Taking notes while tinkering with:
My newborn son arrived 3 weeks ago, weighing in at a whopping 9.4 lbs. My poor wife battled out 30 hours of labor, and finally the doctors insisted that she have a C-section. Now we’re learning as we go and trying to keep our heads above water.
Surprisingly, I have been able to get coding sprints in and accomplish things here and there. Sleep has been scarce, however.
At this point, I have a strong desire to be both of two things:
- A good father and husband
- A hacker who can productively make cool things
Step 1 for me will be to find the time.
Although there hasn’t been any updates to this blog, I actually have been hacking away and learning some new tools which I’m very excited about. My wife has been pregnant for the last 9 months, and I’ve had to prioritize baby preparations above my blog updates. Now that most of my preparations are in place, I can finally take a breath and look at this blog again while we wait. My baby boy can come any day now (anyone have stories of hacking in between newborn raising?).
I’ve finally started a new blog at 808.ninja.
It’s bare at the moment, but hopefully my newly chosen blogging platform will allow me to be more efficient while writing posts. I have big plans for how I’m going to organize all of the varying content.
