I’m car camping for the summer and it is sparking so much joy! I love waking up to the sounds of a creek and falling asleep looking up at the stars.

Are there any cool developer conferences coming up? :) I would potentially be down to conference with some esteemed colleagues.

Some good stuff from the farmer's market last night. Currently eating these carrots with hummus & it is poppin *chef's kiss*

Cooper having a cute little drink. Look at him. So sweet. So precious.

My sweet sister who is a talented full stack web developer is looking for work! Hire her! She'll help your team build cool things. ✨

Hello again! I exist! :D

Acclimatizing to being on the internet again after taking June off of work to be very much offline and explore nature with my sister.

We saw so many beautiful things, and my heart is full! My world got very small during the pandemic and this trip really helped restore my sense of balance and perspective.. I now feel capable and strong, but also extremely humbled and small (in a good way). So grateful to be here with all of you. <3

some moments in washington.
(still offline for this month.)

I'm <10 minutes away from being offline for the month of June on sabbatical. Looking forward to unplugging, reconnecting with nature, and spending some much needed quality time with my sister.

As much as I enjoy the steady stream of updates and pet photos, I am looking forward to experiencing a month without an internet connection or cellphone service and just *walking*

<3 see you soon, much love.

I'm usually never this busy, but it has been good for me. 😴❤️

I did some super fast drawings in-between moving this weekend for the comic I want to make about my recent 10-day stay at a vipassana meditation center.

(About to leave for a month-long hiking/camping trip, so the rest will have to wait.)

I'm hosting the next zine party on June 14th. RSVP to hello@zine.party

Less than a week until our ~300 mile hike! yeehaw 🥾🌲⛰️

heartbroken, *angry*. IGNITED for action. . . but I have to sit and do my little job.

are folks using a service to x-post between mastodon and the birdsite? would love a recommendation, apologies for ...I am tired :blobfoxcomfysleepy:

I am back from the northwest vipassana meditation center!

I am not even sure how to articulate what a deeply profound and **humbling** experience this was for me...

I have learnt an incredible skill to process emotions and experiences. I feel fundamentally changed as a person. (going to try and make a comic to better explain before I leave to hike later this month)

Would highly recommend for everyone. If you are curious, you can find course schedules on www.dhamma.org

As of tomorrow, I will be offline for 10 days to participate at a silent meditation center. ttyl! 🤐

I think I’ll be forever chasing the high of the moment when ✨it finally works✨

Programming is such an emotional roller coaster...

Some days, I can’t imagine doing anything else. Merrily solving problems, feeling productive with a sense of purpose.

Other days, like today, I wonder how there was ever a time I felt competent. Running into pitfall after pitfall, slowly crawling forward. =_=;
