I finished The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone DLC last night. I absolutely loved it. I can’t figure out how to say more without spoiling, but it was my kind of story.


Trying out a new thing where I walk to the library near my house and work from there everyday, even if it’s only for a little bit. I think taking walks and changing environment is good for me.


Oh good, it’s not just me.



These are some good tips! Go’s JSON marshaling is powerful, but not so simple. I wish some of these behaviors were documented more clearly and all in one place.


The Good Place finale messed me up good. What a wonderful show.


People talk about how consistent Bernie’s positions have been over decades, but it honestly bums me out that we’ve progressed so little as a society that those same positions are still radical.

Bernie’s positions from the 90’s should look backwards by today’s standards.


I don’t really like attending tech conferences that much, but I do really like stickers and socks so what do I do?


Archive of our Own is an incredible feat of efficiency and I am actually amazed it exists.


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.
