Got the urge to give algorithms a break and practice more HTML/CSS

I’m a little over halfway through the basic JS algorithms, which have taken me a considerable amount of time to go through slowly and really learn to understand what I’m doing. Brick wall after brick wall, I’m slowly climbing over them but right now as I sit stuck in front of the next challenge, I have the urge to go back to HTML/CSS and do some more practice by building some side projects and put the algorithms to one side, maybe trying again tomorrow or within the next few days. I’m worried of wasting time continuously being stuck on JS algorithms and not really getting anything done as a result of having been mentally over absorbed with JS and algorithms up to this point when I could put that time into more productive use by taking a break doing something else to consolidate my knowledge of everything else so far. Any of you guys felt this?

Anybody else doing side projects at this early stage of their coding journey? I’d love to hear from you!

Taking a break is good. It means you won’t burn yourself out or become discouraged.
As long as you keep learning and moving towards your goal, your fine. At least that’s my thoughts on it.


So you really have two options here.

  1. Goto the and do some of the frontend stuff there. Really great stuff over there.
  2. Or go checkout my review of a Udemy Course The Web Developer Bootcamp by Colt Steel which a lot of people everywhere will tell you it’s the best course you can buy for ~15.00 USD. You can decide if that’s something for you but look at the comments. Really great stuff over there.

…well a third option. Just goto dribbble and find something you want to make and try to make it from an image. Hey, and if you get stuck let us know, and we can help you! Happy Coding!
