I’m buying an apartment in Amsterdam! So happy 🎉🎉🎉

My boyfriend got a new job! We had tea and cakes to celebrate 🎉

A week ago, the canals were frozen over and people were ice skating on them. Today, it feels like spring, and people are thronging in the outdoor markets and getting drunk on the streets.

Our world is weird and wonderful.

I created this "Maslow's hierarchy of jobs" about 20 years go. Iv'e found to be good guide for when was time to move on (or stay). If you're failing at one or more of the lower 5 levels (pay not likely to continue, getting paid but nobody cares what you do) might be time to find a more productive gig.

You probably won't see this from HR in goals setting and performance management sessions.

Lockdown mood. (sound on)

Strongly considering switching companies. Anyone looking to hire a Python/TypeScript full-stack web developer? Remote preferred.

You know, 2020 has been an awful year for many reasons, but there have been a few bright spots:

- I got engaged!
- Started taking my Dutch integration exams, making progress towards permanent residency and citizenship! (And I’ve already passed the first exam 🎉)
- Making plans to buy a home in the Netherlands, big enough for my fiancé and me to live together
- Work has been a bit bumpy at times, but I still have a good job, and I’m very thankful for that

Travis CI no longer supports open source. I’ve migrated all my GitHub repositories that used to use Travis CI onto GitHub Actions. I’ve been meaning to do that for awhile; this news finally spurred me into action.

I had my first Dutch inburgeringsexam today: the set of exams you need to pass in order to become a permanent resident or citizen of the Netherlands. It went really well! Next one is in a few days… I’m hoping I do just as well 🇳🇱

Dogs play the game where you don't let the balloon touch the ground. On a beach. I watched at least a dozen loops already and I'm not even close to done

This is one of the most powerful short speeches I’ve seen in awhile. Please, stay home.

Late last night, I beat Hades for the first time! Spear victory, 30th attempt. So happy! Thanks for the wonderful experience, Supergiant.

I might go back and try to beat the game with other weapons, too. After all, I need to see Persephone again… 😃
