Reading other things

The other day I was trying to understand something and began to search the web. This lead me to a random rabbit hole because isn’t that usually the case with a lot of things too?

The thing I wanted to understand more was MySQL because there are things I know I don’t really know. I want to know more though. I do.

So I went and began to search for a book to read or even a video to help me understand a bit more. I wound up getting a book. I went and got Understanding MySQL Internals. I’ve read the first two chapters so far and am liking it so far. Part of the reason is because it dives more into the code of MySQL. The functions, the classes, and files used.

It really wasn’t what I was expecting but I love that. I guess you can say it almost rekindled my passion for reading those books again. It’s been too long since I’ve read a book like that and it’s been because I just didn’t think much about it.

Honestly, that is the biggest reason I haven’t read much either when it comes to those type of books. The other being that some are just not my type of read. I need to pick up more of those books though. I still haven’t finished reading one from a few years ago. Not sure I will though.

Indecisiveness

The other day I was looking over random themes because I still like web design and still want to mess around with this site for design things. The other thing is because I really can’t just decide how I want this site to look or rather how to display all the posts I have so far.

There are some themes I do like the look up of but I know most just have all sorts of random code that isn’t being used.

It’s a little painful to see that too.

Not fully sure on how to truly react just yet. I think a lot of that is because I haven’t done a theme review in such a long time. I really haven’t. It’s something on my short list of things to dive back to. That and photography.

I have been drawing a bit more too so that’s been good. The other thing I haven’t done though is read an entire book since I keep just putting it off. I don’t really know why I do though. I see the Kindle by my computer but just don’t really read.

I need to find my routine once more. I had one but I think that one didn’t completely involve me writing on here. Might just do that for a bit. I know part of the reason I chose to write on here more was to really use the WordPress editor more. I’ve been using Gutenberg for quite a long time too so I’m fairly comfortable with how things both look and act.

I will say there have been quite a few things that have changed over time with the plugin and how it is merged in with core. I personally have no quarrel with it since for me it’s just this simple site.

By the end of the year I do want to get more projects started at least so I can really see how other things work inside of Gutenberg.

Random post and random thoughts.
