What am I up to right now?

Where is home currently?

SF Bay Area.

Taking a break from subielife and currently back in the bay! I plan to stay here for the foreseeable future as the pandemic plays out.

What am I working on?

Becoming a {dev}athlete.

Over the past months, I've been splitting my time 50-50 between coding and training calisthenics.

On the coding side, after finishing my first non-personal project (an ecommerce website for a friend's bakery), I moved on to rebuilding this blog from scratch using Flask, PostgreSQL, and TypeScript. Recently, I've learned the D3.js library and also built my own Buy Me a Coffee page using Stripe; currently, I'm playing around with frontend frameworks (Vue/Svelte).

On the training front, I've switched my focus to achieving calisthenics skills as my number one goal. Specifically, I am working on improving my one-arm pull-ups and front lever, while trying to unlock the straddle planche and handstand push-up.

What else am I up to?

Meditating and journaling.

One of the most helpful courses I took back in early 2020 was The Art of Self-Coaching by Ed Batista (an executive coach and teacher at Stanford University). One of my biggest takeaways from the course was the benefits of having a regular meditation and journaling practice. Since completing the course, I have been on a streak of daily meditation and journaling. I have found the practice immensely calming and intend to keep it up for the rest of my life.
