[ DAY 134 ] Well, I still don’t know who you are

Update on my trying to authenticate user identification on my project: nothing happened. I tried but kept running into dead-ends. But I learned something pretty cool. There’s this thing called cookie. If you have been around since the dawn of the Internet age, you probably have experienced the annoying feeling when a little pop-up stopped …

[ DAY 133 ] Who are you? Please log in

To-do: Finish sign up page, log in page with full functions such as checking inputs in both client-side and server-side, using passportjs to authenticate users, securing passwords with bcrypt. Remember to: finish water bottle of 1.5L, stand up every hour for 2 minutes, and not be too harsh on myself if my eyes or my …

[ DAY 132 ] Edit and search functions: checked

[ DAY 128 ] How long does it take to form a habit?

Well, certainly not 21 days like everyone says. I learned that habits people want to own such as waking up early or meditating or reading a number of books per year are not one-size-fits-all. It varies from people to people, and choosing the habits that suit us is as important as sticking to the habits …

[ DAY 127 ] Another day of learning

What I learned/try to understand today: Async and API. And it’s actually really fun! Except for when it’s not. I still cannot really explain these terms to people who are not familiar with JS or coding concepts in general though, especially in Vietnamese, but it’s getting there. Angular still makes me shiver lol. But I …
