So what are you guys plans for the weekend?
Im going to sit in my underwear playing computer games.
Might have a shower. Might not.
Super Jealous haha. What game's?
Might go all postal in GTA then fly around Gotham/Arkham in Batman Origins.
Going to a James Blake concert on Saturday and adopting a dog on Sunday!
Building IKEA furniture all weekend. Not disappointed. I've been using a desk chair and paper box as my couch and footstool for a week.
18 exciting hours of wireframing, iteration, shipping for development, and then realize you missed dinner with your girlfriend's parents.
I'm going laser-tagging with my little brother as it's his birthday today. Then it's home to carry on working on a side project, what about you? Also, more of this on DN.
Awesome. Tell him a DN dude says Happy Birthday!
Haha... nice question. =)
Tomorrow I'm gonna relax. I have a 7 week old son, a full time job and some sideprojects. It's been a pretty dynamic week, so tomorrow all attention is to my son and my girlfriend! =) Sunday I'll do some work, have some friends and family coming over so will be fun.
You got any plans?
That is what weekends are for - sounds great!
Haha, thanks for asking ;)
Well tomorrow I'm going meet up with my girlfriends family, her brother, who lives in Stockholm just got a baby girl last friday, so we are all going to see her for the first time.
Otherwise than that, I'm going to work on my sideproject, that is something, there haven't been a lot of time for, the last few weeks, so I'm looking forwards to pick up where i left off :)
Have a nice one, and thanks for sharing!
Ow wow! Congratulations! I hope everyone is doing fine.
Thanks and have a great weekend! =)
Cuddling with my significant other
Well I turned 21 today, so friends are coming over (some having traveled to Chicago from my hometown in Michigan) and we're getting wasted, going playground-hopping (it's like a bar-crawl,) and eventually falling asleep watching Spider-Man.
Happy Birthday then ! :p. Don't drink too much
Potentially going to happy hour tonight. Maybe going to a friends party on Saturday. Might do brunch Sunday. I'm a pro at last minute decision making.
Oh, and cleaning around the house because some fellow LayerVault hooligans are coming to visit next week.
I'm taking my 5 year old son to soccer class, working on a side project, and having friends over for dinner.
Heading to Yosemite for hiking and photography. And really really fresh air!
Saturday: Traveling back to my home town for a barbecue and beers for my father-in-law's birthday. Then maybe beers with old friends.
Sunday: I'll have the best tacos in the world for breakfast, then heading back home.
Love this thread so far haha :)
For me I SHOULD be working on my portfolio (it's been sitting there for way too long) and finishing up some freelance, contract and personal projects as I just got laid off.... But I am starting to feel sickish so that may end up not happening unfortunately.
I don't know why I've picked Fridays as my cleaning day but thats my plan for the night. Wine and hoovering, yay!
Other than that, I guess wine/beer will happen on saturday as well, perhaps try to learn some HAML/SASS.
My brother has just started up selling some t-shirts and surprise, surprise wants a website. That's pretty much my weekend.
We did this in Shopify in no time. Bought a good theme and modified it a bit: http://shop.iconfinder.com/
That's the plan! I was going to give https://tictail.com/ a go but I haven't got the time for tinkering at the moment.
Would like to use them for something one day, it seems like a good little set up
Lots of family stuff here, nice to see :)
Some friends are playing a gig tonight, and another tomorrow. Sunday is recovery, delicious food & side projects.
I was about to say exactly the same thing. Never thought a post on here would trigger such nostalgia for my family.
Thanks DN, a weekend skype date with my mom is in the works.
OT: I LOVE your avatar!
:) Let's see. Tomorrow morning I have rowing practice. After that, I'll spend the day working on a tool for UI Designers that my brother and I are building. At night, I'm taking my girlfriend for dinner :). Sunday always gets the best of me! I usually end up just relaxing, watching some Netflix, and grading my class' assignments or midterms. Thanks for the question! Have fun in Stockholm!
Is the UI tool under wraps or... ?
I'm going to finish this track I'm working on: https://soundcloud.com/martin-leblanc-eigtved/trance-snippet I recently bought a nice synth: http://instagram.com/p/daWB91ptf_/ - so this is what I spend some of my free time on.
Also I have a wonderful son I'm going to play around with: http://instagram.com/p/eunFY9ptWt/
Starting week 2 of my japan trip and taking a Shinkansen train from Tokyo to Kyoto. Taking lots and lots of pictures for my work-in-progress photoblog http://paulstamatiou.com/photos Have taken about 75GB of RAWs so far :)
Taking my son to http://touchatruckaustin.com/. He really just loves touching trucks.
