#100DaysOfCode Day 8 & 9 — Dealing with Frustration

The starting of Week 2 of #100DaysOfCode hasn’t been amazing for me. But before that, let’s have a recap of things I did in Week 1: #100DaysOfCode — Day 7 and Week 1 Progress Summary.


And now, here I am, on Day 9 of #100DaysOfCode. Let’s be honest here, after all this challenge is all about Being Honest to yourself. The first two days of this week has been bizarre.

Yesterday, on Day 8, I read one chapter on Strings from Swift Programming — The Big Nerd Ranch Guide, and did the code challenges. Although the learning session was intense, and I did ended up learning lots of new things about how Strings work in Swift and how different things are in Swift as compared to other programming languages, I didn’t felt satisfied with my progress yesterday. Since these days, there are some other things which I need to figure out for get admitted into a decent Grad School, I really hate it when those things clashes with my daily routine. All I want is “Minimalism” in my work life.

Today, hoping that the day would be better, I woke up with a mild fever. I couldn’t focus on a single thing the entire day. If I wouldn’t be taking the #100DaysOfCode challenge, I would have probably spent the day in bed. But, suddenly, I reminded myself a quote by Martin Luther King Jr. :

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

So, I got up and read one chapter about Collections from Swift Programming — The Big Nerd Ranch Guide, did some digging into Swift Documentation and completed Code Challenges.

But still, I’m frustrated about my slow progress in Week 2. But tomorrow, I’ll do better!

So, that’s it for now. Hopefully, tomorrow would be better. You can find my #100DaysOfCode repo here. If you like this repo and find it useful, please consider ★ starring it (on top right of the page). 😊

If you’re also taking the #100DaysOfCode challenge, let me know. We can hangout sometime, and talk about each other’s progress on Twitter. You can follow me on Twitter and Github.

Adios!
