Hi. I’m Alex Dresko and I love my life. My highest priorities are my hobby (mostly writing code), my health (mental and physical), and my home. More than anything, my goal with this website is to inspire, and you can fully expect that I’m going to attempt that by sharing my experiences as they relate to those priorities.
Health is my absolute highest priority. Without my health, I’d likely fail miserably at everything else. Physical health simply involves regular-ish exercise and eating healthy..ish. Maintaining my ideal mental state, on the other hand, requires near constant monitoring and tweaking of my brain’s output.
My primary hobby is writing code. Beautiful, clean, elegant code. And, fortunately, my hobby is also my job. That’s right. I’m one of those rare, annoying people who actually loves going to work! Needless to say, I spend a lot of time thinking about and writing code. It’s extremely important to me that I be able to write the best code I can, and if that means think about code while on the toilet, then so be it. To see my posts related to code, go here.
Rounding out my priorities is my home. Home, to me, is completely separate from work. Home includes my bills and the yard, but also my family and friends. Home is a responsibility not to be taken lightly.
In various ways, my health, my hobby, and my home are all closely intertwined. When one begins to fail, the rest follow suit. It’s about finding a balance and riding that gnarly wave called life. Hopefully, through this website, we can ride together.
