It’s a familiar story. Many just like me have started off full of high hopes and false promises that within a year we’d all be churning out some of the best website and smartphone apps the world has ever seen, but what we didn’t factor in was life. Life gets in the way
For me it was a question of depression and unhappiness with life that led me to neglect the lessons, I was getting frustrated with work and many things about my life and I needed a way out. Travel was it, coding was not.
Time passed and the amount of time between lessons did and now a full year later I’m no closer to figuring out most of the stuff that keeps my travel website AngloItalian, Follow Us! alive. But that’s all about to change…*
* actually, it already has.
Why I’m Back On Track
Over the past 12 months of travel and blogging the entire way I’ve really developed a taste for HTML. There’s just something about it that I find interesting and darn right sexy to look at (maybe). The only drawback that I’ve found so far is not knowing enough about the language that I have to purchase a theme for the site, constantly have to ask for advice on how to customise it and use other peoples code to get the changes I want. It’s frustrating.
On top of that, as we began to approach the completion of 12 months of non-stop travel we started to hear from lots of our friends that they all we either getting married or had buns in the oven.
Where To From Here?
One of the lessons the past twelve months has 12 months has taught me is that you have to grab things with both hands if you want them and that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
I could really go on about the reasons behind my wanting to learn to code and their connected to ideas and thoughts from my travels, but I’m going to leave that maybe for another post where I can go into more detail.
What I’m promising to myself is not only to keep on top of my training, but also to keep notes and relay my progress here for all those concerned about how things are going.
