It turns out maybe contact tracing during a pandemic is not a chill way to do your first techie job. Mostly 50-60 hour weeks and intermittent 70 hour ones in the past couple months. The good news is I get overtime so Iím getting biweekly paychecks that are more than what I used to make in a month.

Also weíre getting a dog. No leads yet but finally got written permission from the landlord. Heís a real piece of work but after some tense phone calls the leaks in our ceiling are fixed and the heat is on so Iím good. Maybe Suspiciously Large Apartment in Brooklyn is a hint that some struggles are coming. Itís cute but sometimes hard not to think about how in Philly or Chicago we could have a way nicer place for a lot less $$$.

Congrats and good luck, because it's hard to get a dog right now! My friend in Brooklyn just got one and it was crazy.
