I watched a few YouTube videos and learned how to sew hair extensions into my wife’s hair. They came out great.
Now, all of her friends are trying to make an appointment with me 😂
If running a software company doesn’t work out, I at least have a bright future doing hair! 💇♀️
After building it 7+ years ago, I have finally updated my agency’s website. It’s now running on Hugo using the Portio theme and hosted for free on Github Pages. Good bye Squarespace!
My neighbor lived to be 109. This is what I learned from him.
Think freely. Practice patience. Smile often. Forgive and seek forgiveness.
Feel deeply. Tell loved ones how you feel.
Be soft sometimes. Cry when you need to. Observe miracles.
Long read, but well worth it. Beautiful article.
Navajo president drops in at new skatepark in the Navajo Nation!
The president of Navajo Nation here in New Mexico freakin shreds in the new skatepark they just opened. Also, Tony Hawk was there…
Tonight, I accidentally signed up for Hot Yoga sculpt instead of the regular hot yoga. It was literally one of the most intense hours of my life. Apple Watch puts my heart rate in zone 5 for more than 50% of the workout (that’s like 170bpm).
By the time I got out, my head was spinning like I had just smoked 2 cigars and drank a few whiskeys.
So…I’m pretty sure I’m going again next week (on purpose this time).
I wonder if I accepted every meeting with growth agencies that can “guarantee” me new clients and ever recruiter that can “guarantee” me great developers, it would result in an infinite revenue glitch.
I have tried out BlueSky and just can’t get into it.
For now, I’m sticking with micro.blog and Mastodon
I spent last night presenting to our town’s Planning and Zoning commission (picture a courtroom with 6 judges and me standing at a podium) in order to obtain a short term rental permit for a house my wife and I recently renovated.
After about 1 full hour of discussion (among them, I’m not allowed to participate past my 3 minute presentation) around septic tanks, they finally ruled in favor of my permit.
It was a pseudo success as they added a condition that I upgrade the septic, which will cost north of $10K.
It was one of the more bizarre experiences of my life and I felt like I was in a real life episode of Parks and Rec.
TIL a new phrase from my wife:
Prom Legs noun When you don’t shave your legs for 2+ weeks. Then when you finally do, they are extremely smooth for prom (or any other occasion).
First road trip in the Tesla complete! Overall it was a great experience.Using Auto steer on the freeway makes the driver feel more like a passenger. While you still have to pay attention, it relieves the “driver fatigue” that you experience on long trips.
I was helping my 6th grader with his coding homework. I seriously don’t understand how a kid without a software dev as a parent is supposed to be able to help.
Today we worked on arrays and using the modulus (%) operator to draw a repeating bookshelf.
It was super fun.
“What becomes clear, though, is that good days are precious. When you’re feeling even a little creative, don’t wait. Write it down, roll tape, speak up. When you’re feeling reasonably healthy, go for a walk.
They’re all good days, if we choose.” Seth Godin
Does anyone have a Bluesky invite that they are are willing to share?
A sweet old lady came up to me today in the gym and said “I just love what you do here”. For context, I do mostly calisthenics workouts (push-ups,pull-ups, tricks, etc…). It definitely made my day :)
This page about Tech Independence by Derek Sivers is great. It’s very “indieweb-ish” and has lots of great tips to limit your big tech dependance. He goes a bit more into detail on this episode of the Tim Ferris Podcast.
It’s planting season, and I just don’t feel like gardening this year. I still haven’t installed a watering system in the garden, and the thought of manually watering daily sounds monotonous. 🌱
I literally found forestry.io on the exact day they discontinued the product. It solves all of the CMS challenges I was facing for a client project. It’s too bad that I won’t be able to use them.
It looks like they are migrating to tina.io which appears to be a bit more complex.
Hopefully, I can use Tina in much the same way as Forestry.
Any CMS suggestions?
This was a fun read. I have always wanted to make games, but I inevitably pick something with an enormous scope and never complete it.
Last night I went to a local council meeting to show support for a friend of mine wanting to covert his home into a restaraunt. The meeting was exactly like on the show Parks and Recreation. What a crazy experience.
