Working on 

Nulango, a web app that helps people quickly learn a language, this site, and O-Chem Shop.

Learning

Mongolian throat whistling, React JS (Javascript library),  Amazon Web Services, 11ty (static site generator), and French.

New Music

Hum by Holographic Field

This instrumental song starts slowly with a mysterious synth sound and sythetic flute sound that slowly builds into a sci-fi soundscape that transports you inside of whatever you're working on. Listen to it when you need to get into a flow state.

New Discoveries

Recently started watching short video clips from movies, that are dubbed in both English and French. I've found this to be a very effective and entertaining way to learn a language. Check out the Learn French From a French Guy YouTube Channel to try out this learning strategy for yourself.

I think this method of learning is especially helpful when paired with a spaced-repetition software such as Anki, that you add new words you from the movie clips you watch, then periodically review what you've learned.
