finally got a job! I'm a Real Programmer™️ now!
working from home as a contractor and setting my own hours is a pretty sweet deal
I can't read "clitoris" without thinking of gilbert gottfried reading fifty shades
also I need to clean my mirror, rip
wearing a flannel and a wool coat, this is my aesthetic
upgraded my laptop with a SSD. everything's so much faster now!
one of these days I should probably try to learn proper OOP stuff so that I can use typescript without fumbling around so much
orrr I can just keep stubbornly throwing stuff against the wall until it kinda sorta works
you get one guess for what I'm gonna do

I'm just at the tail end of the millennials, born in 94. I remember 9/11 and the general state of paranoia/fear. I didn't understand it all until I was older, but I knew its impact. My mom was afraid for us
Another thing I remember was that my family used to go to the airport gate when my dad flew out and came back (he was in the navy). But after it, we had to go through security, and then later we stopped being allowed entirely
Amazing how it all changed
just wanted to share this paragraph I wrote for nanowrimo:
The toys on her floor mostly consisted of plastic bricks, which had the predictable effect of turning most of her room into a caltrop-ridden death trap. She, for her part, had a *system*. Which is to say, she had a path cleared that was just wide enough for her to walk from her door to her bed without subjecting herself to untold amounts of pain that any potential visitors would most likely experience. The rest of her room was fair game, with the little bricks of pure agony scattered around like she was expecting a cavalry charge.
been getting some nice work done on my forum software project, ECF. it now uses Argon2id instead of PBKDF2 for password hashing, I added an optimization for posts, simplified some stuff, added thread view counting... not many new features but it's moving along
though as usual I have no idea what I want to work on next
