Yay For Toastmasters!! !

[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Twelve]

Just realized JUST NOW that I’m speaking tomorrow night at Fedora Women’s Day 2020.

I applied when I was feeling fine, but then the acceptance and follow ups and nudges arrived when I was very sick.

Tomorrow! Morning! OpenStack! On! Packet!

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Fifty Five]

Two weeks ago I was on vacation and not really doing the technical stream thing except then I had a look over the OpenStack on Packet repository, ended up auditing the entire README.md, making a series of pull request, became an official collaborator on the project and said I’d be running it the following week.

On Twitch and YouTube and Twitter!! !

But first the news:

I’m ludicrously #SQUEEE about the next year.

I am joining not one but TWO events next week because I MUST DO ALL THE THINGS!

But first the news:

I also should probably STOP doing two events in a single week as it means on Tuesday night when I’ve done the second thing I’m going to super CRASH.

And have really wonky dreams.

But I LOVE LOVE LOVE these two events SO MUCH!! !
