I’ve been outed. So let’s go deeper.


Someone at Dev Bootcamp told the whole group of students about my blog. (What’s up, Joey!)

So if you’re one of them, here’s the feedback I left for my instructors. I suppose it applies to you too.

“Please don’t be afraid to ask me directly whether I need help if you notice I seem to be working on the same line of code for a while. I’m trying to ask for help if I’m stuck for more than 10 minutes, but it’s a very new skill for me and my first instinct is to withdraw and stubbornly beat myself up until I find my (usually less than optimal, always less than quick) solution.

I’m trying to be better at managing my time. I don’t think my capacity to understand is my problem, it’s the quickness with which I expose my ignorance in an effort to reach my understanding. So please, if I’m not asking for help and you think I might need it, even a little bit, just swing by and slyly ask me how I’m doing. I’ll try to take the hint this time. :)”

If that’s a cry for help, so be it. I need it. I’ve still got to get through the last Week 1 Wednesday activity and the last 3 Thursday ones. If you have time and I’m glowering at my computer screen, I could probably use a hand. 

Thanks for finding and reading this. It’s nice to know I’m not typing in a vacuum. It keeps me honest, most importantly with myself.

Sudoku time. I’m more ready to play today than I’ve ever been.



  1. Haha, I’m glad I could help make you Internet famous! Your blog is helpful to potential phase 0’s, current phase 0’s, current students and alumni alike. Keep up the good work man! I love to read it on the train!!
