It has been three weeks of quarantine... and counting. Overall, I am doing fine. I know that is the introvert in me speaking. Not having to interact with people in person is amazing! And all my personal projects I have don't involve others. They are solo things like reading, blogging, etc. I have been keeping... Continue Reading →
The world is in some crazy and uncertain times! With COVID-19 spreading around the world, many areas are in “lock down”/quarantine. This is what Silicon Valley is experiencing. They are encouraging everyone to stay at home and practice social distancing. I am following the request to quarantine and so are many others. Many restaurants, bars,... Continue Reading →
Yesterday was the last day to see the Thinking Big exhibit on Ada Lovelace at the Computer History Museum. This exhibit focused on writings of Lovelace that showed her great ideas for computers in the future. In the middle of the 1800s she was thinking about how computers/mathematics can be used to study inside the... Continue Reading →
The main thing I make sure to have with me while exploring a museum is comfortable shoes (and my glasses)! Shoes support me so I can spend as long as I want soaking up the goodness of the museum.

Visitors were encouraged to share friends, resources, organizations etc that helped them in their journey. Such a moving display of community and a reminder that... Continue Reading →

Due to the PG&E shut off, I have to bring my arthritis medicine to work with me. This medicine needs to be refrigerated 24/7 and if it is not then it expires and is SO expensive to replace. Thinking of others who need electricity for their medicine and health needs ❤️
I hate getting gas! For one it’s difficult for me to get the gas cap off so I have to use a wrench to give me some help. Also I usually go to Chevron since they tend to have newer stations so the pumps are easier to handle for me. I want to cure arthritis... Continue Reading →
The earth holds so much beauty ❤️ and nature has helped me so much with my mental health. I use to think the only way to make a positive impact on the environment was to live off the grid, eat from the land etc. If I didn’t do drastic action why bother trying to save... Continue Reading →
An exhibit begins to be taken down so a new one can take its place. If I was able to design an exhibit for the Computer History Museum my exhibit would focus on creators who are using the power of technology to help improve the lives of those who have disabilities. I would also love... Continue Reading →
Nature. When I experienced health issues at the being of my time at the @computerhistory, I escaped to nature on my lunch breaks. I appreciate/love museums that incorporate nature into their exhibits. And I love when parks display information about the plants, history of the land etc. nature is a great museum.
