Week Twelve: Back in Business

July 11, 2016, 6:43am

Hello there! It's been a while. Exactly one month ago, I was packing up a moving truck in beautiful Berkeley, California in preparation for my move to Cleveland, Ohio. It seems like a lifetime ago and so much has happened since then.

From Las Vegas, NV...

...to watching Game 5 of the Warriors vs. Cavaliers NBA Finals in Flagstaff, AZ...

...with a quick stop in Sedona, AZ...

...to a hike down into the Grand Canyon...

...to sleeping in the car in Moab, UT because the campsites were all full...

...(Moab was nicer during the day)...

...to camping in Gunnison, CO...

...to a beautiful drive through the Colorado Rockies that the moving truck absolutely could not traverse over 10mph...

...to a long, uneventful ride through the Midwest...

...where I found a miserable town with a great name...

...to making it to Cleveland just in time to watch the Cavs win the NBA Finals while secretly rooting for the Warriors...

...then flying immediately back to the Bay Area...

...to attend Tony's wedding.

I'm in Cleveland now, living out of moving boxes and enjoying such perks as my new standing desk...

...and close proximity to Lake View Cemetary, resting place of John D. Rockefeller and a great source of ghost Pokemon.

Which more or less brings us to today, where my girlfriend Lutetia received her White Coat, thus marking the beginning of her medical career.

I'm getting used to the heat and humidity in Cleveland, but I still miss Berkeley and it's perfect sunsets...

...beautiful campus...

...and amazing burritos.

Besides unpacking and setting up my new apartment, I've also been doing a lot of work on this site. Of course, you can't see any of these changes yet but I've implemented lots of backend features like account logins, authentication, and a simple CMS. This is actually the inaugural blog post for the CMS.

The greatest part of being in Cleveland is that there are so few distractions! I'm planning some pretty big things for the site, some more ambitious weekly games, and more. Also, now that this blog is set up, more frequent blog posting. Yes, I really mean it this time.
