Dreaming in Code.

I did alot of bartending in my 20s. It required late nights and isolation from the weekend warrior crowd. To summarize I was tired, I was lonely.

Reset: I did alot of video gaming in my 20’s.

While I was a gamer I would go into what some would call the “HaloHole”. Much like ketemine, you were tranquilized. Trying to get that next frag. Your brain would give you a little dopamine drip. Get that top spot and all those juicy medals in the postgame report. When I fell into these holes, I would actually start dreaming of improving tactics and trouble”shooting” methods.

Reset: I didn’t have alot of girlfriends in my 20’s, but thats another blog way far away. This is my 40’s, I’m into learning a new vocation.

Now that I spend hours:

  • looking at one component trying to figure why the text is spilling outside the box
  • sorting through my numerous index files for that “one code that worked in that one scenario”
  • trying to fall back into focus while my wife talks to me about the kid and yogurt
  • debugging for a single quo’tation
  • photoshopping over 3 pixels…
  • searching for or creating content because the same 3 photos in my various projects are getting boring
  • typing <,>,/,{,},(,),”,[,],’,:,;#,

“Its the obsessive in my nature. I know I am getting a bit of endorphin supplement while I learn the core of HTML CSS and JavaScript.”

I have begun to dream about what regular people dream about, but with a twist. There is a code hiding behind the image (not visually) I am dreaming about. It can be manipulated, controlled. Not like the matrix…no Neo shit here. If I get shot in my face in my dream, I wake up.

Its the obsessive in my nature. I know I am getting a bit of endorphin supplement while I learn the core of HTML CSS and JavaScript. The first two come naturally. The script not so much. I’ll keep starting from the base level until I dream in </script>., its a reminder to take a break every no and again.

Leave me a not bot response below. Thanks! -scott
