I pretty much made up my mind that next year I'll move out of Sydney and look to go back into a "pure" dev role. I'm worried that having worked a whole year in a mainly support and salesforce admin role will hurt my chances, but I'll have to convince recruiters I can be a dev.
Considering in my last dev role I burned out in less than 6 months I'm a bit scared at this idea, I'm really scared to fall in another hellish company.
This is a new low: a guy at work asked me if I was named after the Godfather. I must've shot him a look, because he immediately looked sorry and embarrassed. My answers was "Of course not", and I barely managed to refrain from adding "What kind of question is that?"
I'm so so sick of people at work being so clueless.
Last night I had a nightmare: I was back at my old company, a shitty place that pretended to be a startup by trying to emulate shitty startup culture. On the first day back, in my dream, they gave me a tacky t-shirt that I had to wear at all times while working there.
I woke up in sweat and I didn't dare go back to sleep.
Interesting NYT article about my hometown and region. It's too heavy on the "this is such a simple life" side, but it otherwise feels like a good picture:

I work for an architecture firm, and each month we have a "jobfest" where a team presents their projects, drawings, etc., to the whole office. I like to think one day I'll just go up there and start talking about my projects and their architecture: the data layer, the MVC pattern, the repositories, and microservices.
It'd be funny only for me, though.
I'm so proud of my users! One of them had an issue with their monitor's power, so they checked the cable and plugged it in properly all by themselves!
Lol jk, they worked with a flickering monitor for TWO DAYS then they angrily called me, so I went upstairs and "fixed it" by plugging in the power cord that came loose.
I keep unintentionally making myself super busy, followed by periods where I don't want to see anyone. This week I have two concerts, one art bar exhibition (I don't even know what it is, I literally bought a ticket by accident), one cinema night, and one planned night for rock climbing.
Next week I'll probably not talk to anyone and spend every single night on my couch.
