A simple reminder that I'm not going to be here forever and to appreciate what I have now:

00 years, 00 months, 00 days, 00 hours, 00 minutes & 00 seconds until I kick the bucket.

Turned 32

A couple of days ago I celebrated my 32nd birthday, which officially makes me old. Just kidding, I'm grateful to have turned 32 and I'm looking forward to celebrating more birthdays with the people that I love.


I recently purchased a one month bouldering membership with my partner. We've been making the most of it and have gone climbing 2-3 times per week. It has been fun and I'm hoping we'll renew it to a yearly membership once our current one is done.

wrapping my head around backend programming

I thought I'd make the most of my semester by learning how backend works. More specifically, Node.js and MongoDB. Now that I have more experience with front end and have built a few websites/apps, I thought it would be good for me to get to grips with what goes on the other side.
