Initiating Launch Sequence 🚀

Hi and welcome to my blog!
Two years ago, I embarked on a journey into the unknown. My job was pretty cool; I was making YouTube videos, and freelancing in design at the same time. That being said, the amount of things that had to be juggled to make it work was just insane, and on top of it I wanted to learn Spanish, and get fit, and work on a bunch of other skills. I realized that it was not humanly possible to focus on everything, but that gave me an idea! What if the solution to my problem wasn’t human?
Fast forward a year, and I’m working for an amazing ed-tech company and writing my first lines of Java on the side. When I opened Android Studio for the first time, I was completely overwhelmed by what seemed like a jungle of buttons and menus, and I remember thinking:
“I have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m going to make it work anyway!”
And somehow… I did!
Move the clock ahead to 2017, and I have a working Android app that I use every single day. It’s far from perfect, but that’s not the point. It works, and for someone who’s completely self-taught in all things computer science, that’s a hell of an accomplishment!
Despite all this, I still have no idea what I’m doing, so that’s where this blog comes in. From the mundane, like finding ways to save money on laundry, to the downright terrifying, like launching my app, every day I run into some new thing that I’ve never done before, and I think it’s going to be fun to document it. Lets try for something new here every week 😉
My adventures in figuring shit out are just beginning, and I’d love to have you along for the ride!
