What was your win this week?

Hey folks!

Just to note that I've taken up the ritual of posting this Friday series that the awesome @graciegregory was previously regularly sharing. I'll be following the same format and am looking forward to seeing what y'all have been up to! 🙌

Looking back on this past week, what was something you were proud of accomplishing?

All wins count — big or small 🎉

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Fixing a tricky bug
  • Eating a delicious meal 😋

Hope y'all have nice relaxing weekends!

I returned from vacation! The win is accepting it like a champ 😂
This month my online activity dropped to zero, but now I want to retake it, write posts, answer questions in SO, update on GitHub projects, etc

Could actually write multiple things, but in the end, what matters is how it makes me feel.

By rating the mood each day for 4 years in an app I can see on paper that the past two weeks has been unusual good. That's my win :)

I have made a discord bot and server that will be used by our academy's tutors and students, in order to make getting help easier :D It's a ticket system with extras, written from scratch and ran on my Raspberry Pi. One of my first small projects that is actually used in a real-world scenario.

I donated again my blood for people who need it. 🎉
I was recently told that it's useless, I don't believe it.

What about you, have you ever thought about giving blood to save lifes?

One of my readers here on dev.to started contributing on one of my Open Source projects on GitHub.

I see it as a double win, so happy about that!

I have 2 wins this week, which are:

  1. I have finished my full stack NodeJS bootcamp with successful final presentation
    on my landing page and CRUD mockup, and about to receive a placement this
    month as a full stack software developer.

  2. I almost finished my navigation bar on my project about popular FAQ site which is
    Quora, this is already a win for me, because I learned a lot while working on this
    project. If you don't know about Quora, you can search quora.com/

Biggest win was definitely bundling a Rust app and getting it to run on iOS. Now I'll never have to touch Swift or Obj-C again. Wrote a little thing on it too
