i'm elizabeth but my friends call me lizzy or liz, so you can call me that too! since we're friends, right?
i like math. a lot. i like functional programming in lisps and elixir. i love the warm embrace of type safety (and as close as we can get with typescript).
i like programming most waking hours of the day to keep the bad thoughts at bay and use my brain on stuff no matter how unnecessary or how little it contributes to my skill development or social abilities. maybe the grind and ticking things off the list of things to do before i die is what keeps me alive heh.
i hate war and i hate poverty.
i hate myself too but that's okay i can deal with it; i have for these twenty long years. love from family and my fiance helps with that.
anyways sorry for that. life is good right? :D

infra and others
obviously you're on git.simponic.xyz, so you'll know i own this.
but all my "homelab" infra; my mail server, dns servers, web servers, etc. are all deployed with ansible. including the site you're on!
there are a lot of other projects you can explore. try to find my 3d engine and operating system, that i wrote at the young ages of 16 and 17 respectively.
