Week of July 29, 2019 in Summary 

I pinched a nerve in my neck this week, so I wasn’t as productive as I would have liked. I had to take a day and a half to rest. This is the second time this has happened to me, so now I’m thinking about ways I can improve my posture, work environment, and self-care. It’s still healing, so here’s a short list of my work this week.
