This was a good read. I’ve noticed my motivation drop a little bit since the “stay at home” order went into effect. I haven’t tweeted as much and have been feeling a little pigeonholed with my current job (which is considered essential work, so I’m not any time off). However, with my new laptop and some tweaks to my work flow, I’m starting to feel more drive and confidence to finish the FreeCodeCamp curriculum, learn lots of great coding tricks, build some cool projects, make meaningful connections and land that first web developer job.
That's great news that you're starting to feel more drive and confidence, Justin! Stay at home first felt like an opportunity to tackle on more studying, but quickly I realized it's the opposite. Maybe if you tweet your progress more (as small as it may seem), you'll feel more motivated with feedback from your followers. That seems to push me a bit.. Good luck with everything, I'm trying to land my first dev job too. It's a tough time, but we'll get through! Stay positive.
Thank you for the encouragement, Sarah. I appreciate it. I like your bit about tweeting my progress because I started doing that again over the last couple of days
