Pinned toot

We are doing again I see. Cool!

I’m Logan. 35 years old, married, service industry veteran. 2 years ago I decided to switch careers into tech. I’m a full time business administrator at the University of Pennsylvania where I also attend school full time. I’m pursuing a BA in Cognitive Science: Computation and Cognition and soon a Masters in Computers and Information Tech in the School of Engineering.

Super into and & I have no free time.

Welcome new folks!

Every now and then I get the notion to go listen to one of the bands of my youth. Much more often than not, they have not aged well nor do the songs I loved then hold up.

But you know what? Pavement still slaps.

I've been lurking here and not posting for no reason other than I am so busy that I have no internal energy currency to spend on posting.

With the introduction of polls on some Mastodon instances, I decided to start the 1st Inofficial Programming Language World Championships! #plwc2019

It's a knockout tournament where 32 programming languages compete against each other, and you decide the winner of each round by voting.

Sadly only a select few instances support polls so far and you won't see them on Fedilab just yet. Check the website!

Today's matchups:

PHP v Bash
Object Pascal v D

Spread the toot, let's make this a fun one!

holy crap, Into the Spiderverse is amazing.

if i dress like it’s not winter that means it will be not winter right

Dropped her phone while taking a selfie, about to get smashed in the face with a soccer ball, but still smiling.

getting on my bicycle yesterday for the first time since starting squatting heavy weights 3 months ago was crazy. it's like my bike got 2x lighter and faster.

Dennis REALLY did not want me to leave this morning. 😭😭😭

since november 2016, nothing feels easy anymore.

and here's us all glowing after the above exploration was finished.

Trying to keep that flame of warmth and sunlight going in my chest as we settle back into freezing snowy Philadelphia winter.

Bermuda in January: 73 and partly sunny. Quiet, not many tourists. Not warm enough to swim in the ocean, but plenty warm to explore the beaches and sit with a good book. Gorgeous clear water. Friendly and kind locals. Restorative and relaxing.

Here's my spouse lookin' all badass exploring the rocky eddies at the end of Horseshoe Beach.

I’m really struggling to find a mentor in the computer science industry capable of setting aside provincial biases in favor of advising based on my particular circumstances. It’s intensely frustrating.

That said, I am also acutely aware that I have a very non-traditional narrative and am aiming for a specific target. So I didn’t expect finding a mentor to be easy. I just didn’t expect it to be this difficult!

Best solution? Keep trying, and in the meantime, put my head down and work.

Hey my jawns! Happy new year. ✨🎉✨

Come see me on stage at Philly Improv Theater next week thursday, I’m a guest storyteller in this wacky show that scares the bejeezus out of me!

Tix are less than $10 and it’s sure to be a fun time.

Landed in Bermuda. Last toot for a few days. Time to disconnect a bit. Happy everyone.
