JREAM is a project to express creative thoughts and ideas. Additionally, it offers advice primarily about building and creating things.
Topics may range from Technology, Programming, Art, DIY (Do it Yourself), and whatever else on the creative spectrum comes to mind.
JREAM is not so much a business operation currently. It's perhaps best described as a personal project of mine. I am Jesse by the way, nice to have met you.
If you need to reach Jesse, also known as the fellow typing this site. Contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll try to reply if I get time because the older we get the more responsibility we have!
I don't set a guaranteed reply within "X Days". Why? Funny enough, to date I still get a bit of email from a lot folks asking me to put aside weeks of time for free to either join a non paying venture with a possibility of promised equity (I can do this myself if I have to). The majority is to provide free one on one tutoring. I can't afford that, I hope that makes sense without sounding mean.
In 2005 the name/brand JREAM was created. Today, the internet has become a madhouse for how-to's and entertainment. In my opinion it's also a social media mess which isn't good for us.
Fun Fact: I never touted that JREAM was an acronym that sounds like the words "DREAM". Yet when I made it, it still stands for "Jesus Rules Everything Around Me" all these years. An easter-egg for anyone who's never known I suppose.
I think there are far too many distractions after a few website visits. By and large, the knowledge and content available is a crowded space. Does this mean I have nothing unique to say? Perhaps. I certainly feel that way, but I can't let what others do affect what I want to do.
This site is to motivate anyone, and/or inform them about topics I enjoy looking into. It is not only geared towards programming anymore.
I encourage all to turn off your mobile phone and live more by taking breaks by walking through nature and picking up new hobbies. I feel like all this technology eats away at life without us thinking twice.
A great book to read would be "Into the Woods" by Henry David Thoreau. One of his famous quotes are as follows:
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms..." - Henry David Thoreau
Take breaks from technology, do it often. You'll find yourself refreshed and happier over time, I promise. Thanks for stopping by.
