I keep forgetting to update until it's time to apply again. The past year's been a bit wild. Went from coding bootcamp in March, graduating in July, working at my bootcamp until I was able to get my feet wet with my first software engineering job in November and it's come time to start again.

Taking the time alongside studying to try a little bit of everything! Although I intended to use engineering to further enhance my art background, I haven't really had the chance to put the two together yet as I was focused on getting more experienced programming. So, starting with taking on some freelance contract work which unfortunately I'm not sure if I'm allowed to share yet as well as a few designs for quick toy projects I want to play with via codepen:

Finally getting into blender with Andrew Price's donut tutorial:

As well as exploring making mini-games in Unity- albeit might have to go back to basics here as I'm unfamiliar with Unity's component based game engine and new to C#..

And ending with looking into sketching out some prospective new designs for a portfolio website now that I have the fullstack knowledge to actually build my own! Albeit I love being able to rely on Google's platform for performant image loading, security, and easy editing/posting access, hacking together css/html/js in a blog html browser is pretty limiting 😂.
