Comments Off on Character Select: Defeating My Worst Enemy

Throughout my entire life I have always been a super self conscious person. I realize to people who have met me fairly recently that probably seems like crazy talk but stay with me on this. As a kid I was skinny, smart, klutzy, and shy. I wasn’t fantastic at making friends, I was terrible at… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: Let’s Get Physical

It is no surprise that my children are allowed to play video games. In fact in a lot of situations I encourage them to experiment with games, especially on tablets, so they can learn something in a fun and interactive way. I won’t lie I also really enjoy sharing my favorite hobby with them and… Read More »

I am not the biggest fan of summer. I realize that is an incredibly controversial statement but roll with me here for a second I promise I’ll explain. My dislike of this particular season has nothing to do with the weather, traffic (although I do hate that), or it being a busy time of year… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: Friendship is Magic

I’m going to tell you guys a secret, my son is a huge My Little Pony fan and I don’t care one iota. Actually if I’m really honest I think it’s pretty rad that he’s into this show. I’m not really sure when his obsession with My Little Pony started. I think it was when I… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: Computing Metamorphosis

For approximately the last decade of my life all of my home computing has been done on a Mac. I bought my first Mac laptop when I was in my third year of college, sometime around 2003/2004 and I never really looked back. I’ve gone through probably four Mac laptops in that time and our… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: The Truth About Cats

I have many characters that I play on a daily basis; engineer, mother, wife, podcaster, writer, meat head, cook, and video game player among others. There is one hidden character that I also get to play, cat wrangler. It seems like it would be no big deal right? Cats just kind of sit around all… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: Perfectly Imperfect

I have discussed my job very briefly over the course of this column and by very briefly I mean maybe one time. Hilariously enough that was written about two months before I quit my old job and started the position I have now. My current job is a completely different animal from my last position….

Comments Off on Character Select: Negative Nathan

I would like to go on the record as saying, I love my son but he is making me insane. Nathan turned four this past April and it seems like almost immediately he became a bit of a monster. Nate has always been a little bit challenging but it’s never been anything like four. Four… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: From Baby to Touch Screen Expert in a Hot Minute

I’m not quite sure when this happened but there are no more babies in my house. It feels like overnight my sweet little baby girl has suddenly become a big kid who has opinions, favorite animals, and can operate an electronic device. To be more specific Kaitlyn has figured out how to use the Kindle… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: Technological Evolution

It’s been a while since we last talked, Internet friends. Life has a way of getting crazy in a hurry and when you have children that crazy level becomes exponentially higher. Since my last post both of my children have continued to grow. Kaitlyn turned two in March and then a month later Nathan went… Read More »
