Welp…It had to happen sooner or later. Last night, a code “improvement” I wrote for one of our rails dashboards broke everything and brought down production on our data stuff….cool cool cool. As I channel my inner Homer Simpson and try to battle of the SHAME I feel, I’m simultaneously taking a deep breath and … More Day 143: Baby’s first bring down Production
Ahhh–the sounds of a sunny, winter, pre-9AM weekend morning. I’m not sure why for the life of me I woke up at 8AM on this, a Saturday morning. As I reached out and clumsily felt for my phone to check the time, my eyes barely open and my head bursting from caffeine withdrawal, I quickly, … More East Facing Windows

They say that creatives frequently struggle to finish their artistic undertakings…so, does this technically make … More An Unsolicited Opinion on the Social Medias of Today (lol)

But, this year, … More Post-Thanksgiving Thanks
