- Sunday, 10/01/2023 ** 09:20 Coding for fun makes my work stronger and my life better. Finally picking up the personal projects I've procrastinated on for so long - no more bullshit, just cutting to the chase and learning NextJS, modern React, etc. properly outside of work. Building that compiler for a website.
Making more increases momentum; we learned that from taking photos. Doing more means you'll continue to do more and more and more and more until you've mastered it. ** 09:24 No days off again. Even if on vacation, even if sick - write some code. Go to the gym - or at least get outside. Take some photos. Don't allow yourself to reset and become afraid of those activities. ** 09:56 Overlay to give information about a page if I've seen it before, things I've written, things I've logged... like what if hypothes.is was on all websites, a superset of it. ** 21:03 https://archive.ph/SixJv#selection-2129.0-2133.185
It's strange to fill my head with these stories of grit, of character, of tough experiences because I don't think I've had any. My whole life has felt a bit structured, a bit planned, and I'm not quite sure how to make it out of there. I don't want anything but friends and excitement; I have everything else I could want. Maybe I have to master consistency before I get a bit more dysfunctional. ** 21:09 Writing, taking photos, writing code, using computers, posting on social media, saving inspiration, cooking, dressing yourself, etc... these are 'democratic' hobbies - everyone has to do them to live life today - but for some people these skills are careers, and whether the skill becomes a career speaks more to your business acumen than your skill with the activity itself. Career or not, becoming good at things that everyone has to do every day is beautiful.
All of my tools are black or silver or white. Why? ** 21:12 Maybe my next - my 'first' - essay should be about learning the basics, the mundane, the beautiful, mastering it. Things that everyone needs or does.
