4/29/21: Vaccinated

Posted on

2:30 p.m Short post ’cause there’s just so much work stuff to do. Bill and I got our second Pfizer shots on Tuesday and then met up with Suzanne at Moody’s. Yesterday, I felt pretty crappy. I didn’t feel as bad as I’d feared I would, based on people’s warnings. Bill is feeling it today […]

4/18/21: Streaks are hard

Posted on

8:29 p.m. So much for updating this several times a day. Every week is a new week though! The work week ended well and then Bill set up the projector. We watched the first half of the movie Heat. I’m pretty sure I’d seen that in the theater and I’m amazed that I had the […]

12:25 p.m. Helloooooo! Just another day more or less. Bill had insomnia, so he’s still asleep. Bummer. He did leave me a little present though. This was in addition to the tv projector he got me/us earlier this month. (P.S., we agreed we don’t do presents!!!) Bill gave me a gift card for a massage. […]

Stats, Data, and Rock & Roll

Posted on

I think Facebook thinks I’m a bot. William Steffey and I are putting some serious focus on promoting his music this year. Running ads on Instagram is the first part of that. A Facebook business account comes with a lot of data, so surely I can use my statistical background to get us some sort […]

Priority Shift

Posted on

I was planning on a big catch-up post for today, then I got a call yesterday evening about a temp job starting this morning. I made two posters over the weekend, and I have so much to say about the process – instead, I’m brushing the lint off my pants suit and packing a sandwich. […]

The weekend got away from me

Posted on

Things started well enough yesterday. I researched Henderson Bromstad Art Co, and started work on a self-portrait with text. They do a lot of chunky shapes filled with text. Things that look like linocuts, lots of bold colors, messy edges, overlap, repetition. My plan was to make something for the front page of this site, […]

Going to need a bigger boat.

Posted on

I was planning to do a follow-up post with my list of projects from Evernote. That would be easier said than done. The attached image shows some, but not all of my lists. Instead of overwhelming you with all of this nonsense. I’m going to dig in on my own and pick a few to […]

Relaunch, Step 1

Posted on

Hi, all. Last week, I started working through the book Relaunch You, by Catherine Morgan. I’m trying very hard to make my job search work and a big part of that is figuring out what I really want and focusing on it. I brainstormed on the first set of questions and, here, I’m going to […]

New Project: Conversational Python

Posted on

As I’m trying to learn Python, I try to go to coding Meetups and other events. When I go, however, I’m hit with so many things that I don’t understand that people are discussing so casually. It makes me feel like I’ll never get there. Meanwhile, the coding books and tutorials move so slowly and […]
