2015.02.23 – Distractions, Distractions

I spent most of the day jumping from one thing to another. It seemed like my day was full of distractions and interruptions. I read about localStorage and localForage since I’ll be needing to mess with localForage soon. I didn’t make any progress on my pull request since it was Monday and it seemed to be a busy day for just about everyone. Lunch was fantastic and a very welcome interruption though. We had dumplings from The Dump Truck. Soooooo good!

After lunch, Jordan came over to Mozilla and worked on some sort of picture album app. A couple of his classmates came down later and we talked a lot about learning to program, fears about finding an employer willing to give us a chance as newer developers, the awfulness of writing resumes and cover letters….I wish I could just stay at Mozilla! Not because it would be easier but because I love what they are about and I really enjoy the people I work with. It was really interesting to talk to these younger guys because they are all about the money. They were talking about how it’s really important to switch jobs every year or two in order to maximize income. I’m so not in the same place at all. I want to work somewhere that I love, learn a lot, do a kick-ass job, and just settle in. Job happiness is so much higher on the list for me than money.

When I got home I worked on the scarf I am making. I’m almost done! We had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner and then I watched a couple of episodes of The Big Bang Theory. Andrew was busy setting up ownCloud so I can get rid of Dropbox so no Dr. Who tonight.

Today I learned that Wayne doesn’t like it when I send a news crew to the house without asking him first. Pesticide Free Overlook.
