My human changelog
A friend sent me a TikTok of someone thinking of their age as software versions. Loving this comparison, and immediately wanting to run away with it, I decided it would be fun to keep a document my version changes, a.k.a. a changelog.
I decided I'd make it public because I think it would be a fun way to capture where I'm at in life. At the end of each month, I'll add a short entry summarizing the changes I've experienced.
The versioning system is pretty straightforward. The Major version will be the decade, the Minor version will be the year, and the patch version will be the month.
For example, an entry for February on my 28th year of life would be v2.8.2.

Reconnecting with photography
After YouTube sent me down the film photography rabbit hole, I got my parent's old 35mm cameras and went all-in. Having shot on digital since I was 13, it's been a wonderful change.
The slow, imperfect and physical nature of it all really spoke to me. Much like how manual pour overs and pulling espresso shots require focused attention, so does film photography.

Growing up, I always filmed things. For the longest time, I thought I was going to end up in cinema or TV. Finding programming threw that off the rails, but I still want to scratch the itch of telling stories that way.
Being someone who doesn't find themselves the best story teller, I want to flex that muscle and practice. Loving visual mediums, and documentary style stories, I figured I'd be the guinea pig for getting those visual narratives told.
I'm not sure when it'll be released, but I'm working on putting together some videos of my photographic excursions.
Exploring music production
Currently on hold. I have too many projects going at the same time but would like to revisit eventually.
I've always been interested in making music. As someone who lives in their headphones 90% of the day, creating rich audio experiences for others speaks to me.
I'm still very green and haven't been very active lately but I still dabble on occasion.
