H Bytes #10: Mission Impossible - Calculator

This week has been the turning point I lowkey feared from the beginning, I did slow down quite a bit on the motivation side due to more brain frustration and possible burnout feels. To combat this, I decided a night to just sit, watch a movie, and stitch. Knowing this a day ahead (since planned), I felt less pressure to get back to 'work' learning and certainly will need more of these particular days off in the future. Where these posts are helpful to

What I did last week:

  • an attempt was made to refactor the vanilla JS calculator to React but got to a stopping point
  • rejoined an old Edx course for programming with JavaScript to get yet another explanation view; lo and behold first test was a calculator!
  • peeked The Odin Project which also had a calculator; just gonna have to do it and move on
  • more sun = more walks :)

What about this week?

  • this is the last week I'd want to spin my wheels on the calculator, either do Odin, Edx, or freeCodeCamp or possibly a Youtube vid, and be done with it!
  • enjoying a day off from work and some maybe incorporate Nerd Fitness bodyweight routine into my activity to get some strength work going
