  • redesign 2023-02-25

    I’ve redesigned from the ground up, eschewing the “digital garden” concept in favor of something a little more home-grown. The “cool stuff” from my monthly notes have been split out into their own section, and the more interesting notes have been moved to a chronological sequence of posts.

  • Don't forget to do 2022-12-30

    Maintaining a personal productivity system, streamlining your task management, working out a daily schedule… it all adds up! Remember that these meta-tasks are in service of a greater goal.

  • New WIP feeling 2022-09-12

    For music producers, new WIP feeling is the emotion associated with elevating a project file from a sketch to the start of a song — a new work in progress. At least, that’s what I call it in my head. I assume this feeling is more-or-less universal among us. Not everything you throw into the DAW works, and finding something that does work can feel a bit like hitting the bullseye on a moving target.

  • Never Tweet 2022-05-23

    Over the course of a decade, I allowed Twitter to become my primary means of socialization. The vast majority of my public writing manifested as tweets. When I finally decided I was unhappy with the status quo, I created this [[digital garden]] as an alternative outlet for my prose & declared that “I don’t have Twitter”. I’ve since shortened this declaration to “Never Tweet”, which is not only more actionable, but a more accurate characterization of my problems with the website.

  • Growing up 2022-05-23

    Legally, I’ve been an “adult” for over a decade. I file my taxes each year, respond to important emails, and own a vacuum machine and paper shredder. Even if it took some time to adjust, by the age of 24 I thought that I had finally reached the level of emotional maturity adulthood demanded of me. It felt like my aunts and uncles and grandparents were right – I will, as they say, figure it out as I get older.
