Hi! beautiful developers and readers๐Ÿ˜Š, for those who don't know me I'm mary and I am learning web development, I love to try new things I'm here to solve all your problems during coding by explaining them in my situation.๐Ÿ†

Designing / UI Journey

1. Adobe Illustrator (Jan to March)

I started with illustrator and made a few logos and designs. Designing is my passion and I am so passionate.

  • My vector portraits

  • My Arts

When I Got demotivated:

I designed logos at first but due to some problem with my laptop all my data got crashed and I lost my very first practice.

Days passed and I lost my interest in designing. I stopped working on my artwork and started preparing for my exams. That long break consumed my 2nd quarter of 2022 after my exams during my holidays, I again gathered myself up and started my journey again I started again learned again practiced, and achieved it. I am so thankful to myself that I didn't stop and I continued and acquired all the skills I wanted to.

Motivation from this : It's never too late to begin.

2. Adobe Photoshop (May to July)

Then I started to learn with gfxmentor and I learned adobe photoshop I edited many pictures and then I learned adobe xd, Figma, adobe InDesign, premiere pro, lightroom, and much more.

Python Journey

After Designing I started with the most interesting language Python๐Ÿ in July 2022 from different resources here's a tip you should always learn from different resources than sticking to only one, it will help you develop a better learning taste.

How I dealt with procrastination:

So as I started learning I begin to procrastinate daily what I did was amazingly shocking. I started to publish my journey on Twitter and trust me it helped a lot I meet new people daily and some of them become my new friends. I read Madza sir's articles and tweets and it helps me a lot.๐ŸคYou guys can follow me to learn with me My Twitter๐Ÿ˜Š
