I logged on to my .com hosted blog and I see that there is a little icon that is catching my attention. I like it, click it and it tells me: Happy anniversary. My initial reaction is a bit of confusion since I don’t recall an anniversary that is coming up. Or at least one that I should be worried about. My wedding was in April, my birthday the month after, SJ was born a month after that and nothing happens until November when it’s Jamie’s birthday.
I click the link and as it turns out I’ve had this blog for five years now. Crazy! Over the course of those years I have learned quite a bit. I am constantly learning new ways of doing things and I hope to never stop learning either. Reading has been a big thing and I haven’t done much of that the last few years. I’m not really sure as to why I haven’t read much but I plan on changing that. Recently I bought two books that I want to finish reading.
One is Code: The hidden language of Computer Hardware and Software and I am really liking the way it is both structured and reads. It really isn’t your typical computer science book and it doesn’t have a lot of images which is perfectly fine. What is does have, however, is a great detail for comparison and breaking things down. It quite literally dumbs things down without dumbing it down.
There was another book I saw that really caught my attention but will have to wait until I finish my current curriculum of books. This is going to be a great time for me since I am slowly getting the hang of how to time things a little better for reading and writing code.
Now if I could only pause life for about an hour a day that would be amazing!
