Updates for the week ending on November 29th
- Been practicing Rust with exercism.io, and it's been fun. The mentoring feature is very hit or miss though, sometimes they're quick and sometimes they never seem to respond at all. I chalk that up to Rust being kind of niche.
- Got through the Elm intro tutorial! Wow, that thing is surprisingly dense!
- Started mentoring Ruby on exercism.io!
- Forked plasma, since the owner has decided to write a Java implementation of a Matrix server instead
- Worked on some open issues in matrix-org/dendrite
- I really don't want to relocate. I recognize that I'm probably going to have to, but I really don't want to
- Got a couple of interviews with LA based companies! Maybe I don't have to relocate after all
General life stuff
- I picked up a Juul, because I'm tired of feeling self-conscious about fogging up a room with my regular vape. Another step backwards in quitting, which I had actually managed during my recent psychotic episode (which probably caused the episode, if I'm going to be honest)? Yeah, but damn, ya know, maybe next time will stick.
- Had two social nights in a row! I shared Upstream Color with T and her girlfriend and started watching HBO's Watchmen with L, R, and L's roommate. I'll knit my friendship circle together if it's the last thing I do in California.
- Cleaned the outer part of the bathtub!
- I came out to the research professor I worked with years ago! And he accepted me!!
- I decided to get into tea, very formally. Apparently I need to check out genmaicha
