Still have a lingering cold. Couch surfing trying to get better.
I've graduated to a stronger cold medicine.
Work, workout, dinner, Files and sleepy couch Lola again.
I've moved a humidifier into the mix now..
Punchbowl social has a party and contest every time they retire a punch bowl. Ashley wrote a haiku and won the party this time! Free punchbowl, bowling and food! Got to practice up on our bowling skills.
My armoire closet.
I ordered a keyboard a mechanical keyboard on massdrop, and it finally came! The worst part of Massdrop is the waiting period for group buys.
Coming home for lunch and Clifton is shut down, Ashley sent me this video. The telephone pole was going to fall in the road. The biggest news in Lakewood.
Ashley and I are going to Amsterdam, Ireland and Northern Ireland! Today we're going to fly yinto Amsterdam for a few hours and explore around the city. Flying out of Detroit. This is going to be a long day.
We've made it to Amsterdam! Ashley and I put our baggage in a storage locker and started walking around the city. We got breakfast and stumbled upon a canal tour. Need to come back. Heading to Dublin to meet Ashley's family.
Visited Saint Johns Castle, drank Guinness at 3 different pubs and Ashley Bought me my first Aero bar. Started our trip towards The Cliffs and The Wild Atlantic Way.
Visited the Cliffs of Moher & Wild Atlantic Way today, one of the coolest places I've ever been. You can walk along the cliffs and see everything from multiple angles. Plenty of scenic overlooks. Ashley's family has a van that fits all 7 of us - fun piling in and out of the van family road trip-style.
My great great grandmother was from Westport, got to stop and walk around there and get lunch today. Was a pretty cool experience! Staying with Ashley's Aunt in Sligo and they took us to their favorite pub - where I got to pour my own pint of Guinness!
Walked around the Streedagh beach in Sligo, the Glencar waterfall and the Bawn Castle in Mullaghmore.
Visited The Dark Hedges on our way to Northern Ireland today! A Game Of Thrones location was pretty cool to see. Also went to Giants Causeway which was a fun to walk around and explore. Took a tour the Bush Mills Distillery and bout a bottle of 12 year they only sell at the distillery. Can't wait to get home and crack it open.
Ashley and I are branching away from the family and spending some time together in Dublin for St. Patricks day. On our way to a tour of the Guinness brewery in Dublin.
St. Patricks day in Dublin! The parade was fun with plenty of people, bands and costumes. We left Dublin after the parade and headed back to Amsterdam where we smoked cigars and drank whisky by the canals. Best St. Patricks day.
Woke up and had to scramble to the train to make our flight on time. We got to the gate as the plane began to board. The plane had outlets in the seats so I was able to work on Second of the Day all the way home.
As fun as the vacation was, it feels good to be home in my own bed. The 8 hour plane ride was my longest one yet.
When I was away, my keyboard for work came! My brown switch Das Keyboard with cherry profile dolche keycaps from eBay. Feels good to not have to bring my keyboard between work and home everyday.
Editing Second of the Day video for 2016 and watching the newly released Dave Chappelle stand up.
Lola thinks she's a lap dog when you try to take a nap on the couch.
Working on the precision environmental website at Sprokets.
Based on Lola's successful video on YouTube, I decided to see if I could start an Instagram account - I originally wanted to start a website but I figured before I put any money into a new project, I can make an Instagram account for free and post some things on there to see what people respond to.
Kenzies birthday - she discovers a hidden treasure that Shannon made her cake around.
Helped my dad get the boat out of storage, have some work to do before we put her in the water.
My newest book to read before bed. It's an interesting look at the intricate details of war.
I've wanted to make a blog for myself for a while - a site separate from my design portfolio, just to post articles every now and again. I've sketched out the overview of the blog, now for the visual design.
I've learned that people don't really respond to broad category of pets the way they do to a specific pet. So I've made a new instagram specifically for dogs. We'll see how this works out.
Walking to work, the sky looked pretty cool. That's all.
Working on what a blog entry looks like in photoshop. I have Sketch, but I find I can work faster in photoshop on just a single template view.
