If I’m not at work or running about, I am probably digging into some ReasonML/OCaml repositories like an addict in the tenderloin.
Perhaps I like it for the unparalleled incremental build speed.
Perhaps I like it because of my affinity for math in school, and the functional paradigm gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
Update 4/11/19: ReasonReact 0.7.0 has introduced some updates to the base API (including hooks! 😍) so some of the code snippets below are a little outdated. I’ll update this soon so this post stays relevant.

Before I landed my first paying role as a software developer, I had to learn how to stay fired up about working in tech. After graduating, it took me 9 months to get my first solid job.
To survive in the joblessness, I delivered pizzas and did simple freelance projects.
I had friends who graduated at the same time as me, frolicking about in their cozy Google intern roles. I just wanted to work somewhere where I could put my skills to use.
