Now

Derek Sivers set up a website called nownownow.com to help people understand what a now page is, why you’d want one, and to showcase other now pages. Maybe you should build one, too.

Location

I live in Swatara Twp, PA.

Work

I was working as a junior frontend developer at ICF and am currently interviewing for new frontend or fullstack JavaScript roles. Interested in chatting? Check out my resume, portfolio which is being refactored, my GitHub or LinkedIn. Or, you can come say hi!

Fun Programming Side Projects

I am currently hacking on a static site generator using Ruby which has been challenging as I am not a Rubyist, so things are much different than what I am used to in JavaScript-land. I am also working on a Blitz.js ecommerce app to tinker with a full-stack, opinionated, web framework using React.js, Prisma, and Postgresql.

Latest Interests

I have cut down significantly on the projects I give my time to. Those that didn’t excite me or felt like a chore, I axed1 I am working on three blogs: this one, tiffany.blog, and my dev blog Tiffany R. White Blog.

My interest in filmmaking, fitness, and Twitch are the things I am focused on now2. My fitness blog is over at Scripting Fat Loss and my list of YouTube channels, Vimeo account, and Twitch account are below:

I’ve also become more interested in stoicism and minimalism as good practices for someone my age. Matt D’Avella’s YouTube channel, my own mortality and worsening health, and wanting to have financial freedom has really inspired me to make a change, even before the start of the new year.

Learning

I am currently still brushing up on JavaScript and getting more familiar with React. I am also learning GraphQL and soon Go at the start of the year.

Fitness

I am currently getting back into lifting weights by creating a habit, starting small at first and working my way up to full workouts. So far, so good.

Hobby

I’ve been trying to get back into photography as a creative outlet and excuse to get out of the house3.


There is only so much time in the day and I am lucky to have just my friends and no spouse or kids4. Focusing on what is important is key.

What are you doing? I’m curious by nature. Share it with me on Twitter. Or don’t. 🤷🏾‍♀️

  1. Distinguished Fat Loss is a blog but no longer a YouTube channel. Tiff Talks Tech is no longer a blog or a YouTube channel, and Good First Issue was something I was struggling to do as it was just me, no co-host, which sucked. It’s also extremely time consuming to edit and I just don’t enjoy editing voice audio.

  3. I absolutely do not get enough time away from my desk. So I’ve gone on one photo walk and plan on doing more, at least once a week. 

  4. Fine with that now and really I am too old to have kids which I still can but don’t want to. My terrible, very bad, no good, relationships have prevented me from dating and besides I am working on self-improvement, losing weight, getting healthy physically, mentally, and financially. Me comes first, ya dig?
