The Codepen Times
Woman spends too much time on Codepens despite advice; no plans to stop
Sometimes, Internet users land themselves in an uncommon situation where an app or website can be used for both work and personal situations. Well, a young front-end designer was spending up to 13 hours on the site, Codepen for work and her hobby, which unfortunately, is also coding.
The designer, whose work includes a To-Do Terrarium, clarified, "Well, I didn't have to use it for work but it was already part of my workflow. It just made sense as it was more efficient." The biggest issue, she said, is that she would hop on Codepen for work, but would get distracted by pens made by others in the community for unexpectedly long periods of time, which then causes her to spend even more time on the site.
"I mean, that's terrible right?" she asked. Codepen, which brands itself as the best place to build, test, and discover front-end code, has declined to comment at this time.
Can you get inspired to make your own floor plans?
Making a floor Plan with CSS Grid? Talk about using the wrong tool for the job. But I guess this is what happens when someone isn't happy with any of the floor plans found on Pinterest; she'll start making her own for the eventual home that she will never own. Nevertheless, there's a home office with a large window to look out of pensively during rainy days and a ton of "white space" for the cats to run around.

Get your fill of more CSS Grid items in this collection. There are a total of 32 pens to date... well, 33, if you count this one too. What can you expect in this collection? The hidden gems, in my totally unbiased opinion, are the recreation of the Pac-Man layout and coupons inspired by junk mail. A lot of joke items of things that shouldn't be done in CSS Grid, such as a shelf? Bathroom tiles wtf? and makeup palettes . If you are a cultured person, you will have a chance to enjoy a couple of pens inspired by Harry Potter and Pokemon. On the rare occasion that you are looking at this profile for something you can use in production, you really shouldn't. But, there are some real-world applications, such as the recipe layout, the product catalog, and color palettes for a style guide.
