I’ve been banging my head against a wall for a bit with my latest freeCodeCamp project, so I decided to take a break for about a week and play around with a couple other things. I find it really helpful to do that, and I’ve been trying to take a step back and look at the whole picture in various parts of my life- it’s so easy to get stuck focusing and worrying about a single thing, that you can’t see a simple solution!
I joke a lot about the hours I work as a pastry chef, and one day during a conversation with my co-workers I realised that few of them knew how to figure out what their hourly wage was. I was pretty shocked, but then, these guys hadn’t really read their contracts either… I had an idea for a little web page that people could use to figure out exactly how much they earn per hour. I called it “What Am I Worth?”
I’d quite like to keep playing around with this project- I think that there could be the opportunity to add features, and it might be something that I could build on as I learn more. I feel like I’ve taken a nice little step back now anyway, so I’m looking forward to getting back to my freeCodeCamp project!
