Week Notes 20#20

  • Had a really relaxed weekend:
    • Got basically zero chores done
    • Had a super sleepy Saturday - woke up late, spent most of the day watching Modern Family, and had just a nice time
    • Had a very frustrating delivery from Desi Downtown which kinda ruined the nice relaxed Saturday we were having - food arriving 2 hours after we ordered it, almost an hour after "it will be there in 10 minutes", isn't great. But food was lovely, so there's that
    • Had a nice catchup with the family on Saturday
  • Three meetups this week, but was fairly disappointed - low attendance/not the most engaging, wondering if that's just down to my state of mind this week
  • Did a few changes on my site - largely menu/usability related
  • Morph had the cutest little sneeze attack the other day, about 6 in a row
  • Started to watch Modern Family
  • Watched The Man from U.N.C.L.E. which was definitely not what I expected, but was pretty good. Made me think I should really rewatch Atomic Blonde
  • Not much reading this week - it's been pretty busy with late nights, so haven't wanted to read, too, but just get to bed
  • Further blog post to be written but migrating between GitLab CI and Netlify build pipelines has sunk a fair bit of my time, for not much reward, it seems
  • Further blog post to be written, but spent some time doing some string parsing with Ruby that made me feel like I was in a whiteboard interview
  • Found listening to the song radio for Beyond the Heliosphere (mentioned in last week's notes) during work to be super helpful for relaxing
  • Had a few nice walks
  • Got my first prod deploy for the shared library - yay!
  • Enjoying Season 5 of Apex Legends so far, as things have definitely changed a lot, and enjoying playing Mirage's new setup (although I'm a big Mirage fan anyway) and Loba's been quite a fun change to the game
    • Been a little pressured to get the treasure packs each day, which is especially painful having to reboot to play it - maybe PCI passthrough will finally happen?
  • Friday wasn't my most productive day, so I found myself playing a game of Apex during lunch - first time I've done a mid-day game!
