I have Writer’s Block, so I figured, “I should probably write about that.”
I’ve started at least 5 blog posts in the past week. I’ve deleted more lines than I’ve written. (Yes, it is possible. You just have to delete someone else’s writing.)
A few things I’ve started to write about:
- The opportunity to leverage coding bootcamps to improve the IT gender gap
- Puppet shows with the kids
- Ruby Enumerable (I’m walking through the documentation, writing a program for each Enumerable method)
- Work: I’ve finally gotten enough of a grasp of things to start contributing in very, very small ways
Each time I start to write, my brain screams, “Stop! No! Don’t want to think!” and then red lights start flashing and a mechanical voice says, “Powering down.”
I’ve been pair programming daily at work, stretching my brain power and my social interaction limits to the max. It’s only now, as I write this, that I’m realizing just how fried my brain is. Thinking about it hurts.
(Mechanical voice): Switching to auxiliary power. Shutting down all non-essential brain functions. Good. Bye.
