digging all the rabbit holes
I can feel myself shifting in headspace towards learning and growing again without some external pressure being the driver. I imagine the shift comes from having submitted my resignation and starting a new role in two weeks. I find myself not bounded to concerns related to that business and the unrealized pressure/stress that came with wanting to solve the problems by spending my time trying to arrive at solutions or find resources to learn and support.
Bluntly, I care less about those concerns and in three days, I will not be concerned at all.
And good for me for not caring anymore, because I can go back to feeling "free". I realized that I'd been holding onto concerns/stress even after the "work day" ended, because I cared a shit ton and that was taking its toll on me.
I feel my curiosity returning and eagerness to learn all the things again!
Here's what I've settled on so far....
Where I Want to Focus (for now...)
- Interpreters and Compilers
- Functional Programming & Lambda Calculus
There is this want to return to first principles and revisit concepts with the goal to grow into and feel comfortable with them.
From those first principles I imagine that I will be able to derive the principles on which the first principles are built upon.
At some point I will revisit Assembly and jmp and push and all that good jazz, but that's for another time.
I feel like I am swimming in a wide open pool with the swim lanes removed and I can just explore.
It is liberating.
