What I'm up to now

Last updated: January 28, 2019

I'm at the end of the time period where I can say I "just recently" moved to Los Angeles, which makes me pretty sad. Less so because of LA, moreso because I don't like the fact that time is putting more and more distance between me and the mountains.

And yet, time passes no matter what you have to say about it, so-

Here's how I'm spending my days:

  • The awful old kitchen is now new one that two people can really stand in at once! After that, we tackled the wood-paneled den-esque room where Shawn works and drums. So, now we are tired and that will be our very convenient excuse that allows us to stretch the home renovation on further. We'll gut the bathrooms soon. (This is a blatant optimistic lie we tell everybody we know.)

  • I've learned that spending as much time as possible outdoors is what keeps me a reasonably pleasant person to be around. (Something about the fresh air and not spending every waking minute of my life in a house that I haven't finished renovating, I assume.) Even 5 or 10 minutes in the middle of an otherwise busy work day can work serious magic, so I make it a point to step outside for a little "sun break" every day.

  • I've gotten really into fitness as a... hobby? I've been going to a personal trainer to help me understand WTF I'm doing in the gym and to take awesome videos of me lifting weights for his Insta story. I hate being one of those people who says working out makes me just "feeeeel so much better," but it does and so I am.

  • I'm the President at MeetEdgar, where I'm happy to be creating an environment where work does not suck. I work alongside the most delightfully functional team of humans I've ever had the joy of working with, all remotely, in the comfort of our socks and sweatpants, with our cats and dogs snoozing in our laps. (ICYMI, Edgar is an automation tool designed to make it easier than ever for small businesses to share their best evergreen content on social media.)

  • I got a fancy new Kindle, which has encouraged me to start 16 books at a time, finishing almost none of them. This is a problem I'm actively working to fix. This year, I hope to read at least a whole book a month.

  • Still spending time with the dog and the dude whenever they let me.
