Are you an Emotional Wreck or an Emotionless Fool?

The time it takes for people to learn about your bad qualities, is the extent to which you've isolated yourself from the world. And trust me, that's not good

We see all these movies and shows, with their amazing cunning characters, and their unpredictable moves, and that's what blows us off! What amazes us, inspires us. And we get inspired to reserve ourselves from the world, get inspired to tread softly, as if one little wrong word from our speech will bring down our entire world. We start putting on this robe of silence, and inside the mental mirror of ours, we see ourselves as the shrewd cunning mind that we covet. Without perceiving that how something so trivial managed to get into our hearts, and made us do something that we never wanted to.

In all honesty, I've been a quiet man for a lot of years, with many questioning me about my silence. There is a time you feel proud of this habit, thinking that it's part of you now; and maybe it is, but I really hope it's not. Ask yourself, what's the point of this wall between you and the world? So the world is unable to understand you? You might be able to, no doubt. But in keeping away from people about your future actions, you keep away your emotions, your heart and your affection towards them. One might ask, what's the point of being vulnerable at all? At least by isolation, no one harms you from the inside. And that is great, to be honest. You save yourself a lot of pain in life. But just by saving this 'pain' in life, you're losing the very element of it. That's the beauty of being vulnerable - pain.

When you open yourself up to people, some judge you, some love you, and some befriend you. Eventually, many of them hurt you too, but that's what I call life. Osho used to say, "Life is like a rollercoaster ride. The UP periods should be the dancing periods, the DOWN periods should be working periods. There is no right or wrong in whatever you're doing - it's just life!" Little did he know that people would start getting detached from life itself! Trust me, if your life is emotionless, and it's not a rollercoaster ride, you're practically dead.

Would you rather see this?
Or this:

Just heartbeats, eh? Could be real illustrations of your life too.

So watch out, live out, laugh loud and open yourself up to the world, because the world is no war where people are all out to hurt you, no. It's a place which houses duality. And just because the storm can harm your boat is no reason for you to not set sail into the amazing ocean seeking treasures of emotions and beautiful moments.

Namaste JavaScript Quick Notes

Note:  Akshay Saini's Namaste JavaScript is probably the best course for JavaScript developers out there. These are my personal notes that I made while watching the course; they serve more of as an online quick reference for my understanding and revision, and I hope it benefits anyone reading it too! Everything in JS happens inside an Execution Context. Before a JS code is run, memory is allocated and variables are set as undefined   , and functions are set as their exact code in the scope within the Execution Context. The global execution context hosts all the global variables and function definitions. An Execution Context has 2 components: Memory, that stores variables and functions; and Code, that reads and executes the code. Call Stack maintains the order of execution contexts. Since JS is single threaded and asynchronous, at one point of time, only one function is executed which is at the top of the call stack. For each function, an execution context is created before executi

i3wm essentials - I (Brightness)

So you have started using i3 and somehow managed to open your browser and almost resumed your normal work.  But wait, the brightness is too much isn't it? Or is it too low? The mousepad used to work fine, but now all of a sudden tapping does not equal click?!  Don't worry.  This blog series will tell you all about the essential setup commands and common shortcuts that I use to navigate my work in i3, and how you can too. Changing the brightness So you just started i3 and you just can't take this brightness setting. You go for your function keys, and damn! They aren't working. Quick fix: Run the following command if you need to change the brightness ASAP. xrandr -q | grep ' connected' | head -n 1 | cut -d ' ' -f1 This will give an ouput that's the name of your monitor.  Use that monitor name here and change the values of brightness to suit your needs. xrandr --output <monitor-name> --brightness 0.7 Now that your eyes are comfortable, let me show

An introduction to APIs

API is an acronym for Application Programming Interface. Let's start with first defining some basic terms: Browser: These are browsers. To visit any website on the internet, you need a browser. Server: Hmm, this is tough. In simple words, server is a computer. Yes, just like the laptop, or PC at your home. The only difference is that it does not have a screen. Of course, there are other differences in technical specifications, but at its core, the server is just, simply, a computer. That's it. So why is it called a server? Because it serves . When you go to a website like google.com , your computer connects to the internet and gets you your search result. But your computer's internet connection has to get that result from somewhere, right? If the google search result is giving you some answers, the answers have to come from somewhere. What is that place? The answer to that some place is: a server. When you click on the search button on google, or hit enter after typing, &q
