Routines

Those dreaded, awful, crappy, abhorrent routines which everyone on the planet Earth and nearby space hates. Actually they help me to stay sane and I miss them when chaos arrives. I don't think most people suspect that I might be autistic unless they get really close to me. I can hold eye contact, if we…

PSA: Self-care is important

This is a completely non-technical post. If you are like me you strive to be better than you were the days before. Sometimes you ignore your body when it's telling you to slow down or change pace. Stop, you have only one body. It's 2017, not 2030 and this isn't Ghost In The Shell universe[1.…

Sometimes momentum doesn’t happen

Building a momentum is a thing which I heard way too often and as I grow older I struggle with it more and more. Because what if you try again and again and nothing happens? What if not all of us are predisposed to be marathoners?I think about this a lot and I am coming…

Underestimating the topic

Writing is hard. Writing is hard when you have to do a lot of research and writing is also hard when you want to write about your own experiences. Why did I thought that it'll be easy to write Friday's post which I didn't finish yet? Luckily I am not a professional writer and I…

Topic problems

For today's post I had problems finding a topic which I could execute. Not that I don't have enough topics on my list of topics. There are more than plenty of them there. But life comes and messes things up. I have plenty of coding topics which on a normal-ish day I could write, make…

Getting wiser, dev-wise

Almost a decade ago when I was getting into real-er programming, read Java, I thought that the best practices how to write code are overrated. I could understand my very long functions. I had no reason why to comment because a lot of my code didn't last long. I admit I was cocky when I…

CSS learning games

Games are bane of my ADD/ASD existence. I love them and hate them at the same time because my brain uses them to run away and sometimes forces me to fall into an addiction-like states. Fortunately there are also good games which force you to practice CSS. On Sunday Amber Weinberg tweeted: Love this fun…

Why am I learning C again?

When Udemy was giving discounts I bought a¬†C language¬†course. Why the frozen hell as a front-end developer I would want to do that? Isn't JavaScript enough? No, JavaScript isn't enough if I want to get better as a developer. Let's face it if code looks like C it is most likely compiled as C and…

I can’t do x-days long challenges

100 days of something, 365 days of something else, Inktobers, Vlogtobers, NaNoWriMo. I tried couple of them in last ten years. And failed miserably every single time. I can't say that I failed at them because I didn't tried enough. I failed because my brain wiring isn't just a little bit different. It's very different…
