It’s almost the end. yikes.
Currently on week 11 of 12 in GA’s web development program and to be honest, I’m scared pretty shitless of what’s to come afterwards. These next two weeks are going to be overwhelming and stressful with a project due as well as trying to get my online/resume/portfolio presence ready to find that career of mine! I’m confident I can get through it, but I know there’s going to be a lot of roadblocks ahead of me. My friend texted me the other day, “You’re never given anything you cannot handle!” and I will definitely use that as my mantra until the end of this program — actually maybe until I land a position. Ha!
And yes, guilty, I haven’t blogged since 9 or 10 weeks ago, but I just wanted to document my emotional roller coaster, a ride that I definitely would want to skip but I know it’s shaping me to be a better person, a better web developer. I have mad respect for people that can do this thing called coding. I know this stuff takes time, and I want to be at a spot where I’m comfortable with various languages. But truth is, I can’t expect to learn everything and have it on lock within the 12 weeks. It’s a constant learning experience since this field is everchanging, and I need to accept the fact that I’m not going to know it all. I guess that’s what makes me scared — that I don’t know it all and am unconfident in my skill level to find a job after all of this.
But I guess it’s not the end yet. I have seven more days to officially finish this program, and until then, I will worry about one thing at a time…this thing being my final project. Let’s see how it goes!
