I just wanted to take a moment…while I have managed to get my chin above these waves…just before I take on more water … to say- I love it. And I am so happy that I jumped in. This has been a wild ride but clearly I am still a tough little rider. (No really, I am a horseback rider too.)
Last week we were assigned one last assignment using jquery & AJAX to create an app utilizing an API as well as a CRUD server. One last chance to bring it all together before we RUN IT ALL OVER with angular.js!
I will make it brief and say that it was a success. And I was incredibly proud to be able to demo my app with my team on Monday morning in front of Calvin and our entire class— and for it to work & do all the things that we planned 🙂
Because it just feels so DAMN GOOD when it works!
I’m not one for drama- but I will say that I have been putting in the work… And I REALLY needed that.
You could say that I am typically ready and willing with commentary and questions in person (both in and out of lecture)… but I am also smart enough to know that when things are put in writing they become real. (For those who question that —> see my creeperApp that I made last week which scrapes a ton of public databases for records of YOU!)
For me- when I actually publish something it goes from being an idea into a real commitment. And that means that everyone will know whether I have failed or succeeded. And even more- that means that I will know. And its scary because I know that I am in control of my life and that it is my own fault if I loose sight of the goal and don’t follow through.
So this is me just putting it out there—— that I am going to finish strong. Like the tough little rider I know I am.
