I had thought I was being more perceptive in my every day life. Until I came back from vacation and reemerged from behind my camera lens.


DIY aka "Learning Opportunity"

My over-confident and frugal desire to just "figure it out" mixed with most projects only happening once means everything is full of "chances to learn". Or disasters...


"I found the perfect job!"

Do you go to school then straight to your job for the next 20+ years? For most people, that's the goal. You spend the money, you find a job, you work till your 70. I need change. I need challenge. I need creativity. 



All my life I've had a clear answer to 'What I want to be when I grow up?' However, it seems to change every 2-3 years.


Constant Marketing

Lesson learned: I listen to too many podcasts on too many different topics inspiring me to do too many different things. Not that I'll change.


Science translated to Web Dev

I'm partly trying to justify thousands of dollars of debt only to switch tracks a few years out of my Master's degree. As well as, point out transferable skills that apply no matter the situation.


Invisible progress and learning

While I haven't finished the new homepage, I have been making progress with web development courses. I love the opportunity the internet can give for those us of with the desire to learn!

I've painted enough to learn some things, but don't do it all the time. Or nearly enough to become great at it. I also have pastels, charcoals, and pens to practice various forms of sketching. And I've googled so many camera tutorials. I'm alright at photography, mostly I just auto-shoot everything. Then hope I can photoshop any mistakes. Though this picture was definitely done on a phone, though the cat tree was enough of a project I learned how to use several saws and other tools.  

This is how I've always lived. But how do you market that? I just finished Robert Herjavec's book "You Don't Have to Be a Shark: Creating Your Own Success". And while I'm not actively looking for a new job, it reminds me of my struggle to sell myself in the past. I can't sell myself as a specialist by any means, but I'm willing to figure anything out. I'm a problem solver. But how do you sell "I don't know what you need yet, but I'll figure it out" or even "I partly know 5 different things that you do and can continue to learn while I work". 

Though mentally, it can be exhausting juggling so many things in my head and today I laid down on the floor of my office and passed out for an hour. On the hard, but carpeted,
