    I finally got back to working on my Tildes application for Android, hammered out an issue I'd been stuck on for hours last time I touched things. Hoping to begin work in earnest tomorrow, pretty excited to play around with the design.

      That’s pretty cool! I was thinking about finding one for iOS, but don’t know where to look. What was the issue you ran into?

    I joined Tildes lol. It was the most meaningful thing I've done today which isn't necessarily a good thing.

    But really, I picked up overtime at work for a co-worker who needed the day because her son was having surgery and needed some help with the kids. I suppose that was a nice thing to do. I really didn't want to, not with the new Warcraft expansion having just dropped, but she's always been real nice to me and has been a huge help as someone I could ask work related questions and get an answer without giving me any grief like some of the others I've worked with.

    So now, during downtime, I'm browsing Tilde and familiarizing myself with the site.

    A girl kinda forced me to have her number at work today. It's my last day before I start a job in the industry I studied for, and this was the first she learned about it. Before she gave it to me, she asked me about my 'girlfriend' and I had to answer that I didn't have one. She kept talking to me after that, I got close to me when she could.

    I'm not dumb, it's obvious what she wants. But I kinda wish she didn't give me her number because now she can get hurt if I don't talk to her, but at the same time, I'm not interested in starting a new relationship of any kind right now, romantic or otherwise. And I really don't like having any sort of conversation around something personal like attraction.

    Oh well, decisions, decisions. At least I have a new job to look forward to on Monday. I'll be able to say I've been busy if she asks why I've not been talking to her.

      I'm not interested in starting a new relationship of any kind right now, romantic or otherwise.

      I can sort of relate. A few days ago a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to come back to her podcast that she's put on hold the past six months. I used to go and talk with her and a few other people once every other month, but I got burnt (burned?) out and she thankfully put the whole project on hold due to her own thing. A few days ago she asked me to come back and it took no less than three different text exchanges to get the point across that I have way too much on my schedule and am not interested in adding her podcast to my list of to-dos.

      I was nice about it of course, but she hasn't responded back since my final reply, so she's probably mad because "no" wasn't the answer she wanted, but she also hasn't talked to me since putting her project on hold, and I've certainly not missed having to fit that into my schedule.

      Oh well, decisions, decisions.

      If I can offer some unsolicited advice, do something with her, and see how it goes. I know you didn't ask, but I've always found situations like this can surprise us in pleasant ways. If you spend time with her and it doesn't appeal to you, like you think it won't now, then you'll at least have the chance to explain to her in person that you're not looking for anything, friendship or otherwise at the moment.

      Then again, you could really enjoy the experience.

      If you're talking about testosterone, I'd highly suggest lower doses more often. Once a week helps keep levels a lot more steady, and you won't find yourself pining for the needle by week 2 because your energy levels are much lower, or bouncing off the walls feeling pumped on day 2 because the dose is so large.

            Yeah, E can be administered orally (sublingually, buccally, or just by swallowing it - buccal administration is discouraged though because it can stain/be bad for your teeth), via a patch, or by intramuscular injection (typically into the thigh). There's talk in the community in various places that different administration methods can work better for some people - some people are fine on pills, for others the pills don't get their levels high enough without getting to somewhat dangerous doses (or they have other health concerns that the pills cause concerns with), patches can irritate the skin pretty badly or in some cases refuse to stick (someone I know uses medical tape to keep her patches stuck to her skin, which seems like a bit of a pain), but injections are typically accepted as the best option as far as effectiveness, from what I've seen - even in cases where people's actual levels were fine, some anecdotally have said they had better progress and results once they started on injections. The main drawback for injection is simply that it's expensive (my copay for a vial is $75 - it'll last me a few months, but still, my copay for the pills is only $7 a month), if you mess up it can be a bit painful, and you have to give yourself injections once every week or two. Also it has been known to go in-and-out of shortage from time to time, though my prescriber said it seemed to be ok right now, at least in my area, and sure enough mine's been filled already, though I'm gonna wait until my appointment next week to actually inject it, so they don't yell at me for doing it before their instruction lol. Also of course you need to buy syringes and needles and have a sharps container and dispose of them properly and all of that stuff.

              You may know these, but here's a few things I've learned about injectables over time with my experience as an EMT and eventually with my own testosterone injections (my body stopped producing it).

