I completed to Google UX Design Professional Certifcation Coursera Course! YAAAAAAAY! I started the course in August of 2021. So last year I sat down and said let me learn about UX/UI.

I decided to learn about user experience and user interface design because it was something that always interested me. It is also a creative tech career, and that is what I want. I want to…… Continue reading I Completed The Google UX Design Professsional Certification Course On Coursera

This post is about the famous Pomodoro Technique that was started by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s. It is a time management technique that he named after the tomato themed…… Continue reading The Pomodoro Technique: Is it really worth it?
Using Lo-Fi Music To Code and Get Stuff Done
2020 has been a crazy year huh? If you have been following me on my Instagram, you would know that my coding journey hasn’t been all that great this year. As a matter of fact, it has kinda been at a standstill. Why? Well my brand new HP Envy x360 laptop that I bought in December 2019, crashed three times. Not one, not two, but three times. They finally sent me a replacement laptop that that had been refurbished with my original specs. Photo by Sincerely Media on Unsplash I haven’t done much coding, but when I did do a…… Continue reading Using Lo-Fi Music To Code and Get Stuff Done

Where Are All The Plus Size Sewing Patterns?
Where are all the plus size sewing patterns? As someone who likes to sew her own clothes, it is pretty discouraging to see that there aren’t that many brands that make plus size sewing patterns. Things are changing, but it hasn’t been done fast enough. I go to the big box craft stores to check out the patterns from the big 4 made by Simplicity and McCall’s and rarely any of the trendy patterns fit me. For context, sewing patterns fit based on measurements that are different from the clothes you buy in the store. You may wear a 6…… Continue reading Where Are All The Plus Size Sewing Patterns?

PlaceKeanu.com Is The Funniest Image Placeholder By Far
I wanted to bring you a quick blog post about something really funny-the PlaceKeanu.com image placeholder. One of the ways that web developers play around with images on different sites and web apps is to use an image placeholder. Image placeholders do exactly as you think they would do. They hold the space for images on a layout until you put the actual image in the right place. This is how you use the PlaceKeanu.com image placeholder. First add the special Place Keanu url below.Then make sure you add the size for width and height. If you don’t, the image…… Continue reading PlaceKeanu.com Is The Funniest Image Placeholder By Far
Imposter Syndrome And Where I’ve Been
The past few years have been really interesting and really hard. Sometimes I feel like I am suffering from imposter syndrome. I see others who are further along than I am. I have been trying to really hold it all together. Also to top it right on off, even though I have been coding for years with HTML and CSS…when it comes to other programming languages I feel like a complete and sometimes lost newbie. In the past five years, I have had quite a few family members pass away. Just last year my dad passed away after a long…… Continue reading Imposter Syndrome And Where I’ve Been
I Used the Codepen Design Asset From Unsplash
I used the Codepen Design Asset from Unsplash today on a little self-made web development project. I’m still trying to decide if this blog with be strictly tech or what. I think I am going to do a mix of my life for now, but here is a little tech project I made. This is what I used to make this project: HTML, CSS, SVGs for the background from Hero Patterns, and of course…the Codepen Design Asset from Unsplash. I started on this project out of the blue. I was looking for fall themed stock photos from Unsplash. Unsplash is…… Continue reading I Used the Codepen Design Asset From Unsplash
