Christmas was stressful this year, and I'm just really glad it's over. My win is being back in my apartment and waking up not-jet-lagged this morning!

Good to see a fellow Rustacean ...I am keen to get started as well. Had a few starts, but got stalled. Do you have any good plans on how to keep the learning going on a regular basis?

I think if you read my posts you'll get a good idea of my current level and how I'm doing it... I think the trick is incremental steps and start from the basics to build up to higher concepts

When my sisters and I were children, we would convene at the end of the school day and share what we had learned. These discussions were fun and exciting, especially since knowledge is so novel when you're a child. Eventually, a teacher was very unhappy that we were discussing what we learned because the teacher considered this to be "cheating". As a child, I internalized this negative opinion and, for a long time, the teacher's opinion discouraged me from discussing new things I had learned to my sisters and other people.

Skip to many years later and I am an adult now! My sister was visiting for the holidays and we discussed technical concepts that we knew about.

My win this week was quieting the judgemental internalized voice and fear I had about sharing what I learn!

Getting some time to take care of myself. I've made an entire health check-up. And everything is alright with me. Only recommendation that I received from doctor, is making more exercise (gym, or outside).
And started therapy sessions, to fight against anxiety. :)

My OSS project 1) surpassed 300 Stars on GitHub AND 2) Was accepted into homebrew core and is now easily installable for Mac users!

Brew support is especially awesome because:

  • An official brew maintainer found my project from my launch post on HN and helped get the brew formula designed and submitted.

  • The project name is run and the word "run" was one of small list of reserved words for brew, so we needed to also get a PR approved to remove the word from the reserved word list.

  • This is the first package-manager integration for my project - Hopefully others will come soon.

Overall I'm stoked with how well my project has been received and hope brew support will enable more people to give it a try and offer feedback on how to make it even better.

I played with the Dev API and answered some of my burning questions about the tags I mod. It was fun and the docs on the API are great

Even though it was a long way of making it into the top 7 for the previous week, my article on shaming and blaming got me a whole bunch of new followers. Super cool! Simme is currently one very grateful camper ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

My most recent article on dealing with rejection is also doing above my expectations and was even tweeted by @ThePragmaticDev account! I love this platform!

Well actually I published a Vue cheat sheet and wouldn't think it could gather this amount of reaction and also I wrote a post about what to learn in 2020 as a web developer which passed 10k view and now I have over 1k followers. This week was one of the best weeks for me on
