My goals are still the same, the only difference is that I changed the material that I was using to the one provided by GameDevHQ. I've tried to code every day, but this weekend I had to take a pause, because I just haven't had the energy to do anything. One cause for this has most likely been that I've tried to shift my habits from staying up late to waking up early.

Yes, I have encountered the same problem. I find trying to learn and practise is so tiring it leaves me with no energy to do anything else. Jayne

Hey Everyone!
My coding sessions were still aligned with my goals. I build a web project that is a todo app made using React and Firebase. I also did freecodecamp challenges.
Feel free to connect with me on Instagram and Linkedin

Happy Coding!

This week I had took sometime to practice some algorithms problems which is essential to my job seeking. meanwhile I had came up with an idea for the hackathon that I am attending and is going to draft some code later this week. overall, these all aligned the goals that I want to achieve.

My problem is that I like to delve into many areas rather than just concentrating on one. I identified Bootstrap as my main focus and while that is still the case, I am also doing an online course on becoming a WordPress Developer. That course talks about WP specific php and using a Local Host (which is great). It is an intensive course and it is for that reason, I do a bit of it each day. On top of that, I am building a blog from scratch (again WP).
But back to the question - I was glad to rediscover Codeacademy because I found a FREE course Building a Webpage using Bootstrap! I am almost finished and it has been an excellent introduction and I love the name 'Jumbotron'! I really like Bootstrap! The difficulty I had was I was stuck on HTML and CSS so much so that I struggled to consider anything else! HTML and CSS were like, if I can use this analogy - your old and worn comfortable slippers which you know should be thrown away but you can't bear to part with them and break-in a new pair.
The resources I originally outlined are still in place, but I do have to say Codeacademy has helped to make the learning journey easier. Finally, I have to credit CodeNewbie's weekly emails for reminding me about Codeacademy. Right, that's enough from me! Jayne

My coding sessions are still aligned with set goals. I'm trying to adjust my daily schedule to squeeze in more study/coding time.
Honestly need to work on discipline and time management.

Hi Paul,

I must admit it can take me ages to get through a 10 minute video!
