What have I been doing with my quarantine time? Picking up some JavaScript training and making some good progress too. If you have the time and resources I would highly recommend a coding boot camp, especially now that you can access them from anywhere via Zoom.

In another story of captivity, under the Pharaoh in Egypt, the Children of Israel were valued only by how many bricks they could make each day. When they left Egypt it took years to get that mentality out of them - to move into being identified not by what they did but by who they were.
