10/27/2019

only mowed the front lawn, but haven't in like 4 weeks so it was brutal. got it done.

if it hadn't taken so long, i'd have done some "landscaping". but i still wanted to do it so, did it at night with my headlamp.

got some more solar lights (for the front yard), but had a few left over so temporarily using them to illuminate some plants. but, i need better ones which illuminate the actual plant directly above. need to find something good. don't want to get more "lamp" ones for that. has to be something better.

i got bougainvillea's, corn plant, another elephant ear (love these), and a gardenia. :ninja: :ninja: :ninja:

i sent these to my aunt so linking from some fb url.

some night shots:



like these.. they are too intense for potted plants. maybe need to find smaller ones then..

yea it's a bummer. especially considering we told the other candidates that we were going w/ someone else.

not worth even trying to salvage that at this point. need to find another golang backend dev now. feeeh!

kid really handled it like a noob. :<

he apologized "profusely" in email (two short emails eh..). if i did something like that, i'd have to go apologize in person & accept a kick in the balls. not even kidding. something like that deserves a true, in person apology.




im on a bougainvillea binge. the solar uplights are cool too. looks really good in person. that's the effect i was trying to achieve.

actually did some halloween prep.. carved a pumpkin, got tons of candy, etc.

only saw ~5 sets of trick-or-treaters. some people skipped my house - even tho i was outside with a big bucket of candy and my pumpkin (derpkin) lit up. odd.

me excited about halloween:



me surprised halloween was such a dud, making up for it by setting my dude on fire:

ok so nowi  have 10 bougainvilleas...  :o

which was the goal/experiment. so now i can chill with getting more plants for a bit, and just try to nurture these :d

will post some photos eventually. lots of rain today - no sun etc.



really loving it tho.. they make me feel happy when i see them in the back yard. hah.

oh also i got stabbed/cut by the big one i got today. also stepped on a thorn barefoot (while potting it), went right into my foot. cool thing is tho, didn't even care. i respect that those plants can defend themselves. lmao.

we moved into our new office. it could probably fit ~15 people or so. pretty cool.

3 years ago: 2 people (me/my boss) working remote
2 years ago: small office (capacity ~4 people)
1 year ago: slightly bigger office (capacity ~7 people)
today: bigger office (capacity ~15 people)

now i just need to figure out where me/dev team should be.. i kinda like the area in this photo. it's a cozy spot but still a nice view. dno yet.







~80" tv going on the wall.

yea, the view is great. view was even better in the previous office (upstairs, 2nd floor), but the view is still great on the ground floor.

2nd floor view was really nice, but the office space was much smaller, so the new spot is definitely nicer.

this office building is in a great location. it's right next to a really nice park (clay tennis courts, bball court, baseball fields, skate park). then on the other side it's basically cozy residential (nice homes). Boca Raton is really nice, lots of gr8 spots in this city.

hah thanks! :highfive:

boss plans to get a clean/slick mural of the GoLang Gopher (mascot) in there - since golang basically helped transform the business from a software perspective. Go also makes up the vast majority of our code base. ie 90% Go, 10% Javascript.
