That phrase isn’t foreign to you, yeah?
Barely hours after publishing my ‘plan’, 7 whole days have flown by and guess what?
I wasn’t riding first class or even coach, I was more like a stowaway in the cargo hold.
That was a silly analogy up there, right?
But you know what isn’t silly or in the least funny?
The fact that time is ticking. Now, on to accountability.
Last 7 Days
Rounded up the ES6 Course on Udacity.
Did some major overhaul to my study repo which makes it and the notes contained within browsable on Github Pages (See live site here).
Started CS50 (currently on week 1).
Got an idea on a simple project I could (and should) whip up which would, alongside aiding my learning, help me simplify a challenge I’m facing at work.
Applied to Andela.
Sought feedback from a pal who has accomplished my current goal about my proposed ‘plan of action’.
Next 7 Days
Review, again, the new Andela Homestudy Curriculum.
Write a blog post detailing my thought process while solving an algorithm challenge last week which had me using new concepts I learned from the recently completed ES6 course.
Make it to at least week 4 of the CS50 course.
Get started and possibly finish up the first iteration of the simple project I talked about earlier.
Implement feedback gleaned from the pal.
Finish up YDKJS Scopes and closures.
Solve more algorithm challenges.
Stick to a fucking regular sleep schedule!
I, for Christ’s sake, don’t know when to (how to?) call it a night!
Case in point:
Monday night, when I was revamping my study repo to make it a browsable website. I did succeed, but I ended up sleeping by almost 3am making almost the whole of Tuesday a ‘disaster’.
Here, have a look:
I couldn’t commit anything on the 18th (Wednesday) because nothing was done on Tuesday. Shame.
Another thing, note-taking.
What should I note down when following a lecture and what should I depend on the neurons in my hippocampus to note for me?
Looking back, I think week 0 was fair. On a scale of 1–10, my performance relative to my expectations would be a 4.
There’s still a ton of work to do, consistency is all I am gunning for.
Till next week.
And oh, Disney, why?! Why did you gun Gunn?!!
