Things from my day to day life that don’t necessarily belong anywhere else in particular.

Still Moving

Slowly but surely I am getting my stuff set back up, the computer was the first part as I am currently searching for a job and need access to my resume files and my email in a manner other than my phone or tablet. Speaking of tablets I am really enjoying my 6th generation iPad…

Snowmageddon 2016

So most of the east coast is currently buried up to its nether-bits in snow in case you haven’t been keeping up with things.  I figured this would be an ideal time to slap my newly purchased GoPro up in the window and let it take time-lapse pictures of the snowfall as it started to…

Analog Thoughts

I had started keeping a journal, and I was discovering that I didn’t need school in order to experience the misery of appearances.
