I finished the introductory prep courses for Launch School! I’ve also worked my way through some of the exercises again and the more I practice the more I realise the value of understanding how everything under the hood operates. Today I’m going to work on the section on regular expressions again. Also, I laughed so much at this hilarious [almost 2000s-esque?] programming take on thank u, next.
I had a very bizarre week of knitting — literally every project I started ended up badly, I bought three skeins of yarn that were not the right weight for my ideas — I just could not meet gauge — and then I had to rip a sweater and then a scarf because neither were working. It felt like trying to write a draft that just doesn’t seem to come together. (or like the year I got rejected for every single fellowship i applied for, coolcoolcoolcoolcool) I’m having a second go at making the Caramel sweater with Robin Double Knit yarn, and about 38 rows in, it seems to be going fairly well. I’m glad the curse seems to be lifted somewhat, though lets see how this sweater goes.
Here’s my finished Noro striped scarf-inspired scarf though!
I finally saw the Fyre doc on Netflix, and it fills me with delight that Ja Rule thinks he can do another festival. The grift, it never stops.
