I have been messing around with freecodecamp and front-end development for about 2 years now on and off. I received my bachelors in management last May and realized I had no idea what I wanted to do like many others. I accepted a job as an IT helpdesk analyst and have felt stuck and miserable since. I get anxious just thinking about my job and it has kind of ruined my motivation to do anything else.
I have made the decision to put in my two weeks tomorrow…even though unemployment is soaring currently. It’s risky but I have to get out, clear my head and define a plan going forward that will land me in a happier place.
Welcome and good luck with your goals!
I hope you find your journey enjoyable and don’t be too hard on yourself
Congrats for your first “real” work experiment ! I mean not as a student
Even if it sucks it stays an experiment, don’t take it too hard
What’s the problem with your current job ? Could you explain these feelings (to yourself) ?
Is it with the content of your work ? with the environment ? with your capacities ?
The earning is not so attractive maybe ? Are you anxious of something which doesn’t happen yet ?
Could you learn the stuff you want and build new skills with your job as the same time ?
Keep some earning during learning ?
It can be harder to be fully into something and go deep into your head with no minimum material sufficiency but, I completely agree with the fact that work can be painful…dont forget that no job should be static/eternal
Good luck with your inner self quest and have good time with learning
Thank you so much! I love freecodecamp and I can’t wait to see where it takes me
