It’s so nice to have gotten a good night’s sleep. Younger stayed in her bed again all night for the third day in a row and I am so excited what that means for Missus and our mental heath. It’s about time.
Speaking of Missus, she’s decided to grow with her nos, and has decided to step down from a couple of the various volunteer projects that she was working on. She stepped down from a professional industry legislative committee a few weeks ago — really they had no clue what they were doing anyways — and she’s also resigning as vice president of a regional labor council. Today the whole family is going across town to do a door-knocking lit drop shift and then she is officially done.
She’s telling everyone that it’s temporary, that she needs more time with the kids and now her mom’s sick and needs trips to and from doctor’s appointments, but I don’t really think she’ll go back to it. Things are going to change too fast.
Yesterday’s BTC run felt like validation for many people, myself included. It’s fun — and distracting — watching these moves up and realizing the freedom that’s attached to it. My Perp position is up more since April than I used to make in a year, not to mention the value of my spot holdings. It’s nuts.
I went to pick up Thai food last night, and the man behind the counter asked me how my week was doing. I was kind of taken aback because it’d been so long since a stranger asked me that. I told him that it was great, that it was hard to believe that I do what I do for a living, answering to no one. Then I left without tipping.
I decided this morning that I’m going to start working on the excellent Programming on Solana tutorial by PaulX. I’m going to work through the exercises and everything. Then I’m going to do the Anchor version of it that I saw floating around. Then I’m going to figure out how to make some contracts of my own. I need something that will let me distribute tokens to SAIAdao members. And I need lots of front end tools built that will let members claim those tokens. The multisig and governance modules all require knowledge of how to create instructions, and I need to be able to do that.
Girls are awake, time to go.
