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”
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”
I couldn’t resist this scene, at a rest stop, along I-5 on my way back to Sacramento.
//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 just finished the last day of work for the year… Blast it!
My continued love/hate relationship with Instagram continues. Love because it’s where the people I want to keep in touch with are (more so than other social media sites right now), and hate because of… well, everything else. It could be said for any social media site, really. But, it’s stuff lie this that really makesContinue reading “Love/Hate Instagram”
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”
Photo: The above picture is blurry. I caught her staring at me from underneath the tree while I was sitting in the adjacent chair writing out a grocery list. So I quickly switched from Notes to Camera on my phone to grab this shot before she raced away. I have all of our recurring billsContinue reading “Five things for the week”
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”
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”
It’s images like this that keep me coming back to Instagram. Too much to resist.
I like The Rumpus. It’s a great place to discover new writers and learn about the writing process itself. Lately, I have had one of their mug slogans bouncing off of the inner walls of my skull, “Write like a mother fucker”. I need to write like a mother fucker. I write a lot forContinue reading “Write like a…”
This week was a very busy blur. Partly my own doing but mostly because it was just one of those weeks. I reprogrammed our thermostats (one for each floor, which is awesome. This is our first time having two temp zones in a house, and I love it). The previous owner had them set aContinue reading “Five things for the week”
