Internship: weeks 6,7

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog!

In this post I decided to add this image as for me it symbolizes hard work and perseverance. Why would I talk about it? Because these two weeks were rather complicated and required a lot of hard work and energy from me. At my internship, we moved to coding of the site,  building the theme from scratch and editing it using PHP. I needed to do a lot of reading of WordPress Codex, searching Youtube for related videos and the information there is not always clear and so it is very time consuming. Do not get me wrong, I like to learn new things, just sometimes they are hard to comprehend.

I really like one quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, “You must do the things you think you cannot do.” It always keeps me motivated and pushes me to try new things which otherwise I would be scared to even start. I believe that the only thing that might keep us from doing something we want to try is the fear in our own head which is subjective in majority of cases. This fear would make us procrastinate or even keeping from starting as it blocks our self belief. This was the case with my internship work. I was scared to do some complex things which I did not know in the beginning, Yet the consistency and willingness to proof my fears wrong helped me on the way.

Never give up and be your own hero! Stay tuned…
