    Rose, Thorn, and Bud

    Hey everyone! I want to invite you all to try one of my favorite mindfulness exercises: Rose, Thorn, and Bud. We use this at summer camp a lot as a bunk talk activity, to let our campers reflect and share about their day. The exercise is simple enough. Just ask yourself these three things: Rose - What was the highlight of your day today? Thorn - What was one thing that didn't go as well as you'd like today? Bud - What is something you're looking forward to tomorrow? I really love RTB, and use it myself for reflection and refocusing on positive things going on in my life (without trying to ignore the negative). And making myself find something good, and focus on something I'm looking forward to helps me be positive and grateful even on the terrible, awful, no-good, very bad days. If you like this, feel free to use it for yourself! Here's one of mine from earlier this week: Rose: I had a really good performance coaching session with my supervisors! They had very nice things to say, and we agreed on where my growth areas are and it just went really well. Thorn: I had a ticket to fix one of our test environments, and it took a really long time and was blocking other people's work for most of the day... That was a lot of pressure. Bud: After years of saying "I think I want to get a tattoo," I've started talking with a studio about getting a tattoo! And I'm really excited! I've got a design picked out and everything, and I found a studio with work that I really like!

    Baking

    This weekend we made cookies The recipe was definitely a lie and did not have me save enough dough for the green and white layers as it should have.

    Hi kids. I love baking. I haven't in a while but then i was, uh, inspired this weekend. I might have to dig through facebook to find some of my past baking adventures as well. They were many and varied. Anyway, who else likes baking and/or baked goods in general?

    502 Bad Gateway Error

    I'm not seeing high traffic in our report, so I'm not sure it's any issue with our forum. I believe we're using an Invision-hosted server, so it may be an issue with their services. If it happens again, clearing cache and restarting your browser can sometimes help with persistent gateway errors. And if it persists for more than 5-10 minutes, let us know so we can hit up Invision's support about it.

    Web Development Stuff

    Hi friends. I know this isn't really creativity in the, like, artistic sense, but web development is where most of my creative juices get channeled lately. Anyway, I just finished a new silly li'l website. http://inthishousewe.love/andappreciate/clever use of domain names i found out .love is a top level domain and i had to exploit this meme. you can change the text of the last parameter to change the text that appears in the ascii house. I think I'm really clever.

    Thanks! I've got a handful of little dumb projects I work on occasionally. like the Wolf 359 interactive timeline that used to play audio clips as you visited each episode but I need to fix because I was reorganizing and broke all the links: http://wolf359timeline.herokuapp.com/ and the English to Annoying Discord Emoji Text Generator: https://protected-crag-83545.herokuapp.com/ and I have a little discord bot I'm playing with. He's a moderately ineffective censor bot who replaces bad words with emojis.

    Post Your Playlists

    Someone on Tumblr told me that my "stop being moody" playlist helped them get through three essays and that I have great taste in music. Little do they know, I'm eight other peoples' music taste wearing a trench coat. Anyway, the playlists are public now

    Whatcha Readin'?

    Hey everyone! What've you been reading lately? Fiction, non-fiction? What do you recommend? Right now I'm making my way through Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant, which is an amazing book about highly predatory, very frightening mermaids. Who use sign language. It's awesome. Highly recommend, along with Mira Grants Newsflesh books, which are about journalist bloggers in post-zombie apocalypse America.

    Post Your Playlists

    i have two very important playlists but i'm terrible at curating playlists and have questionable taste in music, so i just have like a 27 hour long playlist of whatever music i've enjoyed lately.

    does anyone know why a cupcake that contains 0 corn or corn byproduct would still taste... like corn?
