a note for the four or five (or maybe zero or one) people who read this blog..
since i’m mostly posting links lately, and i’d really like to be able to tag and retrieve links at a later date, i decided to do a little upgrading:
it has things like…
I tweaked the color scheme and added a few things to the layout (mostly to fix some editing and to add a link back to my main site), and maybe i’ll even submit a pull request when i clean up the code.
on a personal note (and I’m writing this here because the blog link is officially removed from my portfolio, even if it still exists for those who go looking for it), i’ve given up on tech work for now and maybe forever. i have a part-time job that’s going well, although it’s not very technical (though I did get to teach myself how to script in windows powershell in order to Get Some Shit Done, because i didn’t want to do it the old fashioned way). these people appreciate the work i do, they’re flexible when i need flexibility, and this seems to be turning into a long-term opportunity. it would be nice to have benefits and a steady paycheck, but in this gig economy, i’m just grateful i have a permanent, if irregular, job.
i’ll use this site/host for play for now (Shaarli was a good experiment tbh), and i’ll probably update the portfolio/resume/cv at some point in the near future… and it sure would be nice to get some fun wordpress gigs someday, but for right now?
for right now i’m going to focus less on trying to get into an industry that doesn’t want me, and focus a lot more on survival and self-care.
