I’ve ended my first week at Coffee Meets Bagel. Lots of orientation, names to learn, and tools & processes to understand!

I’ve started digging into the code base and was able to made two minor pull requests. I definitely did not earn my pay this week and I’m telling myself to relax and to not beat myself up about it. 

My flight home is delayed. It’s easy to blame the airline, but of course they don’t want the flight delayed either. It’s probably bad weather. On the other hand, I have a shiny new Apple/LG UltraFine 5K display waiting for me at home to unpack and play with this weekend. Can’t wait! Squeeeeeee!


How do you differentiate delusional vs. visionary?

A person has an idea, everyone says she’s delusional and the idea sucks, it fails, they say I told you so. But if it succeeds, they trip over themselves saying how visionary she was and the idea was brilliant.

The ends should never justify the means. But they often justify the post hoc historical judgement.

This irks me.
