Sharing the passion and working hard.

I did get sidetracked doing Uber trying to catchup on bills, but I’m getting refocused back on coding and then I wouldn’t have to worry about bills.  I think I am about ready, but I still have to think too hard about what I am doing, so I need more practice to make it second nature or as close to second nature.  The last couple days of nice weather during the Thanksgiving holiday has helped re-energized me.  It’s really amazing what a couple hours of the sun can do for us.  I have a daylight alarm, but can only use it when my husband and I get up around the same time or he complains that he gets woke up too early. Wah! 😭  But it is great when I get to use it, because it is a gentle wake up as it slowly brightens the room and you just wake up. You aren’t startled or shaken awake, you just open your eyes.  Definitely makes for a better morning.  More

Ups and Downs

Blog from Nov 24th,

Hi!  It’s been a while.  I’ve been dealing with ups and downs; working out my life and how I am going to pursue it.  The bootcamp I originally took was not enough to get a job by itself.  Little disappointed in that, but I did learn a lot considering what I knew when I went [it wasn’t as much as I thought I knew].  I have someone teaching me Javascript and I am also learning via freecodecamp.com. Wish I had found this website much earlier.  It is a free code camp and your projects consist of actual site you will create for non-profit groups.  Awesome! Once you have done 400 hrs you receive a certificate for Front-End Developer and 800 hrs you receive a certificate for Full Stack Developer.  Since I already know a good bit from the bootcamp, I’m cruising through the first part.  This site teaches you HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, jQuery, Javascript, Json APIs, Ajax, [Get Front End Certificate at this point.] Angular.js, git, Node.js, Express.js, and Mongo DB.  I’m filling in the gaps with this and I like jQuery and Javascript.  Woohoo!!  It’s the little things!

Inspiration Found Again

I think I have discovered my inspiration for coding again.  I did not realize I had went into a downward spiral until talking with a new-found comrade in developing on Friday via a meeting at Starbucks.  Ironic I do not drink coffee.  However I do love the smell and for some reason coffee shops are associated with one on one networking/meetings.   More

Pumpkin Season!

Yummy seasonal cookies!!

CRAVE

Pumpkin pie.  Pumpkin scones. Pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin spiced everything! Yes, it is pumpkin season and pumpkin flavoured everything is all around us.

Fall is now synonymous with pumpkin treats and although there may be an overload of pumpkin spice goodies, the pumpkin does give us some great health benefits.

Pumpkin is rich in dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals, vitamins such as vitamin A, C and E.  Pumpkin is also a good source of B-complex group of vitamins like folates, niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), thiamin and pantothenic acid.  It is also rich source of minerals like copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorus.

Not only is the pumpkin full of amazing nutrients, but the seeds are as well.  They are a great source of protein, minerals, such as iron and zinc, as well as niacin.  They are also an excellent source of trytophan.

So if the taste of pumpkin doesn’t get you to eat it…

Help

Sometimes the simplest thing is the greatest.

Full-Time

We’ve been at this “Live Like it Matters Challenge” for several weeks now. I hope you’re more aware of those around you and realize how the smallest choices we make toward others can make the biggest impact.

My wish is that the challenges I issue become the way we relate and interact with those around us on a daily basis. Are you saying hello to strangers? Thanking those you appreciate? Have you stopped the negativity?  Keep practicing. It takes time to make new habits.

Today, my challenge is more broad than the others. The challenge is to be helpful. Wherever you are, to whoever needs help.

Take the grocery cart back to the cart corral for someone who just finished unloading their groceries. Help a mom with the baby stroller. Hold the door open for the person behind you.

There are a million different ways to help. Just look around…

Too much and not enough

I am having the realization that learning too much can be just as bad for you, as knowing too little.  I have been trying to learn as much as I can and my Ruby on Rails skills have suffered for it.  So I am going back to refresh my Ruby on Rails skills and only add learning Javascript as that is used everywhere on everything.  I am taking a Basic Javascript workshop by Girl Develop IT.  It is simple, but being simple does not always imply easy.  There is so much out there and I am at a lapse of just where to go.  I know getting a job in this industry is knowing the right people and that in itself is a large task to deal with.  I want to go somewhere I can learn and grow.  Making the most $$ I can at the moment is not as big a deal to me as learning and getting the experience that will help me become a respected developer in the website development field.  I do love spending time coding.  It fulfills something within me and makes me forget the time I am working on, whatever it may be.  I actually have to remember to boot myself off the computer or I will be coding till 2am in the morning.  Never have I done that with any other career, job or hobby (except reading a really good book).   More

Uber and other things

Life has been fun lately!   I am currently taking a Basic Javascript workshop with Girl Develop It and learning WordPress via Teamtreehouse.  Javascript is much simpler than I thought it would be, which I am very grateful.  I learned so much about website development since April I am completely amazed I remember most of it.  And a good bit of it is self-study.   It is amazing how much you can learn in a short period of time if you are motivated.
