Don't compare yourself to others, run your own race

One of the things we are proud of is how easy it is to merge a pull request. Last week we were terrified to push the merge pull request button, now we eat them for breakfast. :)

We still have so many things to learn, but we are enjoying every single moment of the day. When we go home at night, our brains are full, but we are satisfied and happy. The culture at Thoughtworks and the support we get from our mentors have created an environment where we can thrive and learn. It's not clear how long it will take us to learn enough, or even what is enough, but what is clear, is that we enjoy this. That's the most important thing.

Today we spent the day learning Ruby in the morning. In the afternoon, we had a great session with David on setting up a MySQL database. We ran into some problems setting up the servers on both mac and windows environments, but we now have them running, and we can look at our data.
