What I’m up to…

There’s a lot coming up in my life in the next couple of weeks. Here’s a sampling of what I’ve been doing these past weeks and months.

  • Travel: I’ve been globetrotting quite heavily since I left Olin. I’ve visited family and friends in Lima, as well as went on a 3-day cruise in the Bahamas. I think I must have spent upwards of a third of my time since graduating somewhere other than home. A lot of moving around without really stopping� is fun but also very exhausting!
  • Projects: My productive time nowadays is spent working on one of several websites I’m either running or developing. I’m teaching myself Rails and working on two “secret” projects that will be launching sometime in the next couple of weeks. In terms of what they actually do they’re kind of simple and straight foward, but they’ll form part of a portfolio of sites that I am building.
  • Fun: The thing I am having lots of fun with right now is a little thing I am doing called Million Linden Prim. It’s a very familiar idea, but it’s really helped me enjoy Second Life a little bit more and provides a focus for making cool things in the game.

I’m really looking foward to my upcoming St.Louis trip. I’ve made it an unofficial deadline for the two unnamed projects above, so it really helps keep me motivated and productive throughout. It’s only going to be a couple of weeks, but I’m hoping to make a few important connections while I’m in town so that I can start to prepare for a longer stay.
