Just finished the story for Control. That is one of the coolest games I’ve played in a while.


I know I’m turning this year because I can’t stop talking about how quiet my new garage door opener is (but it’s so quiet!)



Okay, this ADGQ run of Control has made me really want to play this game. This looks so rad.





I went to UNIQLO and got some of those sweatpants that look like jeans (and have all the same pockets). This is the energy I’m bringing into the new year.


Finally went through my mail and found a letter from a neighbor inviting us to join NextDoor. There’s something so anachronistic about that. Also I do not want to know what’s going on on there.


Kieran is spot-on here. Every single software job I’ve had has required me to grow into it. I wasn’t fully qualified for the work when I started, but you get there from hands on experience. Go for the job you want!



Haven’t finished it yet but book of the year for 2019 goes to Steel Crow Saga for sure. It has everything! Paul Krueger really nailed it, and you should all buy it and read it.


For me, 2019 was the year of The Adventure Zone. Never knew I could feel so strongly about a story. Thank you McElroys: you created something truly beautiful.



Kinda wild to see the extremely different reactions to Star Wars from folks on my timeline. This is going to be a very polarizing movie (I haven’t seen this one).



If I make it through these holidays without emotionally imploding it will be a miracle. Please just let it be January already.


I forgot that Drafts for Mac got updated with Actions support. OMG it’s so good! They all synced from my phone. It’s like magic.


What a blast! Spending the evening fixing my Node app to actually work with Node 12. I guess I had to leave Node 8 eventually.


We binged all of season three of the Dragon Prince last night! Love this show, hope there’s a fourth season coming.


Started a new work project this week, an internal docs site, and it’s taking all of my restraint to not work on it more this weekend.


I fell way behind on Advent of Code while I was in San Francisco last week, so I’ve gotta catch back up this weekend.


I got through about half of the performance reviews I needed to write before the deadline so that’s pretty good, right?


My Lyft driver is listening to AM radio and I honestly forgot that was a thing.


Coming to SF to see other Stripes in person so let’s kick that social anxiety into high gear.


I love that my dogs chase each other around the backyard, it’s super cute, but really I just want them to take a dump so I can go back inside to the warm place.



I decided to start Advent of Code a bit late, got through the first five days yesterday, finishing catching up today.


Genius Bar was able to just clean my sad MacBook keys and they seem all better, so I’m happy to not have to leave them my computer for a week. And I’ve got another year before they won’t fix it for free in case it happens again.


Guess I just don’t exist then.
