Gratefulness Challenge Day 26

My Gratefulness Challenge is soon coming to an end. It has been a big commitment this month to find time daily to write these posts, but I am really glad to be doing it.

1. Being able to problem solve: A few days ago I was trying to get some footage of mine off of a DVD, today I was trying to use basic HTML code without any knowledge about the system at all. I was able to solve both problems all on my own and it felt great! Ok sure google helped a bit, but I still had to do the reading and figure out how to make it work.
