I’ve solved some the challenges…on my own!!
Some people might think it’s a bit early to rejoice - I’m not even halfway through the challenges and I’ve sometimes spent hours and hours to solve one, and with that my solutions are complicated to the point of absurdity.
But here’s the thing: I’ve had a serious mental problem with anything even remotely linked with mathematics. That is, if you ask me what 2+2 is, I’ll say 4 because I’ve heard it was the right thing to say. If you keep silent however, and wait a little, I’ll start twitching uncomfortably until something else blurts out: Yes, I can say it’s 4, but I’m not sure I believe it. I mean, I don’t feel it, not the way I feel things in other topics.
And for those who say challenges are not maths, well a + sign is usually enough to have me break into sweats (I’ve even found myself crying one day because I had to calculate a percentage).
Needless to say, I’ve had a lot of problems with logic.
So solving these challenges… I can’t express how it makes me feel…exhilarated, I’d say. Wanting more. Loving it. Thinking about it day and night.
Of course I might be completely stuck tomorrow and have to look up the code elsewhere…but until then, how beautiful it is! (not my code, no).
So a big thank you, I don’t know to who, just thank you.
