If not for photoshop I would not have created my first website. All thanks to a great graphics teacher who taught a great class during my Junior year of high school. I am going to paraphrase but I've always remembered him saying that no matter what you have learned here (in high school), Photoshop will be something that you will always use.

To this day it is something that I have never stopped using, I created my first site because of a photo I created (still have it somewhere) of Nixon giving the peace sign as he boards his plane. I replaced all the people around him with characters from the Simpsons. 

So I created this amazing photo and wanted a way to share it. Myspace was on the way out and Facebook was still building up momentum but not used much. So I created a website called BrainFreeze101, I couldn't remember if it was .com or .net.

I remember the struggles of creating that site 🤬 it was so painful. WordPress was only about 4 years old and I was using some Microsoft services that let me sign up for free and I even got a domain for free. In the end, it really was something that was a stepping stone to what I enjoy doing now. 😁

Till tomorrow. ✌️
