Week 2 – Keeping it Real

Coding has been a source of frustration but when I figure out something on my own it’s the most satisfying feeling in the world. 

My inspiration for this pong game has been my period. I have endometriosis, which is when the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus like roots overtaking a sidewalk except the sidewalk is your ovaries. This causes painful cysts to grow and explode like little nukes. It’s awful. At least that is what they think is going on, however, they don’t know for sure (future scheduled surgery). But, I digress. 

 

Much like the mystery of my own body complications, coding for me expresses those same frustrations. I feel like I understand a lot more than before but there is still so much to learn and do. I have pretty high expectations for myself and coding definitely have challenged that. However, I am determined to be self-sufficient and learn it all. 

I’m currently at a coffee shop let’s just say when you Google search “vagina” in a public place you get some side eye stares.
