Great article Milecia!

Sometimes it's hard to settle on an idea for a project. If you have that problem, start by making a replica of a different application with a different tech stack or something. This will get your brain pumping and eventually you'll come up with something you'd rather do. The key isn't coming up with a great idea. The key is to get started on something.

I couldn't agree more. Trying to figure out what to build especially for new developers can in itself lead to frustration and burnout. My answer is always this, build something you already use and enjoy, then let your imagination run wild with it.
