Taking A Break: A Retrospective

Share Button

I was going to title this post Not Giving A Fuck: A Retrospective, but that’s not quite accurate. As it turns out, it’s hard not to care. This post is also very personal, and I feel like it’s important to finally write. Not too recently I announced on Twitter that I was going on hiatus. […]

With the recent renaming of the platform I feel inclined to say something, although I’m quite enjoying my “I don’t give a fuck” vacation. Feels great.

My Welded Metal Sculptures (from way back)

I used to weld a long time ago when I was living in Europe. It’s been on my mind lately to put together an image post with all the pictures of the sculptures (in one place). I miss welding a lot, almost as much as I miss my grandfather (he taught me, I’m so proud). […]
