I'm very happy with recent changes to my site. Poked at the theme & worked on some taxonomy stuff, and now I'm down to a baseline of 6 requests per page load (plus one per image on the page). Also added a feature where I can group posts by "series" for my occasional multi-part posts (like the Lambda comment system tutorial).
Next step: dropping Bootstrap in favor of much more lightweight stuff, since I don't need 80% of Bootstrap.
It's, I think, another example of how, sincerely, Everyone's Journey Is Different. Like, I'm unrepentantly trans on the Internet, I transitioned openly at work and I'm not planning to go anywhere there, heck I went full time including legally literally FOUR MONTHS into HRT, so I'm not hiding shit - but there is still a lot, physically, that I really, really aspire to.

Her girlfriend's smile widened. 'Am I really so mysterious?'
She was. She was laughter on the wind and a smile in moonlight. She was perfume quickly whisked away.
Pebble was like any other cat; she played, she picked a human to live with, she purred and she prowled.
She was like any other house cat... except she was roughly the size of VW Beetle.
So she lived, unironically, in my unused garage, where she slept all day.
At first I was worried about keeping her fed, but she always seemed... full.
And like other house cats, she'd bring me gifts...
