It's my birthday!

That's all! :)

Okay, maybe a lil more.

This time last year I was barely able to remember how to write a for loop, recalling from college courses I took long ago. Mid-July of 2019 I decided to make a switch into programming and started teaching myself JavaScript. And now I'm here! Programming! Building! Interviewing (fingers crossed ;P)! Writing about it all!

I'm gonna take today to be kind to myself and cherish how far I've come.

With <3, happy coding!

Happy Birthday. ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿง๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽˆ

You are following your dreams despite having been on a different route before. Such a change in life takes courage. A lot of courage. But it is such courageous steps that lead to the greatest satisfaction in life.

Never settle for less than what you dream of. You will make it. From what I have read, you have all that it takes. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

Enjoy your day, and the adventure ahead of you! ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿง๐Ÿฐ

Congratulations! ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰

Building something on your own with no more than a
computer is a great feeling, isnโ€™t it?

Good luck with the interviews and relax. At your stage, good teams look for passionate people which you seem to be ๐Ÿ‘

On to the important question: do you have any cake left over?
