Month 1, Day 14
I have been on hiatus for a while, and I am just on the 14th day of my journey now. Early December when I started to feel pain in my back and right stomach. It was the most excruciating pain I felt in my life. I thought it was just a one time thing, but I was wrong. It went on and reoccurred every 2-4 days. I started to feel traumatized of the evening, because it was when it usually attack.
Christmas holidays in my country is a big thing, and I was not able to get an appointment with a Gastro Dr until after the New Year. My situation became worst, as I Googled a lot about my symptoms. I saw the most horrifying diagnosis like cancer, and other terminal illness. It felt like my world stopped as I went through this. I was so scared I might have something serious, what would I do? At some moments, I would keep praying to extend my life. I have so much more things I want to accomplish and witness in life.
Finally saw my doctor, had series of tests, and check-ups. It’s not something life-threatening, thank God.
Now, I am starting to come back to my normal routine. Now, I appreciate more than ever my time.
I am already done with my Udacity Challenge Course on Front end, so I am just waiting for schedule of the final assessment, which will happen in February.
A major change happened at work, which gives me anxiety, but I decided not to worry about it for now. I will be on my Sabbatical leave soon, so I’d cross that bridge when I get back.
I was able to get back to my CSS Grid Layout review today. I have my Part 2 and Part 3 published. I regret not using my company provided Teamtreehouse sooner. Among all providers I have been using in the past couple of years, Teamtreehouse is my second favorite after Khan Academy. I really like Guil Hernandez. I used to work as a trainer, and teaching has always been my passion. I am so motivated by the instructors I see online. I know my long term plan is to get a spot in Dev, but somehow, if I want to become ambitious, I want to teach IT someday.
I guess I’ve done enough for today. I wanted to be able to come back on track slowly. I wanted to finish the following before my Sabbatical in March.
