It looks like I will land my first developer job very soon, which will also be my first ‘real’ full-time job ever. I’m very excited about the company and the people. The position is exactly what I was looking for (and also something that is hard to find) and even the location is perfect.
Later this week I will have my second interview and I’m freaking nervous. If I get this job, I will be like a dream come true. When I was 13 years old I started with webdesign (HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator), but about 9 years ago I completely stopped. I did not believe in myself and being enrolled in university I also couldn’t find the time to continue web development.
Everything changed around the time my country got into corona lockdown. I always felt an immense pressure to do as much as possible every day and not once I thought about what I really wanted with my life. The lockdown forced me to ‘slow down’ and to my own surprise this made me rediscover my passion for web design and development.
In this topic I want to share my journey. I hope it will inspire others.
