Weekly goals review and setting
Happy Monday and welcome to another weekly roundup! This is my weekly thread on what I did or didn't do last week, what happened, and what my goals are for this new week. Let's get started!
Last Week’s Goals
Finish portfolio site redesign
Write blog about portfolio site redesign
Video call with mentor
Continue working on Wes Bos' JS 30
Get started on new project
I had less time than I anticipated to complete my portfolio redesign this weekend. I still have to complete the following items:
Add dark theme toggle to website
I've already designed the dark theme, added the CSS Variables, and created the classes necessary. I just need to implement the JS.
Increase whitespace between items on page.
Ensure all padding/margins are consistent
Firstly, because I did not complete my website, I wasn't able to get started on my new projects. I don't think this will affect me in the long run but it would've been nice to wrap up a project at the end of the week.
Secondly, I had a slight change in the design of my site - just the colors and profile picture. I had debated for a while to stick with the profile picture or not but in the end I decided to create and use my logo. In using the logo I had to change the header colors.
Add JS to portfolio site for Dark Theme
Increase the white space between elements by increasing margin & padding
Ensure padding/margins are consistent throughout site.
Do more work on resume
Design rough draft(s) of new project(s) will look like
Continue learning JS and React
Another full week is on tap here but that's okay! I do feel like I need a day off, however, I might push through until Classic WoW releases next week - is anyone planning on playing? I'll be on the Stalagg server!
