I'm home

After almost two straight days of travel, I'm back in Michigan. I got to see a dear friend along the way and explore a bit of London. Did you know you can use contactless payments for almost everything, including the tube? It's amazing!

It's been a long but productive month and I'm grateful for both the opportunity and the people. I miss my friends in Hyderabad and I can't wait to get home. I'm taking a week off to relax and spend time with my cats, who are very happy indeed that I'm home.


About the Nazis in the White House...
And now for something completely different!

One thing not strictly on topic but worth adding: the US government at the direction of the President* are putting children into concentration camps when their families attempt to seek asylum in the US, with the goal of dissuading this entirely legal process. If you were hesitant to call Secretary Nielsen, Secretary Sanders, Vice President Pence, or President Trump a Nazi, let this dissuade you.

They're Nazis and white supremacists, and the vulnerable are paying the price. 2018 elections are coming. Register, vote, and help others get to the polls.

*This process was certainly happening under Obama but nobody really cared. It was wrong then and it's wrong now. We need to look closely at ourselves and our outrage, but this is certainly part of a larger pattern with the Trumpists.

What a show.

Since I left Michigan on the 15th, I've taken three flights, survived food poisoning and a cold, and weathered brutal heat. I've also done a ton of work and met a ton of wonderful people.

The first portion of the trip is over. I'm more or less acclimated, and adjusted to the time change. Of course, we decided to switch to nights on Monday, so I'll have to adjust again, but for now I'm enjoying being a bit more settled.

Speaking of Monday, I'm going to be late to work. One of the team here is getting married, so we're all taking it in shifts to attend the wedding! I'm looking forward to the experience and sharing it with the team. I didn't bring anything wedding-appropriate on the trip, so I'm heading off to the mall today to pick up a blazer or something.

And as for clothes, I made a friend at work this week because of my shoes. Yes, my shoes. I'm not much of a shoe person, but I recently bought a couple pairs of Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81s.…
