And I don’t have an appropriate photo for this one particular entry, so I’m posting an image of my childhood NBA basketball team. If you have been following NBA as of late, you should all know why.
Ever since my last entry, real life has gotten pretty hectic for me and that I haven’t had the time to even visit and maintain my own sites. In short, I have been developing sites for others, as well as playing new games1 when I get bored or lonely. In addition, I have been seeking a (second) employment also, primarily towards my dream field,2 and have been figuring things out on how to seriously make my portfolio look presentable yet really cool at the same time. It’s been stressful, but fun at the same time.
In addition, I have been celebrating with my family watching the Golden State Warriors finally make history as (possibly) becoming this year’s NBA champions. My parents got married the same year that the Warriors won their last NBA championship3 and now I can finally see history in the making. I became a Warriors fan when my family and I immigrated here from the Philippines, right during the Run TMC4 period, even through the Chris Webber and Latrell Sprewell period, the “We Believe” era, up until today. From this, I have come to learn that jumping the bandwagon is just not acceptable, growing up and supporting all your local teams in general.5
This is just a very, very quick blog entry. It’s almost summer, and I might take another online class at Skillcrush sometime in the season when I can. They just opened a new blueprint that is specifically for mobile web design.6 I’ve always been aware of responsive web design for the longest time, however I still haven’t really taken a grasp on the basic concepts of the feature. I would love to have all my sites be mobile-friendly, so that everyone who frequent their web surfing through their smartphones and tablets would also be able to view my sites without any annoying scrolling (or worse) problems. I’ve got plenty of responsive web design classes already in my Udemy account but still haven’t finished some of them. I think I would stick to my Udemy classes first before considering taking the mobile web design blueprint. Either that or maybe go for the Ruby on Rails blueprint. We’ll just see what happens.
Last, but not least, as of this writing, I only got two days left as a temporary employee. I will be a permanent Amazon employee starting Monday.
