Life has been beyond busy and bumpy. I’ve shared very few updates here because this account is mainly Computer Science related after all, and there hasn't been much time for computer science-ing lately. ⁣ ⁣ ➡️ But I wanted to take this as an opportunity to share a message I try to remind myself often. ⁣ . ⁣ ❗️"?? ??? ???? ?????? ??? ??????? ???? ????????. ?????? ??? ????????? ?? ???? ?? ?? ????? ??? ???? ???? ?? ???? ?? ???? ???? ???????."⁣ ⁣ & ⁣ ⁣ ❗️"??? ??? ????? ?? ??? ????? ???? ??? ????????????, ???? ?? ??? ???? ??? ?? ???? ????? ?????? ???"⁣ ⁣ For example: I haven't coded in a bit over a month. But I made huge advances towards my Computer Science Bachelor's Degree this week. ⁣ ⁣ Yesterday was the last day of the last class (Speech) I needed to get my Associate's degree and move on to the next phase of my studies. ⁣ ⁣ ⁉️This might be quite confusing for those of you that are not familiar with the US college system. But it basically means I am done with all the classes I needed to take that are NOT related to computer science. I am now ready to transfer schools and start with the juicy stuff. ⁣ ⁣ So, even though I haven't touched any code since my last hackathon, big things are happening for my career in programming. ⁣ ⁣ ➡️ I'm sure you have similar things you have to do. Maybe it's admin work for your business when you rather be designing, or meetings at work when you rather be coding. All these activities that we can't avoid make us feel like we're off our path and wasting time, when in fact, ????'?? ? ????????? ???? ??????? ??? ?????. Don't forget that the way I tend to do.
