The start of the year is expensive

Until you get to the point you’re an adult, the start of the year is nothing special. But then… you begin to hate it. I am not sure how many expenses there are in your country, but I just had to pay those this month: Car insurance – I have 10 years and a couple...

This is entry #5 for the Bloganuary challenge. Today’s prompt is “What brings you joy in life?” There might be days when I am down, days when I am very happy, or regular/normal days. There might be periods of time when I am in the mood for coding and stay at the office desk more,...

What is a treasure that’s been lost?

This is entry #4 for the Bloganuary challenge. Today’s prompt is “What is a treasure that’s been lost?” I am going to be grim in today’s post.

Buble gum and adventures

This is entry #3 for the Bloganuary challenge. Today’s prompt is “What is the earliest memory you have?” Our brain is an interesting concept, it tends to forget things to make room for new memories, at least that is how my brain works. But in fact, I think I never forget things but somehow put...

Am I really brave?

This is entry #2 for the Bloganuary challenge. Today’s prompt is “How are you brave?” I never considered myself a brave person, but now that I think about it… there might be some part of bravery inside me. Why? Because I have a higher risk tolerance than others, and you need to be brave for...

What is something I want to achieve this year?

Today’s prompt is “What is something you want to achieve this year?“ This year something I want to do is start reading. I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts and video...

When I got these two bills out from the ATM in Washington earlier this year, the DXY index which shows the strength of the dollar was at 113.95, today the same strength is lower at 104.32.

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share a quick update about my blog. I recently decided to upgrade the underlying technology stack, which included upgrading the PHP version from 7.4 to 8.2 and upgrading the Laravel framework from version 7 to version 9.

While this process went smoothly overall, I did run into a few issues with certain packages and plugins that were incompatible with the newer versions. It took some time to troubleshoot and resolve these issues, but I am happy to report that everything is now running smoothly on PHP 8.2.

Overall, I’m really excited about the performance improvements and new features that come with these upgrades. I’m looking forward to exploring all that the new versions have to offer and continuing to provide a great experience for my readers.

Thanks for following along, and stay tuned for more updates from me in the future!

Guess it's obvious, but the theme is created by myself with TailwindCSS. You can find the source code here.
