…and maybe I’ll do it again next year.
This post was translated, edited and removed from my Medium. Want to know why?
The idea of having something planned to do 1 hour a day, every day, in 100 days, looked dull, tiring and inaccessible for me, as a person who lives and get distracted easily by my parents (they often ask me to get out of my study room and then I couldn’t concentrate the same way. I’m still adapting myself to this).
After the 100 days, however, I kept thinking it was kinda inaccessible for me, but it wasn’t dull and tiring anymore. The 100 days passed so quickly I almost couldn’t perceive it, causing me to forget the daily tweeting, which was one of the main rules of the game.
I think I failed the most in doing this without previous planning. I’m used to having each study day planned, and I couldn’t do this specifically on the 100 days, because I was THAT busy. And this caused me to get lost in the challenge. Remembering 2019 is my first year programming… and I actually got lost in “easy” stuff.
But anyway, I didn’t regret any of these first 100 days. I’m literally thinking about doing a “part two” right now, and do it with previous planning and all the things I should have done before. I learned a lot of new (and old) stuff, lived wonderful experiences on programming, but simultaneously I woke up and saw I need to study more, to improve myself in so many ways.
For example, I went to Python Nordeste (a Brazilian event), which opened my eyes to what programming can do and how can I work knowing that.
This challenge pushed me to learn more, and I’m currently learning 3 programming languages: C (for university), Python (personal interest/it was the first programming language I’ve ever known about) and Java (very appreciated recommendation).
When I was starting, I got very inspired by Ana Paula’s 100 days, but on mine, I’ve learned everyone has their ways of learning and developing knowledge in general. The challenge helped me to find mine…
I’ll do a part two in 2020. Wait for it.
