It’s been a while since I’ve returned from my journey, plenty of time for me to get back into the same old routine.
The first few days took a bit of adjusting, still some leftover jetlag keeping me up ’til late and giving me a rough time getting out of bed. But after that initial period of getting back into the flow and catching up with everything I missed, things were normal again. No daily rush of “oh wow holy shit”, no long periods of travel. I actually got back to a programming project fairly swiftly, though of course that did come with the usual “how did I think this was a good idea”, “shit I better rewrite all this from scratch” thoughts.
Speaking of that project though, I actually decided to write the server-side code in a different language than I had started in. It’s been… nothing short of a challenge, to say the least. I think I finally have a way to get things done the way I want to while still using the language I prefer (that’s not a good mindset to have about things though), but it’s not fully implemented yet because of struggles and demotivation due to earlier failures.
I also found out I missed the Steam Summer Sale. Still had a thing I wanted to buy, my wallet is not happy.
