Finally, a Personal Website!

I created my first blog when I was just 12 years old, inspired by my father who is a journalist, columnist, and human rights activist. The blog served as a modest experiment, allowing me to share intriguing discoveries and insights with others.

It was around that time I started to learn programming, and things got a bit busy to keep up with the blog. Despite the busyness, the desire to establish a personal website persisted within me, though its realization remained elusive.

Then I started MIT and was pretty sure I would make a website in the first semester. I was soon drinking from the firehose, so the aspiration was postponed yet again. When this semester began almost a month ago, I bought this domain to force myself to make a website. In my todo list, I created a "make barish.me" task for the next day. MIT being MIT, every single day I had to push the task to the next day. Finally, it happened! Funnily enough, I'm writing this post not on the day I made this website, but much later due to the same reasons.

With the launch of this website, I now possess a platform to share an array of subjects close to my heart — personal anecdotes, unconventional ideas, technical notes, musings on software, and much more. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of time to write. I often jot down my thoughts in various corners, although a tendency to erase them in hindsight has become a persistent habit. This website is my attempt to break free from that habit and provide a stable repository for my reflections and creations. Here's to hoping that it fosters discipline and creativity, allowing me to share more with you in the days to come.

I'm excited to see where this journey takes me.
