These are the things I spend the most time puzzling about. Ranked by urgency. Updated from time to time.
I've been working towards making Meetable more useful to others by making it easier to configure and deploy. I took a few shortcuts during the initial development that let me finish it faster, primarily by offloading authentication and image resizing to external services. While that's great for me, ...
I went on a date with a young woman who didn't wanna sneak snacks into the movies. Not sure which direction life has taken her but I hope she's well because I wasn't sticking around for that.— Smoke (@terrill) January 16, 2020

As of today, I am the first woman of color to have ever been promoted to the rank of full professor in the USC English dept. I promise I will not be the last.
