What I’m working on – Nothing new in the shop this week. But, I have been overhauling some old listings. This whole thing has been a learning experience, so now that I’ve gotten some things figured out, I’m revisiting the old stuff. Then I’ll hit the ground running with the new stuff. The main thing I’ve been doing is expanding my packs.
This one is a personal favorite:
I’m going up from my previous minimum of 12 designs per pack to at least 20. The shop already looks a little more robust. I’m pretty happy with it.
What I’m reading – I was right. Once The Martian hit its stride, it really picks up. I can’t tell you how much I love emergency science — a bunch of nerds rolling their sleeves up and getting stuff done. Oh, and then there’s the part where everything works and the day is saved and everyone at Mission Control celebrates. I kind of want to be an admin assistant at Johnson Space Center just so I can be around in case they need help celebrating something.
Anyway. The book. I’ll probably finish it tonight. Maybe we’ll rent the movie this weekend.
What I’m listening to – The Memory Palace. Storytelling meets history and they always make me want to cry, even if they’re relatively happy stories.There’s something about Nate DiMeo’s voice that puts a knot in my throat. The one about human cannonballs made me cry in my car on the way home from work once. I don’t know. Stop looking at me like that.
