It’s my 32nd birthday today and I’m looking back on a year full of adventure, opportunities, new friends and scary challenges.
When I was in my early twenties I was sure, by the time I’m 32 I would have it all figured out. I saw my future self as this put-together woman that had a great life, a career, high heels and a plan.
Well, put-together might be a stretch since I'm currently wearing yesterdays makeup and a far too big metal shirt I stole from my husband. I have a great life even though it turned out very differently to what…
Throughout my life all I ever wanted to be was an artist of some kind. I wanted to be an author, a poet, a painter, a photographer, and later, a developer. To me, being a developer has always been about creativity, about the act of creating something that wasn’t there before. As a frontend developer I love to create something beautiful that gives people joy visually and offers great user experience.
And with becoming a programmer, I was given a tool I could misappropriate to make me an artist again: CSS.
