I’m still playing catch up …
… to where I think ‘ideal’ me should be at this point.
Stand up time:
Last 7 Days
Over the course of the past week, I …
‘Failed’ to finish up the home study curriculum - it’s denser (and waaaaaay richer) than I estimated. I’m about 80% done, give or take.
Wrote the blog post, yay! – See it here.
Made it to week 3 of the CS50 intro to comp sci course - one week short of my target.
Implemented and hosted a small project using the Fetch API - A random quote generator.
Revamped my study curriculum, again, implementing feedback gleaned from my pal and adapting it to my current time frame (5–6 weeks). See it live here.
Failed to finish up the YDKJS book – sheer indiscipline, no excuses.
Started and made it past the halfway point of Codecademy’s Learn SQL course. Currently on Lesson 4/4.
Purchased Wes Bos’ Learn Node course – before prices allegedly go up again.
A Few Reflections
While not impressed, at all, with my progress for the past week, I’m not sober about it either.
There were days where I could have, and should have, accomplished more, but I gave into procrastination by planning. 🤷🏾♂️
Also, I don’t think running multiple courses concurrently is helping either.
Next 7 Days
Finish up Andela’s home study curriculum
Take home study assessment
CS50, week 5
Finish YDKJS Scopes and Closures
Improve, even if by a little, upon the Random Quotes App.

A few for last week. Here:
The power situation in my area is not funny at all. We’ve, for the past 6–8 weeks, not had even a minute of power supply.
I, on average, consume 3 - 4GB daily streaming lectures from all edges of the internet. While I’m not complaining about the cost any more (I’m honestly tired), stability is now a pain.
Lectures which are supposed to be an hour long tops are taking me 1.5 to 2 hours because of buffering.
Anyhow, sha, the boy is undeterred.
Here’s to a fruitful week!
