THE BLOG

Here is my blog, which I hope to update daily, or at least pretty regularly. A window into my (not) infinitely fascinating life.

Finally published another essay after like two months of working on it off and on, so go have a look! Spent the weekend up in the mountains which was sweet. I went mountain biking and hung out at a lake. If you have mountains near you I highly recommed finding a way to get there.

Added the cars page to the site, finished the paint job on the Honda. It doesn't look great but it's an improvement over what it looked like before.

Went for a bike ride in the morning, then worked on the paint job on my car (Honda's late-2000s paint sucks if you didn't know), sanding and getting ready to spray new clear coat. Went and watched the fireworks in the evening which was pretty cool.

It's been a very busy week for me. I spent a lot of time working and working on some of my projects. The current one is a 1960s Sony Micro-TV that I'm recapping. This thing is tiny! If I get it to work correctly look out for photos on the projects page. I dusted off my banjo that's been sitting in a corner for months and decided to try and practice as much as I can for the rest of the summer. I'll probably bring it to school in the fall too so it doesn't just sit around again. Still trying to get out of the house more but I feel like I'm using my time more efficiently lately. I'm going to try to keep that up and improve further with the remaining ~2/3 of summer.

Spent the morning browsing forums and youtube, went to work in the afternoon. Got home and 3D printed some parts for my car. With gas prices being what they are, I've barely driven anywhere recently, opting for a bike instead. Since the car is just sitting in the driveway, I'm giving it attention and addressing some little issues I've been putting off for quite a while.

Went for a bike ride, then wasted a bunch of time online.

Got back to work on the site. Started this blog page as both a form of self reflection and method of accountability - if I don't have a deadline or other motivation I seldom get things done, but with a set goal (such as "make a daily blog post"), I actually do productive things rather than wasting my day on internet time sinks. This is why goals are important, which might be an upcoming short essay. We'll see. Speaking of essays, There's currently one in the works about artificial vs. real experiences and their value, so stay tuned for that. I got rid of the historic highways page, at least for now. Just a big project that I can't do justice to without actually travelling and documenting things. Also went for a hike this morning which was pretty cool. I really need to get out more and stay off the internet. I'm not generally big on photos, but maybe I'll start taking some trip pictures to throw on here and spice it up.
