Random thing you loathe right now.

Sorry to hear Anti. Saw your post on Corona tales and if it's any help this internet stranger is pulling for you.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I actually put this here in between my two posts over there. I didn’t yet know about the results…

I genuinely don't know a person IRL who isn't.

This so much. My wife is a high school teacher and has seriously been considering moving to a different line of work.

Yeah, we can all disguise it to some degree. But a little thing here or there can cause a burst of emotion in an instant. Sometimes I use music as a trigger because the release of the emotion is more important than what type it is. Something like "Hello" from Adele, or a long lost hit from the 80's gets the job done. (Morrissey's "Suedehead" for example)

Not knowing how to reach more people / get more reactions in general on social media for my small business "venture" without turning into an A-hole? Even thou I know what I'm sharing is cool and people seem to like it when they accidentaly get exposed to it, I feel like it's a 90 degrees, vertical battle to scratch even the simplest interaction out of the internet nowadays, let alone growing your "audience", etc.

Oh..., and Covid-19, I loathe that right now as well as my wife and I seem to have it at the moment (both vaccinated already, not big deal we seem to be getting out of it without problem)

Its probably that you are diving in head first into the swirling masses that are getting bombarded with nonsense.

I think not being an ass on social media while promoting something is a skill. You might want to look into online marketing or social media classes. They should help you target better so you don't have to become something that you are not.

Spent three days trying to setup a program for debugging to find the actual problem.

Actual problem is one line of code commented out.

Glad it's a long weekend.

Snow and cold. I live in Minnesota, its unavoidable, sigh.

Unit tests, my dude, always unit tests.

Unit tests spotted the problem. Need to step through locally to find the cause. Which was the pain.

I will say I like how test heavy my new company is. Seems much more stable code for it

Over the last year or so since the pandemic began, so many teachers in my wife's district have retired or left. It's really, really bad.

Had my first covid dream the other night. Dreamt I was visiting my parents, walked into the living room, and my mom was under a blanket in the recliner. As I'm standing there, breathing the air in the small living room of their house, that's when my dad tells me she tested positive.

Worst part is, most of my dreams are usually pretty abstract - nothing really resembles reality precisely, and is usually well far off. This dream was dead-on accurate for setting and my parents.

Sure isn't helping that so many articles are basically saying, "Well, we're all gonna get omicron."

Even if that's true, stop saying it. It just gives the anti-mask, anti-vax crowd even more excuses. f*ck me.

The trick with burnout is to acknowledge it and start saying "No" to the tasks that continue it. You have to switch over to me-time being your priority for at least a few months. This can be difficult, but the payoff is immense as you settle into a routine that is less damaging. To me, this was part of continuous learning to adult, in my late 40's, but I guess the earlier you learn it, the better. Self-care is best care.

2021 was a terrible year for my family. My uncle died, then my dad had a stroke that ultimately caused his death a few months later.
I was hoping 2022 would give me a bit of a breather, but my now my mother is in the hospital with a cough, phlegm, and low oxygen saturation so we're either dealing with covid or aspiration pneumonia or something. The aspiration pneumonia is a possibility as she has extremely advanced frontotemporal dementia and it's gradually making it more and more difficult for her to eat safely.
I think I'm as well equipped to handle this as anybody (I chose my handle for a reason), and I've got a good support structure around me, but it's a lot.

Sorry to hear that WellAdjusted. Wishing you and your family some relief.
Vent away if it helps.
