I'm Fucking Depressed - But It's Going To Be Okay
Right this very second, as I type these very words, I'm depressed. I'm normally some varying degree of depressed that ranges from can't fake a smile for the kids or wife, to life isn't so bad so I'll put on a happy face. Yet depression is always with me. A monkey on my back.
A Retrospective of CrossFit
I've been wanting to write down my thoughts about CrossFit for awhile. I've been practicing this type of training for two years now and while it's helped me better undertand my body and got me moving well, there are a lot of things that I disagree with when it comes to the methodology and community.

The complexity of managing all of these tiny services and functions is being abstracted away, allowing those without devops skills to take advantage of serverless technologies.
What I Learned from a Year of Streaming
I have a tendency to get really into my hobbies and streaming is no exception. It turned out to be a deeper rabbit hole than I imagined and I quickly discovered if you want to set up a quality stream there is A LOT that goes into it. I know, big surprise, right?
Creating Community for Online Events
With GraphQL Summit now behind me, I wanted to share my thoughts on what went into building the community around the conference. This won't be a how-to guide (you should talk to Domitrius Clark if you're interested in doing something similar), but more of what the goals were, and how we approached meeting them.
Defining Practical Fitness
Most people have a life goal they want to achieve when they start their fitness journey. Whether it's to lose weight, improve athleticism, or be able to move well, the goal is something that is applicable to the real world. However, once the fitness journey starts it can be easy to lose sight of the original goal and start to invest in goals related to the area of fitness itself.
