Learn about Regex Previewer, a helpful VSCode extension that allows you to test your Regex patterns with text characters

Hi everyone, I trust you had a great last week and weekend. Merry last month of the year 🎉
I’m sorry there wasn’t any newsletter last week. I had a lot ongoing and couldn’t settle down to write anything.
I also couldn’t publish a video on my YouTube channel. The funny thing is, I have a lot of ideas for YouTube content, but haven’t just settled down to piece them together…sigh
Well, here’s what I have for you today:
What I did last week(s) 😇
  1. I left the country for the first time, to Ghana. It was actually fun and frustrating at the same time. No access to the internet as I didn’t have a phone number. I had to depend solely on wifi in places…like the Airport’s wifi and my hotel’s wifi haha. And then, I also didn’t prepare so well for the currency differences. Took me a lot of time being stranded before I could finally get cedis. I hope to share my experience in a video soon.
  2. I visited the Accra Zoo. First time at the zoo, and I held a snake for the first time 😂 They said it rarely bites, and I saw small kids carrying it, so why not Dillion? I screamed when its mouth started getting close to my hands.
