I worked from home for almost five years (three days per week pre-COVID). I had a great home office setup with dual monitors, an electric positionable standing desk with memory settings, wireless keyboard and mouse, laptop dock ... the works. Loved it.

edit: I'm not sure why snap.as has the photo upside-down. I even tried editing the photo to be upside-down before I uploaded and it was still wrong. /shrug

Still in the early stages of our half marathon training. Sundays are our “long run” days. We're currently (only) at four miles. But, I can feel my fitness levels rising and I can see the numbers getting better.

My family got into watching RPDR about two years ago. We started with season 5 and were hooked almost immediately. spoiler alert The winner, Jinkx Monsoon, is one of my favorites of all time.

In the past two years we've binge watched all the seasons (except season 1) including two of the All Stars seasons. It's just been a lot of fun for us.

To follow-up on yesterday's post, my office-mate and I chatted and came up with a plan.

I started a new job a few months ago in which I needed to actually go into an office. It was quite the culture shock after working from home for almost five years.

One of my biggest worries was obviously going back during a global pandemic. The company seemed to be handling things well by requiring masks, providing wipes and hand sanitizer, not allowing gatherings in the hallway, etc.

I already have a “real” blog using Wordpress that I've posted to on and off for a few years.

I discovered write.as just over a year ago and tried to use it as my Project 365 destination. I did it for a while, but it was several extra steps, so I abandoned it.

However, I've always liked the minimal interface of write.as. It allows you to really focus on writing and your message. I'm also an old programmer (as in from a long time ago, not age; OK, maybe a little bit age too) ... so I enjoy using Markdown to format my posts (note: write.as has a tool you can enable to use rich formatting instead of Markdown if you'd rather).

Anyway, as I embark on the 100 Days to Offload challenge and write every day for 100 days, I'm going to test a few things out on write.as. I do wish there was commenting more readily available (they're working on a commenting system). But, I'm hoping that this will post to Mastodon and then discussions could happen there if needed. Trial and error ... we'll see.

OK, trying a new challenge. It's called 100 Days to Offload. Essentially I have to write something on my blog every day for 100 days.

I'm using this as a challenge to pay closer attention to my thoughts. Things that I might want to share. Things I want to write about.

I think I'm up to the challenge (after all, I've done several years worth of Project 365 photos). More than anything I hope to walk away from this challenge with more of a “voice” for my blog.

Side note: I'm playing with moving from Wordpress to Write.as. That's why this shows up here instead of there.

That's training for a half marathon. Get it?
