It may have been the 4th of July yesterday but I was not participating in the celebrations which typically include day drinking disguised as picnics. People were lighting off fireworks while I continued to navigate my way through Dreamweaver. I did have some breakthoughs yesterday which was relieving and exciting to be able to figure how different aspects work together. Being able to recognize where to find things and navigate around Dreamweaver after three days is a relief. In the beginning learning this program was feeling close to impossible but only after three days I'm able to navigate and design with some confidence.
Headed in the right direction!

It's been about six years since I first started using and learning about the Adobe Creative Suite, and for the first time in those six years I'm starting to learn Dreamweaver. When I look back at learning Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign I don't remember being quite as challenged. It may have something to do with the fact I have never made a functioning website until I took this class at the Visual Studies Workshop, but through my struggles I'm beginning to feel successful. Do I dare to say that I may even feel rather...accomplished for becoming proficient in Dreamweaver. I still have plenty to learn but I'm working on it!
