I am working on the Python 3 course and I am 62% finished.
Im not going to lie, its really brutal on my soul.
I feel just to dumb to remember stuff and learn how to code, I use the “show solution” function so often…
It seems on these forums that all are doing somehow well but I am stuck with the basics and they are hard for me to learn and understand. Its really tanking my motivation to run into roadblocks sooo ■■■■ often…
Should it be like that? What am I doing wrong? Do any of you have similar experience?
If you search here you will see that there’s a lot of helpful info from other learners who have struggled to retain information when learning to code. It’s normal. It’s common. Beating oneself up doesn’t help. Take a breath, take notes, practice until you understand concepts and then move forward. Go back over lessons or seek out other sources of information. (ie: python docs, etc.).
You want to run a marathon? Can you run one in under 5 hours w/o training for months? Nope.
OMG I have been feeling the same way. I appreciate you being upfront. I have been feeling the same way. And I’ve been feeling dumb and like I am not gonna make it. I have actually had to stop and go back to loops and functions because for some reason my egg brain can’t absorb it yet. I am definitely have the same roadblocks and lack of motivation. But you’re not alone. I know a couple people that are currently in positions working with code and they express the same thing at times. Hopefully we can figure it out so we can move forward!
The python 3 class makes no sense to me at all. the teacher seems too busy acting cute to actually convey information. i finished the first lesson and am halfway through the second project and nothing makes any sense. the “make your initials” project was a great example of useless info
