Good progress on work-related stuff. Didn't have much luck with my own projects this week. I tried to lower the number of database queries django-cast has to do to show the list of all posts for a blog, but it went nowhere. Then I spent way too much time trying to add a pages endpoint to the django-cast API. At least I found out how to integrate a Wagtail API into a local namespace. And finally, there was this cool PR from Dorthe Luebbert I got to merge adding Paprika-Export-Support for kptncook 🎉.

Last Thursday, I had a chaotic neutral encounter at a print shop. As I was getting some documents printed, I noticed a struggling man trying to navigate his iPad. Being the good Samaritan that I am, I offered to help by connecting his device to my phone. But little did I know, I was about to embark on a wild ride of confusion and identity crisis. The man turned out to be none other than Jochen Busse, and as fate would have it, he had also named his phone "Jochens iPhone" just like I had. I couldn't believe it - a Jochen convention right in the middle of the print shop! And to add insult to injury, I now have to change my phone name because apparently, I'm just a regular Jochen. (credits to chatGPT for making this paragraph more "accentuated" 😅).
