    nice! what are you doing for the thesis project, if you can share?


    1. on books - thanks for the link! imma check these out :) i know the common advice is "just build something" - but the issue is...

    2. on tools - i can build stuff, like i know how to make/use react components, render 'em conditionally, i know how to use mongoose and make a working api with express

    but given that my focus was on building and not learning, there are still a lot of basics i've managed to skip over.

    like just recently i learned how to render components dynamically with .map()

    just today i learned that you can pass a setState function to a child component in order to access (for example) form data in a parent.

    i just started getting into css3 (read: animations) last week - and i haven't even touched on JS animations yet.

    right now i have a functional view of how things work - i want to have a fleshed-out, professional knowledge of how things work.

    1. css - thanks for the link! i'll check this out :)

    emotionally abusive ex-girlfriend tried to reach out.

    blocked her number.

    started looking for therapists.

    i started following through FreeCodeCamp (more tech talk (MERN) at the bottom - i gots questions)

    i started flossing two weeks ago.

    i've been consistent this past week with learning japanese

    and right now i got one of my comfy outfits on, chilling at the house, and i just made a french press with some beans from a roaster i used to always buy from back when i lived downtown.

    i'm feelin' alright today. it's gonna be a few more months until i get where i want, but for now, i'm good.

    how bout you - how you doin?


    (if you stuck around for the tech stuff - here's that)

    1. what's a good book to follow up EloquentJS? i'm reading through that now, and i really want to get a good feel for the language itself. i know how to get something built, but i don't know how my tools work - and that's an issue for me.

    2. on a similar note - what are the best books on React? i've got a 2017 copy of Fullstack React, but someone told me that's outdated by this point, and i can't exactly afford the 2018 copy right now. anything else i should keep an eye out/save up for?

    3. and lastly, best reading on CSS3? i know (again) a good enough amount of Bootstrap to be able to get something up and running, but i want to get better at vanillaCSS, css animations, and making sure that my site is responsive and supported across across all browsers.

    yo - so this just dropped maybe an hour ago, and it completely caught me off guard. 👀

    No Jumper just uploaded the track to their YouTube channel - and apparently it's producer has also done work with BONES from TeamSesh (one of two foundational emo rap collectives).

    and to add another good bit of confusion to the mix - seems like she's also done a track with Lil Xan. like where did this girl come from?

    i love this whole new metal wave of rap coming through - reminds me a lot of the late Annaouija linked - "Patrick's Revenge" ft. Pimpin Pat

    what are your thoughts?

    man is it sad that this is the article i sit all the way through hahaha

    so, so far, it's not too bad - but i think there's a few minor things being said here and there that just strike me thinking that the author isn't really all that attached to the scene.

    1. Juice WRLD is a "Post Post Malone" artist? we're nowhere near "post post malone" territory lmao. his album "beerbongs & bentleys" just dropped last year and hit 38/50 on Billboard's Top 50 Albums of 2018, and 23/50 on a similar list from Complex. not to mention his most recent single "Wow." just dropped in December and peaked at 8 on the Billboard charts.

    2. Lil Uzi Vert is an "emo rap curiosity"? i don't see how it makes sense to lay so much praise and hype on Juice (not that he doesn't deserve it though) while completely disregarding Uzi's breakthrough hit "XO Tour Llif3" which went RIAA 6x Platinum or "Bad and Boujee" - Migos ft. Lil Uzi Vert which topped at 7 and 1 on Billboard Hot 100 respectively - a year before Juice came onto the scene*

    3. "Lots of [SoundCloud rappers] are obsessed with using FaceTime." - like...what? 😂

    that said, outside of a few minor things like that - i think the article was a decent insight into some of the bigger names in the ring, highlighting Juice WRLD, Lil Pump, XXXTentacion, 6ix9ine, and (oddly enough) Matt Ox.

    for those unfamiliar with Matt - he's by far the youngest kid on the scene, having gotten his start when he was 12 years old with his debut track "Overwhelming".

    he'd grown from there to hop onto "$$$" x XXXTentacion ft. Matt Ox which has hit 19M plays on YouTube, and just dropped "Ride Around" which has hit just over 1M hits in the month since it's release

    hiiiiiii everybody guess who drunk for the first time this year ayeeeee

    we're back

    i love it

    i hate it

    i miss you

    how damned lazy

    is the poet

    who only ever writes.

    how wasted

    is the painter

    who drowns out his lines.

    how atrophied

    the pianist

    who cannot bend the light

    if this is art then it isn't mine.

