Craft Academy: One Month of Bootcamp
Lots of people have been asking me: “how is bootcamp?” And it’s honestly a somewhat complex question to answer. If bootcamp is going really great, you’re probably not being pushed hard enough. That’s why they call it bootcamp — if you’re legitimately enjoying yourself, you’re doing it wrong.
The biggest enemy right now is time. Every night I look up from my computer at 10-something (even though I promised I would get offline at 9:30), think just a few more minutes, and have to pry myself away from a solution that I would swear is so close. The next day, I work at the same solution for hours.
No, I haven’t really seen my husband in a month.
No, I really haven’t appreciated that it’s “summer” here in Sweden.
No, I have no idea what any of my friend are doing.
My house is a mess. I have eaten more pizza in the last month than the previous seven combined. I am incapable of discussing anything other than code. Laundry is piling up. My neck hurts. I’m fucking tired.
So how is bootcamp? It’s a pretty wild ride, man.
