Thanks for the good tip Mimi, appreciate it. I started today watching YouTube on how putting together a WordPress site from scratch. Seems to me as well that the design part just needs to be taken care of, and I could handle everything else. I can tell it’s not really boring to me, I suppose I just have that anxiety of trying something new and gotta get a grip on my negative attitude, I know I can do this, time to jump start my engine!

I really appreciate your input Terry. That’s really cool of you. I guess I forget the number one thing, to simply enjoy myself through the process and stop worrying about failing all the time. I can always take it slow I guess so it doesn’t feel overwhelming, and programming language not being all that hard? You got me interested 🙂

Terry thanks for bringing this up.
I am completely lost right now, about to be 25 in a few months, never finished college, and am looking hard to find something I can enjoy doing and even make a living with. As Ruminant said, working for someone was never appealing, and being a freelancer is, and I have always loved computers and new technology and was curious to work on web design/programming. I personally DO believe that you don’t need an education for that, you just need the skill. But I have such a tough time trying to start it because I am afraid of investing time and failing at it. Reading of course that you felt crushed when a project failed scares me, as that is my fear, but at the same time, at least you went through with it and attempted!
I guess what I’m getting at, is if I should follow through and even if I crash and burn and take somewhat long to even get the hang of it well, should I pursue it? Take a class somewhere, or since I have a lot of free time just being at home right now, even self-study works?
