Happy 2015

A new year has begun. I’m 28 days late in writing about it, I haven’t left my house in over 48 hours and HOLY SHIT HOW AM I 44?

A few happenings.

I made a podcast and website about tabletop games because that’s a great way to get rich and it’s costing me $60 per month. It’s a labor of love but so is actual labor and some of you know how that feels (ladies).

Recently had an existential crisis when I realized that I’m 11 months from 45 and I don’t yet have the smashing career OR the convertible BMW that compensates for the lack of a smashing career. So I’ve started a gratitude journal to help me focus on the positive. It’ll be public, and you’re free to read it.

This happened.

I’ve also created a paper journal based on Shawn Blanc’s ill-named “Core Curriculum” idea (oh, the politically-charged hotheads that’ll find me now). I’m using a Hobonichi Techo for the project, which is Japanese for “I spent $34 to have a paper journal shipped literally across the planet even though I could drive to Staples and get one for twelve bucks.” It’s a very efficient language.

I found this in the bathroom:

My daughter got pointe shoes and I cried because I don’t remember ever seeing her that happy/confident/proud. Those are the moments I wish I could capture, dehydrate, crush into a power and snort on those days when I feel like the Worst Parent Ever.

Finally, I’m writing here again. Not about Apple, because the Internet does not need another middle-aged white guy spouting off about tech.

Welcome, 2015.
