~work, failure Show more
Turns out I still have a problem normalizing failure.
My last big project failed, AND there have been successful ones before that. Not “but”. “And”. The failures are just as valuable, if not more so.

The impostor syndrome is strong today. Spent the last release-process meeting pontificating on how to run a big software project successfully. When the topic of how to train/share the updated process with other teams came up, the mod jokingly suggested having me run each team for a week.
My last big project failed, but there have been successful ones before that. My first thought: “How long before everyone figures out I don’t know what I’m talking about?”
Aaaand we are back from con and being treated to All The Meows and All The Bonks, feat. Gazebo.
It was a good con, even if I didn’t really feel like I knew what I was doing most of the time. I did get to catch up with folks I haven’t seen in a while, and met a few new folks too, which is always good.
I never have enough time, space or energy for everyone, and there were a bunch of folks I missed, but so it goes. Just need to do better at staying in touch.
This has been the Con of Crossing the Streams. Just ran into my cousin’s son, whom I have literally known since he was a baby, and our cat sitter (who is a very sweet retired 4th-grade teacher who lives in our same complex) emailed me this morning like, “oh are you at Furcon? We were just there with our friend’s daughter, it seems so fun!”
Surrounded by cutes once again :3 #subtoot
Oh fun! Phone spammers are now calling twice in quick succession to get around do-not-disturb blocks. That’s like the third time this week, too.
At what point does this start to become a safety concern? If I can’t even have do-not-disturb allow double calls thru, how does the fire department call me if my parents are in a car accident or something? Seems like I have little recourse but to start yelling at anyone who tries this. :/
Cat. Herder of software engineers. Writes code, plays games, optimizes everything. An SJW who puts principle before party. Pan/cis/boy.
