2 Months have now passed since graduating from the Makers Academy.
The more that time passes, the more I see this pandemic situation in an optimistic light. I am carrying on with learning the intricacies of React, started working on Algorithms ( as I see this is a keen interview topic), and find myself reading about any and all articles I come across regarding coding/tech in general.
What is most productive however is my review of the course. I find myself completing week challenges from the course syllabus in a few hours, and completing bonus challenges, and additional features....and enjoying it. When I am working through some of the user stories, I have flashbacks of panic, dread, confusion and disbelief - what I was feeling when I first worked on these exercises. Now I am flying through the work, laughing at my previous self, but also realising that there is no shortcut to time.
This was important for me....the course was so intense, non stop and busy that I never had a chance to breathe, take a look around and observe what I had achieved. This quarantine has given me the time to take a look around and appreciate just how far I have come.
Apologies for the self absorbed rant, but i'm proud what I have achieved, and happy to be on this journey.
As always, stay safe during these crazy times, I wish everyone the best of health.
