    Massimo Vignelli created Helvetica, originally Neue Haas Grotesk. Yes, the font! I know everything is made by someone, but why did I assume that fonts were just made by computers? When technically all the information that came and are inserted into computers are from people’s minds. I read the text

    Why I Gave Up on Self-Taught Golf

    Boy Meets Golf

    I’ve been a casual golfer for a long time. It started almost thirty years ago, though the exact date is hard to pin down. I remember buying a set of Ping knock-offs at the local Golf Discount and an Odyssey Rossie II putter that I still use. …

    One Last Look


    May 23, 2022. This is one last look at the forest at my campsite in Voyageur Provincial Park. After a very cold night freezing in my light sleeping bag, I cycled 75 km back to Casselman, then got in the car, drove back to the park, and picked up all…

    More Voyageur


    May 22, 2022. Scene in Voyageur Provincial park as I cycled today to9 Hawkesbury and back. I was a little surprised at the impact of the storm (it’s not like I had a lot of news while camping) and the continuing power outage. It also got a lot colder while…

    At Camp


    May 21, 2022. At camp in the morning after cycling in the day before, ahead of my planned ride to Rigaud. It was an eventful day punctuated by a huge storm that rolled through, knocking down trees and power lines in its path.

    The Wheel


    May 19, 2022. Disassembled wheel with at least one ball bearing missing. Today was one of those days where anything that could go wrong did go wrong. I tried to repair my broken spoke, couldn’t get it to bend around the disc brake, and ended up wrecking the wheel. All…

    That was Week 1?


    I guess… that was week 1? That felt like four weeks worth of work in one, but hey! That’s what I signed up for in a summer course. It feels somewhat better to be doing this than just watching YouTube videos all day after work. One thing I definitely am …

    I cycled through some tutorials by other classmates, as well as looking at other classmates posts finding what to do. Hopefully I did not get any viruses from clicking on so many links, but I did find one that got it done quickly! …

    A Real Safari- No Sense


    I always follow the belief to look at your surroundings, because something you may need or will learn is right in your own backyard. The yard area behind my apartment complex seems like a perfect place to take these photos. In 20 minutes, I feel like I could have taken …
