Week 521

Andrew Hyder died. A truly a wonderful man. I'm not sure what to say about it other than he was young and healthy and his body still betrayed him, and I feel very lucky that I was able to work with him when I did (at CfA) and get to know him and his wife. Life is short and unpredictable, so make the most of it while you can.

He's not the only death we've had - we've lost other people during the pandemic (all young, smart, men, for varying reasons). It's been really hard and sad for a lot of people.

Alex and I are doing some living for a while, so we're on the road for a bit. Will report back later!

Week 516

Week 514

The only thing worth mentioning this week is that today I was vaccinated for COVID-19!

Week 512

Week 510

Stationary bike arrived. Declared putting it together yesterday's workout, so wish me luck on future endeavors. I had a practice go on it and it's much harder than I expected.

This week I finally put out my first prints on Deadpan Studio. I've been noodling on some paintings and stuff the last few months and via some very kind encouragement, mostly from Monica - a fellow shy, but actually quite good, artist -, I decided to just actually follow-through on making something all the way from idea to print. It's been fun doing it, to be honest, including figuring out how to actually sell something online and package it and all of that stuff. I'm incredibly self-consicious about "doing" art at all, but it feels sort of nice to have a specific outlet for that now, and I'm not expecting to turn a profit, just have a bit of fun. I'm currently working on some oil paintings I intend to share there.

Mum & Dad got their first vaccines this week, their second will be in May! Feel good about that. I can actually, maybe, possibly, imagine getting to go home late this summer.

That's it. I'm really bored of cooking.
