After getting a short intro to HTML and CSS last weekend, this weekend I got a crash course in JavaScript. Coding is fun! …provided in the end things work as intended. At first I thought the most frustrating thing is looking for a mistake for a long time and then finding out it is a stupid typo in the easiest line, but later I learned that even more frustrating is a bug that our teachers couldn't solve or even explain either and that meant I couldn't complete the last two exercises. (Tbf it would probably have been less annoying if the teachers had approached it better.)
Despite that, the teachers told me they think I have a talent for coding. They said that I seem to understand it quickly and also ask the right kind of questions, and they encouraged me to keep doing it. Always nice to get compliments :) Who knows, maybe I really will study it a bit more.

Last D&D session a new player joined us – and next week he might not be able to make it, and then he'll be on vacation for three weeks, so I don't think the timing is very good… Eh. If he keeps playing the party will have another primary spellcaster; we're pretty magic heavy, I hope that won't turn out to be a problem at some point. Well we already know that the extremely powerful Citadel's view of talented magic users is "with us or against us" and the latter don't tend to survive very long, so there will definitely be repercussions.
Other things that happened last session:
- Our ex-thief/mercenary party member left a threatening message from Lady Rose in a duke's bedroom, and while he was in the castle he also broke into their treasury. As a result we currently don't have any money problems (but some party members are angrier about the theft than others.) Also we're all very sorry that we didn't ask earlier what the trader currency is worth because it turns out the answer is "a lot" and he could have stolen a lot more value per weight. Ahem. (He also stole a mysterious crossbreed skeleton that I promptly took "just in case", my cat was happy.)
- Last time the entire "encounter" with a very powerful enemy was handled by the druid. This time the druid sneaked into the city alone and promptly was discovered and attacked by non-humanoid constructs in much less favorable circumstances. She's currently trying to escape underground as a mole, while the rest of the party (who fortunately were alerted of the danger via my connection with my familiar who'd accompanied the druid) is flying toward the city as fast as we can. On the one hand we're not very far away, on the other hand it's between 20-30 combat rounds… let's hope the druid manages to escape.

For the first time in a while, today I managed to watch a complete Penguins hockey game in real-time :D It is so much fun, especially when like today they're winning. The first line is so great <3 Sid and the kids. Conor Sheary is smoking hot, indeed. Sid is so amazing to watch – that pass on the Rust goal, whoa. On sequences where he doesn't score too, that don't show up on highlight reels so much. Best player in the world.
Geno is also amazing, though he wasn't as outstanding today as he can be (and he took another stupid minor penalty, as he tends to do.) He and Sid seem to take turns with who looks better any given night. The chances that at one point this season the two of them could be #1 and #2 in the scoring race are not bad :)

I have many plans for tomorrow, fingers crossed.
