Day 8 — Triumph over challenges

As our course progresses it’s becoming clear to me that more time is needed outside of coursework hours, more focus on the every day routines in life that require coding. It’s almost like seeing the world in a whole new light, things that went unnoticed by me are now vastly on obvious.

Today, I was excited to order a beginners guide to C# in Unity- in print. This book will arrive just next week and will live on my nightstand. The intention is to read a few chapters every night to in order to better understand the coursework the next day.

It is so exciting to imagine that quite possibly, in just a few months- I could learn enough to create a game and support my family! This has by far been one of the coolest opportunities I’ve been given and I am so thankful for it.

Mahalo to the folks who work so hard to put this together for us!
