Here we are, day 31! Just sitting on the struggle bus a bit. So I decided to take a break Friday and yesterday. I was having shooting pain in my shoulder anytime I'd move it a certain way and was growing concerned about it. Turns out (at least I think so) that it might be from sleeping on my couch! (lol) I slept in my bed the last 2 days or so and that's really seemed to help things.
So obviously that's put a small break in this challenge but I am telling myself (and I would tell this to other devs or Code Newbies) not to be so self-deprecating when it comes to taking a break. It wouldn't have been good to make the pain/injury worse by coding and moving my shoulder into the direction it was hurting at. Also, breaks are great! It's always great to step away from things or the daily routine you have. At least I find it helpful for myself.
Anyways - speaking of loops. I jumped back into my Udemy course with Colt Steele. I did the Intro to Loops section and a few exercises on while loops that actually made sense. I also keep thinking I need to write a dev.to post too.
I think there's just a lot going on right now in my "work" situation that's pouring over into life and the actual career change I want to make. I had an interview for a software dev internship and they said they liked my portfolio but their concern was I had 0 back-end experience. They said I'd have an answer by EOD Friday and no one ever contacted me. It might be for the best. I know it would be great for experience but it would be a pay decrease. Which then I fall back to thinking maybe I should've just bit the bullet and signed up for that bootcamp.
I'll stop ranting. TL:DR; Worked on while loops in Udemy, I'm stressed about my job, and I feel like a JS dunce.
