I just gave a 20 minute presentation in front of fifty people, and apparently did well enough that I got five private compliments afterwards, including one from the vice president. 🥳

And all of that without a single drop of rum!

    @N00bPancakes Screw that. I’ve been in management before; while I’m good at it, I don’t like it. I like code, not people. People are unreliable.
