Starting to seriously consider writing my own component library at work.

There may be an inverse correlation between greatness of cleverness and lines of code added to make the hack happen.

The line between clever hack and disgusting hack is a fine one.

Handed off the last of the infra work to someone else. Manager said that learning best happens through struggle, and he said I leveled up through this effort.

Told my manager that this shit isn't going to get done any time soon, even though they need me back to UI work on Monday. Let's see how he takes it. 🍿

Me: <question about service, propose an answer>
Senior Eng: We don't need to worry about that.

Senior Eng: <answer I proposed yesterday>

The question is now becoming, how do I break both my hands at once so I don't have to work on this anymore?

Heebie-geebies effectively destroyed by a constant stream of "one more thing to fix" on the infra side of things.

Finally getting those end-of-project heebie-geebies.

My only qualm with The Melvin's HOUDINI is that I always, always, always wake up with "Goin' Blind" stuck in my head the morning after listening to the album.

In the final stretch of this project, and it's all in infra land. Let's see if this stretch is the 20 or the 80 of the 80/20 rule.

Majority of that time has been trying to correctly type our usage of some shit third-party library. Reviewer now doesn't think it'll work, and said they're ok with me abandoning the changes I've made at their request.

I've sunk at least an hour into addressing feedback on a PR that's ostensibly a "quick and simple" bug fix.

Already gotten as much coding done this morning as I got done all of yesterday.

Man, working in Java continues to make me feel dumb af.
