For future DS106ers, I really advice to be open minded. I remember at the beginning of the year I would get pretty frustrated trying to complete an assignment a certain way. But the thing is, things won’t always go as smoothly as you think. There will be obstacles and this requires some creativity to get around. Perhaps one way just isn’t going to work, so you gotta stop for a second and brainstorm some alternative ideas to accomplish what you want to do. Another piece of advice is to not wait til the last minute! There were times that I was cutting it pretty close, but thankfully I gave myself just enough time to complete my assignments. But yeah, do not wait until the last minute because then you won’t get to learn anything or actually enjoy it. You’ll be too busy trying just to get it done.
