Growing and Compiling

Growing and Compiling

Yes. I know. I’m a bad blogger. Bad Marc. But I have excuses don’t you know! Ever since I’ve gone back to work, we’ve not only had K in daycare, but also we are both on 10 hour days, so the schedule has basically been “Get up early, prepare daycare things, work all day until exhaustion, pick up the lil one, get home late, put him down, eat dinner, put us down. Rinse, repeat.” So, it has actually been busy…

Attention to Detail

Attention to Detail

(This post is longer than usual as I’m playing catchup!) Another year, another RIWC! In general things went well this year, however there were some oddities that made things overly complicated. Initially we didn’t know what was going on – it seemed like the setup for best of class and sweeps were far too crazy and the data entry, which normally goes fairly smoothly, seemed to take much longer. After everything was said and done, we worked through everything and…

Memories of Memory

Memories of Memory

K turned one month old this past week! It sure has gone by quickly! He has grown so much too! He’s verbalizing more and more each day and it just makes us smile when he is making his little cute noises. We can tell he’s trying out different sounds. I’ve also noticed that, when he’s not stressed out, he cries less and “verbalizes” more when he needs something like he’s wet, or slightly hungry.┬áDana has started playing with him more,…

A Fan of Opera

Now that we’re into week three, I believe Dana and I can consider ourselves professionals about this whole parenting thing… Ha! We’re only getting started. K has apparently taken to worshiping the ceiling fan. If he’s under it, either in our arms our the co-sleeper, he stares at it intently, as if he can’t look away or else it will disappear and he can’t have his fearless leader leave him now! It’s really quite hilarious to watch him checking it…

Adventure!

Adventure!

I’m back! See, I told you I’d post again! The past few weeks have just flown by as we have been getting used to the new lil person in our lives. It is amazing how one day your life is structured in a particular way, and the next it is totally different. It took me about a week to get used to this new structure, but it is going well. While there has been a huge learning curve on some…

Inspections

Inspections

It’s been practically a year since I’ve posted last on Zephire. A lot has changed in my life, which is why I decided to do some spring cleaning on the site and start posting again. It is, appropriately, the right time of year for such a thing. I recently began to inspect my view on social media and sharing details of my life online. On one hand, there is something rewarding about being connected to a “social network” in that…

Full Debut of Spring Break

Full Debut of Spring Break

It took me a while to finish up Debut by Bjork for my Full Album Project, but here it is! The album definitely brought back some good memories and some odd ones too (Violently Happy). Though I was introduced to Post before I got into Debut and generally think I like Post more (It takes more risks), Debut really is quite good. Something that struck me about it was that it tells a story from start to finish. I’m sure…

Full Album Project – Black Celebration

Full Album Project – Black Celebration

My first album for my new project is Depeche Mode’s Black Celebration. I’ve heard tracks from this album here and there when I’ve played my Club 88 playlist (80’s music and mashups) but I think it has been over 10 years since I’ve actually heard this album in full. Of course it has the definitive 80’s sound with lots of synth and drum machines, but early Depeche Mode has some unique tidbits that I always love. One is their use…

The Full Album Project

The Full Album Project

Post on my blog? Hahaha. Yeah, about that. :) I honestly thought that I would be able to keep up some sort of motivation to write in here more than once a year. Sheesh. I guess Facebook stole my time. Not that I post much there either, but I do read up on all that is going on with everyone else. So, what have I been up to? Dana and I got married last year. :) We took a trip…
