Hello friends! I seem to be wearing my internet invisibility cloak as of late. It happens when the to-do list gets longer. But here I am, taking a break for a cup of genmaicha and a blog post, and mulling over the following dilemmas:
+ Eva's Halloween costume: a swashbuckling pirate as per our original plan, or this?
+ Online courses: yay or nay? One of the unexpected byproducts of starting my own internet space is that I've become interested in the technical side of things. Coding, typography, digital design -- I never considered any of these things very relevant to my life until I started a blog. Now, in a bizarre twist of events, I find myself wanting to learn these things. Truth be told, part of me feels pretty unrealistic and defeatist about making this happen, and is questioning whether this is a productive use of time. But another part of me says, just try it. Earlier this month, for reasons unrelated to this blog, I completed an online course in Scratch (think programming for kids), and it was surprisingly fun. So now I've been browsing Skillshare, Lynda, and TutsPlus for courses. Has anyone used these sites?
+ I started reading Jonathan Safran Foer's Eating Animals, and I'm strongly considering re-adopting a vegetarian diet. I can already hear the reactions I'll get from my meat-eating family members! Well, I'll keep reading and keep you posted.
If you're still reading this ramble, insert praise hands emoji here. Happy Friday!
