It’s past midnight. I should be sleeping right now because of work, but I couldn’t sleep. I actually skipped dinner because I had a huge (late) lunch with co-workers earlier today. I was about to write about a new mobile otome game I recently downloaded called Mystic Messenger, but I’ll save that for another day. After all, this is a personal non-niche blog and lately it’s becoming to be more of like a gaming blog LOL.1
I just turned the big 4-0 back in October, and this month, I started to go through things that I need to do at this age. I have to be aware of the possibility of getting diagnosed with other diseases aside from diabetes2 and how to be prepared for it. Also, I’m beginning to fear about age discrimination in the tech field, as I still haven’t succeeded in getting a job in the web development field. Luckily, I was able to join some supportive groups for women (of all ages) in tech, as well as keeping in touch with my fellow alumni at the Skillcrush Alumni Slack chats.
I’ve read an article at Sitepoint about age discrimination in the tech industry and I do plan on writing a commentary on it at The NINPOJineous right after I’m finished with the migration of the site to its own domain. I also plan on writing a book review on a children’s book, but it’s not quite what you think. Sometimes, children’s books help adults to understand more on a specific subject they try to get into, so never underestimate them.
I changed the body font again. For some reason, I was beginning to feel a little plain with just a standard sans-serif body font that I needed a bit of a flair to make the entire theme/layout refreshing to look at. ADRICULOUS 4.1.1 now?
It’s a short, random dribble-type of a blog entry, I know, but as I continue on writing, the more that I started to yawn. I guess this means it’s finally time for bed. There’s a lot more to write about in here but again, I want to save them for later.3
Lastly, when you are a web developer, software engineer, computer programmer, or anything similar that relies heavily on official documentation; when you cite something to prove your content being factual and correct, be sure to look up the official documentation first. You don’t just rely on “experts” for something so simple and then not confirm their statements to the official documentation. As a web developer, when I write my tutorials, I made sure that it does conform to the official documentation, such as HTML/CSS at the W3C site. Between the official documentation and an “expert,” I always side with the official documentation, first and foremost.
Besides, experts are human too. And like all humans, experts make mistakes.

- No, I do not plan on opening a separate blog for gaming, as I am a casual gamer. I’m still a gamer, nevertheless. [↩]
- PAP smear and mammogram… yup, it’s that time [↩]
- Eventually I’ll forget about them the next day. Maybe I should start opening up a bullet journal. Bleh. [↩]
