Hi Ami! I’m so excited your created this course. My sister shared the link with me and I was freaking out because I didn’t realize anything like tech-witchcraft existed.
To answer your questions:
My hobbies include: I volunteer a lot for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, hang out with my pets (1 cat and 1 dog), play on the computer a lot, and I play the harp!
A normal day for me consists of sitting in my home office on the computer because I work remotely. After work I practice the harp, have a glass of wine, and I’ve been getting really into bubble baths so I’d say that’s my new healing “ritual”.
I had taught myself basic HTML when I was in middle school. I had my own website and would also do some coding on MySpace. As I grew older I didn’t feel like I had the time or resources to keep up with it, but now that I work as a Technical Recruiter in the Tech space, I work a lot with programmers and I like the idea of having a better understanding of the different techs and languages they talk about it. It’s also really interesting to me to learn about the possibility of being able to incorporate technology into my own personal practice/craft.
Hi Rebecca! I’m glad to meet you! Happy you’re excited about the course! That’s amazing you play the harp. I think you’d like this music site by an indie maker. https://muted.io/ Happy to be a part of your tech journey.
Hello! I’m Denise. My hobbies include knitting, crocheting, needle work, tarot, and other witchy stuff.
I’m a librarian. My normal day is a work day. I wear different hats at the library. I’m a reference librarian which means I help people find books, movies, and information as well as help them with technology. I do our social media so I create graphics and post them. I create graphics for our website, as well. The heavy lifting for our site is done by an amazing company that only works with libraries and I manage the day to day stuff. Our site is new and I can use Bootstrap with it which I’ve never played with.
My free time is usually spent in ADHD paralysis. I’m working on that! I’d prefer to read or craft but that doesn’t always happen.
Howdy mate This course seems like it’ll be so much fun already! My mother dearest shared the link to this with me because she knows I’ve always been interested in code and Tarot/Wicca.
The answers to your questions are:
1. My hobbies are: spending time with my precious babies, Forest, Squishy, and Hope (my cats); Learning about what goes into making the perfect cup of coffee, Reading tarot (or getting mother dearest to read it for me) and drawing, usually digitally
2. A normal day: wake up It’s coffee time; gush over my kitties It’s coffee time, then I’ll work for the rest of the day until I realize it’s coffee time. Once it’s later in the night, I usually play some games or just wind down and watch either horror movies or anime.
3. My interests: It might’ve been a little hard to tell, but I love coffee; It is the yin to my yang. But when I’m not learning the ways of coffee, I usually spend time learning about crime and the physiologic side of what happens, or i learn about art techniques
4. Why code: Well, I’ve always been interested in technology. I remember when I was like 4-6, I had my dad teach me physics so I could make a robot when I grew older (which has yet to happen). But as I aged, I realized I much preferred the less physical side of tech, so I read a few code for dummies books (sadly, I couldn’t really understand them) and then took a long, long break to learn more towards my art studies. But now, here I am trying once again to learn about code because it’s just such a magical resource. I mean, you could make games about coffee with it! What more could I need? (Just a little side note but these courses have already been so much easier for me to digest than those code for dummies books)
Anywho i think that’s enough rambling I’ll see you all again once I’ve dove further into these classes
Hi Leigh! Happy to see you here! I love coffee too. And I was also really into physics as a (nerdy) child 😆 Excited to see what you come up with for a coffee game someday!
This course is already the most adorable learning experience I’ve had! Okay, my answers are similar to other people here. My hobbies include the fiber arts (knitting, amigurumi, embroidery) watercolor, drawing anime, and learning new things.
A snapshot of my everyday involves waking up, getting my son ready for school, getting my daughter ready to go to her Abi’s (abuela) which is downstairs in the mother-in-law suite, lol, and working remotely as an instructional designer the rest of the day. I build blended, fully online training courses. My current focus is building an onboarding experience for the institution I work at. I like taking different courses, right now I’m doing professional development in Learning experience design as well as studying Nahuatl, an indigenous language from Mexico.
My interests are all over the place and I wouldn’t say I really have free time lol. I just squeeze whatever I can into the spaces between responsibilities. I do love all things divination so cartomancy, tasseomancy, astrology, casting etc.
I have sporadically learned coding. I learned a little bit of flash when I first started building courses with Adobe products (that changed of course) and I have some basic knowledge of HTML which is often used in Learning Management Systems. I’m glad you mention the idea of the garden with a website. I currently have a WordPress site that is kinda just sitting there lifeless. I enjoyed building it but it feels uninspired at the moment. I would love to revitalize it with a focus on Mesoamerican spirituality, divination and astrology.
