Update on my project:

Update: My progress has been slowed dramatically down since my mother got her surgery last week, and I’ve back running errands for her. I’ve been working at least one of these projects  and working on my Javascript for an hour a day.  Slow and steady.  Learning to be kind to myself. Life happens.

Project One:  Meet with Client. Right now waiting on content from client to drop in and we are basically done. The client like the way I set it up simply and didn’t want to add any thing

Project Two: Working on more Javascript Classes. Will be trying to put together a start of draft intake form next week.

Project Three: I’m not sure how to start with creating my own WordPress Theme from underscores but will be googling it 30 min a day to figure out a game plan.

Project #3: Learning to build a WordPress Theme from Underscores.


Project #3: Learning to build a WordPress Theme from Underscores.

Intake:  Meet with Client.
Design: Style Title + Wire Frame + Client Feedback
Development: This well the challenge.
Time Frame: One Year from Start Date

  • Learn to understand what goes into making a very simple WordPress Theme from Underscores.
  • Make a very simple plugin
  • Work with a real client

 “Make Plans, Make God Laugh.”

It doesn’t matter if you believe in God or any higher energies, you know what I mean. For this summer, I was looking to get an internship or pt job but with my mother’s health now hanging by a thread again and my own health been having issues. So I’m going to be picky on what I do with my time.  Right now, I’m not finding a internship or a pt time job that fits what I want to learn, so I need to create it.

Decide that I am making my own internship/pt job working for myself for 20 hours a week. Going to slowly train myself into working 4 to 5 hours a day on web dev during the week.  Have about 3 potential paid clients I am talking to,  one pet project that I am meeting with next week, and one mock project client that I’m planing to use to create a WordPress Theme for using underscores. Going to do a check in at the end of July to see how it is working.

My goals:


  • 1hr:  Lessons + Learning + Reading
  • 2-3 hours: Build site and take notes on what I need to work on
  • 10 min breaks per hour


  • Personal Chef Site
  • Build a site with Javascript with working registration
  • Artist Site w/ Etsy site using underscores to build a WordPress Theme (optional)

    Add projects on:

  • My portfolio on beleestudio.com
  • Github – learn to use version control
  • Codepen to play with options
