I just found out a colleague I've worked with that is insanely talented but has 1/3 of the experience I have has been promoted to a Senior role while I'm still at mid-level. I felt a tinge of envy, then "fuck it, who cares." Everyone, including me, is going at their own pace. I don't want to be a...

I had a dream last night. A long one. It was night. Lindsay, a few friends, and I were exploring through some fields and orchards out in the country. We found this huge mill. I looked closely and could see that it produced wood dowels. There was a 40' tower with dowels spilling out from underneat...

Saturday morning and off to a great start.

I have a lot of other stuff to do today, but I love starting my weekends off with ...

Logan and I used to dig through Pop's garage and make little devices and ninja-tools with all of his electrical equipment.

Logan and I used to go surfing. We'd listen to Circa Survive, grab Taco De Mexico after a long session and just chill. Those days were pretty simple.

Dream journal.

I had a dream last night where I was in some kind of airport or air base. I was watching this plane zip around in the sky, when, all of the sudden, it comes barreling toward us in the parking lot. It's starts doing some flips right about us. The air blows another plan through the ...

Sunday.

I got up the morning feeling great. Cleaned the apartment, went grocery shopping, and was generally feeling super chill and relaxed. Good vibes all around. There's a lady cashier at Fred Meyer who I've always kinda thought of as unfriendly. Well, today we clicked big time. We were laughi...

I had insomnia growing up. I would routinely wake my mom up at 3am, anxious and fretful. Mom would patiently reassure and comfort me. Always. Just having her there was so nice. My mom is such an incredible person. I am very fortunate to have her as a mom.

A trip down memory lane:

Growing up, there was this reservoir in the Salinas river. In the middle of Summer, Lo and I would head down there and sometimes swim. I remember some other kids had set up a BMX ramp on the edge of it.

That same river was home to millions of frogs one Summer. I swear i...
