Blog Training About

Hi, my name is Ty Thomas and welcome to my site👋

I'm a graduate student, an animal science researcher, a certified personal trainer, a book nerd, a social media marketer and a zettelkasten fan.

I love learning

The best part of learning is sharing what you learn with others! This is why this blog exists - to help me share new and exciting ideas that are inspired by interesting conversations, books, articles, podcasts, classes, etc.

My passion is to take disconnected and fleeting ideas and to capture them, assimilate them, and use them to build on existing concepts or to create new ones. This blog is my effort to compile the most valuable information, make it easy to consume, and offer it to those of you with a shared interest in these diverse topics! But what are those topics?

This blog encompasses topics that I find interesting, valuable, and/or necessary to living the best life possible. What I consider the best life possible is simply one that focuses on finding happiness, iterative improvement, and being a good person above all else. Always striving to be the best version of ourselves and enjoying the journey along the way is what makes life worth living.

You are here for a reason, whether it is because of one of a forwarded posts or a perfectly timed Google search, I encourage you to join me and check back on this blog often! Becoming your best self is a journey – spiritually, mentally, and physically - and we are about to set off!


Enjoying the journey

My fiancée (now wife) and I were engaged to be married in the spring of 2020 when a wild and unexpected pandemic changed things, for a lot of people, us being two of them.

The thing though, is that you can't let the curveballs of life knock you down, you need to pivot to make for an even better outcome than maybe you originally had planned.

This picture is of my wife and I as we were leaving our elopement, with a last minute (spectacular) photographer we DM'd on Instagram and our officiant who just happened to be in town that evening.

We made what could have been a frustrating and disheartening moment into something truly memorable and beautiful. These moments are what make the journey so much better than the destination.

If you enjoy my blog, you can show your support by tapping the coffee in the corner! ☕☕↘️

Notes & details
  • We're using the quote block to create the fixed navbar instead of an ID, so it should work out of the box, but that means you can't really use the Notion quote block anywhere else throughout this template. Thinking of better ways to go about this!
  • The navbar & footer are global Notion blocks, meaning if you edit the ones on the template home page, it'll carry the changes over to the rest of the site
