What I’m doing now
- I got a new bike in late
March from excellent local bike shop Thick Bikes
and am super happy with it so far. The last bike I got was in 2006, hopefully
this one will last as long. I also got an
indoor bike trainer
early this year and have been really digging it. (Also kicking myself for not
getting it earlier…)
- Still making lots of bread and other baked goods,
though I’m no longer posting photos of every bake because it feels weird with
so much other stuff going on.
- Thinking about my role in our unjust society, and what I can do to help.
(Beyond donating to a number of orgs. There are so many doing great work!)
- Learning to live with a teenager (now 15!) and the roller-coaster emotions
she contains and inspires.
- Six months in at the US Digital Service and it’s going
great. I think. Onboarding and working entirely remotely has been more
difficult than I anticipated. But the mission is amazing (currently working
with the CDC helping to run operations for this project)
and the people I work with are among the best of my entire career. Really
inspiring, and quite humbling.
