So I'm in a bootcamp...

I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed during the first week of the new coding bootcamp I'm attending. My cohort mirrors my sentiments, it just seems like we're getting bombarded with a sort of esoteric shotgun approach and it's pretty difficult sometimes to not give in to stress and have a breakdown. However, even with all of these feelings I've never been more excited, challenged, or hopeful. I honestly can't wait to learn more.

Bootcamps are meant to be like that, keep fighting on and don't give up! Also, welcome to the DEV community!

Thank you so much, I just really wanted to vent lol. I'm actually having a great time though, I fully recommend it! I can't wait to start contributing to the resources available and helping people figure things out!

It'll get easier once you get used to the work load. I remember being pretty overwhelmed at first but once you get in the rhythm of things it'll be more manageable. Good luck!
