[ DAY 142 ] Below, at, or above my limits

spotted on my run My goal today was running 3 miles, so that’s why I had 4.8 km instead of 5 km. I realized this after I finished my run, and I regretted not continue the last 0.2 km. That’s what ignorance of the conversion between kilometer and mile causes me LOL. I don’t feel …

[ DAY 141 ] Where are my cookies? I’m hungry

“Once you had your JWT token saved to the browser’s cookie, your requests to the server will automatically include that cookie in the headers.” So I really believed the only thing I needed to do, which apparently sounds really challenging, was attaching my token to the cookie, and the browser would take care of the …

[ DAY 140 ] Shhh let’s keep silent

Drawn by me When we were still living together, there were many times when my roommate Ariel surrounded herself with complete silence, perhaps while cleaning her room or cooking.

[ DAY 137 ] Can you feel it?

“You have to feel the car,” said my driving teacher. “You have to feel the scene and follow what you imagined,” said my drawing teacher. You have to feel it.all the teachers who weren’t really helping I was a few days/weeks into doing something new, learning, so everything was fresh to my mind and muscles. …

[ DAY 136 ] Do you think a lot like I do?

Do I think too much? About sending data between client-side and server-side and when to validate input or requests and responses? Do I think too much? About how my code can get more concise and more readable at the same time? I do, but I also understand that sometimes I just need to keep going, …

College wasn’t easy for me, but I didn’t feel like giving up, so I didn’t

During my first three months in America, I couldn’t remember the particular time when I felt happy. Even though I met many wonderful people – my host moms who were knowledgeable and humorous and caring, my teachers who were always helpful and accustomed to praising the good work, and my few friends who always greeted …
