What To Do, What To Do, Week -8

After applying and interviewing for a bunch of internships and coding bootcamps and receiving a bunch of rejections and acceptances, I’ve decided to head to Fullstack Academy this summer.

These are interesting times.

After applying and interviewing for a bunch of internships and coding bootcamps and receiving a bunch of rejections and acceptances, I’ve decided to head to Fullstack Academy this summer which is located in New York City to be part of their inaugural class for their Summer of Code program. Ok, wow, that was a mouthful!

It’s only for college kiddies and surprisingly there’s not many programs designated specifically for us, so it’s pretty cool that Fullstack decided to implement this.

It was a big decision and was not to be taken lightly. My parents supported me throughout the whole process and for that, I’m appreciative.

I’m hoping to finally gain those “practical skills” in web development so I can finally start implementing all the ideas I have for potential web apps!

If everything goes as planned, senior year is going to fly by! 😉

But anywhoozies, yay me!!!
