Five things for the week

No resolutions for 2019. No projects, writing or photographic. No defined things to change, do, or observe. Just another year, intentionally. I need 2019 to be my “recalibration” year. A year where I can just “be” without expectations. 2018 was difficult. It wasn’t, when compared to others’ 2018 anything remote to “difficult” but, for me?Continue reading “Five things for the week”

Recently read, watched, and listened

Read It may sound weird but, I intentionally avoided reading a lot, this past week. I wanted to keep my mind clear and I wanted to keep myself from “hiding” behind books instead of getting out to enjoy my week off. While that didn’t quite work out as planned, it was still quite nice (toContinue reading “Recently read, watched, and listened”

Five things for the week

//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js This. Just… we just need more of this in 2019. Throughout the whole year. I know that I want to do more. I love random, anonymous, acts of kindness. I’ll be looking to do more in 2019. There’s an 80% chance I’ll be buying a car (used) this week. We have been a one-carContinue reading “Five things for the week”

Read I wasted my time on Lee Child’s The Christmas Scorpion. Sure, it was cheap and just meant to be a short story but, I got no enjoyment from it whatsoever. I can’t even throw my “it’s entertaining because it’s part of a series and even if it is predictable, like every other procedural, IContinue reading “Recently read, watched, and listened”

I’m going to be making a lot of salsa

I have reached the point where I am tired of trying to find the right “jarred” or pre-made salsa, and am now on a mission to begin making my own salsas from scratch. It’s a very odd thing but, I have made salsa from scratch exactly 0 times before this past weekend. At least, IContinue reading “I’m going to be making a lot of salsa”

Recently read, watched, and, listened

Read This article about unlikely friendship has made its round on the internet but, if you haven’t yet read it, I fully recommend it. This post about Product Managers is also a good read. This is the area that I work in, and the area where I’m still learning quite a bit. Product/Project Management isContinue reading “Recently read, watched, and, listened”

That typing noise is really (satisfyingly) loud

There’s going to be a lot of noise coming from my office. Someone (me) got a new mechanical keyboard. So, if you hear non-stop typing (because I love this thing and feel like I can type all freaking day long), it’s me. And, if the sound of my typing annoys you, I’m sorry (not sorry).Continue reading “That typing noise is really (satisfyingly) loud”
