Hey, all. So, that daily blogging thing didn’t really happen… But I’ll take it as a net gain, considering I’m still writing way more than I was previously. Spicy “Ryan, vegetarian food is so BOOOORING. How do you stand it?” What in the hell have you been eating that’s vegetarian? “I mean… tofu. Come on?… Continue reading Spicy
As I lay here in bed, in desperate need of sleep, I realize, "I haven't posted today!" When did you have time? "I guess when I took a short nap earlier?" So, no time. "But momentum!" Fine, but let's keep it casual. So, I am. Here is my #postaday for 8/5/17. More soon! - Ryan
Symphony (Teamwork and collaboration)
Well, hello there. Fancy seeing you here. Day 4! Day late again, but fuck it. Symphony Let’s make it happen! I had an amazing interaction with my team from my “9-to-5” yesterday. Technically, I’m on PTO (paid time off), but the school year is quickly approaching and our individual time-off plans overlapped such that we… Continue reading Symphony (Teamwork and collaboration)
Foggy (Why “vision”?)
Hello, Frameshifters. Our next #postaday is (was?) foggy. Day 3! Sadly, a day late ("Darn you, air travel!"), but here nonetheless. I started, once again, with a ten minute free write: *Waaaah*, ear drums reverberating, chest collapsing, eyes moist with lack of sight, blinded like a cold washcloth blanketing your face, droplets collecting on your… Continue reading Foggy (Why “vision”?)

Self-esteem and Satisfaction (What is substandard?)

I perused a couple threads and fell on what I think is a fitting topic, an amalgam of entries for this new challenge: self-esteem. Let’s start with the basics. self-esteem (n): confidence in one's own worth or abilities; the esteem in… Continue reading Self-esteem and Satisfaction (What is substandard?)
I have no idea what purpose this post will serve, but I'm writing it anyway. I am exhausted. Flat out, running on fumes, people looking at me saying, “Ryan, are you OK?” exhausted. The wax from the candle is pooling on both sides of me and I'm wondering, “How long is this f#(&ing candle?!” I… Continue reading Exhausted
Am I Setting Goals Correctly?
I had a fascinating experience over the last two weeks. After speaking with my coach, I set a goal of writing every day for the two weeks between our calls. We agreed I would give it a shot and then we’d debrief. I’ll give you two guesses how much I wrote over the last two… Continue reading Am I Setting Goals Correctly?
