I Decided to Sacrifice My Personal Life to Learn Code and Overcome The Learning Curb in My Chosen Niche
Play this article

Alone on a Saturday night. My only friends it seems, are my laptop computer and a deep desire to learn the skill of coding.

I am also researching and writing about my chosen niche. I just wrote a short article on Medium.com, and in my opinion, it falls short. I want to give so much more, but the learning curve seems insurmountable at times.

-I wonder if anyone is even listening...

-I wonder if the work I am doing will actually help someone...

-I wonder why I have this desire to learn code and build websites...

-I wonder how the other side educating myself looks...

At 52, transiting careers is dark, scary and full of challenges that constantly force me to confront my fears. Sometimes I want to quit, but there's no turning back.

I read an article by Edmond Hui, "Should You Self Study or Join a Coding Bootcamp?" I felt understood. Thanks for writing such a great post.

Learning code and aspiring to be a website designer/developer in my chosen niche, is a complete personal sacrifice. My life is literally devoted to learning, researching, writing and doing free work.

I definitely have faith, but as I said, sometimes the other side of this seems too far to reach.

Give me a following and stay updated on my progress...

Thank you
