1) I watched The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel the other night with Emily, and it was a really solid movie. If you’ve never seen either of these, you should check them out. Maggie Smith is a living God.
2) My experience at Recurse Center is so subtantially different from my daily life as a middle school teacher in Inwood, I can’t leave the many ways unspoken. I saw a celebrity, Jesse Palmer, the other day while walking to RC (never seen a celebrity in Inwood). There’s constantly tourist and tour busses going up and down the street (no tour busses venture into Inwood). I get to sit all day at RC (ya rarely sit as a middle school teacher). And, it’s so quiet here at RC, just a few quiet conversations while most RCers work on their projects (I think I’ve experienced hearing damage as a middle school teacher). I get a lunch break, and I can go out to buy lunch if I want to (no time for lunch breaks when you’re teaching).
4) I’ve been trying to split my blog up into “fun” posts (which this one is) and “technical” posts, like this one. You can see I even linked to the two different types in the navigation bar at the top of the site. Fun posts are just updates about me, my RC experience, and some quick updates about my projects. Technical posts are written for programmers and are on some coding-specific topic. Basically, my mom, a non-programmer, can enjoy the “fun” posts, and my brother could read the “technical” posts.
