In walked 2014 lessons I got from 2013

14 Jan

I don’t blog as Much as I used to…let me begin with that…most days I have to write down something but heck…midway in the day I forget….any who…..I know many of you will think its writers block

2013 was a year of realization for me personally.I lost someone I called my teacher,I got stubbed in the back by assholes I thought meant something to me,my code matured, she finally said Yes to me after years of being in the inner depths of friend zone…..vitu mob,so let me basically categorize them for you.

Code aka ma source code

This code maneno all begun as a pass time in seco,and after that it was what I did when I didn’t have the funds to go pints with the crew.But I never imagined I would do it for a living. dont get me confused I knew I would delve in to code post college not Math but not to this depths. From meetings in Central Bank to  Safaricom and in between sijui how many other  blue chip companies and banks in between. Code was good to me in 2013. And I guess I realized if its not this am going to do post colle then id rather try my hand at cooking meth like walter white.

You need to end some relationships

If you wake up in the morning and you are already weighed down then kuna kitu hufanyi poa…and that was me in 2013. The work load of a coder is mad enough as is,couple that with BS from assholes who surround you then you are shortening your lifespan.

I worked on projects that I got in only by this words “Niko na Idea poa,I think we should develop” only to realize you are building someones dreams.Au projects you think are paid only for you to get facked in the ass by the co dev…pesa amekula,product hakuna  and since its your name on the doted line you are the one left holding your dick in the cold. So you end up remitting monies back you didnt touch,burnt relationships that are tricky to salvage etc. I felt bad when the friendship I had with a character I this Blog I refer to as Jean Grey ended. But that life and thats how the dice rolled. So you just wake up like size 8 and say am done with that crap…fack yall

You need to outgro your mentors

As a kid you would hold on to mums dress and felt scared when she wasnt there..but there comes a time you have to move past that or you will never grow as an individual. I Respected Idd Salim as one of the key guys who made me. and I moaned deeply his loss,I got insluts about being a mini Salim sijui Idd Wanna be and what not. Because my Merian blood boils hot I would simply have countered,I went to speak but was like never mind   wacha tu…..sare Jaymo Dumisha amani.

kuna watu mob who also influenced and I will forever respect that….but pole  if you think I will forever be in your shadow..I always give reference to Iverson checking his mentor Jordan and thats when Iverson was truly born Did Jordan go ahead and call a press conference and say Allen Iverson is disrespecting him …sit at the corner and think about that.We all wanted to be like Mike

I got My Numbers Right 

Wako wapi wasee wakusema na copy  sijui nani…haya ndo hiyo am copying this from a blog I love ” I got my Numbers right,It finally got to my code cranium. All code without scrilla makes Jaymo an un-focused coder. That is All I will say.”

Partnerships and Relationships

Biggest lessons fall in this category. There are people who will stick with you no matter what. There are those that will RUN away at the first sight of trouble. There are those who are there to USE you to gratify their egos. There are those who are there to PROFIT from your efforts. There are those who will STEAL from you, without a moment’s hesitation. There are those who will KEEP AWAY from you as soon as they start ‘doing well’.There are those that will smile at you then stab you wearing the proverbial VELVET glove.

Clean Up your plate as soon as you get your serving

Am guilty of having taken too long on some projects.Not because singe hack but because I was busy arguing Android na Iphone ni gani poa…Vaseline au Dame ni gani poa, and while I was doing this people were churning stuff out. I am guilty of having kimbishad scrilla sanaa,sijui client hajalipa depo sijui nini…and subsequently I developed bad blood towards a project,only for the scrilla to come and you left there again holding that Long dick of yours in the cold,project haikumalizwa na uko na pressure ya kumaliza. Fack coding kwa hao onsite coding with fellow devs has its pros superseding its cons

Bottom line is if you can build it as fast as you get it than you have the time to read Ghafla or tweef on Twitter

Tell your Girl you Love her More

There are days you wake up and its straight meetings and code reviews…bosses on your neck and you can barely get time to text or call. Or times when its you and her na system ime crash na you have to leave…let her understand. Coz when shyt trully hits the fan you know she got you. Thank God for Her…{ Thts for you Irene I love you Ma }
