I had this super messed up dream about job hunting last night. I dreamed that I was heading towards a job interview and I was on the bus. My mom was there and she told me she set me up with this company and don't worry about it because she handled...

Now there's a symbol I didn't think I'd see again. My sketchbook is totally legit now.

Every once and a while, you should just drop everything and lie on the ground for a few minutes. It really sheds a new perspective on everything. First of all, the things you saw that were upright are now all sideways and stuff. Everything you too...

Yesterday was a big drawing day for me! I spent the morning at Stanford, then drove up to San Francisco and hung out in the Presidio to go rock climbing in the afternoon. This freaking beats sitting in a cubicle for 8 hours and having fat, old, wh...

Today I drew a tree. I was going to draw a building, and then I drew a tree instead.

It was so early that Sunday morning that the sun wasn't fully out and the usual California dawn was overcast with foreboding clouds. In the dim, blue light of the morning it was obvious that the forecast was going to be rain and cold. Naturally, I...

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup
I didn't know that Theranos was so fucking crazy. Just from casually listening to the news I thought it was just some girl who bit off more than she could chew and then started lying. No, this is the Final Fantasy 7 house of silicon valley start ups. I was captivated by this guys book the whole way through. I thought 350 pages would be long but it flew by. Also the stereotype pairing of young girl engineer and creepy piece.of shit incompetent old guy is really common in Silicon Valley. It's the worst. I need to get out of here.

12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos
This book is life anecdotes backed up with psychology for how to become an enlightened person. He also really likes the Bible. (Belief not necessary to enjoy the book). I think he has some interesting points but I disagree on a couple things, for instance when he says it's completely unreasonable to not want to have kids or that "striving the maximum good for most people" is specific enough to let you figure out what you should do in a day. I learned a lot of cool things about lobsters though.

Small Business For Dummies
I found this on a table at work and it was from 1998 which is funny because computers and the internet were super new back then. This is an overview for someone who has no clue how to start a business

Web Client Programming with Perl
This is a basic and outdated book but it's good for learning about perl and html request interactions. It's another textbook though so that was kind of boring to read.
