To be clear: I like *actual* fall, not the Bay Area’s “fall that is hotter and fierier than summer” weird thing

Today I had an interview in downtown Mountain View. There were giant crunchy leaves all over the ground and the air was cool and breezy and aaaaaaaa I love fall

@Are0h yeah, I think from a sith perspective we can even see the whole imperial project as basically Palpatine wanting to maximise strife+suffering for his own ends, disaster capitalism style ('greed is good'='peace is a lie, there is only passion'??)–I can't imagine he ever saw himself has having alllies, just various playthings to smash into each other. Reminded of a really good in-universe style summation of that fan theory, in the form of an obituary for Leia Organa: mobunited.wordpress.com/2016/1

I just thought of a cake in the shape of a Hilbert curve to optimize for the best part of the cake: the edges, then I discovered someone already made it! I'm glad that there are brains out there that think about the same stuff as me.

for trans awareness week, GLAAD has made a great new resource called "a beginner's guide to being an ally to trans people". we've been sharing it at work, and I'm certain many of you have folks in your life who could benefit from it as well.

Or I could get so bored and burnt out I quit code and gtfo Silicon Valley and draw t-shirts for a living lol

I’m about to hit ~ten years of coding and I’ve felt kind of stagnant in my career for a while.

I don’t know what the next level above “darn good frontend dev” is—whether I need to move into product or management to have greater influence, or just go somewhere large and/or frontend-focused enough where a “mere” frontend dev can be a tech lead. All I know is going fullstack is not where my interests lie—I’m not allergic to backend code when needed but it’s not going to get me where I want to go.

I don’t have another job lined up yet (though I do have interviews scheduled)—interviewing while still working was just too hard to juggle.

Going to take some time off to recharge and figure out what I want to do next. Very lucky that that’s something I can afford to do! (Also an effort to confront my fears of going broke (again) head on.)
