THIS. I worked a non-dev job where I (later found out illegally because I shouldn't have been classified as exempt) worked so much overtime and weekends under the pretense of "furthering my career". The company ended up shutting down. I got nothing to show for all that extra work I put in.
Now, I work a unicorn of a dev job where we all work only 40 hours a week and they treat us like real people and not "company resources". Life is so much better this way.
Finally have WiFi at the hotel. Tonight's trip to Chicago to see #ALLIN was maybe the most fun I've had at a wrestling event.
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! 😂
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." 🤣
