Switched my .ts files to .js and now the project builds in 1.3s. And I don't even feel like I lost anything, because I can still put type annotations in jsdoc comments and get type-aware auto-complete in #vscode!
I just want to feel hope again, y'know?
I'm trying so hard to just take care of myself and those around me, but when every person with an iota of power seems hell-bent on grinding us little people to dust, it's hard to feel optimistic about the future.
So we're blaming inflation on the workers now? What the fuck?
Trying to do #piano practice this morning, and can't get through a single song without getting interrupted by some noisy nonsense or another.
Some days, you just have to give up. 😒

All art is valid, and you're allowed to do whatever helps you make the art you want to make;
Turn the paper around because you can only draw good lines in one direction? It's fine!
Draw in pencil first in multiple iterations? Do it!
Use a million reference images? Yesferatu!
Trace the things you're having trouble drawing? Totes McGoats :D

@artistsandhackers hearing Chris Klimas talk about trying to not take feedback on #Twine personally, and limiting their window to the community around their software for the sake of their own mental health, was super meaningful. I know other developer friends who struggle with the same thing: appreciating feedback throughout development but getting into a depressive state given the constant demand for improvement, as if any success hadn't been made in the time between. Even while forming this window creates a barrier in his ability to fully know what the community is like, the reality is that even if he were tuned into all these channels, there would still be parts of the community he wouldn't know about.
Wow, this opening paragraph goes *hard* 😳
