Well, I'm finishing up my first year of school at Northwestern and since my final class isn't offered this Summer, it looks like I'll be back in the Fall. This year we did a little front-end programming, but the focus was mainly on UX/UI (User experience and User Interface) and Information Architecture.
I did a paper on Instagram this semester and as an avid Instagram user I was interested to find out so much about their history and changes they've made throughout the years. If you want to check it out, my paper is on Medium.
It's been a long and terrible winter, so I'm happy to see Spring arrive. It even felt like Spring today with the sunshine and warm-ish weather.
In other news, I've started a new Wordpress blog where I talk about learning web development. Right now it's under the boogaj name over at boogaj.wordpress.com. In conjunction with that, I've decided to move my website for Black Sheep Bags over to Wordpress and I'm practicing all my skillz on it. You can check out the fledgling site at blacksheepbags.com.
Ack! I just decided to try figuring out and using Twitter this week and then Google+ comes along. Who has time for all these sites and why can't everything just happen in one place.
I'm thinking that if Google+ is successful, it will take the best of FB and the best of Twitter and merge them into one beautiful site. I have high hopes after playing around with it a bit, but only time will tell if it is adopted by enough people to become successful.
(As an aside -- circles are awesome. Don't you agree?)
Ooooh! My new HP Envy printer just arrived and I love it! It's so little and wireless and sleek! I'm already loving the fact that I'm not pulling the printer cable from one printer to the next. It was a pretty long cord, but still. And the fact that I can print from my iPhone (and soon, my iPad) is pretty exciting too.
Bye-bye, huge, non-wireless printer. You served me well for many years, but it's all about wi-fi and you just can't compete.
(No, HP did not pay me, or give me a printer or anything like that to say nice things about them. Heck, that sure would be nice though, wouldn't it?)
