JavaScript Defer & My Ignorance

In my programming travels, I have never seen this before until now…

The W3C states;

When set, this boolean attribute provides a hint to the user agent that the script is not going to generate any document content (e.g., no “document.write” in javascript) and thus, the user agent can continue parsing and rendering. https://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/interact/scripts.html#adef-defer

It’s pretty fun learning something new every day.

Oddities

I reflected a little bit today on the 45 year journey I have taken and where I am now. Ups and downs, highs and lows. Oddities of life as they came my way. Battling alcohol and drugs, depression, and divorce.

There have been a lot of people that have come and gone in my life, professionally and personally. There are many people that professionally, I could have done a better job, moments of reflection make me think of those situations.

All it boils down to is doing the next right thing and being a better human being. For the last six months, things couldn’t be any better. I have everything I need. If I had everything I wanted, I know I wouldn’t be happy. Things happen for a reason.

Professionally, I have an amazing job that affords me the luxury of being so family friendly and flexible it boggles my mind. I’m not trapped into thinking if I need time off, I am petrified to ask because I am afraid I may be fired.

Personally, I haven’t felt this way ever. Happy. At peace. Content. Sure, life has its moments, tonight was one of those nights where what I have learned in the last three years of my sobriety, I don’t have to react, or overreact. I can just be the best father, son, friend and colleague I can be.

I have pretty much given up the dream of working in a professional development firm doing what I love to do. Make things happen on the web. I live in the day and only have the 24 hours I am afforded this day.

It’s these “oddities” that make me grateful to be where I am today. I call them oddities because I have never had it this good. I hope if you’re reading this, the same can be said for you.
