Big dreams day 1 — From my mental struggle with love
“I did it”: part one. That could be the summary of my day. If you know me for any reason, you will know how important is this for me. If you don’t know me, now you know that fact. But I don’t want to make this more than 2–3 minutes long and even less wasting your time. So, let’s get down to business.
I always wanted to make things. I’ve been always interested in a lot of topics. I know that if I sticked to any of the areas that I explored, I would be good at it. But, I’ll keep on working to be T-Shaped. Luckily, I found in web development the first stretch of my road. For me, that road is full of many different things, but that one has a big influence.
I’m always thinking. A lot. That does not mean that I think the right way (though I try!). But I can ensure that I have a really particular view of the world. And I love it. Unfortunately, this has big downsides that have prevented me from doing certain things. I’ve dealt with my mind for years (and I still do, It’s kind of funny sometimes). Really severe battles were needed to be where I am today. My mind goes really fast and the expectations of myself are always running away from me. But today, I did it. Yesterday, I started moving and today I have it. It’s just the first step, but I’m happy and I want to share this with you all.
Humanly Creative. This is the name that I chose a few years ago and I had forgotten in the footer of an old side project. When I read it again, like 5 years later, I knew it was the right one. That’s what I’m “selling”, because that’s the way I feel: human and creative. I don’t care about standards. Well, in fact I do, but I try to redirect them to my own piece of ground.
Yesterday, I opened my small studio, based in Barcelona, Spain. You’ll find me there coding, listening to music, drawing and so on. But that’s the important thing: YOU WILL FIND ME. I worked really hard to create my own path. I don’t know if it is the good one, but for the first time in a long time, I don’t care. I’m doing what I want.
Thanks for reading. There’s a bonus picture below ;)
