I have a full time job now and I am near the end of the Front End certificate. I’ve been working on this certificate since the begining of December (almost 3 months). I just got this fulltime job because I needed more money (duh). It’s obviously not the job I want though.
I am getting frustrated sometimes when I can’t find the time to finish up these projects. At the time of this writing, I’m working on the advanced front end projects (pomodoro clock). Recently, I’ve been putting the laptop down for days at a time, coming back to them and trying to pick up right where I left off and its difficult. I’ve been commenting enough where I can read my code and know exactly whats going on. I’ve been using libraries like bootstrap and jquery to make my code shorter and easier to read.
I used to be excited to spend like 6 hours at a time on a project, but now I can’t take 6 hours to do anything. I’m either working, eating or going to work AND I live with my girlfriend who has young kids that want attention. How can I make this work? I really enjoy this stuff and I want to finish this. Its hard getting into the zone of just coding and reading and coding, when I can’t commit more than 2 hours to the laptop. Any helpful hints?!
