The internet is not a fun place today. So I kept my head down working on some things. Finished a few. One of my favorite tech things is writing tests. So many programmers do everything they can to avoid writing tests. But not me. I love to see all of those ‘ok’ messages to line up in a neat formation. Sometimes in green. Sometimes unhighlighted.

Tomorrow the plan is to go into DC early for the march. I was at the metro station yesterday to fill up a couple of cards so that we wouldn't have to get tickets tomorrow. There were some women at the machine next to mine also filling up their cards for the same reasons. Mum and Don are going to the march in Sydney. One of my friends from high school sent Lena some socks to wear at the march so that she could be their with us. All this bodes well at least for the numbers.

The last time I participated in something like this was a protest in New York City against the Iraq War back in 2003. I feel pretty safe now saying that war was indeed a mistake.

Thank you! It was pretty great actually. I felt so bummed in November, (and still am in a lot of ways), but it was wonderful to see such a large turnout! To be around people who are also not okay with this (pardon me) bullshit. They had ~6k people in Sydney and ~500k in DC.
