011: Homestay

img_20160111_202856-01.jpegThe thing about travelling is we have to leave our dog behind. I usually bring her to stay at my parents’ house. I suppose it’s a nice change of pace for her, because she gets to be with other dogs. (Here she is with her sister.)

Nothing like immersion to finally learn your tools. I am getting comfortable with Java, Eclipse, and git. Still an uphill climb, but I like the learning experience.

The stock market fell today. I may have lost some money. Oh, well. I hope it goes back up again. But it might not, for a long while. Lessons learned.

As if that news weren’t bad enough, David Bowie died today. It’s only forever, it’s not long at all.
