what's cool about Stitch Fix 

Stitch Fix was AMAZING to interview with, and several soon-to-be coworkers have already reached out to welcome me. They've made a point of being excited about both my technical and communication/empathy skills, and letting me ask questions outside the management chain. I didn't have to negotiate, because they review comp regularly, pay fairly, and adjust when it doesn't match. They have standards for mentoring and career advancement... Basically, I'm thrilled :D

It's official! I'm thrilled that I'll be starting at Stitch Fix next month! 🎉

@cyrinsong @polymer_witch are new account adds closed, or new accounts from specific user groups? Friend of mine requested an account for toot.cat and never heard back at all.

@Styger Have you seen these reviews? Was thinking about getting one awhile back, but it doesn't seem functional in actuality, sadly: highya.com/luuup-reviews

And my mom is coming to visit this week! Which is exciting! And we're going wedding dress shopping, I guess? I'm feeling weirdly shy about it!

You know how there's that traffic jam game you can play where you try and free the car, but to finish it you have to make everything even more terrible than it seemed when you started, and it seems impossible you'll ever escape, then suddenly like one thing falls into place and everything else just works?

Finally feeling like I'm getting to the just works part of New House. Only took 4 months. 😂

editor wars

I shouldn't have mentioned emacs. 😩 I don't care if you use emacs, vim, or telegraph your code line by line and indent using sandwhiches

ya'll, I opened all the windows and now it's _too warm_ in my house. Hallelujah!

Working on my permaculture design 101 class work, and came across this blog post about adding a "transition ethic" to the principles of working toward the world you want to live in. It's giving me a lot of thoughts about sustainaibilty of community groups and participation. blog.numundo.org/2016/02/16/tr
