Hello world!

I’ve had the idea of writing a blog for a while now.

When I was not feeling great a few years ago, a friend of mine told me to write down what I was feeling. The idea was weird to me, I didn’t really expect it to do anything but still I tried it, and when I had a moment where i felt really bad, I picked up an old notebook and just wrote everything that went through my head. Then when I reached the point where I couldn’t come up with stuff i felt bad about anymore, I somehow felt a lot better. Turns out the simple act of writing can be good, who knew !

While I still do this when I feel really down and I have no one to talk to, the result is very private and I won’t just show it to anyone (I think most people couldn’t read it, I have terrible handwriting that I make even worse when doing this, and most of it isn’t coherent sentences).

Still, there are a lot of times when I just have ideas, thoughts and opinions that pop in my head, and I don’t really have people around to tell that would be interested in them. I figured writing these thoughts down could be interesting, and so this blog was born.

What you’ll most likely read here

Even though I don’t want to limit myself in this, I have three topics that I will most likely write about :

  • Code and software engineering stuff : as someone that write code both for a living and has a hobby, I have stuff I want to share about it.
  • Woodworking : I started woodworking about a year ago, and I’ve been really passionate about it every since. Having very little experience (woodworking has been around forever), I can’t really teach much (I can tell you who can though) but I believe it also means that I have a fresh point of view about it that I think can be interesting !
  • Reviews: I don’t have much to say about this: I read books, I listen to a lot of music (mainly hip hop), I play games and I watch movies. Now I want to write about these.

Everything that doesn’t fit here (like this post) will go into the Misc bin where you’ll be able to read pretty much anything. I might update these categories, but that’s how they are now.

Thanks for reading, and welcome to my world!
