Gameboy -- Everything under the hood.

I don’t like consumerism. One of my favorite Scholars, Bertrand Russell, once said “It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly." But you can bet I have a soft spot in my heart for Nintendo products. Pokemon on Game Boy Advance was one the only games I have ever truly enjoyed before being dragged by the dark, drab realities of life.…

Investment Ideas - Not financial advice

I learned the lesson about saving money early in life by an Uncle who used to live in the building. A little later, I learned the value of investing this money from some degenerate friends. Let’s talk about some investment ideas. This is genuinely NOT financial advice: This is just a degen 23.yo’s experience.

Kanye West taught me how to live

I’ve never had a harsh childhood. My parents were very good parents, God Bless, and have always wanted the best for me. There’s been a fair share of living the typical Asian kid lifestyle: Curfews to return home, focus on academics, submission to authority — but in hindsight, it came from a place of love. Discipline, Peace, and Respect are what I’d call the pillars of Asian or at least Indian style of parenting.…

Moving out and the philosphy of Bitcoin

I’ve been an advocate of moving out as an instrument of Growth for a few years now. Of course, I come from some place of privilege: Two loving parents and a financial, mental and bodily capability. Please weigh your own situation before moving out. I first moved out from North India to South India to study Computer Science. The University I attended is an authoritative hellhole. That did not sit well with me, and I mentally checked out from the Uni, focusing on building things, studying on my own and having my own experiences.…

The journey of a C++ program

If you couldn’t already tell, I love Bjarne, and by extension, I love C++. In this article, I go over how C++ compiles a program to binaries, and why I love C++. This is partially to understand how C++ works. Documentation helps me understand. There are only two kinds of languages: the ones people complain about and the ones nobody uses. ― Bjarne Stroustrup, The C++ Programming Language I got pretty inspired by HaoranWang’s CRUSTand thus wanted to write my own Compiler for C.…

I smuggled a Kindle into my room and spent hours reading books as a form of entertainment.…
