Your Gal is Back in Business!

Hi friends! I'm back from a relaxing vacation from work, coding, and all things requiring significant mental focus.

I don't even know how long it lasted, but I do know that I lost track of the time and what day it was (which, now that I think about it, tends to happen during the first couple weeks of August of really any year).

During my vacation, I spent some time traveling around the south of France with my boyfriend and basking in the sheer bliss of a European summer under the influence of utter vacation-mindset.

Needless to say, I came back from all of it with a breathless excitement to jump back in to everything I've been working on. Isn't that such a great feeling?

I'm taking it slowly today - might dip my toes back into a few Ladies Code Collective things (back to podcast production tomorrow!) and then I also want to try to scope out what the next few weeks of study will look like (looks like it's going to be React!).

Re: React, I've dabbled a bit before, but I never really got it to stick so now that I've spent a solid amount of time and done significant amount of work around drilling in the basics of JavaScript, I think I'll be better-equipped to dive all the way in.

Also. I'm currently listening to the new Glass Animals album - two tracks in and I already can't get enough.


P.S. Did you know I have a podcast with new episodes each Wednesday? Go listen right over here >>

P.P.S. Have a coding project you want to work on in a supportive environment of other creative coding women? Come apply for a spot in my upcoming Ladies Code Collective Cohort (space is limited!) >> More info here

Welcome back! How was traveling during this time? I'm aching to get back to Europe! Re: Glass Animals, I've only heard "Heat Waves" but I love that song – can't wait to listen to the whole album!

 

Thanks, Ruanna! It was fine - we definitely made sure to follow safety and social distance measures as well as we could. I live in Toulouse, so the trip over to where we were in more the southeast of France was an easy ~3-hour drive from us :)

Heat Waves is so good! I recommend just listening to the whole album from start to finish - it's a gem!
