The fuck? This isn’t code…

I need to start writing. I miss blogging about code, but I’m starting to realize I’m not ahead of the curve as I would like. I’m stuck in a corporate environment and we can’t implement the latest and greatest (I’m the one actually telling our teams NOT to, for valid reasons). This leaves me with personal projects as a sandbox to tinker with new frameworks.

Learning about software development and writing code has been something I’ve been passionate about for many years. It’s something I’ve always wanted to learn more about and better understand. It’s become a large part of my persona. However, I’m realizing there’s more to me that I either 1) want to better understand, and 2) improve upon.

I’m in my mid-30s and realizing I don’t fully understand myself. Ever since my divorce, I’ve been (still) trying to figure out what my other passions are, what my pitfalls are (I have quite a few), and try to improve my self-image. I want to use this space as a journal for trying to be a better human.

Having a major life shift really shakes the tree and leaves you somewhat bare, causing you to grow new leaves to become full again.
