Lessons From 1000 Days of Sobriety

1000 days of sobriety

Today marks 1,000 days since I surrendered to my fight with alcohol. in these last 24,000 hours of sobriety I have learned a few things.

Why I Removed My Social Media Apps

“Madness is something rare in individuals — but in groups, parties, peoples, and ages, it is the rule.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche The whole world seems to have gone crazy.

Remove Stale Git Branches

Another issue I commonly have to deal with in the multitudes of repositories I oversee and manage: stale git branches. Gitlab has a pretty good interface for pointing these out.
