Things have been hectic in Quarkus in 2021 for everyone involved - and therefore it is important, when contributing to such an active project, to listen to good music.
Luckily I have rediscovered the music and songs of Bruce Springsteen and his band. Of course I've heard it before, I bought a CD with his best songs about 10-15 years ago, but somehow listening to it did not inspire me back then, not sure if it happened to you at some point as well.
But something has changed this year. I have bought a new set of CDs and started listening to Bruce Springsteen again, sometimes when I was coding but more often when driving after work when I can make the music very loud 😀.
It is amazing how much power, energy and positive messaging is emanating from so many of Bruce Springsteen's songs.
I honestly don't understand how I managed before without listening to them. I feel energized after it - and I start looking to the next day of exciting coding even if it was busy today in Quarkus. I'm anything but tired when I work with Quarkus 😀.
And I hope all of you who have discovered and started embracing Quarkus have felt the same this year.
Happy Christmas and New Year to All. Enjoy !
