Hello everyone! Long time no see.
Today is a bit of a sentimental post but also one that really calls into question my determination to be a Dev.
I was calmly frustrated at the problems presented in the FCC algorithms and Data structures section of FCC JS and when presented with almost every test I had a realization:
I was shocked at my own honesty, and I realized I had been keeping something from myself. I knew I was struggling and constantly looking for answers and peeking at hints instead of trying to solve a problem when the answer wasn’t blindingly obvious.
So my question is: is there something I should do to fix this, or should I restart the FCC JS course and implement a new strategy (I have a few ideas of what I was doing wrong and how to fix it).
I felt my motivation plummet while writing this post, but I suppose this is something everyone goes through. I was caught up in reading posts where people claimed that JS eventually just “Clicked” and I kept telling myself it would eventually “click” but I now feel that you can’t make the mental chains “Click” if you don’t have the chains to begin with.
Thanks in advance,
