Tomorrow, in the early evening, I fly on an airplane to Portland, Oregon. And on Sunday, I take a train from Portland to Seattle. I've never visited either of these places. I plan on documenting this trip on social media, which as of the last week or so, I've yet again embraced^.

Early this year I published a "Social Media Manifesto," a very tongue-and-cheek piece that's only goal was to assert the point: social media is stupid ∴ I will do social media all of the time.

At some point, not long after, I decided to abandon all social media (save Twitter, and occasionally Vine) in order to focus on my 'real projects'. Well, as you can see, my 'real projects' are mostly in a sad state of decay, and my avoidance of S.M. in pursuit of this greater good was a flawed, and ultimately failed crusade.

Since I've been going nuts' on my new Facebook and Snapchat and Tumblr accounts the last week or so, I haven't been any less productive^. At worst, having these outlets to be consistently creative has spurred me to rethink some old ideas and conjure up the seedlings for new ones. It's still a mishmash muck––at the moment––but I feel refreshed and hopeful in a way that I haven't in a long while.

So, with the year half over, I'm hitting the reset button: I'm getting back on the S.M. Horse^. I'm riding high and feeling low, just like I likes it. Here's all the platforms + my handles on them, broken into three categories with notes:
