I’m almost two weeks in the project and still can’t pass all challenges. Tried my own code, restarted 3 times. (200 - 300 lines of code: very ugly
if else spaghetti) It was tiring, but I was learning by practicing. Then I reached that point I said, ‘Ok, time to see some tutorial about this.’
Found a couple. The src code are much cleaner, but not complete. The result was the same as what I was getting with my own code, if not actually worse.
At this point, I think I’ll start over - again. With my own code. I think I got some new insights, by watching those tutorials.
I like this feeling. The difficulty of trying to learn something, getting to the edge of almost wanting to give up. I recognize that I’ve been here before and failed. It’s a very challenging phase. Hopefully, this time, with more perseverance and more learning, I break through - this time around.
