The bullet point method is apparently becoming my preferred way of updating the internets about my life.
- Working on one project at work this week instead of several, and suddenly I can focus again. Don't get me wrong, I can multi-task with the best of 'em, but multi-tasking always results in a loss of some productivity by necessity. Having the chance to spend an entire week working almost exclusively on a single project is great, a nice change from the last couple of weeks where I've been all over the place. I am a wireframing machine right now. :D
- I cross-posted my recap of the last Criminal Minds episode to afterthree.net, and while tidying up the language it also expanded a little. I am too lazy to edit the LJ version to include the new/modified content, mostly because I know if I do, I'll just keep adding to it. The circle has to stop somewhere.
- Thinking about trying to start a feminist meetup in Edmonton. I spend a considerable amount of my online time reading feministy articles and meta, and I think it would be lovely to hang out in person with some like-minded people in a pub and talk feminist meta and issues. I've been looking for a meetup like this that already exists in Edmonton, but no luck so far. I'm not really sure how to go about organizing something like this or even finding local feminists whom might be interested, as I've had trouble even locating local feminist groups. Probably tracking down someone in Women's Studies at the UofA would be a good place to start, yes?
- The next Edmonton Pecha Kucha night has been announced, and the call for presenters is out. I'm trying to come up with something to present. Any thoughts?
Pecha Kucha Night was originally designed as an event in Tokyo for designers to network and show their work, and the presentation style is simple: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's since expanded to something like 300 cities in the world, and is no longer a design-centric event: often there is a theme of the night, but in general the presentations are wide and vairied. The last Edmonton Pecha Kucha event was almost entirely comprised of businesses or organizations presenting varying degrees of marketing material (and as a result was mostly awful with only a couple of really good presentations), but I really love the format.
- Threw my first frisbee of the season last night! \o/ Went to Rundle Park to play Frisbee Golf with various friends, and did (I think) much better at it than I did last summer. Also possibly playing Ultimate Frisbee again this year on a casual basis. There's a group of local people who meetup every Wednesday and play for fun, which is right up my alley.
