JavaScript is Less Scary with Friends

After only two lessons worth of JavaScript, I thought that my head was going to explode. I was thinking to myself “Isn’t it too early in my NSS career to have a meltdown already?” It’s becoming increasingly clearer to me that I’m going to have to put in some serious man-hours in order to be able to absorb and regurgitate this material. It’s time to pull out the big guns.

So for Wednesday of this week, I called out of work sick, and dedicated most of the day to going over what we learned in class the previous two days. I also had the opportunity to meet up with Dre from my group. I guess what they say about two heads being better than one is quite true. Together, we were able to help each other understand the material we just learned, and get a great jump on this week’s homework assignments. There were certain things that I had a hard time wrapping my head around, like for loops and using them to cycle through an array. But after my meetup with Dre, I feel like I have a much better understanding now. Not a complete understanding, but I definitely feel more confident today than I did yesterday and the two days prior.

It’s days like today where I truly believe I made the right choice in going to NSS. I feel like having the opportunity to have physical teachers to learn from (not just videos), as well as fellow classmates to consult with, is well worth the price of tuition.

Until next time…
