Thanks! I'll check out MySQL I haven't start on Java/ Java script yet but I'm open to info :-) I'm really tying to find a path because if I'm gonna make a career jump I want to have a clue about direction. I don't expect to be an expert when I start but right now I feel so lost

@eeyore8 of course! It is completely normal to feel lost at first. I felt the same way(and definitely cried more than I would like to admit when first starting out). It is very overwhelming to choose your first language especially with so many strong opinions regarding each language online.
I found it easiest to Google the most common languages used in backend development then try some out. I explored languages using Codecademy and FreeCodeCamp.
Java is difficult to learn but not impossible.