              I'm not sure how viscous the estrogen is, but testosterone is usually suspended in oil which is why they recommend larger needles (typically 20 gauge or less). However, you can load with a 20 gauge needle and then backload into a smaller needle (basically pull the plunger out and push the fluid into the chamber) like a 29-31 gauge (insulin needle) so you're not leaving giant holes in your leg and it's a lot more comfortable to do the injection.

              I personally prefer a combination of the z-method (pull the skin back before injecting) and a small (typically around 0.01-0.02ml) pocket of air to ensure the fluid stays in place and doesn't leak out.

              As for needles and syringes, I highly recommend buying them in bulk online. At the pharmacy I was paying 2-3x per needle what I was buying boxes of 100 online.

              Since estrogen isn't controlled like testosterone is, it wouldn't surprise me if there's an online indian pharmacy you can purchase it from if you ever run low on supply or want a cheaper alternative. I personally get hcg and AIs from online indian pharmacies and their prices are usually pretty good. It's not all that expensive to find a place online that will do a chemical analysis of the product as well, if you're worried about quality.

                Appreciated - I can get the needles and syringes for a fairly reasonable price at the pharmacy - $3 for 10 of each, so $9 total (thanks to a NY state initiative to help reduce spread of disease, I can get them OTC - if I buy them from a prescription it’s automatically $12 before insurance at minimum, and my insurance doesn’t cover them). But yeah I’m using the two needles (one to take from the vial, one to actually inject).

                They’re doing training for me on Thursday , so I’m sure they’ll walk me through the whole thing again, but I appreciate the advice, ty!

For whatever reason the needles alone cost about the same, but $30 for 100 instead of $90 is about a third of the price so it might be worth looking into once you're more comfortable with the injections.

                  There's a lot of different injection techniques out there, I'd highly recommend trying out a few to find out what works best for you.

    I'm generally in favor of having at least one of these kinds of topics for the week or weekend, even if I don't usually have anything to mention, but today I do.

    I've started running again, although only inside and on a treadmill, because Texas is too hot, but it's better than nothing and I already feel better just from picking up a routine.

    I'm still waiting on a PCB for a custom mechanical keyboard to be shipped to me, but I've got all of my other parts in, and today began the slow and tedious process of filing away the stems of my BOX Navy switches so they don't break my keycaps. That's not my photo, but it's the same process. Between getting good measurements with calipers and the actual filing, I'm suddenly glad that the keyboard I ordered only has forty-eight keys.

        Well, I bought my BOX switches before the keycap destroying issues were discovered. Once I found out, I planned to return them for in-spec switches until NovelKeys had a 60% discount on their defective stock. I caved and doubled my amount of Box Navies (150 now) and got a deskpad for the same price I paid for the original batch before the defect was known.

        So I'm pretty well stocked on switches for the next two or three keyboards I build, I'll just have to do some filing before I can put them together.

        I wasn't even going to buy a Planck, but I got to see one in person and that crushed any hope my wallet had, and the discount on defective switches was too good for me to pass up. I'm probably not the person to talk to if you want to refrain from buying keyboards.

            BOX White is sold out, but everything else is still in, as far as their old stock goes.

            New stock is supposed to be in around September, so keep that in mind if you don't have a caliper or file set already on hand, it might be cheaper overall to wait and not have to spend extra to fix discounted switches.

            Or you could buy cheap keycaps and not care about stretching, that's what I am tempted to do for my next build.

    it wasn't today, but last night. I'm an aged care nurse and last night one of my residents passed, it wasn't a peaceful passing.
    this isn't my first and won't be the last, I wish things could have been different for them.
    the good thing I have taken from it, is at least it was quick.
    sorry to bring things down.

        thank you. it's part of the career I've chosen unfortunately, I was honestly more worried about my staff than my own mental wellbeing.
        I've known the resident for just over a year where the others have known them for 6+ years, I was told this evening the family were very thankful for all we had done and couldn't have been happier with the care we provided so that is a huge plus

    I have a job interview today and I like my chances. I had a live coding phone interview the other day and they said I did better than most people. It pays about 20K more than my current job as well.

        Thanks. I just got back from it. I took way too long to solve their whiteboard problem and I wasn't really satisfied with the solution I came up with, but I'll find out their decision next week.

