End-of-the-Month Highlights Day

New photos have been added to the Life, 2015 album. Have you noticed that my images are much bigger than they used to be? Storage is cheap in the cloud! THIS IS THE FUTURE.

  • Events
    • Had the first barbeque of the year on 5/2, where Evil Mike smashed a child's pinata.

    • Hiked the White Oak Canyon - Cedar Run circuit with Returned Mike and Annie, and stayed once again at Hopkins Ordinary B&B on 5/9.

    • Met Kathy for adult drinks on 5/21.

    • Went to Old Ox Brewery on 5/22 and saw a serial killer.

    • Hiked at Harper's Ferry and ate local farm foods at DISH on 5/23.

    • Planning to see my sister and her kids, in town from Rhode Island, tomorrow, on 5/30.

  • Projects
    • Inspired, developed, and taught an after-work curriculum designed to get engineers two separate Amazon Web Services certifications throughout the month.

    • Finished a proposal about time series algorithms that I partly understood, and started yet another proposal about clouds that won't be done for the next month or so.

    • Got HOA approval to replace the decaying shed in my backyard, and began researching options for a screen porch on our deck.

  • Consumerism
    • Enjoyed watching seasons of Scrotal Recall, The Shield, and Game of Thrones.

    • Started playing Pillars of Eternity, but it just made me want to play Skyrim instead. Also bought Witcher 3, but I realize its potential to become addicting and have delayed diving in until I have more time to spare.

    • Enjoyed new music by Breakestra, and looking forward to multiple new albums coming out in June.

May's Final Grade: B+, a healthy mix of work, play, and extracurriculars with decent weather, decent cats, and a decent wife.
