Not Getting Any Clearer…(yet)
Week two at Code Academy has been a bit crazy. Everything is really fuzzy…html, css, ruby, hash, class, curly bracket, pipes, array, etc. What? Word on the streets of 1871 is that class tomorrow will be full of ah-ha moments. Click, click, click!! Can’t wait. Currently just plugging away at the Pine book and Ruby Koans.
Chicago is such an awesome city to be in while attending a life changing course like this. The city has become so creative and full of forward-looking energy over the past 5 years. The heat wave we have been experiencing is noteworthy…over 100 today (again). Tomorrow too. A storm on Saturday may push us out of this misery.
Have been meeting wonderful people in the CA community. Super nice, helpful and fun to be around. I miss my family dearly, but keeping my eye on the prize has helped me get through the tough moments. Spending the 4th of July without them was really difficult. Seeing pictures of them in their star spangled outfits did put a smile on my face.
Focusing on an idea for Idea Lab tomorrow night has been fun yet challenging. Ryan (hubby) and Grant (friend) have opened up their hearts, schedules and skills to help my team (whomever that may be) create a kick butt website/application. They have some mad business and design skills that I feel so lucky to have on my side. Still blows my mind that 9 weeks from now I will be going home to San Diego with a website/application that I was instrumental in building. Makes me giddy when I think about showing it to my little girls in September.
My mind is open and clear and ready for whatever tomorrow has to bring!
