Hello World and Welcome to my new Blog!

2 min read


Hey, how's it going? I hope you're doing well, I'm doing just fine too, thanks for asking. On the day I'm writing this, I'm 10 days away from turning 21 years old. That's crazy. 21. That pretty much means I'm considered an adult everywhere I go. I highly doubt I'm ready for that kind of responsibility, but hey, I thought I might as well start writing a bit more and make this blog to share various things I've learned along the way.

I've also wanted to start something like this again ever since I took down my last blog, Learn Happy. My mistake with Learn Happy was that I put way too much stuff on the site for no good reason (8 different post categories, separate pages for book and product reccomendations, mailing list, etc) and it became overwhelming to try and maintain as a side project. I don't want that type of clutter again. As a result, I decided to make this website much simpler (using React.js and Next.js in case you're interested in the technical details).

I'm a software developer so a lot of what I write on this website will be technical in nature (think deepdives on Git, setting up and configuring Vim/NeoVim, project showcases, learning web development, etc), but I also want to share a number of things about my career and in general, life; hence, every post will have 1 of these 3 tags associated with it and you can filter the posts by these tags to find whatever interests you. Anyways, there's not much else left to say so I'll leave you with a javascript code snippet that highlights how software engineers like myself usually try and get work done (p.s Gruvbox is the best code theme of all-time and if you think otherwise you are wrong):

while (new Date().getHours() <= 17) {
  if (gotSomethingToDo()) {
    pressSomeKeys(['Ctrl+c', 'Ctrl+v']);
  haveABreak({ duration: 'As long as possible' });
  eatASnack({ amount: 'As much as possible' };
Thanks for reading and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
