I believe in continued education and realise the value of being self-sufficient instead relying on people around us (no matter how much skilful they are in comparison).
So my little cousin (who has ambitions to be a programmer) and I took a short four hours WordPress/basic programming class with David Wang. Here’s a list of things I’ve learned that are helpful for maintaining my sites:
1. To maintain a website, you need to constantly update:
That’ll prevent hacking (hopefully).
2. Html comment
* <! – – Hi There – – >
I was told that I shouldn’t play with html because one small mistake can ruin the whole thing. Solution: always jot down the changes I made within it using Html comment!
3. Check code
Command + Option + I = go to inspector
Command + Option + OPTION + U = go to source itself
Shortcuts to check things like the sizing of the fonts on my site, so I can preview it and make changes.
“Every day, your body requires energy to survive, to think, to do well, to be happy. You don’t get infinite energy. One way to replenish energy is to sleep. The other way is to eat well and exercise. But another way to replenish energy is to live a gentle life. As gently as possible. Which means all negotiation need to be smooth else they result in anxiety and fear and guessing…future depletion of energy. And then you die faster than the one who lived gently. Try this. Next time you are in a negotiation, don’t forget to relax your face”

Doings things gives me adrenaline rush, which in turns makes me want to do more – it’s almost like a drug. But time is always a limiting factor; so even my leisure time has turned productive (?!). What do I do on Instagram? Learn Japanese from Gudetama, my favourite lazy egg.
What I’ve learned:
yaruki (やる気) = motivation
yarukinai (やる気ない) = demotivated
気 = Qi
Minna o machikane = Everyone waited
Kyushoku (給食) = school lunch
Jikan de ichi su (時間で一す) = It is time
Minna o machi kane kyushoku no jikan de ichi su (みんなおまちかね給食の時間で一す = Everyone, it is time for school lunch everyone’s been waiting for (?)
