yesterday my mom gave me a gift: a praying mantis egg sack. I didn't know that this was in the set of possible gifts.

so it is in my fridge. 2-4 weeks after I take it out hundreds of praying mantis will hatch and I will spread them about the yard.

my roommate keeps losing his key and banging on the door at 3am. last night I hazily realized what the banging was and went back to sleep. I feel genuinely bad though, it shouldn't matter how many times this happens, I should let him in. I know some people will say "that'll teach him a lesson" but deliberately leaving him outside at night is passive aggressive as fuck. i don't want to be a passive aggressive jerk. i wish id let him in.

Self care for perfectionists looks really different than most people expect:

1. Emailing back to say no, even if you've been procrastinating for two weeks.

2. Ignoring your inbox to go for a walk.

3. Recognizing people have needs, but that doesn't mean you have to be the one to fullfill those needs.

4. Taking time to document and celebrate your accomplishments.

5. Asking, "What if I didn't do that?" and accepting that there will always be something that needs to be done that won't be done.

.. so i built a pi cluster. and bought a microscope.

is pretty cool. Spin up fancy Js dashboard websites with just a few lines of code.

is awesome. i love how theres modules for so much already. and so many scripts. also it's on every windows pc and is usable mostly on linux too depending on what you use.

I'm thrilled at my new job. I just keep hoping it's not an elaborate trick. Will be fun to work on real software, I just hope I'm good enough to contribute. :pineapple:

So Person of Interest is actually a pretty fun show.

This is bleak as F- and insanely well written, you should keep it open in a tab while you learn to code.

"Your flesh is already obsolete. But there’s an answer: to survive in the coming era of automation, you have to bring it in faster; announce its apocalypse, learn to code, add yourself to the army of programmers building an appier tomorrow."

Pro tip: People who are actually concerned about freedom of speech are also concerned about the freedom to RESPOND to speech.

If your position is "I should be able to say whatever you want without reprisal or consequence", you're not a freedom-of-speech advocate, you're a toddler.

"Splitting (also called black-and-white thinking or all-or-nothing thinking) is the failure in a person's thinking to bring together the dichotomy of both positive and negative qualities of the self and others into a cohesive, realistic whole. It is a common defense mechanism used by many people.[1] The individual tends to think in extremes (i.e., an individual's actions and motivations are all good or all bad with no middle ground)."
