Web design and wedding flowers in Sydney

26 Mar

Anyong! So what else have I been doing lately? Well since early last year I got so motivated to learn something new and ended up learning HTML, CSS and a lil bit of java. I studied using the site Codecademy because they make it sooo easy to learn! Nowadays there are so many places to take courses online to learn about new things. edX and Coursera are one of websites that provide online courses, or you could just go to MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) which aggregates different providers of online courses. I mean these websites provide material from the most prestigious universities like Harvard, MIT, Yale, Stanford, etc.. you name it, and for some you can get a certificate too if you complete it. But you do have to have some sort of discipline because course duration can range from e.g. 8 weeks to 16 weeks and you do have assignments and tests to complete. Okay so back to why I was talking about coding. With the knowledge that I gained online last year, I managed to buy a domain and host a website on my own. I created and designed http://sunpetalsflorist.com.au.

In addition to that, I have learnt how to do wedding flowers and have been helping the founder of Sunpetals Florist, Christine Lee, in Sydney with wedding flowers.

I became friends with the bride and attended her wedding! I managed to catch the throw bouquet that I made! How lucky is that?
