1. Give your coding session from Mission 4 a score from 1-10 (with 10 being the best)
If I'm being honest, I think I'd only give this session a score of 5. I was able to dedicate a solid chunk of time to coding but I still feel like I'm really struggling to grasp the syntax and core concepts of JavaScript. I think I'll need to adjust my plan to pursue more structured and guided courses first to establish a solid base in the language before returning to resources like fCC.

2. Tell us what you've been working on and what you've been having a hard time with.
As mentioned above, I'm currently working through the JavaScript course on fCC. I really like the self-paced nature of fCC but with JavaScript I'm having a lot more trouble than I experienced with HTML and CSS. I think I'd definitely benefit with an actual intro course (structured walkthrough or lecture) to better understand the fundamentals of the language.

Yes! I've been using this video a lot when I get stuck on a lesson. It's been great.
