Today was rough

I’ve been having trouble falling asleep and the past couple nights, probably either due to too much caffeine or alcohol withdrawal. And I’ve been waking, or being woken up, rather, several times throughout the night, so the past few days I’ve been in a mood.

The kids haven’t helped. Both of them are trying their best to test the limits, and it’s been a battle. Elder seems to have fallen behind on her homework and has been boycotting it. I let her deal with the ramifications yesterday, but today I put my foot down and wouldn’t let her watch TV or play outside with her friends. Missus managed to get her to sit down this afternoon. It takes a village. I’ve been trying to drill the last few letters of the alphabet with Younger. She’s been getting caught up with lowercase b, d, g, p and q. So I thought up a mnemonic to help her remember: big dogs go poop quickly. Mature, I know, but she won’t forget it. I’ve promised her an ice cream party once she gets her letters down, and these will be the last of them.

I spent some time today exploring homeschool options. Unschooling, actually, but I have to start somewhere. I’m not really sure how we’d pull it off.

I’ve got an appointment scheduled Friday to sell my car. It’ll be a big change. It’s a sellers market, in cars and real estate. One of our neighbors sold their house the day it was listed, and I’m wondering if we could figure out a way to move back in with family and sell ours also, while the going is good. I’d be able to pay of student loan debt in four years.

I spent the rest of the day working. I had a few tasks throughout the day, they were spread out enough that I was able to spend enough time researching market opportunities and reading up on the “debate” from last night.

Voyager CEO Says Revenue Growth Accelerates 8-Fold as DeFi Trading Surges: I’d never heard of these guys before, but bitcoin mining companies and exchanges seem to be my thing right now, so I pulled the trigger on an order for these guys without too much thought. I did my calculations on risk management and put in a lowball order.

Last Night’s Debate

I’m not going to say anything about it, but I’m actually somewhat optimistic given what happened. I take it as a sign that Trump thinks that he’s losing and knows that he’s going to jail broke if he loses. Sure, it makes him dangerous, but it was all on display for everyone to see last night.

I’m going to spend the rest of the evening working through the Rust book. I saw a posting for a Rust/Solidity engineer, and that seems right up my alley. There seems to be a lot of stuff going on with Polkadot that looks really interesting, so I want to get in on the action as soon as possible.

I’m so over my current job.
