My first project after barely learning the basics of Python was reading 
a spreadsheet with 600+ website URLs, taking a screenshot of each 
website, and building a HTML webpage to display the 600+ screenshots. If 
I was to do this manually (i.e., clicking and looking at each website), 
this would take two weeks of my spare time. By automating this task into 
a Python script (which took two weeks of my spare time), the script runs 
for two hours in the background and I take 15 minutes to glance at the 
HTML pages with screenshots. If I find something wrong with a particular 
screenshot, I can click on the website URL to investigate further.
