I finally admit the fact that it’s OK to fail.
I just took my midterm test, that had been delayed 3 weeks.
(it’s almost final period LOL) I tried my best, but still, I might pass the course, maybe not. I will admit whatever the result would be even though it might be still hurtful.

tl;dr. My win of this week is, I’ve gotten ready to be defeated.

Failure is a natural part of progress. Whenever I fail a quiz, test, and the eventual interview, I bake myself some cupcakes. The only condition is that you can't give up.

I’ve already failed tons of interviews, not only from dev jobs, but also places like Starbucks. Failing coursed was harder, maybe since it is purely from my own effort without additional excuse.
Thanks for kind words, and good luck with your challenges, fellow student/career-changer.

Anytime. I miss Tim Horton's. Sometimes I order a big tub of their coffee whenever I am feeling nostalgic. Take care.
