The past two weeks of my life have been a blur, equal parts stress-crushing and high-exciting.

For a little while, I’ve been trying to figure out how to learn coding/programming, because for a longer while, I’ve been looking for a career switch. My job in clinical research was good, but it was initially meant as a gap year deal. Didn’t get into the school I wanted, so then what? My interests in becoming a healthcare professional waned the longer I was in a patient-health environment. That ruled out med/optometry school. I could expand and grow in the clinical research industry, maybe become monitor, but to, what, spend half my time traveling site to site, double checking peoples’ work to make sure they checked the right boxes and signed the correct lines?

Nah. Boring. I need something new.
