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.
