You are probably here because you want to be more efficient on the command line but are not sure where to begin. We need to start by having a dedicated place to put aliases, and that place is `~/.bash_aliases`. Let's figure out how to do that.
How many commands, long or short, do you type multiple times a day? Could you be more efficient on the command line? I learned from early on, and I am still learning that I was not utilizing the tools I had to make me a competent terminal user. Having already used many aliases, I wanted to know what patterns and commands my day consisted of, so I set up a couple of tests.
