It was so early that Sunday morning that the sun wasn't fully out and the usual California dawn was overcast with foreboding clouds. In the dim, blue light of the morning it was obvious that the forecast was going to be rain and cold. Naturally, I...

Woot woot. I just spend like a week and a half of not leaving my goddamn room so I could put in a change to my admin dashboard and overhaul a bunch of css styles and small bells and whistles. There's absolutely no difference to the public facing w...

Sup, you slackers?? I've been making some big changes to the site over the past week, both in refactoring old code, fixing broken and outdated parts of the site, and adding a lot of cool new swag.
First of all, I added this sweet thing to my admi...

I rode my bike for the first time in probably more than six months. It felt good.
I left it lying next to the house outside all these months, even when it was pouring rain. Everything's all scratched up and rusty, but still working. Maybe I'll be...

I've been stuck in my room pretty much all day everyday for the past few months trying to get this website up and I finally managed to deploy it. The big "grand opening" moment probably won't come until I can get my old hosting company to freaking...

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup
I didn't know that Theranos was so fucking crazy. Just from casually listening to the news I thought it was just some girl who bit off more than she could chew and then started lying. No, this is the Final Fantasy 7 house of silicon valley start ups. I was captivated by this guys book the whole way through. I thought 350 pages would be long but it flew by. Also the stereotype pairing of young girl engineer and creepy piece.of shit incompetent old guy is really common in Silicon Valley. It's the worst. I need to get out of here.

12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos
This book is life anecdotes backed up with psychology for how to become an enlightened person. He also really likes the Bible. (Belief not necessary to enjoy the book). I think he has some interesting points but I disagree on a couple things, for instance when he says it's completely unreasonable to not want to have kids or that "striving the maximum good for most people" is specific enough to let you figure out what you should do in a day. I learned a lot of cool things about lobsters though.

Small Business For Dummies
I found this on a table at work and it was from 1998 which is funny because computers and the internet were super new back then. This is an overview for someone who has no clue how to start a business

Web Client Programming with Perl
This is a basic and outdated book but it's good for learning about perl and html request interactions. It's another textbook though so that was kind of boring to read.
