Spring 2022

This is just a stream of thought list of where I'm at in my life outside of programming.

Family

I'm about to be a father for the first time. My daughter is due in June. There are a million things I need to do still, but I'm feeling mostly ready. We still do not have a name, but we have a list of possible names. Installing the car seat was easy. I should get it checked though just to be sure I did it correctly.

Media

I was watching Picard, and now I'm watching Strange New Worlds. Discovery lost me with the fungus. I want to watch all the new trek, but have limited time, and have to choose. Picard got me with nostalgia, and I loved most of it. Strange New Worlds seems like it should be mostly episodic, which I prefer and I'm loving the retro feel of everything. I'm only one episode in though.

Listening to SoundCloud. One of My Morning Jacket's newer album on repeat mostly. I deleted Spotify, so I'm just trying to discover new stuff any way I can.

As far as reading goes when I'm not reading a baby book, I'm trying to get through the newish The Last King of Osten Ard trilogy by Tad Williams, but embarrassingly haven't picked it up in months. It's good, but I just am terrible at reading these days for various reasons.

More to come

That's it for now. I want to write one of these every season. There is far too much that has happened in my life without writing about it at all, and I want to change that.
