Fresher this side.

Refused to work for a web development company who exploited students to work for them for free as interns without any mentor.

Good for you! I also feel this this week. Is funny how just coming to a decision can be empowering, if (in my case) a little sad and scary.

I've enjoyed finishing my first street painting. It was a glorious experience form zero knowledge about drawing and painting to a satisfying and encouraging result.

Started diving deeper into JS frameworks and came to the conclusion that I enjoy working with Vue way more than React. Now I have a better idea on what to focus on 😁 Next step is to find someone willing to hire me at my current skill level!

Written this:

dev.to/gochev/dev-to-in-web-comics... and joined dev.to this week I think both count ? :)

No in reality, maybe the fact that the girl I am in love with told me that she is proud of me, because of a job opportunity I received, in fact I pass on it and even the fact that I received it was not that huge of a deal, her words were.

The tendinitis in my right Achilles is getting much better. I’ve been back at the gym (not doing everything) and it feels pretty good. Also, my swimming coach is awesome. She’s been helping me improve my technique week after week. Look out Mr. Phelps!

This week I took an Interview feedback. Since I didn't get the job, I'm really because due to the fact that I did my best when it comes to speaking on my second language (English).

This year I started with a goal of speaking fluently,so I did my best to teach myself English(Specially pronunciation) and facing an Interview all in English was such an incredible experience!

Pointed k8s.downey.dev at my toy Kubernetes cluster and was able to write this post with it!
