A little about myself: I worked in the service industry for over ten years. It had its ups and downs. From all the great people I met along the way, to all the crazy brunches spent waiting for that darn, “Salmon Benedict, sauce on the side, make-sure-the-yolk-is-runny-but-the-white-is-cooked-through,” to come out of the kitchen. I decided to start this blog as a guide to anyone feeling stuck in a dead-end job, but mostly as motivation for me to continue on this path I’ve taken to learn something new. 2020 showed up, and we all know how that turned out. If you’re reading this in 2021; congratulations, you made it! Let me know how green the grass is over there because we currently don’t have any. On June first, I started a coding Bootcamp at Flatiron School thanks to a grant from the great state of New York.

I couldn’t answer then, but over the years living in New York I’ve certainly learned what I’m passionate about: helping people, making someone laugh, and being true to myself. I’m happy to say I’ve finally found my tribe in this cohorts of coders. It takes a serious kind of passion to sit in front of a computer for 15 hours straight. I’m currently on week four of my coding bootcamp, and I have so many things I want to talk to you about. I’ll talk about the process of getting into a bootcamp and what to expect once you’re in, help you to face the terminal without fear, and share my favorite hints and tips. I’ve just begun my journey so I don’t have all the answers, but I’m here to learn with you. Maybe you will find similarities in your situation and decide to get coding too. end
