I have meant to put together a post on what media I consume daily. It has changed a lot lately, so might as well now so I can compare later.

2017 Q2 Review

#659 / / Nat Welch

Sigh. The second quarter of 2017 is over. The year is halfway done. 2016 flew by at the speed of sound, so I didn’t get consistent reviews written, but this year, I’m trying to get back on the horse. More writing at a more steady pace!

I’ve been consistently failing to write these #happy posts. My excuses are long and varied, but none of them are good. Nor did their outcome compensate for the happiness these posts bring me. I’m starting a timer today while writing this. Just to prove to myself how long these take to write. So then, maybe I’ll get back to my weekly schedule.

A late night #happy post. I spent the weekend rearranging and organizing the apartment with @mel_cantrell. It’s slowly starting to feel like home. But let’s talk about things I consumed, not things I did!

So… it’s been five weeks since I last wrote one of these… my shame is great. I’ve been sick, and I also was traveling for a bit, so I guess that’s a valid excuse? Not really… but #shrugs.

Words to use instead of "insane"

#653 / / Nat Welch

I’ve been trying to get better at not using the words insane or crazy in every day dialog. For a while I tried out “bananas” as a replacement, as suggested by @mel_cantrell. But the more I tried it out, I felt like it came off as a code word for crazy.

So, I’m home sick with the flu (or something that looks like it at least…), and even with that, I still can’t get a #happy post out on time. But that being said, here’s a week’s worth of links that I enjoyed.

My Twitter Replacement

#646 / / Nat Welch

Ok, I’m trying something. I’ve mentioned that I’m not reinstalling Twitter on my phone. So I’ve built a little Heroku App that emails you tweets from people you don’t want to miss a tweet from. It runs once a day, and returns just plain text tweets with as little formatting as possible.

What's making me happy 2017-01-22

#638 / / Nat Welch

I’m in kind of a funk. A weird existential funk, thinking about jobs, the communities I’m apart of, what I want to accomplish with my life, etc. Interestingly enough, creating these #happy posts is a really easy way for me to get my mind off of things. My blog’s “new post” UI just provides me with a list of page titles (hence why I complain at people when they don’t have unique per page title tags). So I just slowly read through subject lines trying to remember what this post was I read sometime in the last ten days.
