I'm lost! 8 years as freelancer developer: it's too late for get a job in tech?

So here I’m, 31 yrs old learning again from the beginning. What I want is clear: I want a job in companies like booking, airbnb, findhotel as front-end developer. But i’m lost. am I a senior? Or mid-level? My gaps makes me a junior? I builded a lot of things in past 8 years, ecommerces, apps, websites using a lot of different things, from React to Wix… But I never felt so lost… How I get the point A (here now) to point B (my desired job) ? it’s more of a rant. i believe i need to find my miyagi master!

31? That is young if your intellect is still alive. Mind, Einstein did everything of importance in and around that age (36 when he published his Theory of General Relativity). If you keep up the pressure there is still time.

Fun fact: Did you know that Einstein was born on Pi Day?

So einstein uses const instead var?

Relatively speaking, ‘const’ is fixed, ‘var’ is mutable, even re-declarable.

 > var a = 1
<- undefined
 > var a = 2
<- undefined
 > var a = 3
<- undefined
 > a
<- 3

Yes, I know that! Einstein was born at day of celebration of the mathematical constant, that’s why I ask this question / joke.
