Crewmate’s Log Day 1 : It’s Real

Weekend’s over, it’s Halloween Monday. Didn’t really do anything this weekend. Why you ask? Well, i was making sure that I’m done with Monday’s labs by Sunday…on a weekend such as this, anything else can wait. Besides, you can’t really enjoy yourself when that voice at the back of your mind keeps jabbing at you reminding you every second consistently, like clockwork, that time is idly passing by and you still haven’t started a single lab. Huh? What’s that? That voice doesn’t bother you? That’s just me and maybe i should consider getting checked out? Pssh... nah, i think I’m fine…

Bootcamp status as per current: the ship, she sails. We have encountered some rough waves(Car class) on the course but nothing the SS #JeeSquad can’t handle under the leadership of Captain Jee. She hasn’t been through much but we are expecting a bit of turbulence to come. After all, it’s still only Day 01 on Week 01, many leagues yet lie ahead on this adventure that would serve to be the most rewarding one yet. The rest of the crew are looking quite strong. With each other, i think we can accomplish a lot as long no man/woman( Natalie represented) is left behind and who knows? Maybe the entire #JeeSquad crew can make it to Week 02, if that’s even possible.

I haven’t much to document today. Not much has happened but I can say i’m already learning some things. I knew nothing of TDD before we embarked but now, i can almost write the libraries for nose.(Don’t call me out on that one) But all the same, it’s a wonderful experience to be here among people who have all the passion to become world class devs. Cool people who are not led by the corporate norms and beliefs that ‘One can only be serious and dedicated to something when in a suit and tie.’

The place is a home away from home and I don’t think i have seen a more comfortable working environment. Well, except sitting in the house with a cup of tea on the couch in sweats. But then again, I don’t get to interact with amazing people (other than myself…haha) at home. So all round I think i can comfortably say I’m hooked. So all that remains, as Jacksaya would put it is “…for Andela to like me back.” Let’s see what lies ahead…
