What am I doing now?
THIS IS THE CURRENT STATE OF MY LIFE
– "What's up, Paulo?"
I am no longer a package designer. I'm a senior art director with The Marketing Store agency in Chicago, working for McDonald's; using my design skills to fit different kinds of graphic pieces and text together.
> I'm reading about Brad Frost's Atomic design concept, and also learning Sketch, Abstract, and Zeplin to catch up with my great team mates. I've bought this course on Udemy called Sketch A-Z and it's been a great knowledge-gap-filling tool.
I started an intermittent fasting eating pattern in February 2022. Went from 84 kg (185 lbs) down to 73 kg (161 lbs) in 3 months. A miserable experience with great results.
> And I realized if you skip a few times (this fasting thing), is pretty easy to put some weight back on. Damn.
Also, I've been more committed to meditation since January 2022. Can't say why, but felt like taking it more seriously than past years.
> I wake up everyday at 5:30 am and jump on it for one hour. I'm using Insight Timer App to help me keep track.
I'm reading: "Atomic Design" by Brad Frost, "The black phone" by Joe Hill, "The curious incident of the dog in the night-time" by Mark Haddon and "Weird" by the smart and beautiful Olga Khazan.
I really tried, but I gave up on "Growth" by Vaclav Smil. It reads like an accountant describing a detailed list of whatever. Maybe I'm just not smart enough to appreciate the book.
We keep one of the world's most expensive adopted cat: a Mackerel tabby rescue called Suzu.
> We adopted her in S.Paulo, Brazil. Then she moved to Mexico with us. And then after two years she came along to Illinois. We learned that a plane ticket (plus docs) for a pet is more expensive than for a human.
