Birthday 🎂

Turned 23 on Thursday.

Just stayed at home with my family and ordered some pizza. No relatives came over, which was completely fine as I still had work to do and I could use less distractions.

A friend gave me a bittersweet gift. It was nice, considering we opted to not buy a cake.

Fun trip

Sam and I went ice skating on Sunday!

(Yes, I wore my biking gloves instead of something better-suited, but hey, at least they fit like a...)

That was my first time ice skating. As I imagined, it's not easy. I started to get the hang of it after a while, but I mostly just walked and slid a little. Couldn't glide yet.

And of course, I fell a few times. That was part of the fun, though!

We went to Taco Bell afterwards. It was also the first time I ate something from Taco Bell. It was pretty good. Sam bought a takeaway for his girlfriend and I got to meet her in person for the first time. I also bought some for my family.

I played Charlie Burg's three-part album and sang to it on the car ride. That was not the first time I sang on a car ride 😛

Needless to say, I had so much fun that day. It's amusing to think all these activities were actually a Plan B. We initially planned to visit one of our high-school teachers, but it turned out he couldn't meet us. Maybe we'll get to visit him next week.


My friends and I finished the main story of a DLC for Borderlands 2. We also tried to play Borderlands 3, but the game crashed a few times so we didn't continue.

I still played Fallout: New Vegas.

Only updated some dependencies.


Worked on some UI improvements and took a first stab at implementing the preview panel in the new page editor. Had fun figuring out how to size the iframe and all that.
