What have I done in 2019?

This has been quite the weird year to me.
As every other year, a lot happened. Good things, Bad things...
But 2019 was a specially challenging year to me.

As I sit here to write this, I feel drained.
Physically, mentally, emotionally... Impostor Syndrome is kicking my a$$ so hard I wanna cry.

So I just wanted to write about what I have done this year, and hopefully that will help me to see that hey, I am in the right path.
So Sorry, today I am writing for myself.

-In 2019 I finally went home to Brazil after almost 6 years without seeing my family.
-In 2019 I learned JavaScript and officially started programming.
-In 2019 I started writing weekly posts like this one.
-In 2019 I got a No from an internship I really wanted BUT shortly after I got accepted in another one.
-In 2019 I decided that I will make my life as a Developer.

And that is why I can't give up.
I got keep going, until I make it.
And that is the one goal I can't lost track of.

You've accomplished a lot this year. You should be very proud. Congratulations on the internship =)

Btw, I was thinking of doing a year end post in this similar theme. I think it's always good to remind yourself of everything you've accomplished in a year.

🌚 Browsing with dark mode makes you a better developer by a factor of exactly 40.

It's a scientific fact.
