A Day in the Life
Today was Monday, May 9th, and I made a valiant effort to unleash all the technologies at my disposal to put together a lil’ documentary of my life. Mostly as a proof of concept, and an attempt to show people a slice of my life.
It took way more effort than I had energy for; for some reason I was tossin’ and turnin’ in bed at 3:00am last night, for hours it seemed.
