I love your first mistake. Everybody makes that because they feel they need to do that to get a job. Recruiters man, you gotta love them.

I tell my students all the time... LEARN 1 LANGUAGE WELL and the rest will be easy to pick up because they are all basically the same

5 is definitely a mistake. Some will argue Stackoverflow is the best thing that ever happen to software development. Copying solutions off the internet and not understanding what you are copying does not teach you how to code. Sometimes I wish we could shut off the internet and go back to learning from books.