Anyway, thank you for this class!
Hi Babette, glad to have you here! It’s gonna be very cool to see what you create for Mesoamerican spirituality. I’m Guatemalan in origin so I’m super interested. That’s awesome you have experience with coding now!!
Hello there Ami and class!
I’m Beth and I’m a big nerd doing life with my partner, kiddos, and pets (cat and dog). I’m really into tv/movies (sci-fi, horror, adventure), being outside, playing my switch (farming games are my jam), and making things. I’ve been a stay-at-home-parent for years and always picked up part time or odd jobs. I want to learn to code so that I can be in control of where/when I work.
That’s great!! You’re in the right place.
Hi everyone!! I’m a bit late to the game after a very crazy November 😅 I actually forgot this started on 11.11, because this course was a gift to me, which makes it actually mean even more to me!
My name is Ellie Monroe, and I’m online mostly as BelleWitchh. I’m a professional spiritualist and witch, I read mostly oracle and occasionally tarot, as well as offer spell services, channelings, cleansings, and other magical services. My background is a combination of southern folk magic and Hellenic deity worship, primarily Lady Persephone.
My hobbies are mostly my work, honestly–finding more ways to serve my community, expand my knowledge of spirituality and it’s applications, and connecting with other creators and witches within the sphere I call home. Non-work related hobbies, though, would consist of reading, occasionally writing, watching films, and generally creating (be it through art, crafts, baking, etc.), and, of course, hanging out with my cat, Jiji, and partner, J.
I am disabled, so being able to move further towards supporting myself through my own business as BelleWitchh is something that is very important to me, and something that I can already tell Tech Witch School is going to support me on my journey. I have a bit of knowledge of technology, but mostly through click & drag web building (which is how I built my website http://www.bellewitchh.com), and I would like to expand my knowledge to make my digital platforms for my work more unique and catered to myself, both for my own benefit, and to better support my clientele and community.
My name is Michele but I mostly go by Shel.
It’s been absolutely insane, so I got started on the course a bit later than I intended to. I just up and left a good paying job because it had become a toxic work environment where my coworkers and I were being gaslit into believing our complaints of bullying from supervisors was merely hearsay. I finally decided enough was enough. So I am in a liminal space between terrified and excited right now.
My hobbies include drawing and painting traditionally and digitally, hanging out with my hubby and our two cats, gaming (a lot) and cooking.
Since leaving my job just a couple of days ago, my days are not really normal. I am trying to hunt for a remote job to allow me to really pursue my love of art and gaming. My dream is to learn coding and game development so I may start my own indie game dev company.
Besides art and gaming, I love watching anime and old school horror movies. My other interests include learning new crafts, photography, and collecting tarot decks.
I’m hoping to really turn my life around and build a happy life doing things I love vs grinding away at some job just to make a paycheck.
Hi Shel! Thanks for being here. I’m sorry to hear about the job troubles. I hope the course helps you build your new life. I would love to help your mission how I can so let me know if there’s any way I can help!
Hello! My name is Rachel. I am a non-traditional-aged student at my local community college where I’m studying Environmental Science and Math. This semester, I’m taking a course in Python and a course in Discrete Math, a branch of math that relates to computer science. Growing up, I thought that computers and computer science were something that only “smart boys” could succeed in, so I never really tried to learn anything beyond basic skills in Word, Access, and Excel. In recent years, I started reading about all of the women who’ve been involved in computer science from its beginning in the early 19th century right through to the present day. Computer science, and coding in particular, now seems like a good field of study for a smart, creative woman who likes solving puzzles and enjoys math! I’m excited for Tech Witch School and looking forward to learning new skills and becoming more confident as a coder and a student.
As well as going to school, I work part-time at a local public library, in the Children’s Department. In my free time, I like to draw, crochet, cross stitch, read, work in my yard, play with my three cats, put together jigsaw puzzles, and solve word and number puzzles. I typically draw by hand and would love to learn more about drawing with some of the new digital tools I’ve been reading about, like Procreate and Krita.
Hi Rachel, thanks so much for joining! Great to meet other people in STEM, and I think you’re totally right about it being perfect for creative women. Learning HTML/CSS/JS alongside Python will empower you greatly. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
