My first failure and how I overcame it👇🏼
It was presentation day. I had a HUGE presentation for my microprocessors project in college. The only problem was I didn't have the project finished. I procrastinated too long, and barely got any of it done because the project was so hard.
So I got up in front of the class, presented my project that would probably get a C, and walked back to my seat. I felt so disappointed in myself. I could've done better! Why did I not prioritize this project more??
After class, I ran straight to my best friend in the engineering department. I went straight into a hug and started crying on her shoulder. I was so upset, and she was the person I knew would understand and make me feel better. Which she did.
See, failure sucks. It hurts more than anything. But with the right person, you'll realize that it's okay. Everyone makes mistakes! You can make some also.
Looking back, I feel so grateful to have had another female engineering major to be there for me. And now as an entrepreneur, I feel so grateful to have @markdalton_ there for me always.
Don't overcome failure by yourself. Find a friend to talk to in those hardest moments. It makes everything a little bit better.
BTW, I still pulled off an A in my microprocessors class😅
Do you still remember your first failure? How did you overcome it?

THREE things you need if you work at a computer all day👇🏼
1. Blue light blocking glasses. @moonspecs sent me these and I wear them all day! Eye protection ✔ Easier time falling asleep ✔ Cute glasses ✔ Also they are giving my followers 10% OFF using my code LILLYSEAY. #ad
2. Posture corrector. It's easy for me to get focused and my posture looks like the letter U (😂) . So I wear a posture corrector for at least 1 hour a day to keep my posture looking like an I (😂).
3. Ergonomical chair. I never knew how important the right chair is until I started getting lower back pain at work. Find your ride or die chair that always supports!
So take care of yourself, friend! Invest in the tools you need to stay healthy while working at a desk all day❤
What do you do to offset working at a desk all day?

What programming language(s) do you want to learn? Tell me in the comments👇🏼
Today, I will be working on @javaswift stuff. Very exciting things coming soon!
BTW, a language I want to learn is Dart for Flutter development. I'm very curious to see if it's similar to native Android development.
Let me know what you want to learn below👇🏼

Tell me if you think this is you👇🏼
- You've had a great app idea sitting in the back of your mind for a while.
Once people knew I was in app development, everyone started telling me about their app ideas. I think a majority of people have app ideas, but how many are actually brought into existence?
My number ONE reason for learning app development was to bring my ideas to life. The best feeling in the world is to take what was once a thought and turn into something you can use!
I encourage you to bring your ideas to life, even if it's hard, sloppy, not perfect, or not fully completed. Don't put your ideas on the back-burner, as every idea that you execute has the opportunity to change your life completely.
So, do you have an app idea?

Ring Catch Chain Trick: a solid ring will be caught by a loop of chain if it tumbles during its fall. By Newton's Third law, when the ring twists into and hits the chain, the impact transfers momentum to the end of the chain, which rises up and over the ring- seen here at about 6x slow motion. ➡️ Follow the link in my profile for info on where to get this device and other amazing items featured here on @video.world_1_

Centripetal Kinetic Toy: seven rolling steel balls hug to the inside of the acrylic sphere given sufficient velocity. Here the balls are launched such that their orbits are in the same plane, and due to their angular momentum (and a torque due to gravity) the plane of rotation precesses like the axis of a spinning top until friction slows them down. This toy was made in 2007 (sadly no longer in production) and marketed under the name "iBall". ➡️ Follow the link in my profile for info on where to get most of the amazing items featured here on @video.world_1_

How many hours do you spent looking at screens in a day?
Phones 📱.... Laptops 💻... TVs 📺... Computers 🖥...
For me, it's 13 hours! Can you believe it? 13 Hours!?
I usually sleep for 8 hours, so that leaves me with only 3 hours being awake without looking at screens 😳.
Recently, I've made lots of effort to reduce the time I use technology to a minimum because I don't want my whole life revolves around screens.
If you can relate, read my latest blog post to see the five ways you can limit your use of technology effectively 🖤 (Link in bio)
How about you? What's your screen time? 👀
Uber is building the future of aerial ridesharing. If all goes according to plan, Uber Air flying taxis will take off in Dallas, Los Angeles, and Melbourne in 2023, the company announced at its annual Uber Elevate Summit. Think of it like Uber Pool in the sky (but definitely not as cheap). The electric VTOLs (vertical take-off and landing vehicles) are similar to a helicopter, and will carry four passengers at low altitude from skyports in each metro area. Test flights are slated to begin next year—with cautious FAA approval. The agency's acting administrator Dan Elwell spoke at the conference Tuesday and shared his thoughts on Uber Air in a string of tweets. he short flights will start at $5 per mile, so a 20-mile trip would add up to about $100. Eventually the cost will go down, Uber Elevate officials anticipate.
