Obsession

In the next few days, this blog might seem a little drab. All I can think about these days is code, cocktails and content. 

It’s been a while since I built an application from scratch and doing it again has reminded me why I began to love coding in the first place. 

This refresher that I’ve been giving myself has been therapeutic. And after some false starts, it’s starting to feel less daunting. 

It’s starting to feel as easy as writing again. (Writing isn’t always easy for me.)

“I think I’m a little obsessed,” I said to a friend the other day, after showing her the beginnings of my cocktail app. 

“You think?” she said. 

According to the dictionary, obsession is “the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire etc”. 

Obsession typically has a negative connotation attached to it. It’s bad to be obsessed, we think. 

But I’d like to argue that if an obsession leads to bigger and better things, why not?

It’s been a long time since I’ve been this passionate about something. (Is it bad that it’s alcohol? Does that mean I’m an alcoholic?)

It’s been ages since I was this excited. It’s the first time in a while I’ve felt this hopeful.
