It's time to build. Signing off of social media for a bit.

It's time to build. It has been brought to my attention that I have some fantastic ideas, and it's time to execute them.
After countless rejections, time to focus.

I will be sharing my learnings in weekly threads, with snapshots of what I'm doing. I will be uninstalling Twitter from my phone for the foreseeable future.

Only using Twitter to check in with communities I'm involved with and starting to work on some small projects.

These heavy moments don't feel great. It's hard. I am a parent and sole provider for my family, not currently working in tech trying to make this transition. I'm tired. I've worked in the ER throughout the pandemic. I have learned to code and build things. The feedback from job interviews is to JUNIOR or not enough technical chops.

This needs to change. I figured if I can build my own thing, whatever it is somebody will give me a shot. OR my own thing will provide enough value for me to focus on it full time.

    I've been trying to be more consistent on Twitter but at the same time, I've been spending too much time on it. Uninstalling it is a good idea, focus on building! good luck with it!

    Best of luck @EmmettNaughton, both in life generally and with your project!
