The time has come to start the job hunt! It’s so difficult though when the sun is shining and this is the view from the balcony:
It seems like there are quite a few opportunities out there, I just need to filter through what matches my skills and what would be interesting for me.

No more additional “u”s and swapping “z” where I used to use “s.” Using the month/day/year system is now weird for me. I know realize what a completely ridiculous system it is… but I don’t think I’m going to be able to make the entirety of the country see reason.
