• Dailies 008: Eating Better to Avoid Crashing

    March 15, 2018

    THURSDAY. Another slump day, but I had an encouraging insight that maybe it’s not so much a lack of willpower by itself, but health issues exacerbated by my self-care routine when I am sick. (more…)

  • Dailies 004: Friday Pinkness

    March 9, 2018

    Happy Friday! This morning I flipped-around my routine, starting with the What’s Up Dave video instead of writing this blog post first. This way, I can link to the video in the blog post! I’ve decided to just use the morning video to get my head together and do a little light planning.

I’m not much of an illustrator, but I find making decorative boxes serves most of my needs.

    Pink overload! In the video I show some “fresh ramen” that I tried out, the new nail color + Lamy Al Star pen with the vibrant pink ink. I may have gone a little overboard on the color experimentation :-)

    That’s it for today’s update. I’m still figuring out what daily blogging will mean again. Back on Monday.
