I have meant to publish this for a while. This document is my rough post-mortem template that I use for outages.
I have meant to put together a post on what media I consume daily. It has changed a lot lately, so might as well now so I can compare later.
Sigh. The second quarter of 2017 is over. The year is halfway done. 2016 flew by at the speed of sound, so I didn’t get consistent reviews written, but this year, I’m trying to get back on the horse. More writing at a more steady pace!
I’ve been consistently failing to write these #happy posts. My excuses are long and varied, but none of them are good. Nor did their outcome compensate for the happiness these posts bring me. I’m starting a timer today while writing this. Just to prove to myself how long these take to write. So then, maybe I’ll get back to my weekly schedule.
Look at me! I’m writing a post on time!
Ok, I’m trying something. I’ve mentioned that I’m not reinstalling Twitter on my phone. So I’ve built a little Heroku App that emails you tweets from people you don’t want to miss a tweet from. It runs once a day, and returns just plain text tweets with as little formatting as possible.
I just realized I posted this on Facebook but not out to the wider world. So heads up, I’m making moves after three months of unemployment.
Ok, let’s do this. I was on a decent roll, but it wasn’t a good enough habit to withstand travel, or the pre-travel anxiety I guess.
Well the past few days have been… tragic. Depressing? Interesting? Unsurprising? I don’t know.
I’m in kind of a funk. A weird existential funk, thinking about jobs, the communities I’m apart of, what I want to accomplish with my life, etc. Interestingly enough, creating these #happy posts is a really easy way for me to get my mind off of things. My blog’s “new post” UI just provides me with a list of page titles (hence why I complain at people when they don’t have unique per page title tags). So I just slowly read through subject lines trying to remember what this post was I read sometime in the last ten days.
