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 learning how to code and training physically.

On the coding side, I have learned enough HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and MySQL to rebuild the blog you are currently reading; and currently, I am working on a few ecommerce projects as well as spending time to learn JavaScript at a deeper level.

On the training front, I have mostly been doing sustainment work to keep my pre-pandemic strength levels while focusing on achieving a solid handstand. As of August 21, I was able to achieve a (shaky) 10s handstand; and currently, I'm working on strength and mobility conditioning to achieve a 60s handstand.

What else am I up to?

Meditating and journaling. One of the most helpful courses I took earlier this year 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 over a 4 month 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.
