1h I did an hour of ruby homework today and also met up with a friend who graduated from Launch Academy 4 years ago. He had some really good insight on how to make it through, what to focus on, and what makes a good portfolio project. Most of all he helped calm my nerves and convince me that it will be doable (just hard) and that I will end up with a job (even if it takes a little while) There is a small part of my mind that knows those things already, but it often gets drowned out by the louder, more emotional side.
I posted to slack that my pry was broken and two of the ee’s were working on fixing it as well. They ended up figuring out that a recent os update had somehow broken it, and all I needed to run was:
ln -s /usr/local/opt/readline/lib/libreadline.8.0.dylib /usr/local/opt/readline/lib/libreadline.7.dylib
From what little I can tell that makes a symbolic link (like an alias) from one libreadline to the other. All I care about is that it fixed pry!
In non-coding news I went to a breadmaking class at a local brewery called slumbrew. It was about how to make bread with the spent grain left over after making beer. It was great to get out with a friend, and I bet the bread will be great when I bake it tomorrow!
