The Game Changer!

This post is going to be about new stuff going on. For those of you who have been following my blog from when I first began it, you may think that I stopped working on it until I coded this new website. Actually, I did more than just code a new website.

That is because I also went back and added in extra information both in editor’s notes (such as this) and besides the editor notes, I also added new paragraphs of writing within each of the blogs in order to additionally elaborate. Feel free to go back and reread my previous posts to find what the new additions are.

This blog is developed full-stack by writer in Java Script. It is both fully responsive and dynamic. It was a labor of love which I am very proud of, and I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed creating it. It loads extremely fast on various devices such as smartphones, tablets, as well as computers.

I put in some really cool features which I am not going to mention here because I would rather you discover them on your own. As we move forward, I am also going to be adding some new cool features just because that’s what I like to do for fun when I am not jet setting lol. I would like to give a special thanks to my friend Toni Anne for her testing of this website’s responsiveness on various devices and for providing me with her valuable feedback.

This blog is growing and evolving – much like the living and breathing Constitution of the United States. Quite frankly, so much has happened to me so fast over the past 12 months that I am unable to get it all posted. If so, it would be like the megalithic encyclopedia Britannica lol. For that reason, I have now chosen to return to this blog to fill in any missing pieces later on.

With this, I actually skipped a few states that I drove through which I would very much like to write about and share with you. As the first blog platform/website was written on the road and from my hotel rooms during stops, sometimes I drove through two states at a time and there was just not the opportunity to write about everything. Please accept my apology for that. It's only natural that as I mature and grow as a person that the blog does as well 😅

I got the job!

The purpose of my blog and the subsequent road trip was for documenting my cross-country journey to Amazon. My intention was to view firsthand how America had changed post-pandemic which I had done. Since that time, I completed my internship, I returned home, and graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA. My integrity, hard work, and dedication to the field of software development were acknowledged by my employer.

Fun fact
I was offered a full-time position with Amazon as a Software Development Engineer (SDE1). I have accepted the position and also started graduate school part-time in order to achieve my Master of Science degree in Data Science. Plus, I now have a beautiful condo in downtown Seattle! The neighborhood is called Queen Anne and it is the hub of the theater and entertainment district which makes it very lively!

Quite frankly, a person could not ask for a better place to live anywhere in the world. The only thing that I would compare it to would be the village in Manhattan. There is even more exciting stuff going on, but a girls gotta keep a couple of things to herself xD.

NEW Editor’s Note:
I added the following update on 8/5/2022 just to keep things fresh and moving forward ➡️

Here is a little extra…

Most recently, my former high school teacher, Mr. Courtright, reached out to me to do a podcast with him. Mr. Courtright was not only my computer science teacher, but he was also my FBLA adviser that supported me with my win at the state and national FBLA Competition for my Electronic Career Portfolio in 2020. He invited me to help other young people to become leaders. I am so happy to have had the opportunity to participate in the Highschool Leadership Podcast. High school students do not have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to learning the skills and talents that are imbued in leaders. The podcast can be viewed by clicking on the last picture in this blog post! Enjoy :)

Hi, I'm Madison!

I am a 20 year old second year graduate student currently working towards achieving my Master of Science degree in Data Science. I have a passion for software engineering as well as website/applications development. It is my ability to "think outstide of the box" that enables me to come up with innovative solutions to complex problems! This is an Instagram worthy blog/journal… or something of the sort - you’ll see! 😋
