Why I'm writing
I hate writing.
It's one of the things that I didn't enjoy about college.
Weekly 500 word essays. Mid-term papers. Finals paper.
And the list goes on.
I hated all of them.
Writing was something that I dreaded doing for the 4(+1) years I was in college. I would rather write hundreds of lines of code than write an in-depth analysis of Frankenstein's monster.
Writing isn't something that I can do and get lost in it. Coding does.
Even if I get stuck on a problem that I cannot solve, I wouldn't quit. I'll go at it the whole day until I solve it. If I don't, I'll leave it for now and do it again tomorrow.
With writing, it's a different story. I would really have to force myself to sit down and write. Days before the deadline.
If there was a way to avoid writing, I would do it.
Two years later...
I still hate writing.
But reality hits you like a ton of bricks.
Writing is huge part of what I do every day. Whether that's writing emails, website copy and even opening up Github issues, I have to write.
Being able to write well and explain my thoughts is a skill that would help me advance my career.
That's why I'm writing.
I have so many thoughts in my head that I feel like I needed a venue to express them.
That's also why I'm writing.
I want to learn in public. Make mistakes and not be afraid to fail.
If I write helps someone, that's great! If nobody ever reads what I write, that's great for me too!
Hoping this is only the beginning.
