Heh, so obviously I failed at posting everyday... I'm almost done with Coding Dojo. (Our cohort is going a bit long.) It's been a great experience. I've learned soooo much. I keep feeling like I haven't learned much until I start talking about each language and program I've done with people and I realize that it all would have been gibberish to me a few months ago so that's a cool feeling. The other thing I've realized is that coding isn't what I want to do with the rest of my life... yet. These few months I've been trying to figure out the plan. Do I go to Seattle? San Francisco? Do I want to work for a startup? an established company? Do I want a job where I go into the office so that I have structure or do I want a remote job so I can work anytime, anywhere? The answer I've come up with. I don't know. Maybe none of the above?! I'm not ready to pick a place I've only spent a few days in and settle there. I haven't experienced enough to pick a job to do for the rest of my life. And as much as I love the comfort of my laptop, staying in my comfort zone is boring. I want to meet people, see places, experience things. At least until I come across something that makes me want to stay. There are so few moments in my life where I loop back and feel that I was exactly where I should have been. Doing something that how ever many years later, feels worthwhile. So, right now I am looking at different volunteer opportunities abroad. Specifically volunteer opportunities that don't cost thousands of dollars as I'm basically broke. I don't have the money so I'll need something where I work my way. I feel like that will be more rewarding anyway.
That's my news. Sorry it's been so long since I posted!
