Holy shit I developed black and white film last night! And it worked!
I don't have a lightbox and a loupe, so I can't tell exactly how the negatives turned out, but they all turned out! I'm SO excited.

After basically a day meetings, I'm just now sitting down to write the day's code (when most of my office is leaving).
I don't fetishize "writing code bruh" the way a lot of tech people seem to, but at the end of the day (literally) it's what gives me progress to report in the meetings.
Meetings are necessary and important, because I'm a stakeholder in my own work, but so too is actually writing the infrastructure, scripts, pipelines, etc. that power the day-to-day.

I just bought a house!
I took a leap and just ordered a film developing kit from B&H. And by kit, I mean a bunch of supplies that I picked out myself.
Gonna start with Ilford chemistry, since my darkroom offers Sprint, and will eventually try Kodak! I've heard iffy things about Cinestill's reliability, so I'll skip them for now.
Also included: 5 rolls of Kentmere to practice with.

My ideal Friday is spent on a train to nowhere, transitioning from city to countryside and back again.
Sitting by a window, staring out at the rain lashing the trees or godlight streaking through clouds.
A hot cup of coffee or tea.
Sometimes music, sometimes silence.
And of course, an unreasonably nice bathroom onboard.
@SelectElderberry Wow teenage engineering designed a camera!? How did I not know about this 😆 I always admire their synths a bit pricey but they are always cool.
Sellers on Amazon want $8+ USD for Kentmere 400. In case you don't know, if you pay over $5 USD for a roll of Kentmere, you're over-paying. $8+ USD is highway robbery.
