CMU tutoring  
I almost never mention what's going on in my life on LJ.

Last semester, I did Ruby on Rails tutoring for CMU West. They apparently liked me, so this semester I'm doing it again.

It's pretty cool to step in and help new(ish) programmers learn the ropes, or to help more experienced programmers with the same transition I made a few years ago, learning Rails from a non-web background. I am repeatedly reminded of how much time I've put into this hobby/job/thing I do.

Unrelatedly: Krissy is, like, *this* close to her marathon. Under 20 miles of training runs left, and the marathon is on October 7th down in Long Beach. She's been training and sweating and suffering for this for quite a few months now. And it's within arm's reach. Go her!

Are you a runner as well? I'm always looking for more friends to race with. I'm running the US Half in November, and probably the Kaiser half in February, with some 10Ks in between (including Bridge to Bridge tomorrow). Not doing my first full till next June.

Nope, I don't run. With Krissy running 40+ miles on busy weeks, there's not time for both of us to do it!

running's a drug, man.
stick with heroin.
it's easier to quit and less damaging to your body!
