Status Report For Second Half of 2008 (thus far)

So it’s been one of those years… You know them. The type that every time you blink your eyes it’s a new month. The type where weeks literally fly by and you wonder where all the time has gone. The kind where you wake up one morning and realize that you haven’t updated your website in MONTHS.

You then wonder, “what did I use to post about?”… Your mind struggles with potential blog posts but nothing seems to be interesting enough to hit the “publish” button…

But then…

You think to yourself, “I know! A list is always an easy way to get a post out! God knows I’ve relied on them before!” So without further ado, here goes… :)

What I’ve been reading:

- The Complete Joy of Homebrewing Third Edition(my new found hobby)

- The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

- Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions(a book about what is referred to as “Behavioral Economics” ~ how Starbucks got people to start buying $4 coffees and other interesting topics about “why”)

- Just starting Anathem(already lost and I’m on the first page)

- Tons of white papers on CRM and it’s benefit in slow economies

What I’ve been doing:

- Working / traveling a lot over the last couple of months

- Volunteered at the Naper Settlement “All Hallows Eve” again (such a fun time!)

- Attended the Apple iPhone Tech Talk in Chicago

- Lost a little “green-ness” that I was known for over the last couple of years. I’m not saying anymore (in public) :)

- Decided to jump into the world of Homebrewing (hence the book selection above). Going to brew my first batch this coming weekend (a Sierra Nevada knock-off)

What I’ve been listening to:

- Ryan Adams – Cardinology

- Fleet Foxes

What I’ve been playing:

- FIFA Soccer 09 (best soccer game I’ve ever played)

- Shaun White Snowboarding (a must have if you have the Wii Fit Balance Board ~ super fun snowboarding game)

- Animal Crossing: City Folk (kind of dissapointed in this title as it’s pretty much a straight port from the Nintendo DS version ~ main benefit is the kids think it’s a cartoon when I’m playing it!) :)
