It has been a hectic month. I started a client project that took over much of my time. I went to Gen Con Indy 2022, where I taught some games in the mornings and attended events in the evenings. Then I came back and tested positive for covid. Even though everyone at Gen Con needed proof of vaccination and masks were required, I still managed to get it. It was my first time getting covid this entire pandemic and I 10/10 do not recommend. It laid me out for almost 2 weeks and the only things I ingested were tea and soup. I was soup. Soup was me 🥣 🍵
I took last week to get back on track and reset. Even though I am still learning React and have yet to code my portfolio website, I want to start applying for jobs. In preparation, I have added a ReadMe to my GitHub portfolio and have pinned some projects. I also added a ReadMe to the pinned projects. If anyone has ideas on what else I can add to my ReadMe, please let me know! It feels a little bare.
while feel intuitive.
I am feeling more normal and less fatigued. I am ready to get back into coding and engaging with folks again.
I started reading Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. There is a lot of mystery and intrigue built up by the author. Even though I have seen all of the Jurassic Park films SEVERAL times (yes, including the Jurassic World films - I know they are not great but I really love any movie where a scary beastie 🦖 goes around eating people), I am still hooked and can't wait to keep reading. I can see why so many people love this book.
- Complete lessons 8 - 12 of my React course. This is maybe ambitious, but I really want to jump back in and get things done.
- Apply to three jobs. I am planning on significantly increasing the number of jobs I apply to each week, but I need to start small right now.
