Now

Hi, I'm Sean Reiser, This is What I'm Doing Now.

This is a now page, inspired by Derek Sivers’ Now Page Movement. Below you can find what's currently going on with me and what I'm working on.  You should think about putting one on your site.  Enjoy!

  • I am living in Flushing, Queens, with Anne and our cat, Frosty in our co-op.  The pandemic still has us home more than normal. 
  • Much earlier in the year I had Covid and as part of my recovery, I'm trying to get a 30-60 min walk in daily.  Yes, I'm wearing a mask, maintaining distance, and trying to go out when folks are less likely to be around.  I'm trying to balance keeping myself safe from reinfection, keeping my immune system strong and rebuilding my respiratory system.  Vitamin D and some sort of exercise is good for both the immune system and mental health
  • Trying to find ways to get in touch with my gratitude through prayer and meditation.  So much has been upside down for everyone.  I often resist "new normalcy" since it implies that we can never return to "old normalcy".
  • Planning on upgrading this site to Drupal 9 and make other behind the scenes changes.  I'm not planning on any design changes (I'm pretty happy where the site is) so this shouldn't really effect your experience.  You can learn about what I'm planning and follow my progress.
  • Professionally, I'm still doing Freelance Drupal work, but things have been chaotic: 
    • I have lost some clients due to the pandemic, so I'm spending time looking for new clients or a new long-term gig.  If you think you have something for me to do, drop me a line.
    • I'm doing some work for an Indian firm, working their issue queue  Honestly, this gig isn't fulfilling nor well-paying, the hours are inconvenient (I'm working Indian hours) but it slows the rate that I have to dip into savings until things start to get back to normal.
    • I am working on trying to publicize my upgrade to Drupal 9 service.
  • Because of the pandemic my photography has been dormant for months.  I picked up a lighting tent and will start photographing items that are in my apartment next.  (A statue of a Dalek, books, etc) in an attempt to better learn product photography.
  • I'm watching the following TV shows:
    • Anne and I have been watching "NeXT" which has been fairly interesting, if I allow myself not to over analyze the tech and just enjoy the adventure.
    • Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 is airing; I'm seeing it as it airs.
    • Hunters
    • The Crown - Season 4
  • I'm reading the following books:
  • I'm listening to the following podcasts:
