Writing

Let's try this again!

Published on April 01, 2018

Oh boy! It’s only been… about 4 months since I wrote something. Not a day goes by where I don’t think…

Gee, I really should write a blog or something. Anything! It’s been a while.

… and ended up not doing it. Even now, as I’m writing this very post. I’m contemplating deleting everything and saving it for another day. (I’m not though. Regardless of how badly this thing reads, I’m gonna publish it.). I don’t think it comes from a place of anger… or sadness… or even fear. I think it comes from a place of awkwardness with a hint of unfamiliarity.

Kind of like, when you’re in a social situation where you want to make conversation with strangers, but, you don’t know what to say! So, you just drink from your cup… Until eventually, you realize all the liquid is gone - so that last sip you just took was more of a pretend one. At this point, the only rational thing you can do is… go get some more drink! Or perhaps… iunno… just say something (for Pete’s sake). Or in my case… write something. (for Pete’s sake!).

So, hello internet! ✌️😊.
You haven’t heard from me in about 4 months! (Sorry!)

Here’s what I’ve been up to!

I recognize that I’ve failed pretty terribly at this, “I’m gonna write a blog post every week (or so)” thing. But, I haven’t given up. I’ll just try to fail less terribly the next time 😊.

P.S. This is me, (doing double thumbs up for some reason) at the CSS animation workshop!

P.P.S. I don’t drink, so in the above hypothetical situation that I’ve totes never been in before, I most likely would have had a cup of water… or if I was feeling adventurous… fizzy water.

What it means to be a Design Engineer

Recently, I had a catch-up chat with a product designer colleague from work (his name is Buzz and he is awesome). One of the things we talked about was the various things I did at Help Scout.
