It wasn't until I wanted my web development to grow past simple menus and using plugins to solve my problems and try my hand at making actual web apps; instead, I realized how convoluted my self-driven education had been. Those EdTech services were not the only ones at fault, I had also gone into this learning experience the wrong way. I had no practical uses or intentions for learning web development, so all the lessons were just for show. It took time for me to realize just what web development and proper design was capable of. But getting out of the ditch I had dug myself was more difficult than could have been anticipated.
