I'm writing this because my gf was adamant that it'll be helpful to me She's always telling me to document one thing or another,  trying to get me to write papers on specific topics. My normal stance on this is stubbornness. I usually don't like writing things down, usually prefer allowing my ideas -- besides for a select few -- to evaporate into the ether.

But I'm trying to be less stubborn. So I'm documenting this as a first step measure into trying out things that I'm against.

I'm not the typical coder. Not that I can write software better than the average coder, rather I write it worse. But I'm a normal human being. A normal human being who got sick of being told that software was this difficult thing relegated only to 'smart' people. So I started learning how to code at first with CodeAcademy. HTML/CSS lesson was the first one. I took this class many many years ago while my gf was on spring break. While everybody else was doing fun things, I spent the week writing HTML and CSS for the first time within CodeAcademy's interactive online code editor.

Since I'm not the typical coder, I'm able to see software for what it is. A tool and system applied to the real world to make the real world better. I think A lot of software people can't see this. They will say it, but it's though they're reading off a script. Like a bad actor.

    @abrahamKim Hahaha, I took that course too! The worst thing about coding is you have to keep up with it and to practice, which I should, but don't do ;/ I just keep buying domains I have ideas for. It's turrible.

    @abrahamKim - I agree with your girlfriend Sir Abe. You should document more and let Talia tell us her thoughts as well.

    I think being stubborn is a very abundant trait we all have. Some of us more than others. I am not a typical coder either but I feel it can be a mentally exhausting profession if you do it for too long.

      Stubbornness is very hard to conquer because it is that thing that we hold deeply within us, that thing that we think makes us. But in fact it's actually eating away at us.

      @abrahamKim @keni - in fact, don't give up your stubbornness. Just write about it. It's quite entertaining for us to witness you battling the wind.
