New Camera Day!

[03/04/2017] Got the D5600 today from my local photo store. This is my first "new" camera ever (it's recent enough there's no used ones really available)- and my last D5000 I bought used in 2009, so I'm excited for a camera upgrade after 8 years. Technology has really improved (plus all the issues my D5000…

Day 105: Leap Up

[10/19/2016] Spent the day mostly working on the business: morning at the bank to get my business account set up (Rivermark Credit Union!) - brief interlude for coffee with Patrick downtown, and an incredibly hard lunchtime work out (it's called Pyrolates and holy crap it was hard- I am sore in new places and I…

Bowie in the Street [67/365]

[09/11/2016] What an epic final day of the conference. To sum it up simply: a great day. Things that happened today included walking around on 5-inch platform boots all day dressed as Ziggy Stardust, seeing some truly fantastic talks, meeting amazing creators, and getting to ride around on a KARAOKE BUS singing with everyone, which…

Winking in a Cafe [63/365]

[09/07/2016] Working on slide decks, working on side business, working on podcasting studio, Bar Method class, reading books. Generally, I'm just trying to get back to a productive place. This is a workfrom.co meetup at Americano (everyone just works from a cafe together) and after that I grabbed the CSA and went to Homebrew Website…

Clean it Out [27/365]

[08/02/2016] Today had short but surprisingly challenging morning run, went to work on emails and design all day, and then after work, I helped clean out this old airstream trailer that we're working on turning into a podcasting studio. Question: I'm having this bizarre issue with my Nikon D5000 where it will only work on…

The Meter [25/365]

[07/31/2016] On a Whim this morning, after someone pointed out this meter for the US election, Aaron decided he would use his morning to build me one. He did a bit of soldering and made a tiny wifi meter that changes its hand based on the Using PredictWise's aggregated presidential winner data. If it switches…

Hang me out, I’m #peaklily [22/365]

[07/28/2016] So our city transportation department does different characters in the bike lanes. A few weeks ago, the Portland Bureau of Transportation director called me (I sit on a committee she staffs) and asked if I had any suggestions for where to put a Prince bike lane symbol, as the leader of the Bowie Vs…

Staring Out [09/365]

[07/15/2016] Not much to report. Barre3 at 6AM, followed by work (making buttons and designing things and dealing with Drupal), drink at new bar with former coworker and friend Melinda, back to work, then home for the evening. We stayed up WAY too late after work. Mood: 3.5/6 Sleep: 6h,54m (10:42PM to 05:36AM) Miles Biked:…
