Hopscotch Coding Schedules


#1

Hi guys!
I haven’t been on the forum or even hopscotch for a little bit because of all the schoolwork and just school stuff! I also realized that many of you have the same problem and don’t have enough time to code or hop on the forum!

A tip for you is to pursue it in the mornings. Like right now, I am writing this at 6:53 AM. I like to take out a solid 10 minutes of my time to code in the mornings, and it doesn’t make much of a difference since I get to school on time with everything. However, for some reason, I always felt more confident in school after posting a piece of code on Hopscotch I am proud of.

The bus ride home! If you take the bus, this is a great one for you! I do take two really long bus rides going to school and coming back, so I try to use these blocks of time to go on Hopscotch, maybe whip out my laptop and try to get WIFi to get on the forum. I am personally so bored on the bus rides, and this method can be of a great help to you.

And lastly, over the weekends! This may be a very cliche answer, but you might have more time over the weekend than you think. Research for a science project? It is probably going to end up just surfing the internet. Try to structure your weekends a certain way that you have at least 1-2 hours at the end of the week for a little me time, which is very important so that you don’t burn out. This time COULD be used for hopscotch and forum surfing as well!

Thanks for reading! I hope these tips helped you!

This is pretty cool but i don’t have the self control to do it lol


#3

I code after school and on the afternoons on weekends, and that is my coding schedule.

Ha, @memorablechickenyay
I’m sure you could regain self-control when you put your mind to it@

@William04GamerA - Coding after school and weekend afternoons is a great time to code. Many people, including myself are packed with homework and classes after school, but I always make an attempt to get some coding in. :smile:
Also, a huge thank you for commenting, liking, and viewing so many of my posts! I just wanted to let you know that I am noticing your participation on my posts and on the forum in general, and I commend you for that! Thanks again!

@memorablechickenyay- I have a question for you: do you have time to go on hopscotch? What kind of things do you code when you do find time?


#7
  1. Yes
  2. Normally maths stuff or simple trail art, nothing worth sharing really

#8

I think what you should do (and frankly, what I should also do) is to challenge yourself a little bit. Take 1 hour to 2 hours out of your day to watch a challenging tutorial and see how far you can go with it! Maybe you can do more than you think, rather than math stuff and simple trail art.

You know what? I should totally listen to my own advice. Ha.

yeah, the thing is i concentrate more on text programming now, mostly web dev. i love hopscotch but it can be a little frustrating to not be able to work with physical buttons on a keyboard. i might make something slightly good though soon

Haha, that actually made me laugh, i needed that, thank you
