Quitting a job I came to dislike (for various reasons) was super hard, how could I expect quitting one I actually like could have been any better?
It sucks to say goodbye. But sometimes I need to try new things and take opportunities when they show up. This a gamble, and I'm not a gambler, so it's damn unsettling. Still, I need to do it.
Neoliberal state 101
The state has contracted a private company to manage a national road
1. If the profits from the toll charge do not reach a certain amount, the state has to pay the company the "loss"
2. If the road is out of order - e.g. due to a natural disaster - the company is responsible of fixing, and it has to pay a fine proportionate to the time the road was unavailable
Heavy snowfall: the state opts beforehand to block the access to the road. The 1st condition is triggered.
"There's another one coming!"
"Is it not wondrous? All this time we thought we were alone in the universe. We aren't."
"We truly aren't. Should we greet them?"
"Can we know they want to meet us?"
"True. Let's not intrude."

ugh, slowly getting there.
Learning is frustrating sometimes.
I know basically nothing about 3D design. I tried Fusion360 and I learned to do something basic.
Now I'm on my linux box, and I wanted to use #FreeCAD. I am following a guide and I still don't undestand what I'm doing. It's SO HARD. So many clicks. Why?
I just had to witness a demonstration of a few hundred cars (with several police cars and vans in between) driving in front of my house. Loudspeakers and speakers. "Vaccines kill" and "put your masks up your ass".
All I could do is keep my middle finger up for 10 minutes, while shouting back. I wish I ate eggs, I would have had some to throw them. With so much police, that's as far as I would get 😅 .
