What's your plan for the weekend?

Weekend is near and again it's time to focus completely on some personal endeavours! πŸ“ΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Although a lot of people feel / think that we should relax or do something else, including my family and friends, I rarely find myself interested in anything other than sitting with my laptop. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Whatever helps you relax, you should do it. And I utilise that time to learn new things or strengthen my expertise.

This weekend, I am going to work on improving my skills on Progressive Web Apps and service workers. πŸ’ͺ And planning to try out one or two from the tools I found on React Native development (I have a few on my browser's history that would serve as a checklist). Might also finish writing another article too! πŸ€“

What are your plans?

The stresses of the job search have been getting to me lately. I'm also moving apartments next week, so this weekend is reserved for relaxing and having fun.

I'm going camping πŸ• and going on a brewery tour. 🍻

Haha I'm reading "the declaration" by Gemma Malley. It starts off slow, but I'm really enjoying it now. Second book I've read for leisure in years. Do you have suggestions?

Currently I'm reading Code Complete 2 by Steve McConnell, which I found pretty good to read and have a few other books on my wish list that I'm going to order once I'm about to complete reading this!

Oh and Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers is also a nice book!

Hoping to put out my first post on dev.to! My friend lent me a book, "Algorithms to Live By" by Brian Christian and Tom Griffiths - so that will be keeping me occupied as well :)

Happy weekend! πŸ₯‚
