Android development is just too hard and too bloated in comparison to web development. There is a ton of things, half of them are deprecated, there are no clear examples on the official Android website (at least I wasn't able to find them), there are no screenshots showing how stuff could look (hey, you have AOSP, you have your own design guidelines!). UI seems to be driven by a bunch of XML files (and I don't think I could inject stuff into this thing like with HTML and JavaScript - or could I?), and I just can't comprehend it.

Things like this make me want to drop programming and just go brew coffee in a nearby cafe. Things like this make myself feel like a disappointment to the whole world. Things like this make me feel useless.

I wish webapps could integrate with system more. Provide calendars, widgets. Maybe I just need something like Firefox OS. Except it's DEAD.

I just proved to professor that Google Java code style uses 2 spaces as indentation. Professor... changed our code style.

Yes, I am ranting. I mean, lingua franca of programming and IT is English. I may sound a bit privileged here, but if you don't understand English, what are you even doing in programming and teaching programming?! If you can't even understand a citation of the document **YOU** dropped on our Trello board, what's the point?...

Cited an English document to our professor. She misunderstood me and thought I said the exact opposite.

Just getting back from college. I have a branch for venues and check-ins almost done, but I also need to make a filter for queries to not show private posts to unauthorized users and to make draft posts. Probably it's time to make my DB backend modular. This'll cause a merge conflict though... Git is still saving me

Accidentally reversed order of posts on my testing instance while rewriting the cache.

Can webmention.io really be called webmention.io if it only serves as an input, not output for webmentions?

College mates: *sending a class schedule*
Homeroom teacher: On the 2th you'll be working on the usual schedule...
The usual schedule: *gets changed without me knowing*

Anyway, I'm stuck in the college for two hours with nothing to do.
