2017 IN REVIEW

2017, I'm not sad to see you go. It's been quite the year. As I do every year, I like to reflect on the outgoing year. I've already posted my favorite music from 2017 and now it's time to reflect on other highlights from 2017.

2017 IN REVIEW: MUSIC

As I do every year, I like to look and reflect on the year. For me, this process usually starts highlights from the past year. Given music is such a big part of my life, for the past several years I have highlighted favorite albums. This year, I decided to just look at the data, namely the number of plays an album had to determine my "top 9."

Today, I had to say "until we meet again" to my little man, Harley. That guy. He had such a hard beginning to life. And yet, he gave and gave in his own way. He was small, but he carried a load that would make Atlas sweat. His heart was huge. His love, bottomless.

BEST OF 2015: MUSIC

Music is a big part of my life. I wish I could say it's because I play, but I have little musical talent. Instead, I love listening to music and it truly is the soundtrack to my life. I don't know what I'd do without music; it's one of the finest art forms in my opinion. With 2015 drawing to a close, I reflect on 10 albums I thoroughly enjoyed this past year.

JOB SATISFACTION

i was really excited to find out that i made the credit roll for a video game i worked on. i worked on this game for a few years -- long before it was announced publicly. it was a labor of love, and like any creative product, was filled with highs and lows, but ultimately, i am really proud of the end product.
