Inbox flood as they realize I'm a short-timer.

Judging by the extended rant during todays pairing / mentoring session, I'm on team "view functions" for Django.

Went to sleep three hours earlier than usual. Body woke me up two hours earlier than usual. So I guess it's nice to sleep in?

A mixed blessing for sure.

Replaced the Cana fan on the Pi4 with something quiet enough that I forget it's on if there's any other background noise at all.

naturally right before i'm about to head to bed is when i remember i didn't eat and i'm hungry

Containers?

Too confusing.

pyenv poetry pipenv etc?

Baffling.

Let's try out Guix! Surely an arcane environment management system driven by Guile Scheme that I can only run on Linux won't seem weird at all.

I mean there are worse options, but it's still something.
