Making it Pretty

by Cory on October 5, 2019

I got SASS setup and started plopping in css variables everywhere. I could get used to this. I read a little bit about semantic HTML5 tags and object-oriented CSS (OOCSS), block-element-modifier (BEM) methology, SMACSS, etc. Sounds cool....

This is the most beautifully laid out book. It's for really new beginners though, but the later examples are pretty substantial.

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.

Wow this is a really sad book. I never had to read this for school but I'm glad I read it now.