Go to the gym and hopefully set a PR; free show/concert for Dia De Los Muertos @ Grand Park in DTLA; brush up on my coding and do some sketching perhaps.
Yard cleanup before the snow hits (somehow Northern Alberta is still snow free)
Tinker with the chisels that I'm pretending I know how to use by building things I don't know how to build
Try and get a few portrait illustrations finished (I'm only at #7 of 25 for a fundraising project and need to get my ass in gear: http://kerbydesign.com/project/cf/)
A fair amount of sitting around and drinking & eating at the gastrobub where my wife put up a new photo show this morning (http://detourphotography.ca/project/ovegur/)
I think it's going to be a good weekend.
Hand washing my car (takes forever, but it's relaxing), catching up with friends, taking my girlfriend out for a nice dinner, and reading a lot! :) Thanks for asking!
I am going to attend "Smart City Hackathon for the City of Istanbul".
This feels like a question that is asked around the office. ;D
Landlord is sending her minions to examine the flat for an evaluation because she is remortgaging. So nothing as fun as all you chaps. :(
If time permits, early Christmas shopping!
Wife has book club tonight. I play video games. Tomorrow morning, we head up to the NC mountains for a football game at the university I attended. Tailgate time.
I'm planning to head into Boston and take some photos of my wife in a park and around the city. She's 16 weeks pregnant and just starting to show so it should be a nice opportunity to capture some photos while shopping for maternity clothes.
I'll also spend some time on my side project and some probono branding and website work for a single mom starting a business.
Maybe hit up a farmers market before it gets too cold.
Have a drink with my girlfriend and her mother tonight, see my parents for brunch tomorrow and then in the afternoon I'll probably try and do the train heist scenario on GTA online. Got to try and get 5 stars.
And yes, excellent question!
Visiting my brother, which entails travelling across the whole country just to see him! A rather long train journey should give me some time to work on an idea :)
Going back to my home town to see the family :) Probably end up doing design work for them, you know how it ends up haha.
Great question by the way!
Haha, Yep I know ;)
Today is chilling out, Sunday I'll be running a 60 mile ultra marathon.
- Cooking. Just made a chorizo and sweet potato chili and making burritos, enchiladas, and a chicken chipotle chili. All of it's going in the freezer for quick meals.
- Diwali celebration and dinner with some friends on Sunday.
- Recording two interviews for Revision Path -- one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Both will probably be published in mid-January/early February.
- Brunch meeting with my business coach.
- Some GTA V, if I can squeeze it in.
Moving! Ugh. Spending tonight packing. Movers arriving Saturday afternoon. On my way to Williamsburg, Brooklyn where I moved out of 4 years ago and never expected to move back to given how the rents have changed. Once the move is in order I'm getting dumplings at Vanessa's on Bedford.
Enders Game in theaters!
That's what I'm talk'n about.
Oh man, I completely forgot it's out. Gotta see it.
Seeing Radiolab's live show in Dallas with my boo! http://www.radiolab.org/live/
They've got some pretty cool stories in their podcast. Any listeners here?
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend as well!
I stopped listening after "Yellow Rain." I can't stand Krulwich's callousness. His blog post about the Soyuz 11 disaster for NPR was not so great either.
Sorry that this is such a Debbie Downer comment! Enjoy the show :)
On Saturday, heading north to Bellingham with some old college friends to attend another old college roommate's Halloween party. I'll be going as a goth skier or crappy ninja or lazy burglar. Whatever people are resonating with at the moment.
On Sunday, I'll be crushing out some fake responsive homepage screens for a fake company. Some dude wanted to connect on Linkedin. Never met him. Now I'm gonna show him my portfolio. Fun times.
Going on a work retreat with the team. Staying at a great hotel on the beach. Should be a really great weekend.
Hope you guys all have a great weekend as well!
Sounds like everyone so far has got some fun plans, a lot of side projects getting some attention!
This evening I'm going for a few drinks at my friends new place, tomorrow is the first day off my girlfriend and I have together so will be spending some quality time. Sunday I will visit my Grandad and help him out around the house, Skype with my parents, watch some sports and keeping up my Rails learning.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Haha, I'll work on some personal projects and take my lady to a nice movie & dinner combo. Besides that, I'll watch Palmeiras game tomorrow. =D
