My brother is amazing. Seriously. I’ve known it for years, but I kept it to myself growing up (sibling stuff and all that). He aces all of his classes, composes his own music, and when it comes to coding, he’s basically brilliant.
During our Hawaii vacation, I started adjusting the appearance of my blog. Two columns or three… Large photos or small… Long posts or excerpts… As one of the least computer-savvy people in the entire universe, I quickly started drowning in the HTML and CSS. (Or maybe my own tears.)
When my brother walked in and saw me sniffling at my computer screen, he offered, “Here, let me try.” After a few keystrokes, clicks, and page refreshes, he single-handedly beautified my blog to how it looks now. Isn’t he sweet? (If you’re reading in an email or RSS feed, click HERE to see the new design!)
Because of these computer coding skills, one of the big internet-related companies hired him as a paid summer intern! I’m so proud. And if I didn’t live 110 miles away, I would’ve snuck into his kitchen this morning (his first day!) to make him breakfast: either Mickey Mouse pancakes (our childhood favorite), scrambled eggs (because he’s trying to be healthy), or these french toast cupcakes (since they’re portable and so darn cute!).
But only one of those yields extras that I could eat too, so… Maybe not such a tough choice after all!
