What I’m up to right now

Much like everyone else at this time (hopefully), I’m staying at home as much as possible due to COVID-19. I’m a homebody normally, so it hasn’t been too bad, but it’s still been hard not being able to just go somewhere whenever I feel like it. I’m lucky to have my girlfriend and pets to spend my free time with.

Cooking

Since Amanda and I have been staying in more lately, we’ve been cooking a lot more. It’s been fun to explore all of the cookbooks she has and cooking up dishes that I wouldn’t have tried to do on my own. I’m also attempting to start a sourdough starter again. I’m stoked about it. I’m going to be sticking with this this round, so good or bad, I’m gonna have some homemade sourdough, dammit.

Work

I’ve been trying to keep busy with work. Things are going well with my part time job at the web development company I work for. We’ve all been working from home and it’s been really nice. It’s going to be hard to go back to an office after this.

I’m trying to stay busy with my own business and finish up some project so I can start looking for more work. I’m hoping I can pick up some new clients or have some more projects come up with my current clients.

Side Projects

I’m currently building a CRM for myself with Elixir, Phoenix, and LiveView. I’ve built some stuff with Elixir and Phoenix before, but LiveView is a game changer. I’m really excited about it. I kind of want to turn it into a SaaS (I know, I know, another CRM), but I’m not sure yet. I may make it open source. I may do both. Who knows. I’m building it to fit my needs as a one person business as well as adding things that I think would be handy for small agencies from my experience working in one. It’s been fun so far!

Website

This website, as of this writing, is brand new! So, content-wise it’s bare. I have a bunch of ideas for stuff I want to write about. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while and I’m really excited that I’ve managed to get things moving forward.
