What’s up beautiful people. It’s Christmas Eve and there’s nothing I would love more than to keep checking in with everyone that has been reading and following along with this…

On this episode of the Python Chronicles.

I built my first program. Mind you, I’m being very generous with the word program, but it’s one nonetheless.

First Program



print(‘What is your name?’)

myName = input()

print(‘It is nice to meet you’ + myName)


print(‘The length of your name is:’)


print(‘How old are you?’)

myAge = input()

print(‘You will be ‘ + str(int(myAge) +5) + ‘ in 5 years…Hooray!’)

When I ran this program, I got the following output



What is your name?


It is nice to meet you Cam

The length of your…

What’s up beautiful people,

It’s day 11. Previously I talked about receiving a LinkedIn Skills Badge for HTML. Since then, I have come to obtain a pretty good understanding of HTML and its function. So, I started to research different languages to pick up and see what they are primarily used for. My research led me to Python and I must say, it’s one of the visibly easier languages I’ve come across. I don’t know much about it yet, and I don’t know what exactly I’m looking to build with it. …

It’s officially Day 7! 🎉

This makes 1 week since I started my 90 Days of Code series. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I’m going to keep this short so I can go to bed 😂

In this lesson, we covered Font styling

To style font for a page, I can use the “font-family” property in the body selector.


If you notice, I chose the Merriweather font for my website’s main style. However, everyone’s computer does not have that font on it. If a browser can’t render your selected font, then it will have to default to something else…

Another fun day of coding down.

Once again it’s almost midnight and I just started writing this update. Woo Hoo!

I’m getting incrementally better day by day. I’m staying consistent with getting about 40 solid minutes of video knocked out at night. Add time to actually code and you’re looking at an hour and a half of study. I would love to do more, but that is all my schedule allows for the time being. I don’t think I updated you on my current site progress in a while so check it out below:

[Update from the next morning]

In full transparency, I decided to publish my raw notes from yesterday and push the detailed update until this morning because I was exhausted again. But trust that I did get an update out, and most importantly, kept my studying streak going.

So yesterday’s study session centered around

- Favicons

- HTML Div blocks

- The Box model of website styling:

  • padding
  • margin
  • borders


Favicons have to be inserted in .ico format. I used favicon.cc for the sake of time to draw my site’s favicon and it downloaded the the correct format.

To insert…

What’s up everybody. It’s day 4 of my coding Bootcamp and I’m honestly tired of writing. Between a full-time job, juggling freelance projects, protecting my mental health, and dodging COVID… I’m honestly exhausted. It’s currently after 11 pm and I’m pressed to get today’s update out before the day is over. I made the commitment to document every day though, so that’s what I’m going to do.

That’s the reality of this process. Change can be very hard, and it’s just so easy to revert back to what is comfortable. We want to take the road of least resistance. However…
