Things are going shit
Getting it from all the sides
Everything falling down

my inside is outside
my right side's on the left side
listening to my

youtube music so not really
records like I said

we don't care about art
there's no time to think about it
only time to react to

all the shit. ha ha.

The Week That Was

Monday was a day off work and I rode almost 40 miles after having ridden over 30 miles the day before. I was wrecked after all that. I was eating everything in sight and napped a couple of times later that day. But it felt so good to be out...

Most bananas ride I've been on in a long time

Abe wants me to create moreΒ  metadata in my posts, so here goes.

Saturday I really needed to ride, but I'd stayed up kind of late Friday night, so I didn't wake up early enough to join any morning group rides. When I woke up it was wet outside but...

As I look back on my 2021, it's hard to land on a single theme. Persevere, maybe. Ride, maybe. "Narrow Focus" was my theme going in. I don't think I did so well in that regard. I recently wrote:

As I pause myself to reflect on this last season, to recuperate...

Hello, 2022

My writing habit took a major hit towards the end of 2021. The trigger was when I lost my job in October. I'm not sure why that was the trigger. Maybe all my creative energy had to go into re-writing my resume, writing cover letters, preparing for interviews, making sure...

Dark Patterns are Dark

I need a Chrome extension that stops me from clicking on Twitter links. I'm not against Twitter or people linking to Twitter. It's just that I'm not logged into Twitter, so every time I click on one of those links, a giant modal is thrown up in my face demanding...

Today I rode my bike in shorts and a short-sleeved jersey. Tomorrow we celebrate Christmas here at the house--early because Monday, we fly to Florida for our first family reunion since well before the pandemic started. We return the following Monday and the next morning I start my new job.

I'm currently reading 5 related nonfiction books. Two for book clubs. One is a book club I started. To which I was super late tonight.

I mentioned a couple in my list the other day. But the 5 are:

The Second Mountain by David Brooks. Not sure yet if I would...

I need a task app to manage my task apps

- I'm now trying Amazing Marvin and Routine on top of Notion for tasks. Routine somehow crossed my desk a few weeks ago and it's been helpful for planning my day, but with my main task management in Notion, and its Notion integration (which, I don't know how that works...

I'm working on a personal bibliography (a literary uses page if you will). Here's what I have so far.

Life stuff:

Man's Search for Meaning by Frankl. Probably the most influential book in my life, I read it in high school or college. Haven't re-read it in a while, need to...

Why Minecraft is like programming

Exhibit A: A player gathers raw materials (the standard library) and crafts those materials into objects, which in turn can be crafted into still other objects. This crafting takes place on a crafting bench (the compiler). If the raw materials are not arranged precisely, the new object does not compile.
