Getting Into the Best Shape of My Life

While the fact I’ve never been fit or athletic has its drawbacks, it makes getting into the best shape of my life a pretty low bar. Summer 2017 is the golden era I currently hold up as my peak. I had graduated college and moved to a new city for a job. Without homework assignmentsContinue reading “Getting Into the Best Shape of My Life”

Making an Intricate 3D Paper Snowflake

For this week’s blog post, I made a 3D snowflake more intricate than any I’d made before. When I’ve made 3D snowflakes in the past, I made ones with far fewer connecting rungs, about 3-5. Below is baby one with just 3 rungs, with bonus sheet music. The one I made this week had 15Continue reading “Making an Intricate 3D Paper Snowflake”

“Lightning in a Bottle” is now on Youtube

Hello! Here is a Youtube video for my song, “Lightning in a Bottle.” I was thinking of putting it up on Youtube a while ago.

This week, I had several ideas in mind for a potential project. One path would have been to write a song, this time in theContinue reading “Quote-Pictures: Variations on Regret”

“The Tyranny of Expectations” – new song

This song is about navigating expectations from society and yourself. The lyrics are below, as is a beautiful cover by my sister: Trying, failing, falling behindTreading water and wasting timeI’m scared, I’m scared, I’m terrifiedI’ve been given so much and I’ve let it die Shouldn’t I have accomplished more?In what domain I’m not quite sureI’mContinue reading ““The Tyranny of Expectations” – new song”

Song to learn U.S. states and capitals (of the Northeast!)

This is a song I worked on a few months ago. I wanted the song to be a memory/educational aid to help kids learn all 50 states and capitals. Turns out that 50 is a large number and makes a song quite unwieldy, so I cut it down to just the Northeast, as defined byContinue reading “Song to learn U.S. states and capitals (of the Northeast!)”

Blackout Poetry

I made a few blackout poems today. I made some in college for a creative writing assignment, and back then I used an email from the college president, printing it out and blocking out all the extraneous words with a thick sharpie. For these poems, I used two copies of a random work email IContinue reading “Blackout Poetry”
