Well, 2020 was… interesting — what a challenging year for personal development and growth for everyone. Many people were forced into habit changes. Many had to learn how to be productive working remotely. Fortunately, I have been working remotely for around eight years, so it wasn’t much of a change for me. I do enjoy spending time inside, so even the quarantines we’re THAT unusual. Okay, my life didn’t change much in 2020, as it turns out. I spent a lot of time stuck inside working from home.
So you want to manipulate JSON from the command line? Well, you’re in luck! It’s 2020, and there are several ways to do this. Also, you’re super unlucky. It’s 2020, and the entire world is falling apart. But we can still learn about JSON at the command line!
My very first tech job was working at a local Mom & Pop computer repair and retail shop. And Pop, the owner, was eccentric. He had all kinds of catchphrases he would repeat over the years. “A business without a sign is a sign of no business!”. Is it coincidence that the shop also sold signs?
So this MrPowerScripts thing is still rolling. Longer than I ever thought it would. There were large gaps in time between uploading videos when I was only making content on youtube. Then trying to blog to be a better writer, and learn more about SEO. Again, large gaps in content creation there. Then I made a freaking podcast - and I’m the least talkative person ever. So, per usual, large gaps in content. I’ll admit I can run my mouth on and on about subjects I’m fond of, but I can’t have a podcast entirely based around cheese, basketball, and Python. Or can I?
I don’t talk a whole lot about my personal life because it’s not that amazing. But it’s far better than it started, and that didn’t change overnight. It’s the result of learning from many great people I’ve met over the years. And pushing myself to achieve goals that I would never have thought possible, of course, with many failures along the way.
