Quick Update

Hi everyone! I’m still in the stock market. I’m learning more week by week. I enjoy watching the discourse around certain stocks. In the time since I last posted, I’ve picked up a new hobby. I’ve always loved to read books, but lately I haven’t had the attention span to keep up with a story. One day I was scrolling through YouTube and saw something about programming. I went through a whole bunch of videos about what language to learn, and they all kept recommending Python as a beginner programming language. I downloaded Python and an IDE called Visual Studio Code. I could have just used the IDE that came with Python, but I like VSC better. Both Python and Visual Studio Code are free. I used YouTube and Real Python to learn the essentials. I’ve only been doing this for about a month, so I’m no expert, but I’ve been having fun. I think its import to have fun when learning something new. I also think its good to learn stuff as hobbies instead of trying to monetize everything. I’ll provide some resources below for anyone interested in starting programming. There is a whole bunch of resources across the internet and honestly, getting information for free is super awesome!

Another quick note: Music has been a little slow the last few months, but we did get a new album from Demi Lovato. Dancing With The Devil/The Art of Starting Over is her first album since her near fatal overdose in 2018. Th album is really good and I enjoy it. You should go give it a listen.

Bye for now. Programming resources are below!
