It’s normal to feel anxious when applying for a job. After all, you’re trying to present your best self in hopes of getting the job. Today’s article will help you learn to control or work with this anxiousness.
I propose four ways to work through your anxiousness
- Be pessimistic about the interview
- Don’t care about the results
- Face the anxiousness head-on and work through it
- Bring your real self instead of your best self
I found out about Astro while reading CSS Trick’s newsletter. I knew I had to check it out since both Chris and Robin were excited about it. And boy, I’m excited too, even though I only read the Github Readme!.
I want to share why I’m excited about Astro today.
I wanted to hire an assistant to help me with the workload for my business. After many failed attempts (and hence lots of paralysis), I’m happy to say I found a person who’s a joy to work with. Her name is Jen.
I want to talk about the hiring process and what I learned about each step — mostly to consolidate my learnings. It’ll be a bonus if this helps you work through any kinks when you’re in that stage.
These are my opinions and don’t reflect what other hiring managers or employers think.
defer attributes look like they do the same thing at first glance, but there are nuances to
defer. Most of the time, you’d want to use
defer instead of
async, even though
async sounds sexier.
I’d like to walk you through the differences and why you should use them (and also why you don’t have to use them).
For a while I’ve been telling myself that it’s okay as long as I tried my best. It’s been a decent strategy for a long time, but it’s not working for me anymore.
I want to explain why it doesn’t work and what pitfalls you might want to watch out for if you use the same strategy in your life.
My Macbook broke down after using it for a year — the logic board got fried. I got this Mac repaired and it broke down a month later. The logic board got fried again 🤦♂️.
Long story short, Apple agreed to repair the Mac again for free. They also agreed to send me a new Macbook as a replacement since my current one gave me so many problems.
In the meantime, I’ve gotten pretty good at setting up my Mac and I’d like to share how I do this with you.
I’m playing around with Sass again recently and I noticed newer features (like
@forward) are only available on Dart Sass. Upon further inspection, I noticed that LibSass is now deprecated.
This article aims to help you get started with Dart Sass if you’re using Gulp.
It used to be complicated to use Prettier and Standard together. We had to disable Prettier for specific languages. Thankfully, there’s a simpler way now.
It used to be straightforward to disable languages for Prettier in VSCode. You just added a
prettier.disableLanguages setting and you were done.
// In settings.json
prettier.disableLanguages is deprecated so we can’t do this anymore. Here’s what we can do instead.
If you ask around the web, many people will say you don’t have to remember everything since you can always google. But this answer doesn’t help — you can’t always Google everything, every time. If you forget absolutely everything and Google everything all the time, you’re going to be real slow when you code!
So what’s the alternative? What must you remember? What can you forget? That’s what this article is for.
