100 Days of Code: Day 62

Home / Technology / Web Development / 100 Days of Code: Day 62
I have finally earned my JavaScript Algorithms and Data Structures certification from Free Code Camp, as well as the CCA JavaScript Level 1 certificate. I've also gotten lost inside one of my favorite nonfiction books that I've ever read.

Turns out it was just that I had too many things logging to the console and it was making my loops terminate prematurely. 🙄😂

Once I got that figured out (it took a little while), I was finally finished.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5790″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_outline” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.freecodecamp.org/certification/blissfullemon/javascript-algorithms-and-data-structures”][vc_column_text]

Reasons to Stay Alive

As soon as I finished the project, I shared my certificate on Twitter and ran away for the rest of the morning/early afternoon. I started listening to Matt Haig’s book ‘Reasons to Stay Alive‘ while I was sorting through my task list and Trello boards, and I got completely swept away by the book.

That’s the odd thing about anxiety and depression. It acts like an intense fear of happiness, even as you, yourself, consciously want that happiness more than anything. So, if it catches you smiling, even fake smiling, then, well, that stuff’s just not allowed and you know it. So here comes ten tons of counterbalance.

Seriously, this guy has such a way of explaining his personal feelings of anxiety and depression that there were times I had to pause and remind myself how to breathe. It left me simultaneously anxious and hopeful, which was a rather bizarre feeling. I’m just shy of 75% through the book but I can already say it is, without a doubt, one of my absolute favorite pieces of nonfiction. I can’t wait to dive into some of his other books (fiction and nonfiction), including ‘How to Stop Time‘ (already on my bookshelf) and his brand spankin’ new book ‘Notes on a Nervous Planet’ once it is available in the US.

 Back to JavaScript

Eventually, I took a little break to eat unripened nectarines lunch and I realized I still needed to test for the CCA JavaScript Level 1 certification from the Web Developer course I’m taking on Udemy. Why not do it now while it’s all still so fresh in my mind?[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5795″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_outline”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
