Today was not really a good one. There were only a few challenges, but I had a hard time wrapping my head around what they were asking us to do. It’s 11pm now, and just having finished one of the afternoon challenges (cookies) I should probably go home and go to bed. I know I haven’t been getting enough sleep, but the pressure to finish all the exercises is intense. There’s no way I could start and finish the remaining one in the next 30 minutes, but everyday is packed so full that it makes me really nervous to even think about not completing a challenge. If this is the only one I don’t get to during the week, I should be able to do it over the weekend.
We also lost one of our cohorts today (he left the program). George started with me as a DBC Sea Lion (each group gets a San Francisco-specific nickname), and was also repeating phase 1 as a Banana Slug. I know it was a tough decision for him to make, and I hope it was the right one for him, but I think the type learning environment here just wasn’t right for him. Hell, I’m still not even 100% sure it’s right for me.
