A Day in the Life: February 2016
Another A Day in the Life post! Are you ready?
Don’t worry, I didn’t expect you to write a recount of your day either. ;) You can if you want, but similar to last time, I have pulled together a few questions, including one about the weather, courtesy of Karin – I definitely agree with her that the weather is interesting to write about. And we have a theme towards the end, that theme being people. Read ahead for more on that.
If you want to check out the questions from January, you totally can. Feel free to use them, too.
What did you wear today?
What made you laugh?
At work, Chris was describing the weird behaviour of the interface we were building, and he said sarcastically, ‘This thing that’s giving you this exciting experience’. I was drinking at the time, and I wanted to laugh because I thought it was funny, and tried to with my drink still in my mouth, and I was laughing with my mouth closed for a good while until other people in my team noticed and started to find that funny too.
TIL (Today I Learned)
That meetups are actually a good way to meet people, even if you’re shy as heck. I went to the Girl Geek Sydney meetup, that I presented at in December, and I met some nice people there. :D
It was pretty cool today. Outside was warm enough that if you went for a walk, you might have been sweating, but it wasn’t intolerable. The kind of weather I like. Usually if you can walk around in the evening (after the sun has set) without a jacket, I consider that good weather.
I’ve made a theme for February, which is people. We encounter people every day. Maybe not in person, for example if you’re working from home, but I’m sure there are people you emailed, messaged, tweeted, Facebook messaged, saw on television, even saw on the bus.
We had four questions, so name four people that you encountered somehow in your day, and write a short description about how they were involved in your day. I suppose they don’t have to all be positive recollections, sometimes we want to rant. ;)
’Nuff said about this guy. He’s my rock (amongst other things). We bought frappuccinos today for half price.
Michelle of Dreaming Arcadia
I built a theme for Michelle’s blog that I started last month, she’s been so cooperative throughout. I emailed her this morning with some fixes, since there was a bug with the font. I’m glad she loves her blog’s new look. (There are some things I’m going to fix up for her that need fixing!)
Kiah is an awesome chick I met at the Girl Geek meetup today, she presented for the first time and did an awesome job. Apparently I inspired her with my last talk, I’m glad she felt compelled to do a talk herself. I found we had similarities with our interests and journeys into web development which is pretty cool. :D
Shitty truck driver
I was driving home from the station and this aggressive truck driver zoomed really fast next to me, not allowing me to merge into his lane. He did this to many other drivers up ahead, and I did not think it was appropriate for a truck to be driving so criminally fast. I was not pleased, I actually swore at the driver in private when I ended up having to wait behind him and couldn’t turn left because he was in front of me and in my way.
