Love this! I started my journey in November 2015 on Code Academy and I felt the same feeling stuck and feeling handicapped. Now I’m stuck I don’t know where to go from here. My fiance and I just moved to China in Nov to teach as well. It’s nice to see someone on the same path, it’s hard work! I have the same aspirations of teaching myself, while I pay off student loans and save for coding school in Cali. That’s awesome you reached your goal! Sounds like I need to come to South Korea(as I had originally planned) for the community of aspiring Full Stack developers. Thanks for sharing!
