Add Another Line To My Resume!

June 16, 2008 at 11:43 pm (Family, Happy, Summer, Work) (, , , )

Today started as a really grey, yucky, rainy day, so I decided to skip out on going to the library today (after all, I worked for 10 hours there yesterday!) and had just settled in with Sabrina (which was actually kinda disappointing) when my father pokes his head into my room and asks me if I know anything about web design.  His company has had a really terrible web page for years now, and he’s finally decided to do something about it.

Fast forward 10 minutes, and instead of watching Sabrina, I’m downstairs, sitting with my father, watching the U.S. Open playoff between Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate (what a great name!) and messing around with a trial version of Dreamweaver that I had downloaded a few weeks ago but then forgot about.

Fast forward 2 hours, and I have barely looked up from my screen, while my knowledge of Dreamweaver has grown by leaps and bounds, and I have not just a single web page for my father’s company – but a whole website with multiple pages and a wonderful custom menu bar!

I wish I knew more about Dreamweaver and had certain other programs to help me make better websites, but unfortunately I’m currently stuck with only the most basic of websites.  Not that my father minds.  He’s thrilled with what I’ve been able to do thus far and can’t wait to keep working with me on it for the next couple of weeks.  In fact, tonight, he was jokingly arguing with my mother (who I work with at the library) over who gets to have me tomorrow!

I’m really excited about this cause I’ve been wanting to learn more about web design and such, but haven’t had any real reason besides an interest to delve into all the possibilities, but now, now I can play to my heart’s content with the knowledge that the final product will actually be going online for millions (a girl can dream!) of people to see!  Now I just need to convince my father to A) pay me for my work and B) buy me the complete Adobe package of design programs for me to use the summer to launch a new career 😀

Happy day!
