Growing up, I had a core group of friends.

David Newcomb from about 8-12. He was probably my best friend. Clayton who lived up the street. It's funny growing up how you make these friends, close friends for a few summers, and they just kinda fade away. Like, I wish I could remember the very last...

Today I'm thankful for Georgie, my cat. She can be a real pain in the ass some times, but she can also be a big sweetie. She's driving me nuts at the moment though.

I'm thankful for Lindsay, every day. She's such a beautiful person. I'm a lucky man and love her so much.

I'm thankful for my fami...

I had a lot of dreams last night that all follow a recurring theme.

Part one of the dream, and I...

I spent all day inside, working from home 9-5, then a nap, then lounging around some more. Around 7pm, I had major cabin fever and decided it was time to get out for a bike ride. So off I went. The bike ride was great up until I was headed down a hill. I should have seen the writing on the wall w...

Today I'm thankful for a lot. My apartment, wife, cat, plants. My sweet-ask desk setup which I love working at. My job, even though it sucks sometimes. My incredible family, each of whom I admire. My city which I have grown to love. My bikes. My body, my eyes, arms, legs. I have so fucking much t...

When I was growing up, we started remodeling our house from about seventh grade until ...

I haven't been writing in my journal too frequently lately.

Things have been great these last few months. I feel relaxed and happy. I'm pretty stoked about that.

Work was chill today. I like working next to Paul and Dan, both chill dudes. The first year at my company, I was basically on my own....

Thriving. That's a word a really like. I want to be "thriving".

The last month, I really feel li...

Yesterday, just after the mid-term election results were posted, Trump asked Jeff Sessions to resign. Sessions was the head dude ultimately in charge of the Mueller investigation. Session recused himself from oversight of that investigation two years ago, and Trump has lambasted him every since.

I have been sick for the last seven days, ever since I got back from my trip visiting SLO. I sat next to an obnoxious British couple and the wife was sick. I think that was what did it. It has been miserable.

Due to missing four days for the funeral and another day for being sick, I'm behind on ...

Today I'm thankful for a quiet night in with my wife. We made pumpkin/bourbon/maple cocktails. Da...

I'm making banana bread right now—it's in the oven and smelling great! I also have some dough in the mixer to make crackers, of all things.

I stopped coding an hour and a half ago and have been cooking every since. Having a ball. I really like cooking. I was thinking while I'm cooking what happi...

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. My ebike batteries are all charged up, and I'm about to head out on a 30-mile ride that loops south of Portland, over the Willamette River, and then back on the East side. 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.

What a weekend!

I had a realization lately that I've taken to heart: I get extremely restless, a...
