Right now I feel really stalled. I haven’t done jack shit with any hobby outside revamping this blog, and I haven’t picked up any new hobbies either. I also don’t seem to be going anywhere at work. I do the same things day in and day out, and that’s usually a red flag when you’re an engineer. Typically problems come in all shapes and sizes, and for a long time there people were throwing everything and the kitchen sink at me. Now it seems like the problems I’m tasked with fixing are repetitive. It’s almost always the same thing. Repetitiveness is usually the thing that kills it for me. I can’t do repetitive. I guess everything becomes repetitive eventually, over time, no matter how complex it is. The better you get at it, the more the finer details appear mundane and unspectacular.
For me, job satisfaction hinges entirely around the challenges thrown at me. I think a lot of people are built that way.
I’ve also been spending a ton of time in Ohio, working at customer sites. Ohio is a pretty lame state. No craft beers. No weed. Lots of religion. For all intents and purposes, Ohio sucks. Yet, as much as Ohio sucks, Indiana is even worse. Infinitely worse, I’d say. Indiana doesn’t even allow gas stations to sell beer. You have to go to a special fucking store to buy beer. What the fuck is that bullshit? It’s religious nazi garbage being imposed on all the people of Indiana, no better than the fucking Chinese Communist Party imposing their will on the people of China. It’s fucking commie trash, that’s what it is. I can’t fucking stand all those religious zealot assholes trying to force the rest of society to be a deprived sycophant like them.
Most annoyingly, I had my raspberry pi die on me recently. Well, I haven’t performed a post-mortem yet, so I’m not even sure it’s actually dead. Could just be an issue with the operating system. I’m going to have to pry it open this weekend and take a look around, see if it POSTs and connect it to a display.
Anyways, I guess this will suffice as my gripe post for the day. At least I’m posting, I guess. ¯\(ツ)/¯
