A Few Ideas That Have Been Rattling Around My Brain

SWEDISH-CHEF-psd71677

  • build a 3D printer from scratch. experiment with printing clothes and food and age appropriate toys for ProsAlpha. throw a catered fashion show. keep the toys.
  • design, build, decorate and use a badass halloween advent calendar ala https://www.etsy.com/listing/240614464/this-halloween-advent-calendar-house-is# cause badass. maybe make something similar for xmas. maybe something totally different.
  • speaking of advent calendars, organize / collect / make decorations for the holidays that we actually want to celebrate in our family (xmas and halloween and …? chocolate easter? sinterklaas? thanksgiving?) cause ProsAlpha is going to be old enough to make memories soon and little holiday shrines are cool. like bowties.
  • get back into shape walking / running. get / make a zombie morph suit. run an obstacle course in it. with friends.
  • invent something awesome. something something something. make millions.
  • take figure skating lessons. and / or hip hop lessons. and / or circus silk lessons. perform.
  • join the local toastmasters. write up more public speaking projects. CFP that shit. practice practice practice. speak at a TED event.
  • research and write more blog posts on groningenrain.nl; at least twice a week. continue to write on 750words.com daily.
  • write up the past five years of my life that i haven’t been allowed to talk about because that part of my life is almost over and decide if it’s worth posting or not. sorry not sorry for vagueness.
  • solidify the daily schedule to include exercise / morning routine / evening routine / ProsAlpha.
  • develop a python based app inspired by ProsAlpha (text based adventures ala Zork and Adventure, but you’re a baby trying to do baby things and the enemies / obstacles are the cat running away from you / not being able to walk / time for a nap / mama). upload it to github. finish howtolearnpythonthehardway.com.
  • nail down my personal sense of style. purchase a doctor who inspired watch fob. sort the wardrobe. donate clothes.
  • buy / hack a raspberry pi. integrate it into an interactive / moving costume. explore the city center in full costume. during the markt. on a saturday. invite others to join me.
  • organize an open source artistic event. a series of canvases are set up, anyone can contribute anything to any canvas for an evening. upload the results. is there a way to make this online interactive? a twitter feed that people can post to and the artists can choose to be inspired by those statements or not as they work. the live hashtag would need to be projected in the midst of the canvases during the entire event. eventually make it a twenty-four hour event.
  • create two youtube channels: one for the dancing engineer (creatively logical and logically creative projects) and one for the fierce mama (adventures in motherhood). figure out what that means.
  • experiment with baking, especially grandpa’s no knead bread. and maybe cooking. develop seven breakfast / lunch / dinner dishes. perfect them. actually cook for the family. lol, cooking. but the no knead bread thing is possible.
