Cleaning the house of code

Tidying isn’t just a physical thing. It’s an emotional thing. You face things around you, and you face your inner self - Marie Kondo

I’m cleaning house. More specifically, I am cleaning up my Github profile. But I’m also cleaning up my house of code (in general). It was time to take out the old and bring in the new. Today alone I think I got rid of 46 repositories. With a few exceptions, everything is still on my local machine, but all my Free Code Camp algorithms are now housed here all with write ups and all.

I was itching to move on with my content. Now that I am enrolled in an evening Full Stack JS Intensive boot camp at NYCDA while still searching for my next developer gig or position, I decided it was time for a major overhaul. It felt good to clean up. A tidy house of code means a tidy mind. I am a strong proponent of that philosophy.

While searching for images befitting this post, I came across images of and from a book entitled The Life Changing Magic Of Tidying Up By Marie Kondo.

Apparently it’s a thing! Then I came across an image of a great quote from it:

Keep only those things that speak to your heart. Then take the plunge and discard all the rest. By doing this, your can reset your life and embark on a new lifestyle.

Things are looking good already.

Happy code clean up!
