Happy New Year all.
Whereas 2023 started off on a bad foot and only improved recently, 2024 is looking cautiously optimistic. I have a job that seems like it has the potential to open doors that have been shut and I can pivot to a new skillset.
It is only a matter of time before I run into No-Name Software industry colleagues who don't think highly of me or have had bad experiences.
At the start of last year, I strived to do 10 posts per month. Obviously, that fell out of fashion because when you don't have anything to write about, there's not much to post.
Two life hacks that I've recently come up with.
I found a place that will wash, dry, and fold our laundry for $1.75 per pound. And for a little bit more per pound, they will even pick up and deliver.
Earlier in the year, the kids switched from wanting baths to taking showers. This is a game changer because bathing the kids was not something I liked doing or was good at. NG had the job but she would do it only at the end of the night before bedtime.
