The Re-Education of Dana

I started this email correspondence course on web page design. It focuses on HTML 4.01. I am decided to buckle down and get serious about studying. The course is through about.com. I have a lot of refresher things I need to work on so I am going back and getting some understanding on those things as well. I think if I can start practicing the codes in Microsoft Word, I should be able to have something up and running within a month or so. I want to be able to fully build a site from scratch.

I feel like I’m in high school again trying to memorize all of the different HTML tags. I am tempted to make flash cards. Anything that move the process of learning everything along faster.

The idea of solely working a home, takes a lot of getting used to. Besides becoming somewhat of a recluse, I seldom go out and spend a great deal of time with my daughter. It is immensely rewarding to be able to see my daughter day to day. The limited human interaction I have been getting was just an inadvertent consequence of my job switch. I am scared, but not in the traditional sense. I am on the verge of something that I can’t quite put my finger on. I am close to finding my niche.
