initially started as a Geocities website when I was in 6th grade. Over the years, it has slowly evolved into a place where I can practice and become familiar with web development as it progresses. I started out coding with Microsoft Frontpage, then moved to Dreamweaver. Initially, there was very little coding, and it was all WYSIWYG. However, as I learned more, I could make it more interactive.

I incorporate drawings and blog posts to keep those that are interested updated. Through the evolution of the website, I was forced to learn HTML, PHP, CSS, XML, jQuery, javascript, and the handling of MySQL Databases. I've put online some code samples.

Zombie 5K

Whohohohoho. Look what we have here.

The summer is going well. I got a new HTC Thunderbolt, and absolutely love it. It's basically a tiny tablet, and so I had to go out and buy the extended battery, but it was definitely worth it. The battery lasts a very long time now, and I got it for around 35 or so when it retailed for 60. Probably the neatest thing that I just discovered about it is it's wifi hotspot capability. Because I write all my posts in dreamweaver, and then copy/paste the html into a form that submits it to the site, I usually have to wait for some free wifi in order to actually post what I have typed. However, I can now freely browse the internet, and post this whenever I feel the need to.

The summer internship has been going well. In my off time, I've been running and doing various things. One thing that my friend and I made was a facebook via poster. You can post to facebook from tons of different sources. However, most of them are outdated at this point, as there is a more updated website with the exact same idea here. Still, it was a fun exercise to do to try to make it. In my job I've mostly been messing with Visual Studio and C#, so it was a nice break to get some java/PHP coding in to refresh my memory. I had forgotten a bit how difficult it was to switch programming languages.

I recently commissioned a painting, and am really exciting about it. I'd been thinking about the idea for a while, and finally settled on what I want. I'll let you know more as I get more updates on it/it becomes more finalized. I'll also post a picture once I get the final product.

On a completely different note, why can there not be one of these in Chicago or St. Louis? It's a 5K, but there are obstacles, and the entire time you are being chased by runners dressed as zombies. There was another one I saw that was happening in Nashville, where they actually had, among others, D1 athletes as the zombies, and you signed up in waves (the faster you were, the earlier you started the race, and the faster the zombies are that chased you). What a cool idea. I signed up for the Chicago Half marathon, so there's no turning back now. Should be a good time.
