What I'm up to now

Last updated on December 29th, 2023

It's the end of the year, so it's time to make new promises to become a better, more well-rounded person.

I work on Elsie, a software product I'm working on with my wife and two employees. 2023 has been a rough year, but we made it through. Starting a business has been a challenging experience but a lot of fun, too. I'm learning a lot about myself and the work I enjoy and don't enjoy doing.

When I'm not working, I'm usually reading a book. I take one with me everywhere I go. I read 55 books in 2023, which was fun! I read from a wide range of topics, mostly fiction, but I plan on reading more non-fiction this year. An area of interest has been history, so we'll see how that goes.

I plan on writing more in 2024. I've been doing so privately this year, but I'd like to start sharing ideas with others mainly because I want more from the internet than just the quick dopamine hits I get from social media. I'm unsure where this will lead, but I want to get going and have momentum working in my favor.

Something I tried to do this year was cook more often, but I didn't stick to it. Eating healthier and taking care of my body is becoming increasingly important. I want to make time for making home-cooked meals and daily exercise.
