When I'm Not A Developer...

Posted 20 August 2017 - 10:39 AM

When I'm not a developer, I am a writer. I write poems to spend my free time.

Just as I use my head to write codes, I use my heart to write poems. This is how I detach myself from stress and express how I feel.

I have a poetry blog in WordPress. It's called IdeaStrike.Net. Hope you can visit and if possible, leave some comments.

***

How about you? When you are not a developer, what are you? I'm hoping you can share how you spend your free time and if there are other talents you have besides programming.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

When I'm not writing code, I play music and translate literature. Not so much time for translation in the last year or so, but I'm getting back to it.

That's nice! While I hear a lot of developers into music, I seldom hear developers into literature. In fact, I only know of a couple of developers interested in literature.

I'd say I know more who are into literature than who are into music. I could do a book club with some devs I know but can't get one of em out to a concert.

I play music, and while I enjoy reading I'm not nearly as into it as jon is. One of the things I appreciate about him is the way he talks about books.

Wow Neotifa! Art and sewing?! That's incredible talent. I do like to draw but I'm just average on it. I know a lot of devs who are good at drawing, but sewing?! Most of the devs I know are so lazy with those things (I'm guilty on that too).

And Depricated, is the Molotov Cocktail Rock N Roll and Their Accomplices your group? Is the song your original? That's some awesome Rock N' Roll I'd say.

Neo has a whole crafts room she set up iirc. Or at least a really well put together station.

And yeah! Those are my groups - two separate ones actually. I play bass and do backing vocals for both. Both are about to release new CDs, we've got singles on the radio for Hopped Up (MCRNR) and also Medicine Man (Their Accomplices). Their Accomplices are (is?) going on tour in October, too! We're gonna head down to Florida (from Cincinnati), spend a couple days there, and then head back up.

Next year we're going to do a northeast tour. It's gonna be tits.

When I am not being paid to code, I game, build computers, read (fantasy/ science fiction mostly) and work on personal projects.

I haven't read any fiction for an age, but my preference is for Dickens, Scott, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, and others. I was into science fiction/fantasy in my teens ;) (Ray Bradbury, Asimov, Ursula K LeGuin, Wyndham).

I'm an oddball - I don't play games on my computer. If I did, it would be chess.

I play pool.

I do not sell my stuff, I just do it for fun. A very expensive hobby, I must say. And yes, I do have my own sewing room. It's pretty legit, but still a work in progress.
