Personal and Professional Developments

In case you care:

Personal life…

  • I’m losing weight (on purpose).
  • It’s been almost a year since my last cigarette (quitting takes practice, but this is the last time: about that I am gravely serious)
  • I don’t want zmwilliams.com to die so I’m trying to try to work on it 🙂

Professional life…

  • I’ve got four topics on the burner right now in the form of two Udemy courses and Packt Pub books:
    • Materialize CSS
    • JavaScript from the Beginning (AGAIN)
    • WordPress theme development
    • WordPress plug-in development
  • Coming up on three years at Christ Episcopal Church… an interesting milestone for me for several reasons.
  • I completed the website for a non-profit: Environmental Education and Conservation Global, eecg.org,   a few weeks back which mainly involved a customization of the Twenty-Seventeen theme. I wasn’t comfortable with all the decisions I made along the way which has me looking closer at contemporary WordPress theme development as well as topics larger in scope as detailed above.
  • A client streams music and I have to do research in reporting to SoundExchange. All this work sounded more glamorous and high-minded before I got into it but I don’t know what else I’d do.

Considering the median age in Potter County, Pennsylvania, 46, a lot of people I remember from secondary school are going into medicine. This isn’t an in issue unique to the area, but I can only do what I really want to do: I do not want to work in medicine. I care about the community and about people at large but I suppose I’d rather write about them then weigh them or deal with their — ugh — fluids.

But about those things I want to do, there are plenty of them so I’m back to it. <a href=”/email-me/”>Drop me a line, won’t you?</a> If I know you, I miss you. If I don’t, I want to!
