This post is based on the chronological order, latest first, of the photos on my phone. The title would be:
"Things That Programmers Should Know"
Programmers should know the importance of accuracy. He needs to be precise on his code's variables and constants, a minor miscalculation might end into something more serious.

Programmer's should know how to draw. It doesn't need to be good, as long as it can help you understand your case and problem easier, even the worst doodle can save you later on. Remember that crayons are better than keyboard when starting a program.

Learn the latest trends and techniques. There are lots of ideas scattered around you, learn how to pick-up the new things, they are better than old buggy ones.

But it doesn't mean that new ones are the answer to your problem, some of them are untested so learn to take risks. But, always remember the first tip.

Math isn't your enemy, sometimes they are your best weapon. Don't be afraid with x and y, they are unknown. Remember that things you don't know won't hurt you. :p
|Doodle of my algorithm - it really helps if you draw and analyze it on paper|
Learn to value life. Sometimes you really need to get off your code in order to breathe in. Life doesn't need to end on your program. Live healthy. Be happy. Socialize with others.

Learn to do candid. Expect the unexpected. There are things that would come to you at different times -- both good and bad. Expect this things to come and always prepare for it.
|I accidentally press the capture button and never thought that I was taking a picture of myself.|
Believe me! I wasn't prepared in here :p
Learn how to smile. Remember that there is nothing impossible for programmers. Sooner or later your code will work the way you want it, patience is the key.
|My smiling pen :)|
Eat well. Programmers are human too, we can't think well if our stomach is empty.
Find an outlet for yourself. Just like any other job, programming is stressful.
|My pen collection - it's now more than 220 pieces|
Hack your way out. If things don't go well still, learn to find a way to tweak it the way you wanted your code to be. The word brute force would be useless if you won't use them sometimes. Just like a gamer who needs to surrender on cheats to proceed to the next level.

That's it! My phone gallery picture story. I hope you learned something. :)
