Work is back in session; I’m trying to get my routine back on the clock. The goodbyes were hard after the EMT practicals exams for the friends I made. I’m going to aimlessly wait for thanksgiving to see them again, well, at least one person. This person dragged me to the finish line in the class, not figuratively – literally. I’m not sure if I would have continued without her. She has the same spark for medicine that I have for engineering; I can only wish I could be half as good as her.

Mom got emotional the other day seeing a stethoscope around my neck on a video call while I was getting ready for work & packing my bag; I was also wearing dad’s shirt the same day, so I accidentally brought up some emotions.

Work will keep climbing for a while; after the k8s upgrades, I want to knock the APM for ES out of the park and get it over with. This is the problem with leading and running projects solo; when you’re not working on it, everyone thinks you are. Anyway, let bygones be bygones.

I am looking forward to winter and setting the schedule right. Things never subsided after I had covid in march, one after the other, something was happening – I barely got time to breathe. Travel, work, events, classes, exams. It just never ended.

My internet stopped working again. The ARIS box from optimum got bricked somehow; it doesn’t have any power. Good luck to me tomorrow getting it replaced.

The above picture was shared with me by someone from the EMT course; I almost smiled after reading it all.

We spend so much time being afraid of failure, afraid of rejection. But regret is the thing we should fear most. Failure is an answer. Rejection is an answer. Regret is an eternal question you will never have the answer to.

So yeah, screw it all. Go for it. Just don’t keep any regrets.
