Where to start? There has been 4 months since my last post on my blog here. A lot has changed since that last post. First off I am now located in Boston Massachusetts. (Hopefully I spelled that correctly, I've had really bad luck with spelling it right on the first time). I am working at a company called Wayfair (and probably should say that I don't speak for the company at all).

I have been working as a web developer crushing CSS and HTML bugs, as well as shipping several large new features for Wayfair and it's affiliated brands. While doing this work I have begun to hate web development work, at least work for a large company and brand (I will probably write another post about these feelings. Here is a link to that post.)

Over the past few months I have been working on several projects, one for a small startup which will launch soon, another that is coming up for another startup, some small personal projects and mostly searching for work. I haven't been as active as I would have liked with my personal projects, so now I have been focusing on side projects in the evenings and on the weekends.

I have also been working on revising my diet, I bought Coffiest a week or two ago and have been addicted to it since the second one 😄. After I began to like that I decided to pull the trigger and bought some "Space Food". This stuff is really odd at first but once you get used to it its actually quite interesting. I have begun to replace my lunches at work with simply a cup of powder and some water. Unfortunately I still have a ton of real food in my fridge that I need to go through first before completely switching over.

The only things I really only need to change are my productivity habits/systems and also starting to get some bodyweight fitness activities into my daily schedules.

I plan on writing a lot more as I have several blog ideas built up over the months that I wasn't writing, so stay tuned for more!
