Meme transcription:

Bro, just one more bug fix, I swear. The base design is good, promise. This is just a simple bug that I need to fix. It doesn’t require redesigning my approach. I know I’m calling the same function 8 times to get the same data each time, but that’s just this one time, bro. I know they’re asynchronous functions and loading now takes 300ms, but this is just during development, bro. I know I’ve inlined about 7 different things that should be seprate, but that was necessary to fix the previous last bug. I swear, I’m almost done. This is the last bug to fix, bro.

Measure once, cut 38 times.

My general tip (disclaimer: i am generally a newbie): don't be afraid of rewriting code, if you bodge one thing it will get you later twice over

And add unit tests to trivialize this process!
