Got back at it!

Ryan Wilson @rywils21

I've taken a break working on polished.app for almost 2 months now. Between moving and working overtime at my day job I simply haven't had time for it. Some may say that's making excuses, I'm not prioritizing it, etc. etc. That may be true, but I'm totally okay with that.

I've been able to take a real step back and contemplate the direction I want to go. I think it's a valuable perspective I wouldn't have if I remained heads down all the time.

Another benefit of the break is I'm now coming back to the code and having a terrible time understanding what's going on. This struggle is highlighting places where I need to refactor and write cleaner code.
