Showers, coffee, and ramen are an engineer’s best friend. I ran into a wall while trying to stick my new audio system into Sphere, so I took a shower to think. I probably figured out the solution within ten minutes. Thanks, shower!
I also realized that, most of my life, I’ve half-assed hygiene. It’s such a mundane task that I feel no desire to excel at it. Except for today! In thanks to the shower I scrubbed very thoroughly from head to toe. Now I can write better code. :)
