Weekly goals review and setting
Past Week Summary
I feel like last week and weekend was a bit of a whirlwind, however, I keep stressing that real life happens. That being said, I still feel great with what I got done.
It was stressful at times but I am happy that I was able to achieve some new stuff this week. Let's have a look at what I got done!
Last Week’s Goals
Continue learning Figma
Create a new resume
Go over creating a mobile menu with my mentor
Implement a hamburger menu on my website
Attend my first meetup
Continue doing 1 part of the JS 30 Challenge each day
Write 2 blogs - Monday and Wednesday releases
According to my list I only missed one item which we'll talk about in a moment. I am implementing the mobile menu into my site redesigns which we talk about after doMore.
What Happened to doMore?
doMore is my little to-do list project and I'll be returning to in the next week or so, however, I didn't feel good with how I was approaching it so I scrapped it for now. I want to tackle it in a more efficient manner so it will be coming back sooner rather than later, but in a better fashion.
So what I did instead, that I'm very happy with was creating ezToggle!
The project is up on my GitHub if you wish to view the code (has since been archived and deprecated)
I've quite a few things I'd like to do/work on this week including new portfolio site designs! I only started working on these on Saturday night but here's the (unfinished) homepage of one of the designs.
In the above version I want to display each section in 100vh - it's presenting some challenges but I'm sure I'll get it down. Whatever my next design is, I want it to just be clean and minimal (in my own sense). I currently have 3 designs I've roughly sketched out.
This Week’s Goals 8/5/19 - 8/11/19
3 Blog Posts
One of which being my first technical blog
Meeting with my mentor
Continue working on JS 30
Anything I create I want to be clean, semantic, and meaningful - No extra fluff
Include some JS but don't rely on it
Continue working through my Treehouse Track
Bonus: Start my React course on Udemy
Another busy week but I don't see myself winding down until I get my first Web Development job. It is definitely exhausting but I am genuinely enjoying the process.
That being said, days or nights off are a good thing. I've been trying to read more which means forcing myself off the computer a little earlier than usual but in the end it's something I want to do and a goal outside of coding I have.
As usual, feel free to comment down below or you can always reach out to me on Twitter.
