    1. Q: What first got you involved in web designing?
    A: I was interested in making my own website instead of using a premade template.
    2. Q: How many hours do you devote per day to your art?
    A: Depends. Depending on how much homework, etc. I have, I spend anywhere from 15 minutes to 5 hours a day on it.
    3. Q: Any perks of the job? Benefits?
    A: You don't have to get up from your computer.
    4. Q: Beginning salary?
    A: N/A
    5. Q: High end salary?
    A: N/A
    6. Q: What is your favorite aspect of the job?
    A. I enjoy learning more coding and working on stuff. I like that I can choose to do things my way, and as long as it works OK, it's accepted.
    7. Q: What HS courses would you recommend for web design?
    A: I'm in High School right now, and don't take any that have to do with it.
    8. Q: How much experience do you need?
    A: Depends on how fast you learn and how determined you are. However, don't expect to be able to make $5000 websites within a month.
    9. Q: How many years of college, if applicable?
    A: not there yet. However, I don't plan to go to college so I guess N/A for this one too...
    10. Q: How hard is it to get a site just right?
    A: Depends on how picky you are.
    11. Q: What level of job security does web design have to offer now?
    A. To me, not much; however, it doesn't matter, given that I'm still in High School and I have a Saturdays job at a store.
    12. Q: What is the projected job security trend?
    A: N/A
    13. Q: Any special talents required? What do you have to have a knack for? (besides the obvious)
    A: It helps to know a bit how computers work because it will help you choose good computer(s) to use while saving you money if you know how to fix stuff yourself... no need to wait for the local computer repair shop to fix it (time is money, after all) if you can do it yourself faster, easier, and cheaper. Also, web design is a great side job for somebody who repairs and sells computers for work and as a hobby in general.
    14. Q: Where does pressure stem from in the job?
    A: It's very easy to get distracted! You're also goign to have to be self-motivated.
    15. Q: Any tips for a middle school student looking into the field?
    A: Be patient with yourself, but don't give up. It's a good field, but makes sure you bring something unique to the table so clients will choose you!
