Enneagram

Current theory: 2 and 5, with an 8 under stress and 4 in project mode

Reminders and good advice for myself:

Do more by doing less. Start saying โ€œNo,โ€ or โ€œLet me get back to you tomorrowโ€ when you are asked to do a task for someone. Independent, innovative, and inventive, you can become preoccupied with your thoughts and imaginary constructs. You can become detached, yet high-strung and intense, and typically have problems with eccentricity, nihilism, and isolation. The challenge is to understand that you can pursue whatever questions or problems spark your imaginations AND maintain relationships, take proper care of yourself, and do all of the things that are the hallmarks of a healthy life.

Nerdy Bits

Soooo...I've had a site in WordPress for over a decade but wanted to try something new for my landing page. I still use WP as the API...but...look: I'm a dev, breaking something that is working JUST FINE is kind of a way of life.

I decided that Next & Now were super cool, Google Cloud Functions were super fast, AND that all my old content still needed to exist. Naturally, I did the dev thing and mashed all of those pieces together.

This is a heavy work in progress (like me) but yeeting it out into the cyberverse is strangely motivating.
