Me at 9: "I can make anything!"

Me at 16: "Everything has already been made"

Me a couple years ago: "Everything that has been made is awful and I need to remake it"

Me now: "Gosh I'm just awful at making anything myself"

I feel like my projects never come up to their full potential. I either lose motivation or I don't wrap them up and spread the word well enough to make it feel meaningful. Any advice?

One of the more interesting loaves I've baked recently...

I have an idea for manipulation of lists. Criticism is appreciated

I would add one symbol '@' that "unravels" a list into it's contents in order to manipulate it as if it was a single instance

numbers = [1, 2, 3]
@doubled = @numbers * 2
doubled = [2, 4, 6]

So this allows mapping. Filtering can also be done similarly by taking advantage of the logical aspect

numbers = [-1, 0, 1, 2, 3]
@result = :[
r = n * 2
n > 0
]~[n = @numbers].r
result = [2, 4, 6]

I've been trying to come up with a new unique list comprehension syntax for my toy language. I'm aiming mostly for readability without adding too many special characters/keywords. Any ideas?

I've been preparing my garden beds this year and I've really been interested in the use of heavily mulching soil to slowly compost in layers to provide sustainable nutrients to my soil. It's kind of crazy how low maintenance and simple this method is while producing great results.

I should be vegan again and attend far more tea ceremonies and identify more of the plants around my home and find water to listen to and also just listen to public radio at home and go to more classes even if I’m skeptical and send more mail and finally read a book in Esperanto and get back into pickling and bake some bread and learn how to propagate all of the plants in my care so I can share them

Slow Meadow is one of my favorite ambient music artists, it really helps me when trying to stay focused or relax

Spent the day doing a much needed pruning around the yard. Getting very excited for spring to see how everything turns out.

Here's a pixelated sky simulator I made a while ago. It syncs with your timezone and weather. Let me know of any ideas or improvements I could add!

These butternut squash seedlings in the morning are really quite beautiful.

These were a from a few seeds that I saved from last years harvest, I'm testing to see if they germinate.

I'm Kyle Perik from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 21 years old. I'm a developer, in my free time I work on whatever is on my mind whether that's language design or just simulations or visuals. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, bonsai and piano. Otherwise I'm working from home for a software insurance company.

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone! It's good to have an outlet for things as well as a place to check out what other cool things cool people are doing :)
