Weeknotes, spring

It feels weird to fire up the old personal website blog after straight up ignoring it for five months.

What's happened?

Destiny

Probably the most significant life update is that I started playing Destiny 2. I don’t recommend reaching my comically horrific levels of obsession, but otherwise D2 is very fun and I enjoy it far more than I thought I would. I’ve made new friends playing it and regularly socialize with people in voice chats now, which is quite nice during the pandemic.

Funemployment

Just kidding. This is a bigger life update: I left my job! I am moving back into my main career interest, which is doing stuff with websites. That’s what I was most interested in doing during my last role, so it’s what I want to focus on next.

I think of web development as pretty intimidating—on good days, I’m confident in my ability to learn anything (skills can be learned); on bad days, I’m convinced that I am too stupid and I will never be good enough to do this. It’s a roller coaster. Usually the bad days are stronger and more frequent than the good ones, so it’s a bit of a battle to get over them. It be like that sometimes.

Keycaps

I’m designing a set of keycaps called DSA Gardenfall. This has been exciting to bring to life, with the help and support of many people.

Side projects

There are quite a lot of projects I would like to work on, some more aspirational than others. I’ll list them here even though I feel silly doing so:

  • Latte dot works is my keyboard website
  • Anh dot codes is my dumping ground. I would like to use it more
  • Destiny garden is my indulgent diary site. I’d like to use it to store more permanent knowledge that I currently keep in Notion.
  • Think and write more about the website site that I want.
