Why I'm Going to Lambda School

Starting next Monday, January 13th 2020, I will be taking the Lambda School Full Stack Web Development course. To take the course I quit my job, moved in with my brother, and will devoting my time to completing the class.

I'm willing to spend this time taking the course because I want to be a programmer who makes peoples lives easier with software. In the short time I spent at my previous job, I have learned how software can improve an employees job, and how it can make it worse. I want to make the world a better place, and never forget that the most important part of software is the user.

I'm also takign the course because want a well paying job. Money, while not able to buy happiness itself, is instrumental in everything you want to do. With money I can buy what I want, help my family pay off their debts, and donate to the causes I think are most important.


I'm sure that I could go on and on, finding little reasons that contributed to my decision to start the Lambda School course. But I don't think humans are as varied in their reasons for doing stuff as we like to think. So let's summarize it:

And that's why I'm going to half-ass it with all I've got. My goal isn't to complete Lambda School, but to reach my goals I will finish it.

See you all in the future.
