Shoestring Theory

Currently documenting the house that is eating our lives, we will return to regularly scheduled programming in a couple of more months

Because I wasn’t busy enough, I found more to do

October 5, 2009 at 12:27 pm by thetheorist

So I really don’t know how to just take a break. After finally getting most of the house done, and moving in, I’ve started picking up some freelance pieces from the Lawrence Journal-World. The first piece ran today, on a local cookbook author and her first book. You can check it out here!

Also, the ladytheorist and I are working on a side project that’s ridiculously exciting and we’ll hopefully have some news on that within a few weeks, and a new website to be launching along with the announcement. As a hint, I’ll just say that it’s related to tabletop gaming.

Plus, to add to my plate, I’ve been helping a couple of friends work on their houses, you know, because I didn’t get enough of my own. Hopefully I’ll have some pictures to share of the work we’ve done at those two houses soon.

    Man, I am so jealous that you get to do so many nifty projects!! I can’t wait to hear about your side project. Maybe it will be related to the awesomely timeless Talisman? :-)

    It is not related to Talisman, but I promise, I should have some news soon. I originally thought I would have something to talk about this week, but life intervened and it’s progressing a little slower than I thought.

    In my early 20s, I was really lazy. But somehow, a few years ago, I became a workaholic and I can’t abide not having at least 3 or 4 different projects going on at once. If I get down to just one or two, I start feeling like I have too much free time.

    Well your drive is neat, but what impresses me most is you get stuff done. You (seemingly) do not wait for life to hand you a fun project but rather seek them out. For that I applaud you, perhaps with a little too much envy that might make me stalk you in the not too distant future. 😉

    Nice article! I’m glad to see you getting back out there with a pad and paper. I don’t care how many different hats you try on in your life, the world needs you to keep writing and observing. Just remember that.
