PJM - August '22

Sup sup ya’ll :)
August was a whirlwind - dog decisions, weddings, multiple days flying, and my first time going to an office in…ummm…about 6 years 😳
But summer is officially over and local summer has begun 🍻 - a month of perfect weather, light crowds, and hopefully some waves.
I’m in NJ/NY until early November so if you’re around hit me up - I always love to catch up with new and old friends in person.
These next few months, I’m really looking forward to getting back to an annual road trip I always did pre-COVID when fall foliage peaks…
  • Catskills (NY)
  • Green Mountains (Vermont)
  • White Mountains (New Hampshire)
  • Acadia National Park (Maine)
Un-real.
Also, looking forward to upgrading all my Apple products :) since those are always much more expensive abroad and I’m about 2.5 years outdated 😆

PROJECT UPDATES...
Nada.
I played around with some new API’s, but honestly between work and traveling I was too stressed to work on any side hustles.
PS…I do have a new project that I’m prepping for at the moment. Stay tuned for the next update ;)
CURRENTLY LIVING IN...
NEW JERSEY, USA
Back in my hometown and it feels…like home. I came back for a visit last Christmas but unfortunately, because of Covid, I didn’t get to see a lot of my friends and family. This time around things are back to normal … actually too normal - I need to chill on the “catch up for a few drinks”… every other day 😅
