Perfect intro song.

Technical interview tomorrow evening. Kind of nervous but I made a good impression in the first interview so I have some reason to be confident. Crossing my fingers.

Wish me luck. Just the usual chat over coffee but first impressions are everything! I'm reading about the company's domain and their competitors... I don't want to give away any details but now feels like a good time to be moving into this industry.

Anxiety has been bad as ever. Mitigated slightly by using some novel and fun technology at work but generally not great. I should quit coffee. MORE SLEEP. and getting to work early. I need to become much more in tune with what makes me feel good and what makes me feel bad.

That's a great attitude to take with art. I can't wait for your next release :D

This is awesome. Can't wait for more. The range of genres that you can put out music in is impressive as hell. Keep on rockin' in the free world!

This sounds like a good idea, I never knew this existed!

Wow I've got to try this out. Meditation and general contemplation/slowing down is something I have not made time for but it is definitely necessary. The only such activity I take part in is going on leisurely strolls around the city. I live in the bustling centre of London but it's not too far to the nearest park.

Seething with jealousy.

Snow?! Where are you?

I think it's more due to the specific position. Another result of me having my current job is that I've become interested in a bunch of computing things I didn't know/care about before, e.g. automating processes, creating systems that are a bit more distributed, maintainability.

That web app looks awesome. I really need to rediscover the actual joy of programming and developing software because doing it as a job makes it not fun (especially when this means office politics).

Summer solstice today. I don't follow any religious traditions but if I could choose when to have a holiday, I would choose a day of ASTRONOMICAL SIGNIFICANCE! I always feel sad as the days get shorter and shorter... Time to spend as much time as possible in the sun before it goes away completely. The worst thing about autumn and winter is leaving work at night. I'm not looking forward to that.
