Becoming an Outdoors-Woman
This weekend my mom and I had the pleasure of attending the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop at Silver Bay. BOW is an international program that focuses on educating and helping women become self-sufficient through outdoors-related skills. It’s a beautiful program with experienced instructors (who donate their time), enthusiastic volunteers, and amazing women from across the country.

lunr.js and Jekyll
I recently spent some time hooking up a Jekyll site with lunr.js. Lunr.js is a full text client-side search engine and it works rather well. It took me a few tries to understand how lunr works and then translate that into a Jekyll site (I had some help from this post) so here’s a walk through of I how got it all connected.

What I learned after working remote for 1 year
Shower and change your clothes often (or daily even) Your significant other (who also works from home) isn’t your coworker — respect their time. Leave the house (even if it’s to aimlessly walk around Jo-Ann Fabrics). Don’t do house chores during work hours (because you’ll never remember to fold the laundry). Don’t do work hours during downtime (because you’ll never stop working). Have a special lunch at least once a week (order out, grill a hot dog). Hang out with your friends. Ping your coworkers just to say, Hey! Build a tabletop for the treadmill and walk 5 miles every morning1: This is how I survived winter. ↩
