Here’s hoping that 2021 brings an end to the pandemic, and many more positive events as well!

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… 😃

I am unreasonably happy that I finally got a long enough ethernet cable to connect my laptop to my router. I finally have fast, reliable internet! I don’t know why I waited so long

It’s not over yet: Trump won’t leave willingly.

Nonetheless, I am very relieved.

Both had subtitles, but for some reason, the subtitles in “Mahakaal” were missing the letter “g” — but only for the musical numbers! As a result, we were treated to songs with lyrics like:

My heart is like lass
So don't break it
You miht find it hurts if you do
This world is aainst our lovin

Last night, I got together with some friends for a Halloween movie night, but the theme wasn’t horror — it was Bollywood! We saw “Cargo” (netflix.com/title/81297470) which was *awful*, and “Mahakaal” (youtube.com/watch?v=iqyPghobA5) which was unintentionally hilarious.

The way you cowards still won’t even suspend your Facebook accounts…

Getting more into cooking lately! Making my own pasta sauce 😋

It's nice that Mastodon doesn't try to optimize "engagement" by filling your email with notifications and reminders to come back. But at the same time, it means that most people who sign up never come back. Without reminders, people don't build new habits easily. I wish that more of my friends were active on here.

I’m learning Svelte, and it’s... not bad? I told myself I would wait until it has Typescript support, and now it does, so I’m giving it a shot