    .

    a screw

    driver is useless

    when nails

    are the nuisance

    an easel

    is pointless

    with verbally

    mindless rhymes.

    .

    to what length in an artist?

    if you cannot wield

    every edge of the

    toolbox right?

    .

    not every thought

    is at best

    through emo

    writings expressed

    kid, sometimes

    you have to

    know your lines.

    .

    to better outline your problems.

    (better outline your problems)

    better sketch out your issues

    (guarantee she don't miss you)

    better sculpt out the tissue

    and try to attend to

    the shit you

    can only rhyme.

    .

    what a waste of an artist.

    .

    what a waste of an artist.

    .

    you call your poems cathartic

    but that's your only

    medium, right?

    .

    you wanna be a God

    you better step up

    better learn to

    do your makeup

    hopefully you learn

    to draw her thighs.

    .

    better off dead otherwise.

    .

    if you're not the greatest it's a guise.

    ich lebe noch von dir

    so if i won't be remembered

    then by your God

    i should prolly' die.

    .

    what the fuck is an artist.

    wjo is reallt an aritst.

    God

    put me at ease

    deliver me to peace.

    if you're above

    deliver me to love.

    there's not a sign

    you're months without a call.

    i begin to think

    you never cared at all.

    in winter breezes

    hang me from the trees.

    god i'm sick of

    never feeling enough.

    make me crease and

    break me at my knees.

    tarot prophet guide me

    with your crystal ball.

    .

    read the names i've

    written in my skin.

    banish me to walk

    alone in cold.

    hit my face and tell me

    this is it.

    kill me, say you

    never cared at all

    .

    screaming in your car

    you said you'd call the cops

    if i don't take my seatbelt off

    on our way home and walk.

    .

    screaming in our home

    you'd always slam the doors

    and leave the silence ringing

    in the halls

    .

    alone in dark i wailed

    you didn't care.

    as you sat there on your phone

    and talked and talked.

    .

    always acting like

    i wasn't there.

    even asked me to pretend

    that we were not.

    .

    remember back in college

    when you made some friends

    and tried to make me hide,

    not show me off?

    .

    tried to tell them

    i was just a friend.

    and when i protested

    god you told me off.

    .

    but when i made you mad

    how mad you went.

    and appeared inside my room

    without consent.

    .

    i walked in and found you there

    sat at my desk.

    it should've ended there

    but i regressed.

    .

    i said we would grow past it

    never did.

    always made me second guess

    the life i live.

    .

    it's not my fault

    that you stayed home alone.

    why do i slash and cry and pray

    that you'll pick up the phone.

    .

    tell me why i love you

    when it's wrong.

    .

    .

    .

    tell me why i want you

    when you're gone.

    .

    .

    .

    i want you to ignore me,

    miss my calls.

    .

    .

    .

    if at least you'll speak

    to me at all.

    fuck you.

    i'm sorry.

    i love you.

    fuck you.

    fuck you too.

    I've been treating ~creative as a combination of ~arts and ~diy and ~crafts: it's for anything that people have made themselves.

    with the addendum that it’s for anything people have made themselves. sure it could be argued that i “made the compilation”.

    in this logic, would discussion about passages in Dante’s Inferno also get moved to creative, because novels are creative pursuits?

    I'VE GOT

    red wine

    nicotine

    fresh chocolate chip cookies

    the plaid heated blanket that keeps me

    cuddled up in the recliner that doubles

    as my bed.

    I'VE GOT

    red wine

    daydreams

    moving to a different city with a different scene

    i wanna meet new friends,

    try codeine

    find love or find drugs to console me

    I'VE GOT

    red wine

    thin skin

    pink like your soft cheeks when they're sunkissed.

    haulover beach, you were naked

    on a trip,

    and you screamed, and you screamed, and i hate it.

    I'VE GOT

    red wine

    ain't shit

    except seven little boxes full of bullshit

    old love notes kissed with red lips

    seven boxes of evidence you didn't mean shit.

    I'VE GOT

    a lotta bit of lethargy

    all my energy drained.

    i remember the day where you looked at my eyes

    and you said "babe since you met me you don't look the same"

    you looked at the bags,

    (beat.)

    and you said "that was me"

    (beat.)

    and of course i dismissed it

    said babe don't be silly

    i envisioned us happy and said that "you make me complete."

    I'VE GOT

    red wine

    white lies.

    red wine.

    red wine.

    GOT.

    red wine

    no time.

    it's time.
