Dear Dev Fellows,
There is something that is bothering me for the last few months. I would describe myself as a very active person, for my age - 18.
I am in my senior year at High-School(Unfortunately the educational system in my country is so poor, so we don't do nothing at school,LITERALLY NOTHING), in addition to this I work part-time and I am trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle trough weight-lifting and dieting.
So, Long story- short, I feel like the whole knowledge gained from there is knowledge without practice. When it comes to practice, I don't have any ideas how to put the whole knowledge into action.
So here is the first question - Could you suggest effective methods of practice while learning?
Second problem I have is that, due to the fact that i have a lot of things happening, just because I've made my choice for active lifestyle, I often get to the point where, I don't have energy (sometimes time) or the possibility to focus in order to code. Great example is school - Because we don't do nothing all day long, everybody are talking and laughting loudly in the classrooms, which is making focusing on a problem something really hard and impossible for me.
*So here is the second question - Could you, cool people, suggest a way of boosting this energy for some real studying and is there a way of focusing in such environment? *
This is the first time, I'm reaching the community, so I really hope if someone could give me a hand with those struggles.
Thanks for your time!
