  • ๐Ÿฅธ This mornings eye appointment went well. No diabetic issues. I did get a prescription for computer use and anxious to try it out. For my ongoing eye twitch issue, I was encouraged to continue to manage caffeine, sleep and stressโ€”as well as to eat more potassium. ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ

  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ I think a productive personal theme for next year is to improve my cooking skills.

    Tonight I started specifically considering a few cookbooks that hopefully can help shape my extremely junior experiences into something more productive.

    Suggestions welcome. Thanks!

  • ๐ŸŽ„ Spent some time yesterday and today cleaning the house and putting up some Christmas decorations.

    Also ordered some more furniture; a TV stand, fireplace mantle and a bookshelf for my office.

    The new house is shaping up.

  • ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ I know I have not been the most productive person this week – how about this for a wake-up call:

    This morning, the YouTube algorithm suggested an 8-hour Mega Man lore essay for me.

    eight hours

  • ๐Ÿค“ Got my first pair of reading glasses today. They make a noticeable impact for books and my phone. Not sure about computer screens yet but I might need to fiddle with the strength.

  • ๐Ÿ’œ The ElixirConf talks are now on YouTube.

    A personal recommendation: Not a topic I sought out, but once I was in, the talk blew my mind. #MyElixirStatus

  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป Worked on my event-sourced Elixir side project today. It feels like things are starting to click. Feeling more confident about my coding style too – though there are chucks of repetition I’d like to pair down.

    Need to find open-source to compare against. #MyElixirStatus

  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป Tonight, while searching for an obscure docker error, I encountered a site that impersonated a legit open issue on GitHub.

    It faked the whole GitHub layout. I assume to try to convince someone to sign in should they want to comment in the thread.

    Be diligent out there.
