Code Sunday

March 15, 2020

Imagine a sunday defined by the codes and bugs you encountered.

Today was a Sunday. Considering that the day isn’t over yet means I can’t use was. Instead, I’m to use, is.

A few things always bothers me

  1. Mediocrity
  2. Not doing anything different
  3. Being normal
  4. Doing what someone has already done

Not like overcoming these is easy. The lessons I learned from the book, Steal like an artist by Austin Kleon proves that nothing is original. Your ability to mix and match shows your originality.

I’m not totally sure of this, but I’d say it anyway: Many people want to be different, but just a few try to attain originality. Prolly because of fear. Referencing Steal like an artist, Austin made it clear that all you have to do is copy ideas from different sources and fields.

I’ve been wondering how to merge art and code. I feel code is used to generate highly structured art, not flexible, creative art.

From what I’ve learned so far in 2020, everything is learnable. Genesys rams that in to every intern’s head. Everything being learnable means I can learn creative art. I have to learn it for 10,000 hours to be a master 😬. Starting out is important.

So, that’s my summary of thoughts for the 15th of March 2020. Feel free to contact me with the link below (on your mobile device).
