As I write this post I have a Udemy course playing in the background with the teacher discussing HTML tags. It's a great refresher and has brought a few tags to my attention I wasn't aware of before. While watching the videos I had a brief recall to being back in school, my lack of focus then and how I would drift off into day dreaming or drawing, and yet always passed top of my class. I thought, maybe that little mental disconnect allowed me to remember more some way, so let's try it again. I opened my notebook next to me to find a good space to just sketch while the videos role. The front is full of notes on JavaScript and React that I should revisit and share on here. The back reminded me of my list of year end goals for 2021. Both of these prompted me to instead write an article. Hah.

5 Days of Daily Themes in Review

Every 5 days to maybe a week, I plan on reviewing my previous "daily themes." I want to do this to track how it's working out, what I've covered, where I've fallen short and so on plus give myself some more outlook on what to work on.

Organizing Your Day by Creating Daily Themes

I like to test various methods for organizing my life and getting myself together. I've done numerous options, from scheduling every hour of every day to picking top 3 "must-dos" and carrying over incomplete work to the next day etc. I recently took a trip to New Mexico to visit family and see my brother-in-law graduate. This forced me to step away from tech and the computer and working on projects and such quite more than I have done before, and it was nice. It allowed me to decompress and recenter, come back to who I am at my core.

I promise these blog artictles won't always be about tech/software/the website, but I do feel it's appropriate to talk about updates I make to the site, issues I run in to while making changes and how I solve those issues. This will help to document common problems and how to solve them, hopefully increasing efficiency when updating the site while also sharing these solutions with others who may be using the same or similar tools.
