I just finished up an absolute cesspool of a project. I was seriously reconsidering a career change to something less stressful, like welding on a high-rise building, or capturing Somali pirates.

Next project is supposed to be a walk in the park, and probably still will be.

MGR: You're starting a new project next week. Prismic for the CMS, and NextJS.
ME: Oh, okay, cool. Well, let me get up to speed on Prismic and Next since I haven't used either of those.
Spent some time last week - easy enough, nothing really new/ground breaking here.

Sprint 0.5 Kick off meeting today
MGR: By the way, we're still using Prismic for the CMS, but we're gonna go ahead and use Gatsby instead of Next.
Me: ... *facepalm

    Don't tell me your manager is in charge of picking languages and frameworks without investing any development time themselves?

    Capturing somali pirates sounds fun as fuck.

    The only problem with working in offices is the complete lack of excitement.

    @Wisecrack You're preaching to the choir on that one. I'm considering finishing my criminal justice degree so I can become a reserve police officer. I need some excitement in my work life.

    You can train yourself and your mind to love, enjoy, and crave conflict.
