Although often overshadowed by the Ancient Greeks, the Ancient Romans also had a rich culture and produced many must-read books

  As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, one of my goals in life is to   be well-read . I’m making a list of the books I feel that I need to read to achieve that goal, and the ancient Greeks and Romans are definitely on that list. A while back I wrote a post titled, “17 Must-Read Books by the Ancient Greeks”, and now in this post I enumerate the must-read books by Ancient Romans. Specifically, the ancient Roman philosophers.

Therefore, I’m going to start by giving you some brief highlights of Roman history. Then. I’m going to share with you the books by ancient Roman philosophers that are must-read.

Easy Ways to Save Money

  Building healthy money habits can take time. But like making any new lifestyle change, it's good to start small with things you can do every day. A 2019   report   compiled by GOBankingRates based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that on average, Americans spend $164 per day. This was across 15 categories, both essential and otherwise, such as rent, groceries, dining out, clothes, and entertainment. The report found that   millennials spent the most overall —$208 every day—compared to the other age groups. Gen Z had the lowest amount, spending an average of $92 per day. While some of the categories were essential, there were areas—such as getting takeout—where there was an opportunity to cut back on spending. Spending money for your basic needs such as food, gas, and rent are valid and unavoidable–but there are ways to lower your overall spending so can put more money towards retirement, a house, investments, or your emergency fund.

The Kaomoji Emojis List for everything

If someone tells you they’re a Donger enthusiast, they’re not a pervert, but rather someone who enjoys “a set of unicode characters assembled to form a text emoticon.” That’s the definition according to  Get Kaomoji , a comprehensive collection of text emoticons for almost every occasion.   Ever since ¯_(ツ)_/¯ rose to power, you might have felt pressure to step up your text emoticon game and ascii game.

Parsing dates in Go

Ensure the reference time ("Mon Jan 2 15:04:05 -0700 MST 2006") is used in layout string. For example: package main import ( "fmt" "time" ) func main () { goodLayout := "January 2 2006" if t , err := time. Parse (goodLayout, "March 10 2019" ); err != nil { fmt. Printf ( "%s\n" , err) } else { fmt. Printf ( "%v\n" , t) } badLayout := "January 2 2009" if t , err := time. Parse (badLayout, "March 10 2019" ); err != nil { fmt. Printf ( "%s\n" , err) } else { fmt. Printf ( "%v\n" , t) } } 2019-03-10 00:00:00 +0000 UTC parsing time "March 10 2019" as "January 2 2009": cannot parse "19" as "009"

Then, while watching others writing, I ran into a retrospective like this. I really don't think I have done anything other than work or GDG this year.
