Hello! I’m Fate and I’m bad at introductions.
Small talks and opening spiels are the hardest for me. I tend to babble, ask uncomfortable questions or make inappropriate remarks to people I just met. Silently counting 1 to 5, taking a deep breath and putting on a polite smile saved me from having more awkward first interactions.
I write code for a living or at least try to not confuse other developers. Contrary to the popular opinion, I don’t drink coffee because it makes me twitch and I prefer tea instead. During college, I used to be an active member of a local open source community where I organized events and helped train students to be better student-leaders. I will gladly listen to theories and discussions on One Piece, Avatar: Aang the bald kid and the misfit crew of the Waverider all day long. Armed with a backpack and hammock, I try to travel solo to anywhere with saltwater whenever I can. I also waste my time watching too many sea turtle videos.
Writing soothed me more than ice cream and journaling proved to be an effective self-care technique when life becomes overwhelming. Reading and hearing stories allowed me to capture experiences of people, connect with them and learn what may work or may not work for me.
This blog is the undertaking: tales of how I tried and won, chronicles on how I tinkered on my failures and what I plan to do better the next time, why I feel and have the need to do and complete things, how I respond to instances that I can and cannot control, how I put value on constants and variables and other narratives in between.
