I am finally doing something that was one of my goals for early quarantine–Learn more code. I got this online class forever ago, like May probably. Looking forward to a very empty summer, I planned to do this all summer. It is a full front and back end coding class. I don’t really have a desire to learn back end, but I definitely want to learn all of front end. I got the class aaannnddd nothing. I should have known myself a little better at that point. I don’t like online schooling, I don’t find any motivation or accountability I need to keep going doing optional online material. So, I didn’t really do any of it.
Then facing a few weeks at home, between semesters, with nothing to do. I was begging God to give me something to fill my time, and I was reminded of the class. Then I was also reminded of a friend from home would was interesting in learning html/css. So I texted her, seeing if she wanted to come over a couple times a week to do the class with me. Hallelujah, this is just what I needed! Someone showing up and us both doing the class. It is about a week in and it has been really nice.
Overall, I am really glad this is working out the way it is. I hope to go into UI which is a broad title that can mean a lot of coding or very little coding, and I would rather be on the over prepared side.
