Mirage Editor

by Cory on August 11, 2019

I've been slowly chipping away at making a text editor using React. Damn, I thought I could make something quick and simple real quick but text processing has so many corner cases and shit. This isn't even a simple react app.

The progre...

    Rusty But Still Working

    by Cory on March 13, 2015

    I rode my bike for the first time in probably more than six months. It felt good.

    I left it lying next to the house outside all these months, even when it was pouring rain. Everything's all scratched up and rusty, but still working. Maybe I'll be...

    More Changes to Come

    by Cory on March 9, 2015

    I've been stuck in my room pretty much all day everyday for the past few months trying to get this website up and I finally managed to deploy it. The big "grand opening" moment probably won't come until I can get my old hosting company to freaking...

Anger Management for Everyone

Raymond Chip Tafrate

I had to read this because I started to hate my job and all my ideas don't make any money. It's a good book though with a lot of techniques that cover lifestyle changes, behavioral changes, and provides you with ways to manage anger. Not just anger but bitterness and over negativity too. To get the most out of the book requires picking a new strategies and following through on them until they become habit. I've been trying to keep a disciplined schedule and practice for these couple weeks and I think I can already feel results.

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup

John Carreyrou

I didn't know that Theranos was so fucking crazy. Just from casually listening to the news I thought it was just some girl who bit off more than she could chew and then started lying. No, this is the Final Fantasy 7 house of silicon valley start ups. I was captivated by this guys book the whole way through. I thought 350 pages would be long but it flew by. Also the stereotype pairing of young girl engineer and creepy piece.of shit incompetent old guy is really common in Silicon Valley. It's the worst. I need to get out of here.

12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos

Jordan B. Peterson

This book is life anecdotes backed up with psychology for how to become an enlightened person. He also really likes the Bible. (Belief not necessary to enjoy the book). I think he has some interesting points but I disagree on a couple things, for instance when he says it's completely unreasonable to not want to have kids or that "striving the maximum good for most people" is specific enough to let you figure out what you should do in a day. I learned a lot of cool things about lobsters though.

Small Business For Dummies

Eric Tyson

I found this on a table at work and it was from 1998 which is funny because computers and the internet were super new back then. This is an overview for someone who has no clue how to start a business
