I am loving this week’s topic.
So many people see their alternate profession as simply following passion and becoming an artist.
The art of teaching, or making food, or producing music, or making things, and so on..
We are so different in our artistic capabilities yet so similar in our professions.
Divided by lakhs of factors, united by love for ranting.
Let the passions not die out!
My office Mac has ruined the development experience for my personal Windows.
Mac is just so freaking good.7
I took 9 days off. Two 3-days long-weekends included.
First long-weekend went in Holi celeberations.
Weekdays went in planning and executing trip to Vaishno Devi.
Second long-weekend went in resting because Vaishno Devi is a hiking pilgrimage of a total of 30+ kms and 650+ kms away from my house. Totally loved the trip, though. Always a pleasure.
After 9 days of leaves, I come back feeling somewhat mentally fresh and rested.
The very next day, I catch cold and fever. Whole body fucked up. Skull paining from sneezing and blowing nose too much. Body paining from weakness and little fever.
Now.. I don’t want to work at all. Even little work gives me stress. Even though I have time to complete it.
I mean 😪
What an unnecessary hell after 9 days of heaven.2
~ I knew a little bit of Django ~
~ Now I know a little bit more ~
~ I used to like Python ~
~ Not so anymore ~
~ Why though ~
~ I don’t know ~
I use JS professionally and I have majorly coded in JS in personal projects but I always had this liking towards Python. Now, that feeling is gone. Python doesn’t seem that attractive. JS seems better.
One of the reasons, I feel, is the syntax. JS can fuck-up in places but that C-style syntax is love.
Another reason could be that I still don’t know that much Python or Django to make an opinion? Maybe. Probably.9
Every textual communication’s tone sounds rude to me. I don’t know why. It is what it is.
I always feel like the other person is being sarcastic or rude. When, infact, they actually are not.
Just.. *tired emoji*4
Just realised that I haven’t properly laughed in a long long while.
Don’t even remember the last time I laughed.
Don’t remember the number of times I have laughed since starting my corporate life.8
I was logged into a portal with my colleague’s ID. She asked me if I was logged in with her ID.
So, I asked her if she was unable to login:
Me: Are you able to login?
She: Are you able to login?
Like, what was the point of her reply?!
Me, again: Are you able to login?
EASY, WASN’T IT?!7
Can you feel nostalgic for the things you have done only in dreams?
I did today.
Fuck my loneliness.3
Privacy vs Freedom
What will you choose and why?
(I know, I know, it depends on situation/context. Still choose one.)15
Why can’t Headphone Safety in iPhone just fucking respect the Type of my Bluetooth Device?!
Why the fuck does it HAVE to reduce the sound of my Bluetooth speaker even though the Device Type is set as fucking speaker!!
Do whatever the fuck with “accurate measurements” of audio levels but just don’t fucking treat my headphones and speaker as same when I explicitly set them differently!
For Andromeda’s sake!10
I wrote a piece of code. A logic. My senior changed it. And.. I am glad she did.
My descriptive variables and her conditional breakup of logic made up for a very beautiful piece of code. Simple and elegant. So much so that it makes total sense without any need of a comment.
Never thought I would be loving a 5-lines code piece this much.
This is one of those days when collaboration happens for the betterment.
If all the 24 years of my life have taught me anything, it’s that I am not at all good at time management.
That’s why I am always stressed. And I hate that I just can’t seem to make it better. Short motivational bursts are good, but I need a permanent solution!4
I am surprised how little time does my brain take to go from
“As a dev, what am I doing for the betterment of the world?”
“But, what’s the meaning of life, though?”4
iPhone > Settings > [bluetooth-speaker] > Device Type > “Speaker”
Because “Specifying the type of device can ensure your Headphone Audio Level measurements are accurate.”
Alright, fair enough.
Headphone Safety doesn’t fucking care for the chosen device type. It still reduces the sound if turned ON.
It’s good that I can have accurate measurements but what the fuck is this bullshit?!
If you can accurately measure the audio by respecting the device types, why the fuck can Headphone Safety not respect the same types? Why the fuck does it have to treat every bluetooth device as a headphone?
Is this actual bullshit or am I missing something?3
