Every day during high school I hated waking up in the morning to go to class and learn a whole pile of crap that would in the end never be used… But UIT has changed my opinion on school in only two weeks! I never dreamt it would be possible to wake up in the morning and go to school excited because I would be learning what I wanted! This week we explored putting together a portfolio with HTML, CSS and Bootstrap.

My portfolio can be found at rileyboudreau.github.io

This wasn’t a new experience for me but none the less was enjoyable! Soon we’re going to be diving into making a chat app and that’s the stuff I’m really excited for! I’m slowly getting to know my classmates and like being surrounded by people who love the same things I do. The staff continue to be pleasant and supportive while also giving constructive criticism! I’m not a very big writer so figuring out what to put in these blogs is very difficult for me… Not to mention my sentence structuring has always been atrocious so let me apologize for that now!

So at this point I’m doing nothing more than rambling to make sure this is long enough. But hey, I’ll surely get better at this as time goes on and I have to do more! But for now I’m going to keep reading them and thinking on how I can improve on it for next time! But the point of this blog minus the bloat here at the end is: keep up the work UIT! You’ve made school fun! I can’t believe I just put “school” and “fun” in the same sentence without sarcasm…

I didn’t particularly enjoy high school and can relate a lot to what you’ve said here. Thanks for sharing and for being so positive. On a personal note it makes me feel pretty great about UIT to see that someone who felt similarly to me about high school is finding this to be a more meaningful experience. Thanks.
