Kicking It Old School – IRC with Irssi

Lately I’ve been on this kick of going back to the days before social media. Partly because of my break from live streaming, discord and Instagram, and partly because I still like the old school way of doing things sometimes – the early 2000’s were my peak IRC chat/linux days, so it left me feeling […]

Learn React with Me

In the web development world, I need to tackle the beast that is named React.js. I feel like I’ve been severely limiting my resume and career potential because I’ve avoided really digging my claws into this. What am I afraid of? Nothing. That’s what. Nothin’. If you’re also learning React, come join me will ya? […]

Taking a Break

A lot has been going on in my mind lately that I can only describe as “chatter” in my brain. I’ve been feeling this pull to stay away from distractions online for the past couple of days, so I’m finally listening to that part of my brain and working on not looking at my phone […]

Trying New Things: Global Game Jam

This weekend is the Global Game Jam at Microsoft NYC and my former colleague convinced me to join him and friends to be on a team. It’s a great way to hold myself accountable to learn game development that I’ve mentioned in a previous post. I’m really excited to see how to plan it all: […]

New York Comic Con; My First Cosplay

In my spare time I very occasionally play Overwatch on PC, and my favorite character is someone I’d love to be if I was ever a video game character – Sombra (which means “shadow” in Spanish) a stealthy hacker who manipulates those in power. Ok, maybe I don’t want to manipulate anyone or cause terror, […]
