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.
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.
