I’m pulling back the curtain, spilling the tea, and taking you inside the minds and hearts of developers. It may sound silly, but I learned a lot from figuring out why dev memes are funny. Thanks to Instagram, I will NEVER forget that arrays start at 0.

I’m stupid. I suck. I’m the worst. I will NEVER understand this stuff! If you’ve ever had thoughts like these, you may be interested in reading about how I stop spiraling and get my brain back on track. If you have a process for this, I want to hear about it!
How many times did you ask, “When will we actually use this?” in high school? I have yet to solve the quadratic equation in my professional life, but these lessons I learned in AP English junior year have stuck with me. Shoutout to Mrs. Hoye!
