I love chocolate, animation and modding my phone. I dislike Jim Carrey, weddings and Truck Nutz. I started as a video editor and motion graphics artist and now I find myself podcasting and writing.

My last post reminded me why I stopped using WordPress. Every single plugin has some stat tracker from the developer, slowing your site down and possibly invading the privacy of visitors.

NUMBERS NUMBERS NUMBERS!
I want those page hits. I want those views. I want those likes. I want those app/plugin/music/podcast downloads.
Statistics may be useful, but they don't determine your personal value.

I drove Coco to the off leash park to celebrate finishing some work and now we're waiting for the AMA because we have a flat tire. 😑😣

I got to respect places that shake up the hiring place to find a good fit rather than the broken application/resume process. I'm stressed about this application video and proposal I'm working on, but I am creating something and that feels good. I'm not dropping my resume on a pile hoping I worded things to their liking. I'm performing a service. If this isn't what they want, fair enough.

You know, I didn't take a single picture yesterday, out with friends? I wanted to thank them for getting me out so I thought, "I should post a thank you pic on instagram/FB." However, how great is it that I was able to enjoy myself to the point of not taking my phone out? That's pretty Rad.

Uh...
Hey creative friend-os, image, video, audio editors and mixers,
THIS.
IS.
RAD.

Fun watching live from Portland and seeing all the people who I've interacted with or read about as I try to make my site more indieweb friendly.

"A new approach couldn’t come at a better time for a field that is 'broken,' as Tom Insel, head of the National Institute of Mental Health until 2015, told me bluntly. Rates of depression (now the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the W.H.O.) and suicide are climbing; addictive behavior is rampant. Little has changed, meanwhile, in psychopharmacology since the introduction of SSRI antidepressants in the late 1980s." https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/05/15/magazine/health-issue-my-adventures-with-hallucinogenic-drugs-medicine.html
