Last week was kind of half-and-half. Half was really good. I was riding the energy. The other half I wished I made some different decisions. The energy was riding me. Still having a hard time adjusting to the different schedule and demands of running the house half the time and running work half the time. Sometimes I don’t think I’m getting better at it and I resist that thought rather than be ok with it like I should. This being human thing can be tough sometimes.

Enough of that though, on to the weekly selection of what I was reading, drawing, writing, and getting up to.


I had a moment with one of my favorite hip-hop artists (can I call them that?), Amerigo Gazaway and felt very thankful for having their work and wrote On The Miseducation of Eunice Waymon and supporting good things.

I finished a project to make a Minecraft Dungeons-themed birthday invite using Affinity Designer and it turned out alright!

Minecraft themed party invite with Minecraft lettering and imagery.

I finished a jar of what I consider to be the best condiment ever: peanut rãyu. You should try it, seriously.

I remembered that a day out in nature makes everything better on my annual hike up Ben Lomond.

I spent as much time as I could outdoors while I waited for my unconscious to open a door and beckon.

Last but not least, check out what I’m up to now.
