Writing and carpentry.

I mentioned my lyrics elsewhere, but I'm also looking to get more serious about blogging, and possibly even writing a book.

When I "retire" (I don't ever plan to fully, as I think the loss of productivity leads to a huge decline in physical and cognitive health), I've thought about building hideaway furniture.

Thumbs up for carpentry!

It's so unforgiving, isn't it? Cut that dovetail wrong and there's no "undo" on it.

It's like the exact opposite of being a developer.
