A year ago today, I learned my first line of code

Just a silly anniversary to celebrate! September 3rd is when I signed up to freeCodeCamp at the suggestion of a friend, and I learned my first line of code. (Spoiler: Hello world)

Still not working in tech and a blue collar worker, but it's wild looking at all the things I've learned over the past year.

For other "newbies" who get discouraged, don't give up! 🙏

I started with plain HTML5. 🤣 But now I'm studying React!
