oh wow. Every time I think to myself "tonight I won't be exhausted", I do something like miss my bus stop and end up with a longer walk home than expected, and still end up exhausted.

(It was nice though, detoured and got some useful stuff along the way)

Been in new job a month. I've been sort-of-deliberately sort-of-not been careful about how I dress: mostly tshirts, jeans, minimal makeup. But I think by now I've proven I can *rock* it. So on the way home today I bought some happy-colored nailpolish. It's time to femme it up!

(It's not that coworkers would have judged me; but I want to avoid adding to any potential unconscious bias, especially if I was going to fail at any point. You all know what I mean.)

Oh huh. I keep thinking I've been at new company only a couple weeks, but it's now actually been almost a month.

I've finally settled into the point where I can start *thinking* about other things, which was not the case before.

Especially the first couple weeks, I'd go to work, and well, work. And then I'd come home and read about work-related stuff -- either background in healthcare, or something about the specific technology stack we're using.

And now I feel a little like a swimmer surfacing from a deep dive and taking that first really deep breath of air. It's nice :)

Today I actually cooked dinner for myself (sort of). I've been interested in making the marinated eggs you find in ramen. I haven't had the ability to think about cooking in so long... and now I'm back. It's back. I boiled the eggs, made a marinade of soy sauce + rice vinegar + sugar, threw it in the refrigerator, and tomorrow I shall have something to eat. Hopefully delicious!

If it goes well, I may do a batch of it for breakfasts. Or I may not. WHO KNOWS.

On Monday I'm headed to New York for work! I'm excited :) I haven't been before. I'm staying in NY, but spending the bulk of my day at the office in Jersey. (Jersey City? New Jersey? I can't figure it out).

I don't have any plans, except to maybe get some New York pizza. Maybe also wander around. I think my chances of the first are lots more likely than my chances of the second.

Manager of engineering to someone just before I left work: "Go home, it's Friday!"

My team lead on Yammer as I was cooking dinner: "What are you all still doing online! Stop working it's the weekend"

(I'm pretty sure *they're* both still going to work though :p)

(I am rather liking this place though. It's just been a week so who knows, but I am tentatively happy.)

Halo-halo. Made personally just the way it should be :)

(Technically it's not because we used sausage instead of octopus -- but it came out pretty well!)

The us supreme court decision on marriage! omg. omg. I've only read snippets but the ones I've seen have made me tear up with how strong and definite they are. No wishy-washy "well there's technically no legal reason we couldn't..." but just outright saying that this is the right way to treat people. Empathy? Love? Fuck yeah.

I've seen so much happiness today, feel warm and mushy.

The ones where it's like "two 80-year-olds who have been together x years" make me tear up the most because asdfhfhfh to have been denied that for so long but then to have it within their lifetimes. I don't understand being able to look at them and still deny that they love one another and have made a life together. They've already made the lifetime commitment; being able to go to the courthouse to have the government formally acknowledge that doesn't change anything within their relationship, but it changes so much everywhere else. (And I wish it could have come sooner, but I'm glad that it happened *now*).

(I am so looking forward to SF Pride parade this Sunday. First time I'm able to attend; seems like a good year to go! My brother is all "wave a flag for me" :D)

This feeling? I think it's contentment. I think it's love.

Mwahaha, my pull request to enable HTTPS Everywhere on all DW subdomains has just been merged. They were super nice and quick about it.

(All the delay was on my part because I was travelling over the weekend so didn't submit the pull request until now).

Just need to figure out when it becomes publicly available and then maybe I can post over on [personal profile] fu :)

testing

oh I see why HTTPS Everywhere is not triggering on DW. Somenoe's written a ruleset that disables it, probably because HTTPS didn't work before.

(But as far as I know, there shouldn't be anything breaking any more)

I cannot yet figure out how to get it updated though. Hmmm.

All settled in

I have now fully unpacked and put all my things into their proper places (including the things I'd mentally tagged miscellaneous that I'd tucked into my carryon) (including the yarn I'd somehow picked up on my travels).

Status update

I'll be in the Bay Area for the foreseeable future.

If you're in the area too, I'd love to meet up <3

Power came back :) I feel a bit silly posting the previous entry now -- figured once darkness hit the power company would be forced to stop working because of how dangerous it isn't, so I went and posted expecting to be gone another night.

But they've exceeded my expectations! I feel super grateful to them now. Power come to meeeeee
