I talked about how a redesigned my site, but didn’t provide any photos as a comparison. So I wanted to do that quickly here.
Here we have the home page of the old site.
And here we have an image of what we’ve got now.
It seems like not too long ago I was working on redesigning this site and yet here I am again. Things have changed. I graduated, I’m preparing for a big move to Minneapolis Minnesota, and I have a lot more time on my hands. Thanks to school being over I can finally focus on projects outside of my school work. It’s a weird new feeling, the first week felt largely aimless, now in my second, going on third, week of post undergraduate life I’m starting to become more focused. I’ve started a list of projects I want to tackle and skills I want to pick up in these two months of downtime I have. Number one on that list was to redesign this site.
After a long hiatus I’m finally able to get back to working on this site. Being on winter break is truly a blessing for productivity and creativity. I love not being forced to work on school work and instead being able to let my mind focus on the topics I enjoy. Time seems to fly by when you are working on something you actually care for.
