Find Time For Coding

Hi everyone, since school has started, I find it difficult to find time for coding. In the day, I do my homework, and I try to code a little at night before sleeping. I try to code for half an hour each day, but end up coding for less than 10 minutes, OR putting it off on the next day. Can anyone please give me some advice on how to make sufficient progress on my coding skills, while still balancing school?

10 minutes seems enough :D

ig there are some times in the morning as well, but schoolwork is a priority, and it's ok if you can't do any coding, there's always the weekends and the summer!

@Coder100 but if you don't code everyday, won't you forget how to?

it's like learning how to bike, once you learn, you can't forget (doesn't mean you won't get rusty, but you won't like be unable to recognize a program) @Jackbaklava

yea I'm having the same problem, and tbh I think most people on repl.it are students (between 10-17 y/o) so they are also trying to balance school and coding, as well as friends, family time, HW, and ofc trying to get off screens @Coder100 said, if you don't code for like 1 day or even 1 week it's not like you're gonna forget. I aim to just code a bit, just to advance a bit in my projects and also to not lose my streak, but school and homework and tests, as annoying as they are, those are always the priorities. ;)
