I finally published a Now page over the weekend. It feels nice to have something public declaring my current focus, as well as somewhere to record the books I’m currently reading. I have found that I start too many books without finishing because I forget I’m reading them.

How exciting! Congrats to the U.S. women! ⚽️ πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

I’m feeling lucky I work for a great company and could bring my team to San Jose for WWDC week. Looking forward to enjoying Alt Conf, Layers, and meeting up with people. I’ll be posting sketchnotes at @sketchnotable if you want to follow along.

Excited to be flying out for WWDC. Looking forward to spending the week with my team and meeting up with a few friends I rarely get to see.

πŸ“– 🎧 No Happy Endings: A Memoir

By Nora McInerny

Tried my hand at stand-up comedy for the first time today as part of my OCD treatment. The results were not nearly as terrible as I feared.

πŸ“– 🎧 It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying Is Cool Too)

πŸ“ Humans

Glitter and sparkle,
Spin and shine,
Throw rainbows on the wall.

Ridges and divots,
Towers and gashes
Comprise identifiable topography.

Infinitely unique,
Utterly alike,
Common in our individuality.

πŸ“ Ordinary

Awash in a sea of special souls,
Kicking and fighting to stay afloat.
Wishing to be noticed,
Hoping to stay hidden.

Lifted up on to the shore,
Left alone to contemplate:
All my quirks and gifts and flaws
Make me just like everybody else.
