I started on a second iteration of my terrible static site generator. I'd consider it my first serious programming project (pretty much everything on Github right now is "recycle bin" material that I've uploaded to look active). I've only worked on it a little bit but so far there are about 50 lines of code that work to generate a basic website from different markdown files and a template html file.
I have been getting into somewhat heated debates in my "Ethics in the Computer Age" class. All in good fun, of course, but worth mentioning here so I can smile when I read this someday.
I also commented on this blog post, which is new (I have barely participated on the public internet (non-anonymously) for years). It's honestly more to see how I feel about interacting with people online than anything else. I misspelled my handle by accident, which is actually a good thing, because one of my primary anxieties about participating online is the instant, permanent record it creates. I always recommend using a pseudonym (unless there's a very specific reason to use your real name) to my friends and family. However, I'm an adult now, so I'm dipping my toe in with knowledge that I'm probably less likely to say something that I'll regret than when I was 17.
