Teaching is great because sometimes it makes you re-think the overly complicated way you did something in a previous project and come up with something simpler and equally good, just for the sake of being better able to teach it

I fully intend to start using Masto again regularly soon I just haven't had a lot of thoughts to contribute recently beyond what accompanies the day-to-day tedium of driving a bus for money. It just takes a lot out of me mentally. Once my program starts up in the fall and I'm teaching again my thoughts will return (I hope!)
