Spring 2013 Start

Posted January 14, 2013

I’ve had one of the most productive winter breaks in quite some time, but the Spring 2013 semester starts today. 13 credit hours and a part-time job should be enough to keep me busy.

Last week, I took the time to rethink about the purpose of my website. I want it to focus more on my projects and works, so I rearranged it all to better suit that need. The blog isn’t going to be the main focus anymore. I don’t write much, so any new writings will probably be quick and straight to the point. Most of my random ramblings these days are done on my Twitter anyways. Crazy to think that a platform that I once considered insignificant is now the core repository of my random thoughts.

I went on ahead an published the SuperBAD demo a couple of days back and fixed a few bugs soon after. The app should be fully functional now and should do a decent job of keeping you entertained for at least two minutes. With the semester starting and the imminent course load ahead, my spare time to develop apps will be limited. Regardless, I’m gonna start on a new app and try to work on it during the course of the semester. I already have a name and a logo created, so I hope that I can go far with it. Ideas are pouring in, but it takes time to make them a reality.

Aside from schoolwork, I have a goal that I want to focus on this semester. I want to be a better programmer. Up until recently, coding has always felt more like a chore. It’s not that coding is difficult (which it still is!), but it sometimes felt boring and frustrating. It might have something to do with getting homework assignments done and stuff. In the past, whenever I had to do assignments, I would ask and tell myself “Do I really have to do this? I don’t want to do this.” I don’t want to say that anymore. I just want to say “LET’S DO THIS” and get stuff done. I’m going to focus more on loving what I do, and I believe I can do it this semester.
