Never ever did I think I'd earn this title. Imposter syndrome at it's finest!

Thank you for everyone's warm messages! Time to figure out where to go from here ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ’™

Finally โ€“ A New PC Upgrade!
I've decided to take the plunge and upgrade my streaming and now main gaming PC ๐Ÿ˜ Instead of doing a custom build and worrying about getting a GPU in stock, I went with an NZXT H1 Mini Pro PC build! It's the first time I've bought a pre-built system, so I'll give you my experience so far.

NZXT H1 PC alongside my widescreen Samsung monitor, Razer Blackwidow Elite kb, Logitech G502 mouse and Fuji

Time to Learn Again
In my previous career I was a systems engineer for a local managed services provider for the New York and New England area. I was on a path to becoming proficient in VMware and learning all about virtualization and server management. I loved it. I knew this is what I wanted to do at the time in my career. But like many, that path isn't always fulfilled and fast forward about 10 years...

Giving back all

I Love Protonmail
*This is not an ad, I just love this service

The past few years I paid for a Google Gsuite account because of familiarity with Gmail, ease of use and the fact that I could have an email account with my domain attached to it. I loved how nice it looked for personal and professional use, as well as able to use Google Calendar and apps. I already have a personal Gmail account that I've had since 2006

Logitech MX Keys Mini
Ok Logitech...

It seems to have some nifty function keys for a mic mute toggle and emoji ๐Ÿ˜… It comes in various colors incl

Habits that are Making You Exhausted
I found this article on Lifehacker that displays a good slideshow on habits that are exhausting us. I work from home now and sit for way too long and make it worse by leaving chat apps open all day and constantly checking them/responding to them or having too many websites open to do multiple things at once, which really isn't helping me accomplish anything at all! So clos

Setting up a new NAS โ€“ Synology DS220+
For a while now I've wanted to have a dedicated backup device instead of worrying about scripts running on my PC to 2 hard drives and cloud backup. It was a ridiculous setup that wasn't really easy to keep up to date and I didn't check on nearly enough. The internal drives of my PC are also pretty slow since they are secondary, and I also want to avoid keeping my PC on all the time.

How do you find inspiration to work on career stuff again? I've been in a rut for the last few months and miss social interaction. I think talking about it opening helps me start revving the engine again

Can a cis-gendered straight woman use she/they pronouns? I feel conflicted about this yet really want to put this in my profile.
