I'm pretty bad at asking questions. I'm definitely more comfortable digging through the mire of docs and source code than reaching out for help.

I used to be reaaaaallly bad this way. I’ve become more comfortable asking questions over time.

I do this. I worry about whether not knowing an acronym will make me look stupid.

I think "I could ask but I need to do this by myself" and then I waste hours searching. I don't want to bother others when they are busy

I still feel like my dev lingo knowledge is 2 years behind my actual knowledge and every time I am talking to someone I will never stop and ask what a word or abbreviation means. Instead I make a mental note, then after the conversation sit on google for 5 min figuring out what they just said and having ah-ha moments 😂
