Hello, and thanks for stopping by! My name is Kim, and I’m a student at University of Phoenix. I am one of those people who tries to learn something new all the time. While I have mastered the art of social media and most things Internet, please do not ask me anything about programming languages. Javascript and all of the other ones are as foreign to me as French, German, Russian and every other language besides English. My roommate is in IT and she says that it is not very hard to learn, but I think that I will stick to focusing on things that I know about. Just thinking about it makes my head hurt.

So why this blog? There are online courses for beginners and I am being urged to take one. I am not sure why it is so important to her that I learn this in particular. I suppose she thinks that I should embrace this and try my best to stay ahead of the curve. I know that this is way over my head and I will leave that type of thing to the pros. On that same token, my nephew says that he wants to take a Javascript course. I will be a nice aunt and help him find a decent one. But anyway, I wanted to document my travels in the world of Javascript, and hopefully help anyone else on the same journey.

I am obsessed with technology, yet I do not know much about what makes it work. While things like sending an email and using social sites are easy, I want to learn something harder, like Javascript. I know many people who are adept at it, but none of them is really able to tell me enough about it that I could master it myself. This is why I am going to take a course and learn more. Since I am not sure about how anything works in that arena, I am going to take one that is well-suited for beginners.

The problem is finding a class that can teach me a great deal without me having to give them all of the money that I have in this world. I have looked at a few of the community centers in my area, but none of them has a class like that. I am going to look around on the Internet to see what I can find. If I cannot find one, I am going to ask around to see if one of my friends has any information that will lead me in the right direction.
