I find it really interesting just how excited I can be when returning to my programming projects. Normally I’ve all of these marketing/social media projects that keep me busy. But over the weekend I did a little programming. It’s exciting. I like debugging. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still frustrating, but at least I have something that can tell me I’m doing something wrong. Then it’s up to me to fix it. There are so many situations in life where you don’t get that feedback, so you don’t know you’re doing something wrong. The personal life debugging is so difficult. If you do get that feedback it can highly likely be in terms you don’t understand. Any information returned from programming, at least, is returned in phrases that you understand. You just have to figure out how it’s connected to your code.
Either way I still miss it. I’ve got so much else to do as well I can’t focus on it as much as I want to sometimes.
I also wish I could understand more of how to connect things together. Like how to connect code to websites, or use code on an excel file. I’ve done it before, but I’m still not 100% on the understanding part. I’m working on understanding some bits and pieces and it’s slowly coming together. It’s just not all there yet. Without that understanding I know I’ll be in a bad situation for more complicated programming, especially for doing things on my own.
Which brings me back to realizing just how much more I have to learn.
