It’s been a long time since I featured a post on the Puppyhood tag. A long time. Like…over a year, apparently. But I wanted to take a moment for anyone who really enjoyed keeping up with that content or is in general just sort of curious as to how my fur son has been doing. (more…)
It may come as no surprise that I am rather long-winded. If you’ve ever read a sentence I’ve written or listened to me speak, then you know that I choose my words carefully, but tend toward using 100 words when what I’m saying requires four.

Programming has been coming along well, but there’s something oddly mechanical about learning to code. Algorithms, systems, scripts—even the front end side—allows for so much creativity, but the learning of it can be a bit of a monotonous task at times.
So, I decided to revisit the well. (more…)
