I was just looking at the about us for some company.
What would my bio be, if I had to right one write now sic?
David is really into charts. Sometimes. And efficiency. And observability. He thinks visualizations are a neat way to load things into your mind hole. He gets self-conscious when writing about himself. He usually has too many tabs open at the same time.
There are times when my tab count just explodes.
Well I have just failed to get snippets working. …
I kinda like that idea for markup of time elapsing.
...20 minutes Well I have just failed to get snippets working. ...
Oh wait I got it!!! Not sure at all what changed just now from a few minutes ago. Buuuuut, I should cool figure out if I can get

My thinking can be disjumbled sic sometimes.
I will occasionally look to the Chicago Style Guide to see what they prescribe, like here for sic.

Ok. Back to that bio.
Meet David. David has a weak sense of smell. He often fantasizes about a world run rampant with smells. He also likes words. David thrives when he has authority and autonomy, if it’s possible to mix those things. If he wasn’t here (on this about page for some company), he’d probably be somewhere else, doing something else that he wants to be doing.
That is not a good bio.
I think one of the reasons applying for jobs can be so draining is it really forces you try to define yourself in a way that you just don’t do all that often. I guess all the company cares about (
mostly entirely) is that you do good quality work for them. But people also like to work with people they generally like.
