Unfortunately in these last few months, while I have had incredibly positive and invaluable experiences with the python core development community, I have not done a great job at taking care of my wrists.
Between finishing up the final semester of my bachelor’s degree as strongly as possible, psf internship, Co - organizing the core development sprint, and upcoming code interview prep, I really should have paid more attention to ergonomics and regularly taking breaks. However, as a result of my own negligence, I now have no other choice but to take a break. Hopefully, I’ll be able to return after taking it easy for a few more weeks, but I can’t make any guarantees.
While I know it wasn’t strictly necessary to make this public, I wanted to put this out there as a message of caution to not get caught up in the heat of the moment and lose track of prioritizing one’s own health. Also, after all that this amazing community provided to me, I felt that it was only fair to provide some explanation of my lowered recent activity and in the coming weeks while I recover.
PS I wrote this using primarily speech to text, so I apologize in advance for any grammatical errors if any.
