First Baby Step towards a Bigger Dream

The idea of wanting to become a web developer has been hovering in and out of my mind for a while now. The problem is that I have never truly taken any consistent action towards this nudging desire.

But today is different! Today is the day where that small little voice has grown loud enough that I am compelled to take one step forward. This small step of posting would make no difference UNLESS I let it serve as a continuous reminder to take consistent steps towards my dream.

That being said, taking actions mindlessly is unlikely to bring meaningful progress. Hence, my first milestone would be to develop and launch my first web application within the 70 free days I have during this summer vacation.


Shoutout to Rachel Soderberg and her post for inspiring me to start posting!

I'm a Computer Science Undergrad, expected to graduate Dec 2020. I'm learning about JavaScript,Vue.js and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) in hopes of positioning myself for a Frontend/UX role.

Good luck to you!

Take small steps, and launch as early as you can. I can assure you that building early momentum will increase the chance of you succeeding. Go go go!
