Drones of August – Journal 8/22/18

Almost a month since the last journal. At least these are getting slightly more predictable.

Well, having time to get my head on straight, a number of things have happened, as most things inevitably do when one gets idle.

I’m going to become the contracted videographer for a local EDM venue.

I have a wedding on my docket to shoot.

I’m going to be at the Art Institute of Seattle on Tuesday to see what they can do for me.

The pieces of a Tiny Whoop Beta65S arrive tomorrow, and I will be fully immersing myself in the FPV world. Thinking of calling it the Reality City Moth when it’s all done.

I am being allowed to dive further into my areas of specialty at work with drone stuff and photography in general, which has so far been a blast.

And I have surmounted a series of upgrades to improve the general nature of the main site. Not least of which includes a shop to buy poetry in as a direct download! 

Year Five did start with a bang after all. After all the buildup, all the planning, I thought I wouldn’t see the day where I could make present me proud enough to go on. But I have seen that day, finally.

Lithium Autumn, which has been a constant fixation over the last year, is almost to a point where I can release it now, and this time it won’t be appearing on Amazon. It’ll show up right here in my shop.

Getting closer and closer to being sUAS certified, and am much enjoying the knowledge studying is giving me.

You may have noticed poetry take a significant slowdown this month, and that would be a side effect of a full-time work schedule as well as a general disinterest in updating, unfortunately. That’s my bad. I hope I made up for it with all the optimization and stuff. I want to make my site not only pretty but functional, as well. It’s been lacking up until a week ago.

Personal life has also dictated a lot of my time lately, for the better. I need to be present which is leaving me with not a lot of spare time for sitting down and having a good think. However, I’m lucky to find myself able to figure out how to navigate being busy. And I’m fucking loving it.

The race is back on, and the next video I publish on the site might just be of some FPV freestyling. Who knows?

The game is truly afoot this year, and all energies are making connections. I’m even in touch with Michael Anderson of Downtown FPV, who is a pilot for Tiny Whoop. So I’m in good hands if I need any help.

Thank you for your continued support, and if you’d like to pickup a collection of poetry from me, why not Abandon Ship?
