Beginning the Project
Starting off, last week was rough. Last week we started working on our final project for our Phase 1 endpoint and when I tell you I was stressed, it's an understatement.Between working through 40 hours during the week and coding when I got off, I truly thought to myself "I'm never going to be able to get this done" .

What I wanted to accomplish
When it came time to turn in our project proposals we were given multiple different APIs to choose from and the possibilities were endless. Upon going through and checking what each one was my eyes landed on a specific one that made me so very excited. The API I had chosen had all the information everyone could ever want on Studio Ghibli Films and productions starting from the mid 80's to present.Now, I'm not speaking for everyone, but let me tell you I absolutely adore Hayao Miyazaki's animated worlds. That's why I chose the API I chose. I wanted to be excited to code and create something amazing with it. Now my original plan was to create a page that when you searched for a specific creature,location, film,etc., it would pull up descriptions for everything.

What the App actually does
So what the app I created does differs drastically from what I originally wanted to do. My app essentially searches through Studio Ghibli Films and returns the English title as well as the kanji and romanized Japanese titles. It also displays the release year and give you a short description of what the films plot is.
