There’s something to be said about wanting to make a change but not knowing what to do about it. It’s called: Not enough data.
Here’s what my life’s looked like in recent years:
I used to want to become an animator. Maybe I should do that.
Some time after the coconut incident, it occurs to me that there’s always been one constant for happiness in my life: solving problems through applied technology. I dig it. I geek out on it. It’s my thing.
And this is sort of how I ended up at the Flatiron School.
I don’t think I’ll ever be done debugging my life. But what I do know is that it feels great being at Flatiron. I’m surrounded by awesome people that share an insatiable desire to learn. One week in, and it’s clear to us all that this is not your typical continuing-education course. The new order of the day is to let go of all pretenses and free your inner nerd. Like Avi said on Day 1: Be open to learn and don’t be an asshole.
Make yourself useful.
