Don't just Show Off. Show Off nicer


Sometimes the stuff you know is like a secret level in a game – best kept under wraps until the perfect moment. When the spotlight hits, that's when you drop your knowledge bomb. It's all about that smooth reveal, you know? Keeps you flowin' with mad style

Just now, I was about to share some fresh knowledge I've picked up recently, but I paused. It's better to enhance my value quietly, without showing off.

Light Bites in Spain: A Surprisingly Slim Feast!

How is it possible to go to a cafeteria here in Spain, order a sandwich with extra thin slices of turkey and extra thin cheese, a cheesecake with strawberries, and a small orange juice for 8.70 euros in a normal neighbourhood? Are we crazy? This is too much. I'm not complaining, but it seems like we're going to starve

Hi again fam mates buds

So I'll try to be cool and write this in a nice way:
Hey fam! Been a whole month since I dropped anything on the blog, feels kinda sus. My blog's SEO is basically RIP, worse than awful, and my readers? Just a handful of buds and acquaintances. But guess what? Ya boi is back! Took a lil' break from the code grind and blogging – dunno who'd care, but hey, here I am again. BTW, in the latest trivia, realized my last month's work pre-break was kinda for nothing. Gotta tweak that HTML from scratch. Just a heads-up to myself to figure out what's next when I'm back at my crib. Anyway, holla at y'all again, peeps! ✌️😎

Who is not replacing Hamilton then?(in 2025)

I find it amusing how, if you've followed the F1 news over the last three months or so, it seems like they've mentioned every driver from every team as a potential replacement for Hamilton at Mercedes next year. It's not a big deal, but it's funny how no one really knows anything.mm.

I've tried chess.com a bit

In the absence of an entertaining game for Android to pass the time on train rides, I decided to give chess a try on chess.com. Impressively, after just three days of playing, I've already scored 500 points and made it into the Bronze League. I'm on track to reach the Silver League soon if I keep up my current pace. To enhance my gameplay, I've started exploring various tutorials and strategies. I'm even contemplating creating a series about my chess journey. As of now, I haven't faced particularly strong opponents, but I'm eager to see how my skills will develop as I progress.

Type faster journey. Would you join or just watch?

 As I continue to develop my trivia and rapid-fire writing game, I still find time to indulge in some friendly competition on platforms like TypeRacer, TypeFast, or MonkeyType. Recently, I've been closely monitoring my progress on MonkeyType, and I must say, the stats are quite enlightening.

I have a hunch that my actual skills might be a notch above what's depicted in the photo I shared. This is primarily because my focus has been on honing my typing speed in Spanish. Nonetheless, hitting a speed of 120 words per minute (wpm) seems to be my current limit. It's fascinating, though, to see others effortlessly reaching 250 wpm! I could be content with 180wpm

This realization brings me to a point of reflection. Some of my friends jokingly call me 'old' for this digital era (which I assure you, I'm not!), but it does seem like a good opportunity to start afresh. I'm considering relearning typing with the QWERTY layout, using all my fingers in a more efficient manner.

And here's an exciting thought – why not share this journey with you all? I'm thinking of starting a series on my blog to document my progress. It'll be a way for my "fans"to join me on this adventure of rediscovering the art of typing. Stay tuned!

Too many pretty faces in the movies

Last weekend, I checked out "Baby Taxi". Not a bad choice for a Saturday night, pretty straightforward movie. Had some action, a few twists. But man, that ending left a lot to be desired. I mean, can't they at least clue us in that after five years in the clink, the guy's got some dough saved up for a fresh start?

Anyway, it got me thinking. Why is it always the good-looking folks hogging the spotlight? I wanna see movies with regular, everyday people as the main characters. Too many pretty faces up there, you know? It kinda takes away from the realness, makes it all feel a bit plastic.

Scalping at 1 min - but don't get mad

 Is scalping in 1 minute intervals a quick route to making money without any prior trading knowledge? Well, it might seem like the simplest approach. Just keep an eye on the charts, and you could potentially turn 50 euros into 500 euros in no time. However, as effortless as it sounds, there's also the risk of losing all your money just as easily. It's a real opportunity to make some cash, but be prepared—it can seriously mess with your time and your peace of mind.If you're already enjoying a comfortable salary and prefer to steer clear of headaches, this might not be the best path for you. But if you're in need of some extra cash and can resist becoming obsessed with it, it's definitely worth considering.

Of Idle Weekends and Lackluster Deeds

Ah, yet another weekend whiling away in the realms of nothingness. My productivity, once a towering monument of ambition, now resembles a deflated balloon drifting aimlessly in the winds of apathy. I've become a connoisseur of reels, consuming them with voracity only to find my memory retaining a paltry 0.1%.

This weekend's escapades included rendezvous with a friend over beers, indulging in kebabs, indulging in more beers whilst watching a movie, and attempting to convince myself that I'm the next Wimbledon champion during a round of tennis. Alas, the list ends there, leaving me feeling like a protagonist missing a crucial plot twist.

The absence of progress in my trivia web app, the stagnant pool of my Spring Boot knowledge, and the immobile state of my supposed "trading career" all serve as reminders of my existence on a hamster wheel of procrastination. And don't get me started on the enigma of why I can't dive deeper into trading—apparently, time consumption is a real thing, who knew?

Despite the lack of substantial achievements, this weekend's journey wasn't entirely devoid of charm. Yet, lurking in the shadows of contentment is the ominous premonition of impending doom—a harbinger of someone, somewhere, making me rue these moments of leisure.

Oh, and let's not forget the epic tale of the half-liter milk consumption, culminating in a symphony of stomach pain. A saga so grand, it deserves its own chapter in the annals of trivial pursuits.

Are these woes universal or are they the plight of us "aliens" wandering amidst the mundanity of existence? The answer eludes me, much like the plot of those forgotten reels.
