Week in Review (March 17th)


  • Well, for the second straight week I have a good financial news: I got a promotion! It’s a lot of work, but it got me a 15% pay raise, so I’m happy about it. I’ll be able to restore my savings once again and maybe even pick up a few things I’ve had my eye on.
  • Speaking of financials, I decided to give the Apple Card a try. I was tempted by the 4.5% savings account attached and I got to say, so far I’m loving it. I’m not one to complicated my finances, but this is so easy to use. I feel like I’m already saving more money than I normally would be.
  • My mom has had a nice home gym for years, but due to a shoulder injury she now limits herself to certain machines at Planet Fitness. So, she gifted me all her dumbbells, her rack, a weighted bar, and a few other items. My little garage gym is looking amazing now and it’s given me even more of a reason to go down stairs and throw some weights around.

  • I was planning on writing a larger blog about this, but I ran a poll on Mastodon to ask users if when they discover a blog do they go back and read the archives. Honestly, I was expecting to see more people say no. Several folks commented and said sometimes, but overall the answer was yes! That really shocked me and I guess it just goes to show that old posts do have a place on a blog.


  • the launch of Scribbles and Pika, I’m reminded of a post I made a few months back Re: Let’s Make the IndieWeb Easier (and Blogging). It was a response post, and it’s amazing how quickly two solid platforms rose that meet the requirements. Its so nice when you find a community of folks who care and create great products.
  • I got a text from my buddy Jimmy the other day directing me to WrestleCade’s website. I’ve attended most of their conventions over the years, and I guess they decided to use a photo of me with Sting on their website. So, he’s jokingly nicknamed me Mr. WrestleCade because this is actually the second time I’ve showed up in their marketing and both times they have been horrible pictures.

️Healthy Living

  • Worked Out x2
  • Utilized my thirty day trial of Headspace daily and way more than I expected to since I was disappointed in the Calm app.
  • Lots of boring healthy eating this week.


  • Smallville (Season 4, Episodes 1-4) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Despite the tone shift, this season has gotten off to a great start. I’m not sure why I was dreading the addition of Lois to the cast, but she’s been a breath of fresh air.


  • Spiderman (PS5) – I really want to buy Spiderman 2, but I only just recently beat Miles Morales and it’s been a few years since I beat Spiderman on PS4. So, I’ve decided to beat the first game again, and then I’ll buy two.
  • NHL 24 (Xbox Series X) – A lifetime ago, I was a huge hockey fan. I still love a good hockey video game, but I haven’t bought once since NHL 18. I decided to give the EA Trial a shot and wow, NHL 24 is a beast. I love the momentum system and the intensity never lets up. I’ll definitely pick this up in a year when it’s super cheap.
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS5) – I spent some time hanging out with Arthur and the gang.

Listened To

  • Patience (Ajahn Brahm Talk)
  • Bowling for Soup


  • Action Comics # 1-5 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster ⭐️⭐️⭐️
