Mondays after a three-day holiday weekend are especially rough. I had to continually slam coffee down my gullet at work, with little effect. To add to the general lethargy, I was starting a new project this morning wherein I tried to implement a local server to store JSON and images to the file system. As a front-end developer, this was completely new territory. Most of the morning was spent Googling for Node.js tutorials. Progress was slow, but by early afternoon I was downloading and storing images from an API to the file system. So, a pretty wild Monday.
