I suggest to add a "-c, --change_dir" flag to mkdir.
This could shorten commands such as "mkdir awesome_dir && cd awesome_dir".
I tried looking if someone has already made this suggestion and
couldn't find any.

If someone thinks it's a good idea I am willing to work on a patch.

It wouldn't work within mkdir, because as soon as that process exits
the working directory would revert back to that of its parent.
I use the following function, setup in my .bashrc:

  md () { mkdir -p "$1" && cd "$1"; }
