"But the one thing I needed to learn was how to make a dark-mode button, a feature that helped the colors toggle between modes. At first the project seemed doable, but at that time (and still now), JavaScript was daunting."

This keeps happening to me, no matter what I'm trying to learn. It really is a helpful reframing tool to look at the dark-mode button as a mini-project. It's just as important to helping you learn and get familiar with your tools, even if you haven't produced quite the scope of content you originally wanted.


For sure! Breaking larger projects down into smaller parts and viewing them as “mini-projects” really drives the idea that it’s still helping you learn (and helping build up to that final project!).
