I’m so happy I got into running. When I run three miles to start my day, I feel really good afterwards and feel like I accomplished something. 🏃

California just had its most devistating round of wildfires ever. Many of the forests that burned are mananged by the federal government, therefore managed by Trump’s appointees.

This vile human tweeted this about California:

“Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forest fires that, with proper Forest Management, would never happen. Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!” — Donald Trump.

This fire devistated so many people’s lives. This fire didn’t discriminate one political party for another—Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Green Party—EVERYONE was affected in these parts of California.

So, if you’re a Californian who voted for this guy, I hope you’re happy with your decision, because I’m sure these folks who now have nothing and need this assistance are pretty fucking far from happy.

This whole thing with being more organized in planning shows for Four Brewers is pretty great! We already know what we’re drinking, and now I have all of the beer info collected for the show notes and chapter markers for each episode! Here are the beers: http://bit.ly/4bsessionbeers

At just under 14 miles of running this week, which for me, is where I want to be. 2-3 more miles today, plus 4-5 on Saturday and a few on Sunday...yeah. I’m good! 🏃

I’m not really a hat guy, but I’ve been trying over the last few months. I love this hat from Highland Park Brewery, but not sure I can pull it off. (btw, it’s Dodger blue, which I love!)

Wouldn’t it be great if our government were like:

“There’s a major problem. These refugees are desperate and need help, so much so, they’re willing to walk hundreds of miles to get this help. So, we’re going to construct a plan to help them out.”

How goddamn refreshing.

This thing helped change my life. Shortly after I bought the Series 3 in September of 2017, I started running. Now, I’m 75 pounds lighter and probably in the best shape of my entire life. This morning will likely be my final run with this little guy as my Series 4 will be here this afternoon. Thanks, Apple. 🏃

I committed to running every day this month, but decided to take today off. Yesterday’s run was not fun at all, and I could feel my legs giving out at just one mile in. Rest days are necessary. Looking forward to another 5K tomorrow.

I feel really good about cancelling Adobe Creative Cloud Suite in leu of the iPhone Upgrade plan and Photoshop/Lightroom Plan. That said, I’d gladly tack on Audition for $5/mo. This “all or nothing” approach by Adobe kinda sucks, even though I get why they’re doing it.

Took the day off from work. My day:

  • ran a 5K
  • played Rocket League on Twitch for an hour
  • saw Mission Impossible: Fallout (it was great!)
  • went grocery shopping
  • Rocket League again...
  • tacos

It was a good day.

I posted this on Facebook this morning and am considering participating. Here’s the post:

I’m considering this. I still have twitter friends, but twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, is complicit with Trump and cares not about the spread of hate on his platform. It’s tough for me. I love twitter and have met so many great people that have in ways, literally changed my life. Sad it’s come to this.

That being said, I’m on micro.blog now. I own my content and they have strict, well-defined community guidelines. I encourage you to sign up. I’m able to answer any questions you might have about the service.

I am so happy with the state of my podcasting studio at the moment. I can podcast live with 6-8 ppl, take live Skype calls, and record YouTube videos (streaming and recorded) with ease. On top of that, I can stream XBox, Switch, or NES Classic on Twitch/YT on the fly. I love it.

Today has been 100% anxiety driven. I’m being quite productive, but the catalyst for that productivity is just the worst.

I’ve committed to running five miles before beer fests that I attend for a while, now. The last five or six fests, I think. It’s called “The Beer Fest Five.” Today is the Pils & Love fest. I don’t want to run five miles, and I’m justifying it because Pilsner is lighter on calories and carbs than most other beer styles. Yeah, that makes sense. I don’t need to run today!

...I’m still gonna run, though.
