I'm paraphrasing, but the recruiter said something like, "I'll still help you. You know ... karma." LOL

I'm so tired. Being sick has thrown off my sleep cycle badly x__x.

I finally got my local working, and am trying to familiarize myself with the code. They're still doing the requirements for the project I'm supposed to be working on, so I've got nothing really going on. I've been reading documentation and perusing the codebase, but still. Bbbbbooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeedddddddddddd.

If a recruiter hasn't bothered to actually read my profile or resume, I'm usually just done. It's clear they aren't going to find things I actually want!

We are in some super intense flooding. Small towns are being cut off, bridges washed out (one way to get them repaired!), and already a hand full of people missing or dead. It's super weird as this is going on around the eastern part of the state and far outskirts of town.. and here I am plinking away at a keyboard trying to get JSON values out without using recursion (too much).. and wondering if I should be getting crates of bottled water.

The day is blue skies and sunny, but the nights get all sorts of survival horror game-esque as I follow the twitter accounts of police, local scanner, etc.

Yeah there's not a lot of news about Nebraska for whatever reason but the pictures look nuts.

I got rejected from another graduate program tonight. :(

I think I will likely end up at grad school #1, though I'm still waiting to hear back from two more programs.

Why are they rejecting you? You seem more than qualified and are passionate about what you do. You would think that you are an excellent candidate for such programs. It is not like you are a slacker and you have taught others. Have they said why? Do you need to get involved with a cheating scam where you get your parents to "donate" to a special organization?

:)

Itís a top 10 program, so Iím sure Iím competing against similarly qualified candidates. They said in their rejection email that they canít/wonít comment on why I wasnít selected.

Itís disappointing, but grad school #1 is still a really good place to be! So Iím still excited about that option.

I lost 5 lbs since I've been sick lmao. Also got hosted for like 20 views yesterday, and over half stayed, so that was a good stream. Got my first payout from Twitch also. Climbed 70 SR, which helps with the 170 SR loss I suffered last weekend, so that's nice. I might actually be getting enough energy to clean on my disgusting house.

Discovered the file reader I wrote a few months ago won't work when deployed to production, due to permissions. So, I have today to write a new version and get it submitted for full testing that is scheduled for tomorrow. It's an independent piece, but the new system we are deploying depends heavily on it...


Had a weekend full of house hunting and speaking with builders. Found a perfect house, then discovered the builder has way too many complaints for me to feel comfortable. Discovered a neighborhood and spoke with them and about had a stroke, literally not just phrasing. The smallest house they offered was 5,000 sqft and the base price was $810k with no added upgrades! THE SMALLEST WAS ALMOST DOUBLE WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR! But, the CEO of ICEE is having his house built there... Wrong neighborhood for my budget! Back to the drawing board for a house now. This has been very emotionally draining.

I've done the property song and dance a few times, and I feel you. It's a serious marathon (and I've actually never pulled the trigger)...

Do you mean I feel for you?

I also think it is dangerous to run with a gun, as it is with scissors :gun_bandana:
