Thanks, @sparklingrobots for the poke… I am glad everything is better this week.

Coming off of DrupalCon last week, this week is a nice change of pace… No deadlines.

  • Who are you grateful for this week?
    OMGosh, I am so grateful for the whole Drupal Community this week. Last week I helped with contributions and so many folks came out to help!!

  • What are you working on this week?
    A11yTalks’s April talk is this week and I have been tasked to host.
    I am connecting with folks who came to the Easy out of the Box initiative day last week, getting folks tasks that align with their skills and passions.

  • What are you learning?
    I am taking some leadership classes through the local community college: Collaborative Problem Solving and Diversity Training for Employees and Managers.

  • Any good videos/podcasts/articles you can recommend?
    If have access to the DrupalCon videos… so much goodness came out of the conference.

The week after a big event like DrupalCon always requires some reentry and relearning my daily job. I do what with a computer?!

This week, I am…
:writing_hand: Updating some internal documentation for our team
:gift: Sending out surprises to our Heroes
:rhinoceros: Arranging a fun virtual social event to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the Heroes program

I am motivated by…
:drupal: It was absolutely lovely to see so many folks at DrupalCon last week! It continues to be one of my favorite virtual events

I am demotivated by…
:snowflake: April snow! I live in the Midwest so I know that snow in April isn’t unheard of but I’m over it. I’m ready to dig in the dirt and relax outside on the patio. Instead I am covering all my most sensitive plants and hoping for the best

Happy Friday everyone!

This week turned out to be a whirlwind but, some good stuff came out of it - we finally launched the huge project we’ve been working on for months! Anyone who loves wine, go and check it out! https://www.yourwinestore.com :wine_glass:

We added a lot of new functionality to this compared to the old site and the experience taught me a lot about oAuth and some cool new JavaScript things I’ve never done before, so that was definitely fun and a great learning experience.

Motivated by: spring weather!

Next week I’m finally taking a vacation. I’m going to learn how to paint mini-figures! :man_superhero:

Have a great one!
