100 Days of Code: Day 81
100 Days of Code, Round 1
Goals For Today:
Today started out really well. I published a new post about the self-care challenges that I’ll be doing over the next several months. Afterwards, I got started on my coding challenge for the day, focusing once again on learning Redux.
The downward slope of doom…
For a while, it felt like my afternoon was quickly heading downhill. I wasn’t looking forward to trying to learn Redux today, but I don’t exactly have a ton of time to just mess around and not learn the things I need to know. So, I figured I would suck it up and try my best. Even if I could only learn one thing today, that would mean that tomorrow would be a little bit easier. Baby steps, right?
I started the ‘Performing Complex State Management with Redux’ course at Lynda.com before switching to ‘Learning Redux’ from a different instructor. I plan to finish both courses but wanted to go over the basics all at one time.
It only took a few hours of videos and a little reading from the documentation before I felt like I was ready to try my hand at the Redux challenges at Free Code Camp.
The good news? I actually finished them!
The bad news? I honestly don’t know how I finished. I still feel very confused.
Maybe I’m just overly tired at this point, but I can’t help but feel a bit daft… and utterly overwhelmed. Fortunately, while I might feel stupid, that doesn’t mean that I am.
Mama didn’t raise no dummy.

This afternoon, I am going to start reading a book from Tuts+. Then tomorrow I plan to get back to those Redux courses. It’s going to take some time, but I am determined to figure this out.
