That would be me. There's a lot of reasons why I'm not "there", but if you ever did an interview with me, I explain why. 1. I never went to school for CS 2. I had to practice time management and hone in my ADHD 3. I just like coding and making stuff.

I should have added I had a different career and when I switched for the first 2 years I didn't believe I was good enough to make the cut as a dev and applied for non dev jobs I was overqualified for (Emails, support, blah) and took the first thing that came my way often times. I realized I wasn't going to "grow" into such roles unless I aimed and didn't give up on my own projects. Now I'm doing the type of work I want. Even if I'm mediocre or have "potential", I get to enjoy every challenge and task. And thats pretty good for me!
