Mid year stream of thought

It has been a while since I have written anything longer than two tweets. I notice that I have over ten drafts I’ve not looked at in months, which probably means that they’ll never be published.

I’ve distanced myself from the local developer scene in the Dominican Republic. I feel ambivalent about this, but as it’s been about keeping my head down and working, and I’ve been doing just that, I feel content. I look forward to taming my most demanding endeavors in the near future and reacquainting myself with my local peers.

On the other hand, I’ve been interacting more with developers from overseas. It has been fun, being more exposed to developers from a different culture and using different technologies. Usually my work would involve people from either different culture or different technology, not the combo I’m enjoying right now. More data points to learn from.

My dear friend Lois has been posting poems on her site since around August 2017; I think some from 2018 were lost, sadly. I look forward to the 2nd anniversary of getting new poems every Friday.

Now, the hum of the servers quiets down, and I have nothing else to wait for. Back into the fray.

Before stopping I want to record I felt happy with Nintendo’s E3 announcements; that it’s been crazy juggling around a dozen projects (I don’t want to stop and count, really), but it’s been very fulfilling and fun to push the boundaries. Oh, and that it’s very important to have controlled temperature for work. No HVAC means lost efficiency, lost happiness, wasted time, and a general discomfort about existence when you have to work intensely.
