  • Reading over what I need to edit before I post Level 2 and realising that n00b as a whole is as much about Sirius as it is about Lily and James, and I think that might actually be a first for me.

    #n00b #the older I get the more interested I become in Sirius #and the more I connect with him from a writer's perspective #he has such a huge case of arrested development in the books #and it's fun to delve into how he'd have behaved in an AU having had roughly the same childhood #and being who he is

  • n00b is short for noobie and used to describe new people.  If you wear this title, try not to associate it with being an imposter.  If you are there and you want to be, you most likely belong there.  I am a n00b at my job and am getting used to doing and being that.

    I have been at my job software engineering for a month now.  This is a huge accomplishment that I am so grateful to have the privilege to have done.  Things have been going well. The first week was orientation, the next week I completed my first ticket 3 days sooner than I thought I would, the next week, I got a ticket that I STILL have not completed.  It has been a hard one.  My mentor has been doing some of the coding on it and giving me the excuse that it is “spaghetti” code for why sometimes he will work on it or have me shadow him instead of letting me type as he guides me.  After working so hard on it somedays and not making much progress, sometimes it is relieving to allow him to take the reigns and unblock me, but it was happening a lot: so much so that I had to stop in and say, “Can we only work from my laptop and can you guide me as I type.”  I had to understand his style and not make demands initially, until I saw that I was suffering from not speaking up.  He’s one year younger than me, which I did not expect, and we teach each other.  I did not know he did not know Python, so I get chances sometimes to clean up his code.  For it to only be a month in and I am already making code suggestions and clean ups for senior engineers is inspiring.  

    We are working well together and I feel comfortable asking questions and asking him sternly for him to guide me on my laptop because I am now aware of his intentions for the program.  I always wonder why people sign up to mentor and what they are getting out of it, because, to do it right, it often means sacrificing your free time and peace of mind without an equitable match from the other person.  He told me he wants to work on his communication, that his manager knows of the program and his involvement and that, regardless of if I never complete a ticket, he wants to ensure that I learn and am successful, which is encouraging, and that my success is his success.  It sounded genuine and he is really patient with all of my questions, which he admitted being impressed by.  I guess I had to go through all I went through with bad job experiences.  The best piece of advice I got in my first job out of college was, “If you do not ask questions, you will fail.”  Before then, and a little bit after, I believed that asking questions was a sign of weakness and that I got paid to figure it out myself.  Believing this set me back a LOT.  Now that I know the damage that believing that caused, I am much more confident in asking questions.  I am working on my communication too.  It is a bit difficult asking questions or forming clear thoughts all the time.  I get tongue tied sometimes and forming sentences sometimes almost feels like I’m jamming a lot of things into a filter.  Finding the right words and making it concise is not always easy.  It is similar to when I get into fight or flight mode.  In arguments, sometimes I get so worked up that when I open my mouth, I word vomit obscenities or am not clear.  I am working on it…sometimes I am so confident and clear, but not always. 

    Everyone’s questioning me with, “How are you hanging?  Do you feel school prepared you?  Can you do things on your own?”  The answer to those, respectively, are, “Well”, “Absolutely!”, and “Some”.  By no means am I flying solo, and I am not expecting myself to be able to, nor is there pressure for me to. 

    My manager was out for two weeks unexpectedly, and, although he does not apply pressure overtly or implicitly, it was cool to relax a bit not having him around.  No, that does not mean I slacked off, it meant, I got to do things like take extra time to understand the tickets I was assigned, attend trainings, and practice short keys.

    Mastering short keys has been something I have always aspired to do.  I aspire to ditch my mousepad for keys.  One day, I spent pretty much the whole day practicing them in the Google Suite, Microsoft OneNote, Spotify, Chrome, Stickies and my Mac.  I am getting the hang of it.


    Although my second ticket has taken longer than expected I have learned a lot: how to read error logs and runtime/request graphs, new systems to watch the building of my code, how to revert PRs, rebase. 

    I got called out for working on the weekend.  One of the women who saw me told my manager.  Even worse, she was one of the women from the Black female engineering group I told you all about.  This same woman defended Kim Kardashian’s Kimono line which I told her, as someone who identifies as Black and Japanese, I was offended by.  I felt this was shady.  I do not need my manager doubting, babying, or being suspicious or unnecessarily concerned about me.  I will not confront her or the other woman from the Black engineering group who mean mugs and ignores my smiles.  I will stay focused and let it roll off me.

    I have great mentors, a ton of support pouring in from everyone, even Data Science orgs, and I will not dwell on the negative.  I am not working on the team I picked, but my manager encourages me to keep reminding him of the work I want and encouraging me to seek it through pair programming.  He also reminded me that the team I am on now is not necessarily the team I will be on during my internship and that I will get to elect 3 that I would like to work with, so I am building those bridges now by expressing my interest to any and everyone, taking on tickets from teams and projects that interest me, speaking to managers of teams I am considering, grabbing coffee with colleagues and getting people to review my code and give me advice and opportunities.  I have mentors and advocates and I am so grateful.

    I threw a happy hour slot on my team’s calendar and it was cool learning more about my colleagues.  We started planning all the things we are going to do together and I am excited for them.  I think my manager picked well.  My first manager crashed the party (after inviting me to his team’s HH) and it felt cool being around my old manager and my new.   I have had this before as I had another manager before him, so it was not extremely awkward, but of course it became a little awkward when my first manager started offering me good seats to a baseball game in front of my new manager.  

    He invited my team to karaoke with his team and I was the only one that agreed.  It was cool being with my old teammates and singing karaoke with them.  I am also over the fear of singing karaoke in front of my colleagues.  I have done it at an open bar, but would MUCH rather do it in a private room.  I sang and played DJ most of the night.  I remember the first time I was presented with the invitation of karaoke in front of my colleagues.  It was not even something I remotely considered due to being absolutely timid, but I admired people who could make a fool of themselves in the name of showing bravery to their colleagues in hopes it would translate to respect and promotion/raises.

  • I don’t know who was the voice actor for Roach in non-Polish versions of “Equine phantoms/O czym szepczą grzyby” quest in Toussaint, for us it was Wojciech Mann (radio presenter, actor and comedian). Stoned Geralt discusses the fact that a young mare speaks with a male voice.

    But I ride the Nilfgaardian stallion now, the one I got from Emhyr (the saddle from Gaunter gives it a pretty demonic look. Too bad it’s the best saddle you can get in the whole game, because other than giving 100 horse stamina, it’s awful).

    So I found out that the game ignores that possibility. I guess it’s because GOTY edition was released some time after the premiere of “Blood and Wine”, where the mare Roach is a default, and CDPR didn’t adjust it.

    Ah, well. I’m not complaining.

    In other news, on my laptop I am perfectly able to win the tourney. Yay.
