hi I'm Leah! I'm a computer science major and software developer at a startup in the salt lake city, utah area. also it's worth mentioning that i'm married to a great dude named stephen.

I used to blog a lot about CS and programming stuff but now this is mostly cute animals and things that make me laugh and really dumb things that come out of my brain!

 

I volunteered to be a practice model for this girl who is an assistant at a salon and she cut all my hair off! it’s too short for me I think but in about a month or two it’ll be perfect.

My buddy Tom baked a cake for his Argentinian friend to cheer her up after the world cup loss.
…they are no longer friends.

Used to have short hair, now I have less short hair. I kind of want to cut it shortish again but idk. Pls advise? (1st two pics are me about a year ago, last two are me now)

Sorry for awkward selfies

oh also ever since we got a breadmaker for our wedding i have been so obsessed with making bread and various bread products. i even made homemade hot dog buns today to eat our costco hot dogs on. so yeah you could say it’s getting pretty serious

this is my cute husband helping me arrange flowers for a wedding i did this past weekend.
floral design is a hobby of mine, but a few months ago i started seeking out clients just to see what it’d be like. at this point i have done flowers for 3 weddings. tbh it’s Stressful As Hell. i’ve now stopped seeking out clients and am going to avoid doing any more big weddings at least until i graduate. 
i was up until 3am one night this weekend because i literally had to make 17 flower crowns and 30 boutonnieres. my fingers are hurting just thinking about it. (actually I don’t have to imagine it because they’re still rly sore.)
also, this weekend’s client texted me after her wedding, telling me she was disappointed that i didn’t make boutonnieres for their grandfathers. she never asked for those!!! and they weren’t in the contract we agreed on!! i told her that and she was like “ok well I just wanted to give you some feedback.” UM ALRIGHT… .. .  ……!?!??
i guess that’s just how people are. i’ve never had a client/customer-facing job before this, and i think i’m finally starting to understand why it sucks in a lot of ways.
overall i’ve had good experiences but i would never want to pursue being an actual florist. the whole time i’m wrapping up bouquets and corsages, i’m fantasizing about the comfort of my weekday software development job where i get to create with my brain instead of my achy fingers. i actually can’t wait to go to the office tomorrow, sit at my chair, and know that i have the whole day to think and build and contribute. i really do have it good.
anyway there are today’s ramblings
