Thank you so much for writing this. I’m in a similar situation where my summer job at a restaurant has turned into my career for the past 9 years. I’ve been using freecodecamp to help me get started and have been distracted by the many “squirrels”. Thank you for the tips on staying focus, and sharing your happy ending experience!
