Finally got this up on the wall.
This is what happens when you don't give the Disney Infinity figure shelves a good dusting in a while. 😵
This delighted me this morning. I know these are all marketing accounts and the super cynical part of me thinks they're helping make kids addicted to social media... but for a moment I genuinely laughed at the existence of these Twitter accounts. #SesameStreet #TheMuppets
Also, I genuinely enjoy that the algorithm puts Charlize Theron above Kermit! 😂
Two months of MoviePass viewing. I dig the history function on this app. Also, just got out of RBG and it's a great documentary.
If I had seen this in person I would've been so twitchy!
I was very lucky to get to see Bill Nye speak at the Dr. Phillips Center last night.
Best takeaway of the night, advice given to a 6th grade science teacher (paraphrased): "The best thing you can give your students is your passion for science. Also algebra."
Best moment of the night: When he called up Neil DeGrasse Tyson to clarify an answer about white dwarfs and black holes and Neil joked that Bill (again paraphrased) "pulled an answer out of his ass." 🤣
Every time Captain Rex is mentioned on Star Wars Rebels this is the first place my mind goes and every time I'm wrong.
Hold on to your butts, I'm starting this C++ book.
Seeing this old receipt tucked into that C++ book takes me back to a day when I started to realize that acting wasn't really my calling and I thought a Theatre degree would doom me to a life of crappy admin jobs. I made websites as a hobby but wanted to be "a real programmer".
6 months after buying this book I moved across the country and 5 years after that I landed a dream job as a Front-End Dev. This is a reminder of how hard I've worked to get here and how much I still want to learn.
That's not even my only C++ book. I guess in my early 20's I was convinced that the only way I would ever be a "real programmer" is if I learned C++. That's probably why I bounced around a few careers before sticking the landing at 30-ish... without ever learning C++.
Cleaning off bookshelves so I can organize my old Star Wars novels and I found this and do I dare give it another try?! (The receipt-turned-bookmark indicates that I only made it to page 91. I definitely didn't learn C++.)
Thinking about how nightmarishly crowded the Magic Kingdom seemed tonight, but then I listed out everything we did tonight between the hours of 6:30 and 10:30, plus dinner and snacks, and we actually accomplished a lot despite the crowds. Always use FastPasses.
I just paid off my car loan and I'm tied for first in my company's March Madness tournament.
TFW a huge, math-y project makes it through QA and code review with only a couple of minor issues.
