  • Setting up a Mac (with command line tools)

    It’s probably my 10th or 20th time setting up a computer and each time I start this process, I think to myself that I should be writing it all down so next time it’s easier for me and maybe it will get other some ideas on possible things they should check out. I’ll start with […]

  • After years, I bought a personal MacBook

    The last time I bought a macbook was in 2010. It was a 13″ Macbook Pro at the base specs. It was great, lasted me a couple of years and then I passed it on to a friend. Last month, I decided to order a new macbook, the ones with M1 chips. I got a […]

  • Connecting a relationship using a hook in Keystone.js 6

    I’m writing this for the weary internet traveler because I spent 3 hours debugging this and finally had some coffee ☕️ and figured it out after running into a ton of errors. This is my desired outcome: every time a user signs up for my app, I want to associate the “Reader” role with that […]

  • Gardening my projects

    For a long time, I’ve attempted to work on side projects outside of work and I have either lost the motivation or strived to build something too big to keep the momentum going. This did result in some sort of a weird burnout feeling within me. I have often felt like a project with good […]

  • Summer 2021 projects

    The past few months have been a mix of productive and lazy days. Some days, I got up and was focused for most hours, got some work done and also some personal tasks done and others were a wash. But overall, I think the pandemic’s languishing feelings are starting to subside as I try to […]

  • TIL: null is an object in Javascript

    I’ve been in a lull about learning concepts related to programming and web development the past few months so yesterday when I got an email about Just Javascript, I signed up for the course to check out how it will be. So far, I’m running into pleasant surprises like how there are only nine data […]

  • Some digging into embedding comparable images

    I recently had an idea to compare two images side by side and ideally having a slider present to be able to see one more than the other. I wanted to get to a MVP of this but after spending a couple of hours, I decided to just jot down my notes about it so […]

  • Dull lull in July

    I’ve been going through a slow time in July and I haven’t been very active on my computer besides using it for work at work. At home, I’ve just been keeping away from the computer almost full-time. There is some good news because of this, I’ve started to spend more time reading, doodling, eating, and […]

  • Goodbye Bookends, for now

    Today, I’m stopping work on Bookends. In this post, I’d like to reflect on why I’m stopping work on it, what I’ve learned, and what’s next. Bookend’s purpose is to help track and discover books. So far, I don’t think I’ve solved this. What I’ve learned When I started the project, I had a simple […]

  • Serving Vue.js apps on Github Pages

    I wanted to share a pretty simple setup on how to serve a Vue.js app using Github Pages. I’m writing this because I had to search around online for awhile before I stumbled upon the Vue.js docs and then had to play with some settings in Github. For this exercise, I’ll use a sample project […]
