    Yes! Much progress on day 2 of my #100daysofcode. I mean, I still had to search for 70% of the stuff I added and there was much trial and error, but that’s how learning happens, so win 😀

    Long time no logs! I started the #100daysofcode challenge today! It was a pretty weak day, but I managed to create a veeeery basic outline for my FCC #portfoliopage and learn some more CSS by playing Flexbox Defense. I’m excited to have actual time set aside for coding tomorrow after work 🙂 I’m sure it will help me remember what I learned last year, because right now it feels like it’s buried deep inside my brain…

    Did my second speech at my work’s #publicspeaking group, woohoo! Almost no uhms and this time I remembered to make eye contact, ha. It probably helped that the topic wasn’t nearly as personal as the last one, but still. Progress!

    This week has marked a return to #biking to work after getting my bike fixed, woohoo! To be fair, it has been mostly dry out, but I’m confident I can make myself keep riding when the rain comes back. In #coding news, I figured out my #tributepage on Wednesday! Now it’s just a matter of adding a bit more content, cleaning the code to remove comments I no longer need, and make it look pretty. After that I can submit it and move on to the next challenge! I also joined Support’s Driven 6-Week Writing Challenge (#sdwritingchallenge) and published my first post last week. Want to add some photos and headers to make it friendlier, and now working on #writing the second one!

    I’ve been a bit distracted, but there has been some progress! I posted that Did You Know I mentioned on October 5 #hsadvocate I finished taking notes from ‘Born for This’ #books I gave my first speech at my work’s #publicspeaking group I joined a group of teammates who want to learn #coding and meet once a week. First meeting tomorrow! #tributepage The #datatoinsight Data Learn course is on hold for now, there’s other things I’d like to focus on right now.

    The struggle with the #tributepage continues, but I’ve decided to move away from the border challenge for now and dive deeper into columns, which will probably help! I found Quentin Watt’s Bootstrap tutorials on YouTube and they’re gems: Also started the #datatoinsight FutureLearn course, more food for my brain!

    Gah, #tributepage woes! Now the caption is within the border and both image and caption are centered, yay! However, the border is expanding again. Ah, the mystery!

    Baby steps on the #freecodecamp #tributepage project. Got the image to center and the thumbnail border to not expand like crazy. Now let’s get that caption to stay within the border, ha. Also learned a thing about Google+ link previews in the #hsadvocate day job, let’s make a post about it!
