YouTube thumbnails, t-shirt designs using Affinity Designer, Muscle Milk, rockin’ the scene with Philz Coffee Barista RJ, Capital City Toastmasters club meeting, and a meeting with Toastmasters club members Jonathan Faridian and Jaytika Nand to do a little speech contest coaching.
Always good to see a long line at Philz Coffee Sacramento. Green Superfood by Amazing Grass is amazing (first heard about it from Tim Ferriss). Amazon Locker is a life-saver. A little showcase of Dad’s rescue-dog, Sammy, and his two cats, Brin and Pepper, during Easter Sunday. Really like Dad’s water fountain in the backyard. My brother, Lance, making sure a snake makes it safely across the road. T-shirt designs: one for Sacramento, and one called “Analog” for my audio friends. Taking photos of the cool iron bike rack in front of Philz Coffee. Using Affinity Photo for photo editing, and Affinity Designer for t-shirt design. Converted an old PNG file to vector format with Convertio.co (very helpful). Using iMovie to put together the vlog. And sifting through fonts.
