Making Adjustments

I want to live healthier and exercise every day. The reality is that I don’t, and with my life I don’t give it nearly enough time and importance as it should have.

A while ago, I wanted to keep Double Cow going, but the reality for that is I’m not running it as actively as I’d ideally want to because I can’t make the time while working at my parent’s restaurant. It had to be stopped.

I traded off finding remote design-related jobs as a recent grad so that I could spend more time with my family.

Things don’t always go our way, so we make adjustments.

These days I’m opting for a 5-10 minute exercise period instead of an hour long one.

I’m using social media as my creative outlet on @greatfountain and @habitfactory.space instead of making things.

Best of all, the adjusted things worked out. It’s not ideal, as few things are, but it’s working for me and that’s what matters.


Giving Thanks in 2020

Every year there’s an insurmountable number of things to be thankful for.

The people I’ve gotten to know over the years who make everything much more palatable and interesting, from learning to passion projects, and strangers to friends.

The home I live in that brings security, safety, and comfort.

The friends and family who give acceptance and good times.

And to everything in between: the hot cups of tea, the sunlight, and the blanket I go to bed with.

I know there are a lot of things to be worried over or concerned about, especially now in our current pandemic state, but I don’t want that to overshadow everything else good that’s happening.

I’m taking this time to give thanks to everyone who’s been a part of this tremendous time. Whether if it’s just been an Instagram DM, meeting in person, or if we’ve crossed paths and exchanged a smile, I appreciate you.

Happy Thanksgiving :) 


What Kind of Day is it Today?

Is it self doubt season, or is it all in our heads?

Is it just me, or is it everybody else too?

Our own off-day might be someone else’s good day, so we can’t go off on the assumption that our reality is everyone else’s too.

Feelings can be shared, but they’re mostly our own.

Doubts, insecurities, fears are all our own too. Perceive reality with care.
