I wanted to take a moment and just talk about how I continue to push myself in this crazy development world. Between job searching, keeping up with design trends through front-end looks, or even keeping my head above the code to keep a straight face. There is so much that can happen in a week.
I'm sure as those who are looking for a new role, their first role, or just exploring what's out there, we continue to run into the endless cycle of looking for jobs, applying for that job, reaching out to those who could be involved with that role, meeting others at meetups; it just gets tiring at times. So how do we keep our spirits up, especially when we don't hear any responses?
For myself, it's really just to continue to learn something new or continuing to push myself to keep fresh with the sites, apps or whatever I'm interested in making.
Every Friday, I tell myself to step away from the world of job hunting, and build something new. If it's something big, small, whatever it may be. I have to open VSC and make something.
I find this helps me just get the frustrations and feeling crummy about no responses out of my head and have fun. Because that's what we all got into this world for, was to have fun and create cool stuff!
So really this is for others who may be in my situation, or others who may see this and have more tips and tricks. (if you do, please leave them in the comments below) If you have cool things you want to show off, then let me see them, maybe we can work on something together!
