My human changelog

A friend sent me a TikTok of someone thinking of their age as software versions. Loving this comparison, and immediately wanting to run away with it, I decided it would be fun to keep a document my version changes, a.k.a. a changelog.

I decided I'd make it public because I think it would be a fun way to capture where I'm at in life. At the end of each month, I'll add a short entry summarizing the changes I've experienced.

The versioning system is pretty straightforward. The Major version will be the decade, the Minor version will be the year, and the patch version will be the month.

For example, an entry for February on my 28th year of life would be v2.8.2.

Reconnecting with photography

After YouTube sent me down the film photography rabbit hole, I got my parent's old 35mm cameras and went all-in. Having shot on digital since I was 13, it's been a wonderful change.

The slow, imperfect and physical nature of it all really spoke to me. Much like how manual pour overs and pulling espresso shots require focused attention, so does film photography.

Exploring music production

I've always been interested in making music. As someone who lives in their headphones 90% of the day, creating rich audio experiences for others speaks to me.

I'm still very green and haven't been very active lately but I still dabble on occasion.

Learning Clojure

Object Oriented Programming never really clicked with me, and I didn't know why for a long time. When JavaScript began borrowing more functional programming concepts, I discovered I think more like a functional programmer than I knew. It only made sense that I pickup a more traditional functional language.

Being interested in LISPs ever since I saw the wacky bracket heavy syntax, and loving functional programming concepts, Clojure seemed like the perfect choice to dive into.
