We Do the Best We Know

EVEN MY boyfriend who has an incurable, irrational hatred of spiders (and anything guilty by association)  thought this photo was pretty cool. That makes this a huge success.

More travel posts are coming down the pipes! It’s taken awhile, but I’ve put together a really good framework of adventure for this summer. I’ve also been experimenting more with video and alternative media types, so I’ve got some cool stuff to share!

In the meantime, I’m elbows-deep in code learning mySQL for database hacking in a data journalism workshop (the same kind of reporting that yielded this hilarious Star article, ‘This Fire Hydrant Cost Toronto Drivers the Most in Parking Tickets‘). AND, I leave for Milwaukee on Thursday morning for a very anticipated #Bloghouse.

Suffice to say, I’m having a great time, but looking forward to being back next Sunday and having more time to write and publish!

In the meantime, this Voltaire quote which I’ve always found oddly comforting, like a sigh of relief.

All the best,