      I think 5’10” isn’t THAT rare. I work a job with probably 3 or 4 women around that height (and myself), though I imagine it may also depend where you are. When I was in Texas I was more standout as tall than I am here (I was the 3rd tallest person in my department probably, including the guys)

        I've never lived in Texas, only driven through a few times. Anecdotally, people are short there. I sat in a super busy gas station lot for about half an hour, and every guy had to jump down from his truck. I'm 6'0" and felt like a towering giant.

    I had a truly massive construction-style dumpster delivered yesterday, one of those 20 yard long monsters. I've already filled it 4/5 throwing away literal decades of garbage. I have depression-era parents, so they were hoarders who never threw anything away. Half a floor of the house was basically a storage junkyard. It feels good to finally get all of that stuff out. I still have several piles of old construction bits to toss (lumber, drywall etc) and two more rooms to empty out. Then there's the attic, god only knows what's up there. Then the cleaning begins.

    Yesterday I did a video for a local non profit that has helped me a lot and they sent someone to pick me up and drop me off. She was roughly the same age as me, very attractive, and we had really good conversation on both the drive to and from. I have her number because she texted me to get my address before we met, and on the way home she gave me her business card and told me I could call her if I needed anything, even if it's not related to the non profit.

    Today I'm trying to figure out if that means she's interested in me and if so how to not fuck it all up, or whether or not I'm worth dating right now.

    I had a plumber here for the third day this week- he was a quiet man, and fixed everything barely even speaking.

    The first guy arrived for ten minutes, took photos, and left. The next day, the boss came, spent half an hour complaining about the first guy, then claimed his tools were broken, then left.

    The third guy spent a few hours here, fixed up everything, then asked me not to leave a negative review on his coworkers because they need the contract with our water company.

    My plumbing damage was a result of a month of flooding. An hour after he left my phone began to scream regarding yet another flood alert.

    I know I'm late, and it wasn't necessarily today... But I got some followers on my twitch. I mostly do it as a hobby, so I don't really care about numbers. But when they go up, it makes me feel good. I still need to get better at commentating what I'm doing, so that's what I'm working on. Every once in a while I get a user that's active in chat and it's my favorite.

    Yet another day in the uphill struggle of daily functioning and life.

    Yesterday we were hit directly by a big rainstorm. I don't know if it was some kind of metaphor of my inner state or else. There were flooded roads, fallen trees, typical storm stuff. Today it's still windy and in the morning I saw a large, beautiful butterfly taking wings. It must have taken good care of itself and weathered the chaos.

    I was soothing a friend who's undergoing their own troubles. I have full faith in their own ability to emerge fine and stronger out of it, and all I can do is to lend some support. But do I have faith in mine? I can't say yes or no.

    I have almost finished week of the first course in the Applied Python for Data Science specialization on Coursera. I have been using DataCamp to learn Python and dip my toes into Data Science but I recognized that I was moving too fast and wasn't internalizing everything that I was working on within the course.

    This Coursera specialization seems like it will be good in tandem with DataCamp though. I also started to read Think Like A Programmer and am enjoying it pretty well to get in the creative mindset when solving problems.

    I recognize that one of my biggest problems I am having with programming right now is just writing down what I want to do and planning how I am going to accomplish it. My code ends up a jumbled mess that takes awhile to recompile in jupyter notebook and sometimes I remove something that was critical to get from point A to point C.

    Other than that, I am looking forward to trying out Madden on PC over the weekend and trying to get my friends to do an online franchise together.

    I'm an Uber driver, and I just got a message from Uber "Support" telling me that they'd decided some of the cleaning fee claims I've submitted recently were "not credible", and further violations would lead to deactivation.

    I get why they're focusing on the issue, since news sites have been increasingly writing about "vomit fraud", but I just happen to have the bad luck of constantly getting riders who put their muddy feet on my seats or spill their drinks! If there really had been a problem with any of my past claims, they should have caught it then, not now in response to, probably, someone trying to get out of paying a valid fee.

    I'm annoyed. I guess this is the impetus I needed to start backing up my dashcam footage longer than a day.

    I have a hole in my tooth and it doesn't hurt, but it bother's me a lot. I don't know how to explain, but having a hollow tooth is very uncomfortable. It won't be fixed soon... I have to live at least 2 more weeks with it. And it won't be cheap.

    On the plus side, I had coconut ice cream and it was awesome.
