Thanks! I'll keep that in mind
As for my own passions, I really enjoy working out, writing, and working on nerdy little side projects. I
I spend an hour or so working out every day. My journey with fitness and weight loss has been a long one. In the past few years I dropped from 240 lbs to 165 lbs (108 kg - 74 kg for our metric friends) without stepping foot in the gym. I take some medication for generalized anxiety and high blood pressure that helped a ton with the weight loss, but when I made some changes to those medications I rose steadily back up to about 210 lbs, despite working out four or five times a week. I've managed to fix some of the diet and appetite issues that caused the gain, and I'm back down to 201 lbs. I have a trip to Hawaii coming up in May of next year, and I'm hoping I can be back at 165 by the time we head back that direction.
In the writing world, I'm currently working on two different non-fiction projects. One is a book about some of the less-prominent types of UX specialties out there, and the considerations that they might require. The other is a slightly-less-than-complete history of sports in Denver. Both projects are still in the research stage, but they're fun to work through. I'm excited to get writing on them soon!
My latest nerdy little side project is working on a Raspberry Pi magic mirror. The Pi is programmed, now I just need the frame and 1-way mirror. I also need a place to hang it, but that's another story entirely. It may end up just hanging in my cube, and I'd be okay with that.
