My first learning week has gone by so fast! At one point I thought my brain was going to explode tags and variables all over my computer. I don't think I would have lasted if I didn't schedule out some time to dedicate to myself.
I like to stay organized and I have to say, scheduling really helped me through this first week. If anyone is curious how I blocked out my day, here it is.
According to this calendar, it says that I should be dedicating 28 hours to learning code and two hours to social media. Then I have my "me time" to get myself pumped then dolled up for the day. I'm sure you've probably noticed that I have "Work" on there as well. But why Lynne? I thought you said you quit your job? I know, I know. I did, or at least I tried. My company asked me to stay on to help train the program's faculty on back-end responsibilities. Wanting the majority of my time dedicated to coding, I agreed to 10 hours a week.
Of course my time is flexible with social media floating between tutorials and coding games before bedtime, but this breakdown gives me a sense of daily accomplishment and helps me find out what I'm spending more time on and what I'm breezing through.
Last week I was also able to attend my first ever Live Stream on Twitch from @chrisoncode. That was a very cool experience to get a live tutorial on Hashnode. I've also started to read more blogs and look at dev portfolios. This really helped me feel great that I am a part of this wonderful community. Everyone is so helpful and encouraging. It's also a great way to find inspiration. Some of you are doing great things!
