I think we saw a transition from a normal ordinary people waiting for death time shifting to facts and reality and where we live, someone realized why they don’t have to follow stereotype life type and be another one who no ones care about. someone may say this dehumanization process, but we should ask ourselves what does this human means? just act like living piece and then dreaming about what we want to be?
Imagine you are a software developer of any sort, people usually from managerial point ask you if you are a good finisher? if you can overtake every second to finish a task no. shit-000456 in a reasonable time, so they can make it live quicker, show it to customer/end-user quicker, collect money faster. that
done word and minutes are just there because of money, aren’t they? But let’s find out if they really do matter. (they not)
Imagine you are in a race, you, alone in a race track so call Nurburgring. The goal is to go more rounds in 1 year, 2 years or 20 years (I believe these numbers are the real number for a real hot software), you can collect money from the moment you take a step forward, you postpone you step forward, you gain less and lesser. So, what would you do? Start running? Hire more runner? Build a team of runners? multi-runners?
What if you take your time, forgetting about those greedy teams and build a team of engineers who can make you a car? a fast one, even a slow one, even a bike, bicycle or skate. then what would happen in 10 years? those runners are maniacs who think can beat a supercar by running early.
I strongly believe the same example is true in the software development world, you see some ideas pop up really quick and collect some money and then disappear, but some come later and stay longer and longer. when Instagram got popular, there were tons of other social media. when Google started to be a search engine, there were already search engines. When WhatsApp, Telegram or Discord started to get fame, there were similar platforms.
My point is that something beyond making things done and working quickly matters, I think that’s quality. If you do what you can do really good and with highest standards, you can put yourself in the market and grow, and enjoy your end result, no matter how crowded it is.
Am I afraid of war? am I afraid of people asking me why I didn’t the boring tasks? am I going to be in fear whenever I am in new places, meeting new people? Should I be in deep fear because I want to do what I like to do? should I be in constant fear of “did I satisfied the assholes I really do respect”? Am I responsible for fulfilling other random people satisfaction? How long should it take for me to realize that I should not give a fuck? When is the checkpoint that I stop fearing and start living? should I wait for the checkpoint or should I mark this moment as the checkpoint? Am I waiting for someone to save me and say me this is checkpoint? Is anyone care about my future? Is anyone other than me is responsible for my future? how many struggles, daydreams, and nightmare should I pass? what should I do? Why I can’t tell people NO in their face? what am I afraid of?
I have spent my whole life scared, frightened of things that could happen, might happen, might not happen, 50 years, I spent like that, finding myself awake at 3 in the morning, but you know what, ever since my diagnosis, I sleep just fine…I came to realize is that fear that’s the worst of it, that’s the real enemy, so, get up, get out into the real world, and you kick that baster as hard as you can right in the teeth.Breaking Bad – Season II
I really didn’t want to watch a new series, but I just started to watch Breaking Bad in 2019, Almost 10 years after the release.
The first thing that I kept in my mind was that it happened in 2008, so lots of tricks won’t work nowadays. like you just can’t smash someones’ car in a gas station and walk away, security camera CCTV are almost everywhere with the highest quality you can find on the market.
The second thing was cellphones; those folding old school cellphones brought lots of memory of how much fun it was for me to fold and unfold them. (Never owned one though)
The best part is the story itself, and how detail oriented it is, it seems every character and scene is well thought, and the narrative is distinct, Which is a good thing, But how many people dare to do anything for their family on their 50 like that?
One thing I couldn’t figure out is why all men characters are always shaved up, they stayed overnight awake, working or running or something but they still look like freshly shaved.
Nowadays AI/agents are obviously monitoring our calls and movement for any suspicious activity, They even scan our face on the street. I hope I get a chance to see Walter do his business on Tor using Cryptocurrency, there was a taste of it in Mr.Robot series.
Hope the series on season 2 to be good as this season, I can give it 9 out 10 for season 1.
