Jul 31: This Strawberry Cream Cheese Nilla Wafer cake was initialized as a way to celebrate the last day of Hack Reactor Prep, but halfway through the day it morphed into a celebration of my acceptance into the Dev Bootcamp coding program!!!!!!!! Thank you thank you thank you to all who have cheered me on and offered encouragement during this very long process. Mid-August I start Phase 0 of the program, with 20-25 hours/week of remote pair-programming. Phase 1 begins in mid-October and will require something like 80 hours a week of studying and class time for me. I have no idea how we're going to make that work, but we'll figure it out and in 2016 I'll start the job hunt. What a fantastic way to launch into the weekend.

  • kasiafinkCongrats, love!
  • thatwife@mollylauf once I start classes they will be at 633 Folsom, which I think is pretty close to where you live, right? And I'm a 12 minute drive from NatureBox. We have so many connections now! I've been keeping an eye on the NatureBox site just to see if any jr Dev positions come up
  • thatwife@nomerstoo I think this cake is a win. A white cake recipe by Add A Pinch (that I overcooked a tad), fresh strawberry frosting by Barefeet in the Kitchen that was a bit too runny but I added in extra cream cheese and butter and now it
  • thatwife@nomerstoo and now it's that homemade sort of good, and the crumbles that I invented really make the top. Nilla Wafers put in the Kitchenaid and beaten up a bit with melted butter and cream cheese. Then toasted at a low temperature so they turned crispy again
  • chey_starkWoo Hoo!!!
  • sbvasconWait, are you still trying for Hackbright? And yoga?! Or maybe that's a computer language I don't understand. Either way, congratulations! 😃
  • jaxharmonCongrats, that's so awesome! 80 hours a week studying sounds overwhelming, but you'll make it! Design school has long hours like that but if it's something you love it's not too bad. And when it gets tough just remind yourself it's not for forever! Good luck with everything, it's definitely worth celebrating!
