Two months in twenty minutes worth of bullets.

  • Work lately has been annoying. I like the beginnings and scheming of projects, and right now I'm on the never-ending last mile of two big projects. There's a light at the end of the tunnel, but it's faint and flickering. I'm hoping that once they're done, I'll be able to clear a chunk of my brain/time to turn my cognitive surplus towards something interesting and mostly useless to me (for now). progreddit has tempted me Erlang for a few months now. Seaside could be a good excuse to learn Smalltalk. Alternatively, the masochist in me craves an excuse to write something in C. I fear working almost exclusively in PHP and Ruby for a while is making my brain soft! I also have some half-completed lightweight web frameworks I've been writing in PHP and Ruby which with some love and care can fill some niches that I think need attention.
  • Netflix is amazing and has turned me into a TV junkie. When I need to veg out, my hobby over the past few months has been watching entire TV series online via Netflix. I never remember to mail in my DVDs, but the online viewer make the subscription worthwhile.
  • The future is uncertain. A year from now, I will most likely living by myself for the first time ever. A terrifying prospect for someone who loathes change as much as I do. Yet, if change must happen, perhaps it would be best to stick a bunch of changes together and rip them off like a band-aid. For the past few years, I have toyed with the idea of one day leaving the Greater Philadelphia region. Next June, I see myself having very few things binding me here. At the same time, I do not crave another particular venue. How peculiar it is to have little reason to leave yet little reason to stay.
    If I had to summarize my last two years with a single word, the word would be "adrift". I can feel that a huge shift is coming and a chapter of my life is coming to a close. It is horrific, unavoidable, and completely welcomed.
