Today was more of yesterday, arriving early to work on the interactive I thought would be due today. (Though I did manage to grab a drink — a Sierra Nevada — with my fellow interns at an appropriately, if cheesily, titled bar, the Front Page, before I hopped on the Dupont Metro back. The Metro never fails to remind me of Disneyland’s Space Mountain or Star Tours. It makes me grin and reminds me of California.)
This is why it’s always been difficult for me to explain to people how I’ve learned what I have, and even more difficult to answer the question, “What classes should I take to build your skills?” I’ve learned everything I have through the kindness and patience of people like Kat and Mark, my friends Sam Lade and Sam Stoddard, the WordPress community (I really need to get off my ass and redo this blog so I can say that without feeling ashamed of myself :-p). And having a stubborn streak a mile wide doesn’t hurt my ability to pick up new things, either. Fingers crossed that tomorrow I’ll have an infographic to show off.
