Officially Acquia Certified!

Thanks to iFactory for putting me through Acquia certification! I definitely would not have passed without having learned so much from working there in the past 5 months.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Section 1 – Fundamental Web Development Concepts: 62%
  • Section 2 – Site Building: 93%
  • Section 3 – Front end development (Theming) : 50%
  • Section 4 – Back end development (Coding) : 77%

Interesting outcome since I feel that I’ve been really comfortable with my frontend development. Ah well. Feels good to finally be done with the exam!

Streetlight Manifesto Concert

Just watched Streetlight Manifesto last week at the House of Blues! Although I’m fairly new to the ska genre, I knew I had to see these guys. I don’t know all their songs by heart, but I’ve listened to them several times on Spotify, and I love their sound.

And what a great first concert of many in Boston. Their 5 piece horn section was so beautiful. I almost cried whenever they’d play their extravagant and virtuosic horn lines. As a matter of fact, I did cry several tears of joy during their opening number. The horns’ massive sound hit me in the face like a ton of bricks, and I couldn’t help but feel like I was engulfed in such heavenly sound. Their fanbase have so much energy, too, and I was feeling it the whole time. Definitely going to catch these guys again!

All Settled In Boston!

Woo! Coming from living on an Island for the last 15 years (and 10 years more prior to that), moving back to the city is quite a breath of fresh air (or stinky air, considering I live in Allston)! I moved here to start working on my masters degree in music education at Boston University. Being a few weeks in, I already have so many stories to tell, but so little time to tell them.

While I don’t have too much time to blog, I’m just going to keep my blog posts on the shorter side, just so I have things to look back on. No one really reads my blog anyway, so enjoy, future me!

And just to close, I am super loving it here so far. Until next time!
