There's supposed to be a devlog today but there's basically nothing that I did
in the past 7 days that would count as enough content for it. There was progress
but not enough.
Anyway, The founders planned a trip to Ghej Bid , a small village in
Gujarat, India. The plan started about a month ago and as always my "Who
cares, I don't want to go" ass just went back to code review and handling
merge requests for the day. About 15 days after that, my manager was like "come
na, it'll be fun" and so I just thought I'd give it a chance. I've been told
enough times that I don't go out and that's why I'm not social. People don't
realise it's the other way around.
Back to the trip, So 7 days back from today, I travelled with 3 people, we got
to the farm house, ate amazing breakfast, slept at around 2 AM or 3 AM almost
every day, made offensive jokes as always, was the only one laughing
(obviously!) but end of the day, I think I found peace in the house.
No, no, no! Not because of people but the change in scenery was nice. I normally
would just sit in my room or watching something on Netflix and the cool breeze
there just made it a lot more peaceful. This lasted like 2 days cause then it
was 17 people in total instead of just us 4 and the social anxiety kicked in
real quick, which I should be used to by now but it still makes me
uncomfortable. Whatever, didn't matter. I still had a room I could just sit in
and silence the noise with my headphones. I'd watch,listen or code something
that would calm me down.
Stayed in the crowd for a day, ended up almost getting into trouble but that's
just how it is. If I could predict everything and anything I would be God
and not just a guy with a god complex.
With all this, and me being in vacation mode, all I was able to complete was
office work and I ended up writing prototype code for
statico's next version since the current one
can't be scaled anymore without a major refactor or patching in and around the
code. In other news, Razorpay didn't like Taco,
I'll have to change the payment implementation to be either Paddle or Stripe and
then handle taxes manually (too much work!!!)
All in all, 3 things I enjoyed the most.
That's where the trip ended, I got back to my relatives place and that's about
These are things that happened, on the other side, things that didn't change
Overall, nice experience.
Wasn't as productive for my side projects but I guess I needed the quite time
without work to be refreshed
