πŸ¦„ Alexa πŸ‘Ύ  ⌨️ daily anecdotes of a 22y/o software engineer. πŸ–₯ ⌨️ moonshot enthusiast. πŸŒ™ ⌨️ can't talk about work. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ ⌨️ will write code for πŸ₯‘. ⌨️ London, πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

Sunday C++ coding setup 🌿. Quote of the day: "diligence is the mother of good fortune" <--β€ΌοΈπŸ’―true. "You're so lucky!", they say. No, I'm consistently working my a** off, 200817.

Saturday mood πŸš€πŸ‘Ύ. Now that I can't post about where I work, what I do and what and how I code...what to do with @thecodeness πŸ‘ˆπŸΌ? Meanwhile I'm also learning C++ (for real and finally) and somebody dropped the "SDD" (seg fault driven development) word this week, and it is everything πŸ˜‚, 190817.

In my happy place, with a really good issue of @wireduk reading about @amazon and some liquid fuel β˜•οΈ. Can't believe I'm starting my new job tomorrow, after almost a year of signing the starting contract! f*#%!! 😱😱😱, 130817.

From my "everything" notebook πŸ““ (these are the key parts of something I once found on medium, link in story) don't be lazy, read the damn caption.
Life is like Tetris not chess.
1 In life, your only opponent is yourself. In Tetris you’re only playing against time and the never ending flow of pieces from top to bottom. The real game of life is completely internal…your score can increase to infinity if you just push yourself harder.

2 The only way to master life β€” like Tetris β€” is to learn to play with the same self-control at the highest speeds.

3 In life, you cannot control the board. In Tetris you only know what the next piece is. YOU PLAY FOR THE PRESENT MOMENT, trying to construct the best possible outcome.
Photo because I can't believe I dyed my hair brown for two years because it made me feel more "accepted" in the programming/computer science community (based on the comments I received about being blonde in the past). Thoughts now? IDGAF, 050817.

9 more days and I'm going back to WERK WERK WERK πŸ“ˆπŸ–‡πŸ“Š and CODE CODE CODE, SO PUMPED to smash the last few months of 2017 having bounced back from a hellish lifestyle. I'm super armed and ready for the next coding chapter, but in the meantime can we take a moment and appreciate how beautiful Cyprus πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ύ is (my home away from home away from home), 030817 πŸ¦„.

At my grandparents house in what is lovingly known as "Block 45" in Serbia eating a raw "ljuta paprika" which is a hot 🌢 and a classic accompaniment to any meal (or you don't even need a meal because Serbians are hardcore). I literally grew up in this house, eating my way through the kitchen and playing silent hill on my PlayStation 1 with my brother. The best memories πŸ’, 270717.

Bought two EPIC books πŸ“š this weekend "Robot Ethics" and "The Technological Singularity" (pictured). If you are in the London πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§area GO to the robots πŸ€– exhibition at the science museum (i.e the thing I spammed my story with), it's epic (and so is the gift shop). Meanwhile I should be packing because I'm traveling ✈️ tomorrow but ok, 240717.

Spent like a good 7 hours β˜•οΈ at @wework helping a friend with his electron app MVP and trying to group, render and move SVG elements in a non shitty way (which is harder that we thought and also me and web tech is a special relationship πŸ’»). Side (if anyone is reading this far) question of then day: what are your biggest pain points with Git and Git clients (any input appreciated) πŸ’» 200717.

SO MUCH TO DO, SO LITTLE LIFE TIME (in a non-stressed, excited for life kind of way) - I feel like I have done a full 360 in the last 2 months, from "find-yourself-traveling" to "let-me-just-die-here-sleeping-burnout" and back to "kill-them-with-entrepreneurship-avocado-fitness-and-meditation-worshiping" only to again realize that the only way to get it ALL done and not to stagnate is to be a human machine πŸ€–so... am I going to make the same errors again or was this was my "success formula" all along? STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. Although, jokes aside I've learned a lot about how I'm going to avoid total collapse again, so I think iteration 2 will be much better. Nonetheless, when you think about it, you're supposed to mediate, eat well, go to the gym, read books, stay up to date with new tech, read articles, kill it at work, socialize, sleep for at least 8 hours, drink water, enjoy a hobby, keep learning, maintain a relationship, walk...the list goes on! I else to do all this but with a rigorous formula for life? 180717 (edit: if I die prematurely I'm going to be really pissed off).

"The candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long" - I sure learned that lesson the hard way. However, post burnout and taking the time to do simple things like breathe, sleep, eat, socialize and exercise has worked miracles! So ready to work, get on top of C++ and tackle some serious personal projects, 130717. πŸ’»βš‘οΈβ˜•οΈπŸ‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈ(edit: hang tight, I will reply to DMs at some point)

Workspace for today πŸ’»β˜•οΈ, 070717.

I wasn't kidding when I said I'd make a workstation out of FedEx boxes...just moving problems πŸ“¦πŸ“¦ (I know, where do I put my legs, no idea, I'm literally taking each day as it comes). This girl can't wait on IKEA to start working/coding, 030717 πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ”₯.
