  • How I Spent My 2020

    How I Spent My 2020

    First, let me assure you that I am alive and well. I’ve been living happily (uh, well….) these past 10 days in the year 2021. Yes, we made it. Well, some of us. 2020 was supposed to be one of those glorious benchmark years. Look how far we’ve come! Look at the advances we’ve made […]

  • Anti-Virus, Week 9 – Routine Maintenance

    Anti-Virus, Week 9 – Routine Maintenance

    It only took nine weeks of quarantine, but I think I finally managed to settle into a morning routine. I’m a routine kind of guy. I get more done more consistently if I do it the same way every morning. The only problem is that I notoriously and spectacularly fall out of routine on a […]

  • Anti-Virus, Weeks 6-8ish – Puking into the Dilithium Chamber

    Anti-Virus, Weeks 6-8ish – Puking into the Dilithium Chamber

    In reviewing my previous two blogs, I came to the conclusion that they stink. No, it’s not because of the quality of the writing. Although, that wasn’t very good, either. But dang, it’s just a blog, not a TMZ article. Give me a break. Truthfully, they were just too negative. (Not to mention they were […]

  • Anti-Virus, Weeks 3-4

    Anti-Virus, Weeks 3-4

    Week 3 can be summed up as, more or less, a duplicate of Week 2. In spite of what was happening in the world around me, I felt good about the use of my time and stayed positive and productive. I was Burgess Meredith in “Time Enough at Last” right before his glasses break. Week […]

    Anti-Virus, Week 2

    Well, I guess I’ve adapted to this way of life…as much as one might be able. While COVID-19 is never fully out of my mind, I must admit that there have been a few times over the past week where I kind of forgot about it. Not in the sense that I don’t care, that […]

  • Hard Reset

    Hard Reset

    I almost posted a very different blog about my 2020 plans and expectations, but I had something of a revelation today concerning my approach to creativity: It’s not working. It made the original blog mostly irrelevant, but there are a couple of key points that will sneak their way into this one, too. My wife […]

    Brian Still Hasn’t Beat Pools of Darkness, Part Five – Whoops! Brian Beat Pools of Darkness!

    [Hey, this entry is part of a series. Read all about my Pools of Darkness experience here.] WELP I beat Pools of Darkness. But what happened to the blog series? Well, the short version is that, and I’m a little embarrassed to say, I got so into the game that I couldn’t keep up with […]
