It's funny because I'm in the same boat.Brehs, I have no idea why I never considered programming as a viable career path before. I pushed myself through a law degree to the point where I became depressed and started hating my life.
Six months ago, I saw there was a Udemy sale on a python course. Copped that and a webdev course for like 20 bucks. Always been a good student, but I used to hate studying if that makes sense.. Now for the first time in my life, I actually have to stop myself or I'll sit in front of the laptop until the next morning. Even if I get stuck on a problem (which of course happens to me all the time because I'm a total noob), I don't get frustrated and I find myself searching for solutions for hours, sometimes even days.
I'm just baffled that I never even considered programming until now when I'm in my mid 30s.
I've always loved tinkering with things and figuring out how they work since I was a young boy.
If it wasn't for this forum, the thought probably wouldn't have entered my mind.
