After months of learning, tinkering, and misunderstandings, today was my first -only workday. No :vscode:, felt totally comfortable in :emacs: Yet, I still feel it is only just the beginning of a long journey.

Today I put all work aside and spent the day with these three things. I enjoyed the experience.

Just wrote a game called "craps" in lisp as an exercise from the book "Common Lisp". One cool thing about Lisp is that I almost instantly realize when I write redundant code and should build new functions instead.

So I end up with 12 very-little functions instead of a single big one which I'd have written in any other Algol-based language.

I'm still at the very beginning of my journey but it is already shaping my character 😜

Love the series from System Crafters! Learn Emacs and Emacs Lisp from inside out:
