Today I travelled outside my comfort zone.
A little foggy in the head on a rainy Saturday morning, I entered the world of web coding.
For those of you that don’t know me, allow me to explain that I am a dreamer and a writer, a jack of all trades and a master of none, a communicator and a problem-solver.
What I am not is detail-oriented. I don’t like spreadsheets, I am bored by details and I find myself in extreme dislike with anything that requires too much attention and close consideration – what I call babysitting.
Yet somehow I found myself staring at lines upon lines of indecipherable slashes, brackets, semi colons and the odd word in a Ladies Learning Code class.
At one point I broke my entire, newly designed, practice website because I accidentally deleted a single character. I was not meant to have this skill.
But at the end of the day I realized what I was meant to have, the fulfilling feeling of having learned something. I attempted something outside by normal skillset and I had built something I never thought I would have had the patience and interest to create. I felt great…about myself and my new creation.
Immediately I knew this journey belonged on this blog because sometimes even a short trip across the city can send you on the most epic voyage. Cheers to lifelong learning!
