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!

....and I managed to avoid mentioning that the comp sci grad school program I start in the fall will affect my on-site work schedule.

All in all, calling it a win. I was tipped off that this middle manager had intentions of trying to increase my responsibilities in the area of grants management (which I am not qualified to do and have no interest in doing) and I avoided that completely.

Goal setting meeting completed. I managed to package stuff that I already wanted / planned to do - lead a sustainability certification thingy for the office to get ppl to be more mindful of wasting energy and supplies, formalize process documentation for my job in anticipation of graduating in 2 years, and a clinical data analytics / biz intelligence 'internship' with the primary care service line adjacent to our office.

I have a "goal setting" meeting for the first time in 3 years with a middle manager.

What's the best way to say "I'm good. The endless growth mindset of capitalism is abhorrent. I'm focused on my education and am happy to stay at my current level of responsibility and engagement for the rest of geological time, here."

messing around with hugo for static site gen - pretty great!

@pb thanks for bringing the gopher client back online in 2016 for mefi. i never used it, but it did result in me getting a trivia question right yesterday on learnedleague. =)

anyone else going to see the national tonight at the mann? so stoked! the new album is sooooo good.

just got the word and...


to submatriculate into the school of engineering here at Penn.

Absolutely amazing. So happy. Gahhhhhhhhhh what a relief.

waiting for Penn to tell me if I was accepted for submatriculation into the school of engineering and it's only been a week and I'm dying ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

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. 😭😭😭
