I had a lot of downtime last summer.
Well, it was actually the summer of 2016, right after the semester ended. All my friends moved to their hometowns for work. I had a great college job in town, and my boss offered to take me on full time over the summer, so I stayed. It was actually a great summer. I worked the 6:00 AM shift, so I was done by 2:30 PM, and I made tuition by Fall.
The only trouble was the afternoons. Even if I turned in by 10:30, I had a good eight hours to kill every afternoon, and I don’t do well with free time.
Fortunately, I had a box of Legos, a 25-key MIDI keyboard, a Macbook Pro, and a 120 ft2 apartment. The summer started slow, but after a couple of weeks I got a start on some projects, and by the end of the summer I had an okay portfolio (if you’re into Legos or piano).
Anyway, this blog is a gift from a good friend. It’s got my work from the summer and most everything since. If you’d like sheet music, building instructions, or a specific tutorial, be sure to let me know. In any case, stay and have a look around. Parking is free!
