Code in Action
Where I Struggled
Honestly, the hardest part of this week was my schedule. I got up at 6 AM to go to the gym, then go work a full day, grab some quick dinner, and be in class from 6 PM – 9 PM. Maybe I’m just getting older, but by Wednesday that schedule had really caught up to me and I was ready to get into the full time 9 AM – 6 PM course.
I also struggled a bit with meeting new people. I’m pretty outgoing by nature, but often need an intermediary to make connections for me before I’m comfortable diving into a conversation with a stranger. Luckily my friend Megan is also taking the course, but I did have to step outside my comfort zone a few times to engage in conversation with the other students I didn’t know.
Where I Succeeded
I think my biggest success for the week was the MadLibs project. I completed the project and pushed to GitHub before the end of class, we reviewed my app as a group, and I just so happened to get a round of applause from the class. I gotta say, that felt really great. I’ve worked very hard to get to where I am now, and I plan on working even harder throughout this course. Keep the applause comin’, folks 🙂
All in all I thought this week went well! I’m excited to get started full-time at the end of the month, even if it means lugging my heavy books back and forth to class on my bike in the rain. That’s the life, I guess!
Thanks for stopping by, and until next week, here codes nothing!
