Taking the day off from work to (hopefully) finish my mass communications history paper. Current soundtrack: Motown.
Ryan had a blast at soccer tonight and scored his first goal. (Also awesome about 7-year-old soccer… hugs for parents between quarters.)
7-year-old: “Riverdance. That’s where I get all my sweet moves.”
Our 11-year-old is now almost as tall as her 14-year-old sister. (And big sister isn’t exactly short.)
I now have my entire Facebook post history in an Excel spreadsheet. The first step in trying to build a physical book with all my family stories from the last 11 years.
I took today off. So of course I’m sitting in a coffee shop researching the history of the Linotype.
Just submitted an academic paper to a conference for the first time. I’m proud of how it turned out, even if I was required to use Times New Roman. (This whole designer-to-academic transition creates some really odd personal issues.)
Today was a great day to be a geek… a new Avengers: Endgame trailer and an awesome Star Trek: Discovery.
Captain Marvel was amazing. I think this was the first superhero movie my 11-year-old daughter really enjoyed.
Just came across a tutorial for using Python for sentiment analysis on the Programming Historian site... add to that the use of Python in type design and data visualization. It really seems like the language I need to learn.
My seven-year-old: “This cereal is two of my favorite things… fruit and pebbles.”
My professor banned use of the word “interesting” today. Now I can’t stop saying it.
One thing I love about Star Trek Discovery is how unexpected it can be. 🖖
Tonight's music selection: REM. I haven't listened to classic REM in a long time. Forgot how much I like the old stuff.
My seven-year-old son excels at the guilt trip. I’d be impressive if it didn’t make feel like crap.
Turns out the green tea I bought and thought was caffeine free… not caffeine free. Which might explain the whole I’m-wide-awake-at-4:30-am thing. But at least I’ve gotten some work done on one of my class assignments.
My new Saturday night ritual is studying in Starbucks.
My daughter and I started an extended license plate game this summer. Trying to find all 50 states. I thought Hawaii and Alaska would be hard, but actually, we’ve seen several of each. The one we are still missing: South Dakota.
