First Week Summary is in the books and as they say, ‘how time flies’.
Prior to the start of class, I plowed through Codecademy and several other online courses which made me feel pretty confident. I may have overestimated how much I really understood about layout and positioning. I understand the ‘box model’, but actually applying it from scratch was challenging. “Everything is a box!” Good stuff though! It re-enforces everything when you actually do it. By the end of the week, I needed to take some time to absorb everything and let it all sink in. For me, it helped and I’ll probably do more of that to make sure I understand concepts before just plowing forward. I tend to be pretty methodical anyway, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that I wanted to review some things.
So I’m on the island, learning the environment, learning how to survive, to cope, and eventually even thrive. Like Tom Nolan said, ‘Breathe’…
All Tom could muster for support was a volleyball. We have far better than ‘Wilson’ to help us get the fire going 🙂
