new glasses arrived along with my first proper mechanical keyboard. as far as my hacker wizard build goes, i believe i'm approaching my final form.

i really like that i was able to aesthetically highlight my vim bindings. feels me.

spent my evening updating the design of both the content and the aesthetic of my documentation for tag

thelanding.page/tag/

pre-emptive: i did it today!

disappointment: i probably won't keep doing it. i've got palmar hyperhidrosis. that's doctor slang for my hands get sweaty.

I think i shook hands with more people today than any single day of my life and for someone with palmar hyperhidrosis, it is single-handedly the most uncomfortable situation to regularly find oneself in.

Went for a walk to grab Boba. Ran into iambearsun.com on the way home!!!

For context, he started walking from Los Angeles, California, USA to San Francisco, California, USA eleven days ago.

Pretty wild he was walking past my neighborhood at the right time to snap this.

I walked with him for a couple blocks, people thought I was his guide so I was taking pictures for them lol

If you've got questions, I might be able to answer some, since I basically interogated him as we walked ๐Ÿ˜…

Okay, so results from the test:

I beat the game in under three hours as advertised. That included my struggles at the beginning since I don't know how to use Backblaze. We ended up just not using it-- thanks to the chat for help!

This was about 4-6 consistent viewers on a $5 Digital Ocean droplet running sitejs.org with .

Self Portrait of myself.

Unlike most self portraits, I am flashing two peace signs.

This was taken today on a Fujifilm Finepix JX on a tripod with a 10 second timer, double exposure. one with flash and one without.

This is the version with flash, so my skin is a little over exposed. So like, hella white. My blue eyes pop against the contrast.

My smirk covers my teeth, my biggest insecurity.

I'm wearing a snapback hat backwards, my hair flowing out from underneath.

My 80s style wristwatch peeks out from under the left sleeve of a sweatshirt of Atari's Missle Command arcade game.

A table is behind me, with a bubble maker and bubbles on top with a cooler below it.

I'm squatting for no other reason than not being quite sure where the frame began and ended.

The photo was taken to test lighting conditions for a family photo.

One and done, but I really like my style. I wear the watch every day. I regularly wear the sweatshirt...

so, both my watch and my camera believe today is February 29th.

i'm a time traveler now. who says it isn't and who says i'm not?

current vibe

fresh off my turn of last decade point and shoot.

Gun Violence 

I had a nightmare last night.

I was in a large house with a group of friends. Victoria and I were in the master bedroom, I was texting others in the house.

I heard gunshots, one friend never responded. The other said he was hiding under the bed in his room.

I quietly, quickly, and calmly told Victoria we needed to get into the closet. While we were in there, she turned on the light and asked what was happening.

The door opened, gun in my face. I can vividly picture the face of the man holding it-- something I've never had in a dream before. His brow was furrowed and was wearing a hat similar to the one attached.

He calmly told us to leave the closet and to lay down on the bed.

As I was walking behind him, he turned and I jumped him. He spun around, the gun pointing at me and I woke up.

Ephemeral's choices:

A community that offers a safe space for people to share their personal lives online (again). Social media doesn't have to be about only showing the best of you, all the time -- finding support and community for your struggles, small and big, is a cause worth pursuing.
