I'm Making Great Progress on my Side Project and I'm Freaking Ecstatic

Wow, happy Tuesday - I'm on a freaking roll since last night. Allow me to explain...

So, yesterday I finally implemented a timing feature for my Wellbean app. Essentially, after a given number of hours (depending on the frequency set i.e. Daily, Weekly, etc), each list item will either stay white (default, timer hasn't expired) or turn red (expired, timer has run out).

When the list item/contact turns red, it means the user should consider contacting that particular contact, based on their pre-set contact suggestion frequency.

Ah! I'm so freaking excited about it. It's crazy how it's all coming together, both in the code and in my mind! I'm so proud of it all.

I'm going to focus today's work on learning how to implement Firebase rules for the database so that I can publicly release it while keeping the data private.

Then, after today, I'm going to wrap it all up, record a demo on Loom, craft up a big readME for the GitHub repo, and shout from the rooftops! Cheers.

It's crazy how it's all coming together, both in the code and in my mind!

It's the best feeling isn't it??

 

It totally is!! Can't wait to keep learning and building :D

 

I know how you feel, and I love it so much! That's why I'm never bored building stuff. Continue the good work!

 

Exactly, Matthieu!! There's no way to be bored when you're building things purely from your ideas and creativity! ⚡
