End-of-the-Month Highlights Day

A few new photos have been added to the Life, 2015 album, but the large majority of activity was in the new Europe album.

  • Events
    • Had our parents over for dinner and post-Europe slides on S 8/8.

    • Took a rock-climbing class on S 8/9 and learned how to belay.

    • Met Amanda and Frank for dinner on Lake Anne on F 8/14.

    • Played Dungeons and Dragons with the Ahlbins on S 8/15.

    • Went rock-climbing again on S 8/16.

    • Went to the Smiths for Game Night on S 8/21.

    • Rebecca went to Ocean City for a B(e)achelorette Weekend on F 8/28.

  • Projects
    • Rearranged the living room.

    • Patched the holes in the foundation of my relationships house, and repaired some glue seams in our carpets.

    • Started experimenting with various game development programming libraries.

  • Consumerism
    • Enjoyed seasons of Newsroom, Orphan Black, and Silicon Valley (reviews on Thursday), and the movie, Ex Machina. Also started watching Narcos and am really digging it.

    • Played no new games this month, but still have Hearthstone on auto-pilot.

    • Got a new queen-sized bed for the harem, and a new camera (Canon ELPH 340 HS) to replace the one I inevitably dropped that no longer focuses correctly.

August's Final Grade: B+, a good month of downtime after Europe to regenerate before "back-to-school" season at work.
