A Blog about my journey as as web developer

It’s not always easy

No one ever said that being a Web Developer was going to be easy.  And you know what?  I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I love what I do.  Even on the days that all I have is errors.  It’s almost like a challenge, just how many errors can I come up with today?  Not that I want to have errors or anything but it is a learning experience.  Usually the errors show up more often when I am teaching or coding live.  Knowing that they are more likely to show up those times keeps me from freaking out, and give us all a learning experience. 

Something over the last month that I have learned is that the difficulty of the code I am working on doesn’t seem to matter.  However I have noticed that my health does seem to make a difference in the amount of the mistakes I make.  If I am tired or just not feeling well I tend to make more spelling errors, or miss things.  But it’s not just your health that can effect the way we code. Big projects many times mean we are at the computer for hours on end.  All that computer screen time isn’t always good either.  Mistakes are going to happen.  I have learned over this last month or so to come to accept this fact that I am going to make mistakes and thats ok.  It’s not that I haven’t known this before, of course I did.  It’s more that I have come to accept it. My mental health this last month hasn’t been the best or more that it has been all over the place.  I oldest Graduated from High School, left for a Beach Trip, we moved, I started teaching a new class, and my current class is in their final projects.  It’s a lot.  So my mind is all over the place.

Knowing our health, and home live can change the way we code is an interesting revelation.  It’s why I haven’t posted here in a while, I needed to take care of some personal things.  Working on a big project this past month has also been a bit taxing on me as well. I can’t tell you how many times I have started parts of it over.

In the end though I have learned that I can do it.  I can push past the abundance of errors and keep going.  I can take note of the errors for future notes and keep on moving.
