Coding school is hard.

I didn’t think it was going to be easy, really. I just didn’t really consider how hard it would really be. I’m a sharp girl. Maybe not razor sharp all the time, but I can do this. I can do this! Right?

A minute passes and then two, and I’m right back to where I always am: How the hell am I going to do this?

I don’t have an answer. Some days I feel like I do temporarily but then it fades. I’m just waiting for it to fade with less frequency.

I’ll share a victory I had today. I have a GingerMeetsKeyboard logo!:


I got a little inspiration from my classmate Catie and a little help from Christina, another student who is our resident graphic designer, to help implement it. I’m so happy, I’ve never had a logo before. I feel the need to celebrate!

Unfortunately there is no time to do so. I have to get back to work for a little bit. One thing I have learned is that I’m not going to get this damn thing unless I practice. A LOT. Similar to learning to play an instrument I would guess. Except that instrument is a language, and it doesn’t make your mother miserable when you practice in the basement.
