Yes, this journey is difficult but having a supportive environment is a huge plus. Many sacrifices continue to be made such as not been able to go out at times with my girlfriend or me staying late up at night during the weekends she falls. Her support and understanding have helped me focus on learning a new and complex language. Therefore having support is important.
Lastly, I've built multiple projects that reflect my learning on codepen and I'm on my way to start my second course. I want to have a great understanding before diving into React. The goal is to have a remote front-end web dev job by the middle of next year.
