An Update from the Last Year

Posted by in Miscellaneous

It’s been almost exactly a year since my last blog post, which also coincides with a full year of my life, as I turn 26 today.

Our Daily Routine – Nov & Dec 2015

Posted by in Miscellaneous

So Cory and I have started a new daily routine that we’ll follow for the next month before we leave Seattle. I figured it may be interesting enough to write a short blog post about it. I’ll try to get into some details about it, but keep it brief. FYI, a lot of this stuff will be weird to people, like putting butter in coffee and drinking saltwater… welcome to our weirdness. 5:00 to 6:45 AM: Wake up & morning ritual So we wake up early, but we also go…read more
