i wanna build something. or take something apart. i've got that tinkerer's itch.

not ready for my weekend to be over. i feel like there was more i needed to get done, but i can't remember what it is.

i love my x120e for a light throw-in-my-bag laptop, but i'm seriously considering swapping an x201 motherboard into my x200 so i can have somehing more powerful to fill that niche. i am a little bit worried about how hot it'll get, though

music, synthwave goodness 

thank you shuffle gods for bringing this song to my attention — lime lagoon by phaserland: rossocorsarecords.bandcamp.com

i want to learn how to code collaboratively... all of the projects i've worked on have been solo or coordinated haphazardly or in an ad-hoc fashion. not sure where to start with that, though.

viewing my timeline in tootstream is kinda fun. the more stuff i can get done in the command line on this old netbook, the better :3

hiding from the omnipresent smoke inside of a coffee shop. it's weird seeing so many people out and about with filter masks.

self doubt, remote work 

i love my personal life and my mate and friends,and my primary concern is doing right by that. i'm finally not a complete trainwreck as a person. i need to focus on that.

self doubt, remote work 

but i've built a life, and i have bills to pay, and i don't have the savings or latitude or social capital or privilege to "reinvent myself", not that that would make my professional situation any better

once i get on the phone with folks, it's almost like i have the opposite problem — it's hard for me not to empathize, and if folks are angry i just kind of wither. i don't know if support/admin is the right path for me, but i don't know if i'm smart or disciplined enough for development work

telecommuting has had its benefits, but I think that only interacting with my users remotely has dampened my empathy somewhat. i know that some amount of distance is necessary to stay sane, especially with hostile customers, but i need to get better about understanding where people are coming from on the other side of an email
