Week 2 notes – 2022

Another week and I’m still on this weeknotes biz, so I’ll give myself a pat on the back. Yes, it might well only be week 2, but whatever.

I’ve spent the vast majority of my work week in meetings, which hasn’t been great, but, I have kicked off some absolute banger projects. Some super creative ones, too.

Most importantly, we are releasing the 3rd edition of Every Layout imminently (who knows it might even be live now) which features a brand new homepage that I’ve been promising to design for the past two years. We’re super happy with it.

A fun thing I did this week was take my eldest daughter stargazing because she won a science competition at school. The astronomer had a banger of a telescope which allowed us to see the moon in ridiculous detail. We also got a good look at Jupiter, which was ace.

I live in the middle of nowhere now, so I’m very tempted to get into astronomy with the little’n. We got her a little telescope for Christmas, so we’ve got everything we need already.

Last up, to fulfil my resolution to get down to 14st and maintain it, I started PT sessions this week. At the time of writing, I can no longer feel my arms as they are now actually made of jelly. This PT is really good. He’s not an in-your-face fitness dickhead, but a sports scientist. I’m super injury-prone, so that provides me with some comfort. He’s also going to get me set on a long-term and sustainable plan, so that should be good.

Anyway, the timer has run out, so with that, I bid you a good weekend!

First ever filling

I’m 34 years old and today, I’m getting my first ever tooth filling.

It’s a miracle I’ve made it this far without getting one to be honest.

Last.fm 2021 summary

I got back into last.fm in the spring and they just sent me my 2021 summary. It’s quite interesting to look back on.

Last.fm is really good—albeit not amazing at scrobbling from Apple Music, because it’s definitely missed a lot.

I’ve been using it on-and-off for well over a decade and it feels more wholesome than the corporate “cool” vibe that Spotify gives off. 100% less horrendous marketing department cringe copy on this summary vs the Spotify wrapped stuff too lol.
