2023-03-23: Daily Update

Today for breakfast there was French toast, yogurt and bananas. There was nothing left, I guess it was good. For lunch, it was leftover kimchi fried rice, 12 grapes, Nutella sticks and a small pack of chips. My husband cooked dinner because I wanted to work a bit more.


Kids had swim and my daughter French class. She has forgotten to speak French, she only went to kindergarten in France and that was 5 years ago but she still has a good accent, better than mine. The boys still remember it, specially the oldest.


I read this blog post on code coverage from Chelsey Troy and I liked the reflection. Like everything in life, there is no black or white and metrics can sometimes give you a false sense of security. It also made me laugh when she says that numerical scores are like catnip for programmers. So true, specially if they come with green checkmarks.


At work I finished the PR I wanted to finish and that felt great. Next week I am on vacation and I don’t want to leave things half baked, or I will be thinking about it. Tomorrow I am going to update the specs for the project with the latest info and another engineer can continue my work while I am not there. I also had one more meeting with my mentee before she goes on the 3 month sabbatical we get every 5 years.


I started listening to Ikigai, and got some books on the Kindle app, in preparation for next week trips. The Song of Achilles, that was free with Amazon Prime and Good without God that was on sale and I got with Kindle credits. I have 10 books on hold on the library app but I have at least 4 weeks wait for the first one.

And that’s it for today!

    French was the first language I spoke, until when I was 3 years old, and then I switched 100% to Portuguese and ‘forgot’ French. The funny thing for me is: I can listen to most french movies without subtitles and understand + whenever I speak it, my accent is almost native. Yet, I lack the grammar and vocabulary so I never ever speak french. I keep it as an internal super power, I guess :p
