Web Design 2 covered several useful subjects that I can use in the future. Although I am not going to pursue a career in technology, I can still use these concepts in life. Out of all the things we’ve covered, though, my favorite was Photoshop. In Photoshop, I learned to “tweak” photos to make them look better or more attractive. I liked being able to add special effects and repair imperfections on the photos. But my least favorite thing would have to be, again, the blogs. I just greatly dislike having to take class time that is already limited to write a blog when I have several other more important things that I need to be doing.

   If I didn’t have the internet or my cell phone, I’m pretty sure I would die. It would be like living under a rock, because I would not have a clue what was going on in the world around me without these modern technologies. I don’t read the newspaper, and I don’t watch the news. Therefore, the only news I hear of is either sent to me via text message, or I see it on the news articles section of my e-mail homepage. Needless to say, my cell phone and my computer are like my lifelines, and without them I would be completely lost.

     The most memorable gift I gave would probably be the gifts I gave my now ex-boyfriend on Christmas, 2008. This boy was an only child and got almost anything he wanted ALL THE TIME. Plus, he always gave me expensive gifts, so I felt obliged to spend a lot of money on him because I felt he would be upset if I didn’t. So, due to this fact, I spent a whopping total of $300 on him, which included several articles of clothing from Hollister and American Eagle, expensive cologne, and other items that I cannot nor do I want to remember. This was more money than I had ever spent on anyone else before in my life, so of course it was a big deal to me. He definitely did not appreciate my gifts as much as I thought he would, and I have to admit I was hurt. The unappreciative jerk then proceeded to dump me a couple of months later. I saw him not too long ago sporting the Hollister jacket that I gave him. I was REALLY tempted to run up to him snatch it off his back. The moral of the story is this: never waste your time saving up money to spend on a spoiled brat.

           The best lesson a relative ever taught me was taught to me by my step-aunt, Brittany Brown. Before I met Brittany, I was a totally different person. I did what I wanted whenever I wanted to do it and didn’t care what anyone thought or what the long-term consequences might be. Brittany was a great role model to me, though, and showed me how to live right and how to live for the Lord. She showed me that you can still serve God and have fun in life, because all desire to do not-so-good things goes away once you truly dedicate yourself to God. This lesson is the best lesson I have learned because it made me a better person and I built a strong relationship with my Lord Jesus. I am so thankful for such a good role model and the most precious life lesson I could learn.

IF I HAD AN EXTRA $100,000…

     If I had an extra $100,000 and could not spend it on myself, I would give half of it to my church for our youth fund and I would give the other half to a children’s hospital, like St. Jude’s. Although none of the children in my family have had cancer, those kids have a special place in my heart because a childhood friend of mine died of cancer when we were nine years old. I believe that if anybody has the funds and the ability to make a difference in a child’s life, they should. And that’s exactly what I would do.

                      Some people may talk about deaths of people that they were close to for this blog assignment. Others may talk about friends moving away, experiencing a move themselves, or maybe even losing an object important to them. But something that occurred not too long ago that caused a great change in me was my salvation in Jesus Christ. The Lord took me and made me into a completely different person, and soon after I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, which changed me even more. I’m so thankful for that change, because I became an example to others of how much our Lord can change a person for the better. I went from being a lowly sinner who could care less about others and did whatever I pleased to being a compassionate person who tries to serve God and represent Him in the best way that I know how. Although life is still a little rough sometimes, God takes care of me and comforts me in a way that no one else can. I have faith in Him to keep me in His hands, come what may. This is by far the greatest change in my life, and is also the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.

            In my room, there are many things that describe who I am. I have a small bed, a chaise lounge that I love to curl up on with a good book , a large entertainment center containing a stereo set controlled by a remote control, a television, and a surround sound DVD player. My furniture is all very bright and colorful, with pretty colors such as pink, purple, and green adorning the walls and covering the floor. My favorite part of my room is the location of it in my home. One of our neighbors comes home late EVERY night, and luckily for me, I am not aroused by the bright headlights of their car every night like my brothers and my parents.

       If I could go back in time and give one piece of advice to someone, it would be my dad. My dad died of a massive heart attack when I was ten years old, and had unknowingly had heart problems for most of his life, because heart problems are common in my family. He didn’t know that the pain he regularly experienced in his left shoulder was his heart; he thought the pain was linked to a football accident years ago that caused his shoulder to be dislocated. To help him, I would tell him that he needed to adopt a healthier diet, and that he should go to a cardiologist to make sure that his shoulder pain was from his injury, instead of his heart. If my dad had known what was really wrong, it’s possible that he could still be here today.

   During this semester of Web Page Design, I have learned many things. I have learned how to set up different parts of a web page, how to write blogs, and I have also learned the basics of HTML. Of all the concepts we’ve covered, though, I would have to say that my most favorite was learning how to make a web page on our own. I enjoyed learning how to set different background colors, how to add pictures, and how to make the website have several different pages with links leading to each one. But, even though I have enjoyed this class, I absolutely do not like having to write blogs. Most times, we do not have time to complete all of the projects we’ve been assigned and complete our blogs in time to be graded. Overall, I have enjoyed myself in this class and look forward to Web Design II.

   If you enjoy working with computers and the Internet, then this could be the job for you! A web page designer makes websites and turns words and art into Internet sites that people can use. They also test websites and try to make the sites work or load faster. Education needed for this job is a 2 or 4 year college degree, depending on how complicated or high paying the job is. A person would need in-depth knowledge about computers, the Internet, an communications. The outlook for this job is expected to grow much faster than the average of  all other occupations between 2006 and 2016. In 2006, the lowest-paid 10% of web page design job holders made less than $38,410, but the highest-paid 10% made more than $101,740.
