Journal Day 56 – Productive Day

Today was a really productive yet extremely boring Sunday. Have you ever noticed how boring productive days are? Except productive days are actually time well spent. I spent basically all day today working on the website portfolio project because it was a lot harder than I originally thought it would be. It has been a while since I’ve created any websites and wow I felt so out of it.

It took me around 6 hours to complete the entire website. Early on I was distracted frequently to browsing the Internet instead of actually doing any work, again because I thought it was going to be so easy. At first I tried creating the website from scratch, not using any frameworks or any sort of system. I thought I could just place these HTML objects on the page, apply some CSS, and voila it would all show up correctly. But no, I struggled with that for at least 2-4 hours without getting anywhere.

Eventually I just gave up and got Bootstrap, which made it so much easier. After that I didn’t even have to try anymore, it was a piece of cake. Bootstrap really saved me a lot of web development time, whew. Of course the website I made wasn’t that great because it had to match the mockup, but it wasn’t that bad either. All in all I learned a lot from that assignment. I wish they assigned like 10 website projects a week or something so I could learn faster, but no, they assign one a month.

Afterwards I ordered some Christmas presents online. I ordered four drones, I’m going to give one to each of my cousins that’ll be at the family Christmas party this year. Last year I got everyone awesome personalized Christmas presents probably valued at $30-$40+ each, which was a lot, but in turn I got nothing, some even forgot to bring any presents… Oh well, everyone gets a drone and other random gifts I can give them this year.

I usually give people a new present, plus an old thing I have that I don’t want anymore. Usually the old thing is valuable too, but it’s just that I don’t use it or want it anymore. And I don’t like it taking up space, so I would just include it as a present.

After that, I worked on CS 1101 homework assignments, and then I worked out for an hour. Then I went home and watched programming videos. Yup, really productive day. I didn’t spend much time messing around today, but I’m really tired now, so I’m headed to bed.

To Obs: I had a really productive day today! I got my website portfolio project done, ordered Christmas presents, worked on Homework assignments, exercised for an hour, and watched programming videos. Tomorrow is the start of a new work week though which means I’ll be feeling really bored again, but I’m thinking of taking off from 12/23 through 1/3 to get a break from it all. Anyway, I hope you’re doing well Obs, can’t wait to talk to you again on Friday. Also you have to send me the kind of present you want for Christmas :).

  1. Glad you’ve been productive! If you think a break is what to need, go for it! And if you ever start feeling bored, then I might be able to talk with you sometime throughout the day before you get back to your work.

    For a gift, no clue what I’d like. Maybe program me something if it isn’t too time consuming? If not, just do whatever you’d want to give me 🙂 I’d be happy with anything.
