Today I built page two of my portfolio page! I was able to concentrate more, and get distracted less. At one point, I got so sleepy at 10pm that I just wanted to take a long nap.
But I reminded myself: if it’s not hard, anyone can do it. Train your relentlessness muscle, Joy. Then I got up.
And as I predicted, it only took me 5 min to get back on track again. Because as had happened before, once I got started, I simply couldn’t stop — I just had this strong desire to make things beautiful. And that led me to google, experiment, adjust … I was in the moment.
Today is Day 15. I spent day 14 watching youtube videos and felt really empowered to build my own page. But day 15 didn’t happen until almost a week later, and it was always so hard to regain momentum after that long of a break.
I procrastinated. Watched some youtube videos. Read some facebook articles. Baked some yummy kale chips. Even took a 30 min nap at 10pm … ahaha.
But then I started coding again … ! So many questions one after another. How do I keep this background image appear?? Please, can you stay there, just not move while I move the h1 tag? Wait, seriously, just don’t move, I’m adding margin to the block element, not you, background image!
After a lot of googling and creative problem-solving, I somehow made it work! I felt soooo in love with the process in the end, because now my mind was all about making the site pretty, and I loooove making things look pretty! It just felt great having the freedom to assign whatever color, margin, width I want to any element of the website.
So here it is, page one of my portfolio website. It’s far from perfect, but I’m really content for now!
