Ok, let’s just get into it!

The Refuge

Why did you get a blog?

I really like helping others, and I have had many people ask me what I’m working on when it comes to side-projects. I also needed a place to sink a lot of my time in and an excuse to procrastinate. Hence the inspiration for the name of this blog. And since all these things blended together in a blog, I thought it would be best to just quickly make one! And boy, was it quick. Thank god for static site generators!

What will you write in here?

I will write about anything on this blog, with one condition: if it’s something I’m doing to avoid doing anything else.

That is, of course, a joke. In reality, I simply enjoy doing too many things and just have too little time. Therefore, every once in a while, I put off other things to try something new, and from there stems my “procrastination”.

How often will you post?

Honestly, I don’t think I’ll have a legitimate schedule, which is why I recommend you subscribe to my RSS feed to find out when I publish something new on my blog. If you don’t know what they are, they’re a pretty old, but awesome piece of tech - check out a small introduction here.

What if I have some questions to ask you?

I’m thinking of integrating comments in this blog, but I’ll see when I get the time. Until then, just contact me directly one way or the other.

Stuff about me

How did you start getting into computer science?

I honestly don’t really remember, computers have been a part of my life ever since I was like 5. I guess you could chalk it up to “love by proximity and time”.

I will concede, however, that my oldest documented occurrence with computer science is the creation of my GitHub account, which directly coincided with the start of my serious work in computer science.

What are your favorite programming languages?

My favorite languages are numerous, but my absolute favorites and most used are:

  • C++
  • Go
  • Python
  • Java
  • Rust

I’m thinking about adding Haskell to that list, but I don’t know about that just yet.

What are your favorite things to do in your free time?

There are a few things up there on my list:

  • spend time on my side-projects (that was pretty obvious, look at the blog)
  • listen to music and podcasts
  • browse Reddit and Hacker News, and occasionally read (that’s new!)
  • filming skits with my friends
  • filming stuff with my drone (his name is Batwing)
