Day #3 Post

Tonight, is day #2 of my bootcamp. I believe we are delving into HTML. I’m excited, but don’t think I’m going to learn too much new stuff. I have already played around with HTML quite a bit, so I already understand the basics. Since the bootcamp is geared towards beginners, there’s probably going to be a lot that I’ve already done myself. However, I am no expert so going over the basics will be good for me.

I’m noticing some participants on Twitter and Discord trying to form groups to interact with, and I’m a bit hesitant to join in. I think part of my resistance is because I’m an introvert, but also because I don’t want to get distracted from the course itself or the work I need to do. I’d love to make connections and friends in this course, but that is not my primary target. I think I’ll wait to see who’s still around in a couple of weeks and who’s really committed to the process before worrying about social interactions. The Twitch stream had over 7,000 people on it at one point Tuesday. I know we’ll see significant drop-off soon, so I’m going to wait and see how the numbers shake out.

I received notification yesterday that I passed my background check for my new job. I also got a note from my new boss that my computer has shipped out and should be arriving Saturday. I’m going to have to rearrange my office to have a workstation separate from my personal computer again. I’m also thinking I’m going to set up a whiteboard or calendar for organizing a schedule of to-do tasks each week. This coming week is my last week of freedom before starting the job, so I’m wanting to use the time wisely. I have been reading/watching the videos for the bootcamp homework about smart studying tips. It’ll be interesting to see how useful it is over the next few months.
