religious raving, Metatron
Metatron seems to have a weird life - in one of his three canonical appearances, it's noted that he's allowed to sit down because writing and standing at the same time is hard. Someone remarked on this, saying that, obviously, because Metatron can sit down, he is Like God, and God - rather than explaining that it's Not Like That, Dude - got so jealous that he whipped the shit out of Metatron with a fire stick?
I need to read more about this.
Both of my last gigs were cool until I realized what people thought of the work I did, which was "this doesn't really help us at all" or "this is just invented work" - neither in reference to a specific thing I was working on, but rather to the entire problem domain I was working in.
Got one from a manager and another from a tech lead that I really wanted to work with. Both really hurt and made me wonder if I'm cut out for software at all.
I'm getting laid off in a month and it comes with a pretty decent severance, but the closer I get to the date the less I want to try anything.
I seem to get jobs doing weird shit nobody wants to do or cares about, with no team support. At this point I'm seriously considering exiting software entirely and flippin burgs while I figure out what to do next.
I like tech, I like writing code, but I hate watching my colleagues participate while I fuck around with their tooling all day
I had a conversation with my then-manager a while back about what PNGs are, and it seemed super cool, so I had the idea to write up some PNG libraries during the quarantine, but... I don't know much about C, and libpng already exists, so it feels kind of dumb to even consider wrapping my brain around how it works
The results are in: when it comes to whether or not people lower their ears to their headphones to put them in, most people have no idea what the hell you're talking about! Thanks everyone!
Golly, I sure am bad at stuff.
Ruby and whatever other language I can wrap my tiny brain around.
