Oh My Zsh is a wrapper for Z shell that makes your terminal a delightful tool to work with.
My favorite features are the tab completion and tab cycling. I can rapidly traverse directories and files just by pressing Tab repeatedly.
The current situation with COVID-19 is rather severe. It has led to a period of serious self-reflection, especially for people like me who work in cushy tech jobs.
But since many of us are lucky people who can be stuck at home and be OK, we may as well spend this time productively and improve our skills.
At the end of the day, I believe in humanity’s tenacity and that we will survive this. So we need to prepare ourselves for a return to normalcy. …

This last year has been a phenomenal year for gaming. Since we’ve all quarantined, the video game industry saw an enormous boom in sales.
Since I also mostly stayed at home, I naturally picked some games up.
I make the excuse that I’m learning about game design as I play, but the truth is that I enjoy binging good games for hours and snacking on potato chips. Ah, I miss being a kid sometimes.
I’ve sunk my time into FF7 Remake, The Last of Us II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Cyberpunk 2077, among many…
Love takes the shape of its owner. Its quality reflects yours.
When you are whole, your love is whole. And when you are tainted, your love is tainted.
Only when you are complete can you freely give love to others.
As we all experience pain and trauma, our containers take damage. Some of us are leaking, but we don’t realize it.
Subsequently, we jump from person to person, from obligation to obligation, in vain because no matter how much love we drain from others, nobody can ever fill us.
But there’s good news — although we are like plastic containers…
Believe it or not, I used to hate coffee. I thought it was bitter and nasty.
I thought the coffee my dad drank, which usually had cream and sugar, was just Liquid Gross. And I was even more disgusted by straight black coffee, which some of my friends consumed. If you told me it was watered-down tar, I would’ve believed you.
But that was well over eight years ago.

“Yes” people get all the glory. From self-help books to TV shows to fantastic literature and movies — all of the emphasis is on visionaries.
The ones who said “yes.”
The ones who took the opportunity.
The ones who dared to take a chance.
Conversely, mainstream media portrays “No” people in a negative light. They’re risk-averse. They’re cynical and critical. They avoid taking chances and are resistant to change.
And to some degree, the negativity is right. …

Yes, most of us are grateful for the obvious things. Family and friends. Good food. Unique experiences. Maybe some possessions or belongings.
But here is a list of things that we often take for granted because they’re out of sight and out of mind. After all, we’re all susceptible to WYSIATI bias.
There are some outstanding documentaries about conflicts worldwide — what’s happening in Hong Kong, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Lebanon, Chile, etc.
I wake up every day, thankful that I am not in one of those places. And I wake up every day grateful…
The last time I was in a real relationship was five years ago. Maybe even a little longer.
Was this intentional? Not necessarily. It didn’t need to be five years. But I needed to figure out a few things before I could have a healthy relationship.
Midway through high school, I began dating a girl I had gotten to know through school activities. I wasn’t great at talking to girls and socializing. I was also ugly, so you could probably understand how ecstatic I was that someone actually liked me.
As teenagers do, we tried to feel our way through…

Ah yes — criticism. Everyone loves it, right?
A lot of people have no issues dishing it out. But their reactions when taking it are almost indistinguishable from having a colonoscopy.
Many avoid criticizing others when possible. But it’s not avoidable forever. Living a human life means interacting with others.
Here are some rules to make your life — and the recipient’s life — easier while you’re saying what needs to be said.
