Things I collect (with examples)

Journals

I keep a variety of journals for different purposes. In one that I started in 2002, I write about my personal & family life, probably of little interest to those who don't know me personally. But, I also have a spot for more general interest topics, like design, internet, science, media, culture and other random curiosities that a wider audience may like. Occasionally I will publish a travelogue, like this one documenting my summer road-tripping the United States.

  • The Blog*Writings of general & great interest.* A blog from the worldly web developer, covering liberal arts topics like design, internet, science, media, culture, computers, snacks and other random curiosities that a wider audience may enjoy.
  • USA2*America, circumnarrated.* In the summer of 2003, I hit the road and spent 75 days traveling all across the USA (and a few detours into Canada) and kept a well-documented journal of the experience. This travelogue is the result of that ultimate roadtrip.
  • Ramblings*A personal diary, of a sort.* My original online journal, I started Ramblings in 2002. Here I write about my personal & family life, milestones in the life of my baby boy Jack, and other things notable to family & friends. The bulk of the archives are from college - the inane babblings of a creative, shy college guy.

ice and cozy

I guess the big news today is that school was cancelled. It’s Tuesday, so like usual, I didn’t have class until 3:30 anyway, but when I got up around 10, I noticed it was kinda gray and rainy out and cold, and honestly, I was kinda looking ...

Statuses

I use Twitter to post brief thoughts about my daily life. Sometimes these answer the question "What are you doing?", as Twitter instructs, but I also enjoy making random observations on TV, music, movies and pop culture, soliciting opinions and advice, sharing interesting things I find online, and posting about life's milestones, as to have a written, timestamped record for future reference. I find it a great, unobtrusive way to keep in touch with coworkers, distant friends & family, and others that I otherwise wouldn't.

Here's how a random status looks like on this site:

Giving my Jeep its 30k mile maintenance today for Christmas. Too bad it has 45k miles on it. Still, should like having 16 new spark plugs!

Photos

I used to take a lot of photos; more than what you'll currently find on the site, anyway. I started using Flickr to share my photos in 2006, so most of the photos I've taken since then are already on the site; the earlier ones are soon to come. Eventually, I will upload photos from all of my travels, including the year in Ireland & Europe, and my USA2 roadtrip. Also included are some of my favorite photos from other Flickr photographers.

Bookmarks

I bookmark places I like on the internet. These generally fall into one of three categories: (1) Awesomeness that absolutely must be shared, (2) Resources that I'd like to keep tabs on, for future reference, and (3) TL;DR items that I really, really want to read, but just haven't had the time when I first found it. All of these are things I think you might like too.

Photo albums

A photo album is a logical collection of photos, usually around some central theme, like those taken on a particular occasion, or in a certain way, or with a similar subject. I tend to group my photos by occasion, since my photos can already be navigated by location and subject matter.
