While I wrote that title I heard the voice of my training app in my head… so that’s fun.
This month I’ve been doing more than normal and I honestly have no clue how I’m balancing it all. Last night I relaxed and watched Idiocracy and After and blogged a bit, neither took a ton of concentration which was exactly what I needed.
I never officially announced it but I am doing blogtober which is publishing a blog post a day. I don’t know exactly how it started but I decided October 1st that maybe I want to. I decided to do it pretty low key, if I don’t post then I don’t post but at least I’m posting more than normal.
But it’s also me and I don’t like going halfway so I decided to actually do it. There were a couple times my posts didn’t go up until nighttime but I’m doing it and it’s pretty easy.
A part of me is thinking I should do National Blog Posting month and Blogmas. Just post every day for three months straight.
I am also participating in Hacktoberfest. Basically, I have to do four pull requests (requesting to merge changes into some open source code) this month. My plan was to do one the first couple days and then one each Saturday. Basically I’m one behind where I was planning to be at.
First Pull Request:
Second Pull Request:
I had a goal to do something in C++ and since I’m just learning I decided to do one that was a HackerRank problem. I didn’t want people to just be able to copy the answer blindly so I also added in a couple comments about why the answer is what it is and why it isn’t as straightforward as I thought it’d be. I did one on a for loop and one on pointers.
I had only done pointers and then I was looking at PRs other people have put in and someone else had already done that. So note to myself (and others): LOOK AT THE PENDING PRs.
How’s your month going? Have you accomplished any goals?
