A Chilly Birthday

Even though the weekend was chilly and the impending wintry weather had spoiled my original birthday plans. Yesterday ended to what I thought was a great birthday week!

I got some neat gifts including a book about JavaScript and jQuery. I’m not using it only for a reference, but also as refresher to deepen my level of using them. Over the weekend I got my first pack of some stickers I designed from StickerMule. I must admit they did a great job with these die cut stickers and will definitely buy some more from them.

I Love Learning!

I love to learn new things and just started using SitePoint Premium a couple of months ago. They have a lot of great courses, and screencasts. What is really great they allow you access to all of their ebooks along with Online Books from A Book Apart and UX Mastery. Great collection of books, courses, and screencasts so you can learn a new skill or brush up on a coding language you quite haven’t mastered yet. I’ve personally taken a couple of courses there along with watching a few screen casts and the instructors were very knowledgable in what they were teaching.  I really enjoyed their newest course which is Getting Started with Backbone JS.  I wish I had more time in my day to watch and learn new things. I know I have already made a list of the many  courses and books that I want to read/watch.

Time Flies By

Time flies by.. It’s already June 3.  So basically half the year has already gone. June is always a month that has some happy times as well as some sad times. What I can’t believe is this June marks 8 years since the passing of my parents. Hard to believe as it seems like only yesterday I was hearing the horrific news from the State Trooper as I lay in a hospital bed waiting to go to x-ray. I miss both of them every single day. I still find myself wanting to pickup the phone give them a call or go see them.
