First off, I’d like to apologize to all my faithful readers. It is now Tuesday evening and I still haven’t updated you guys on how Week 3 went. That’s because this past weekend I actually had a social life! Yup, went for the full trifecta and went out on Friday, Saturday, AND Sunday. Yes, yes shame on me. All those good hours I could’ve spent coding wasted on family and friends. In my defense I coded before going out each night and my homework wasn’t due until Wednesday. So I don’t feel terribly guilty about not dedicating my entire weekend to coding.
The lesson there is to always be looking at the big picture. What exactly is it that you’re trying to do? What are the things that you’re currently working with? Is this enough to do what you’re trying to accomplish? If not, what else do you need? I’m still really enjoying this learning process. The more I learn and understand the better I get. And getting better is fun. I’ve never been in an educational setting that was so instantaneously gratifying. I can only hope the remainder of the boot camp goes the same.
