Illustration of an unhappy stick figure with curly hair.

person (thinking): NOTHING I try is helping, this is IMPOSSIBLE

person (thinking): wait… nothing I try is changing anything…. is my code even being run????

If my changes have no effect at all, often it means I’ve made a silly mistake (like forgetting to restart the app) and my changes aren’t being run!

I like to check that my code is being run by printing something out (like print("asdf"). Or, if that’s not possible, I’ll introduce an error so that it crashes.
