It has been A WEEK! [The Bulletin - 8th June, 2024]

The Bulletin
for 8th June, 2024


It has certainly been quite the week. Chaotic, busy, stressful, you name it -- I've probably experienced that feeling. But all-in-all, I think it was a fairly good week. At least for the most part.

We unfortunately had to pack up early due to inclement weather from the Cambridge Valley Balloon Festival (we weren't the only ones!), but not to worry, there are two more (smaller) events you can catch my mom at. Those are below in the usual spot.

As for me, I've been fielding emails and texts and everything in between pretty much all week, so I'm feeling kind of out-of-whack. Going to send this off and get a little bit of rest. Here's hoping I feel better tomorrow!

Going to be watching WWDC24 with Adam, so that'll be a blast! Looking forward to it! We watched the 7th May event (iPad Air/Pro/Apple Pencil Pro) together, so we're continuing the tradition by watching Dub Dub together too. I'm so excited!! :D

Anyways, on to your Bulletin for this week...

Upcoming Events

On 15th June, my mom will be at the Schaghticoke Strawberry Festival at the Fairgrounds from 10am-3pm. This one's a shorter event, so keep that in mind. Barring anything else, I should be attending this event with my mom. However, you should still stop by if you're in the area!

On 22nd June, my mom will be at the Vermont Paws & Boots 2nd Annual Fundraiser event from 10am-4pm. Similarly to the last one, I can't confirm whether or not I'll be able to attend this one yet or not, so stay tuned. But if you're in the area, stop by 89 Colgate Heights (Camelot Village), Bennington, VT, and help support an important group's mission on that Saturday!

There are no events on the 29th or 30th of June. There are events coming up in July, which will be included in a future Bulletin.

That's all I have for you this week. I know it was somewhat shorter than usual, but to be honest, it was a fairly quiet week! I like the quiet, though!

The Bulletinfor 15th June, 2024 Hey y'all, WWDC 2024 was filled to the top with some insane announcements that I wasn't expecting. But importantly, I got a ton worked on this week. I think you'll be seeing some stuff from me soon... what that is, I can't tell you yet, but get excited! It's worth the wait! Promise. Other than that, I might go back to Android, but that's a conversation for another time. (Adam might kill me, but it's fine.) Anyways, I love quiet and because it has been quiet...
