13:57 Well, it’s nearly 2pm on a Thursday and I’m taking a look at my site again. Swapped back to my previous template. I’m going to do away with the whole wordpress thing altogether once I get my new site set up. I’m building it in webflow and I suppose I’ll make it more of a showcase of skills. I […]


16:19 Here I am. Here WE are. We’re on the offensive against an invisible enemy. COVID-19 or “the Rona” or the coronavirus or “the wuhan” or whatever the hell you might want to call it has crippled the economy, devastated lives across the globe. Locally, It’s also caused a lot of problems, but somehow that’s hardly the most important news. […]

18.08.29.hello again

I’ve done what I traditionally do, I’ve gotten lost in the day-to-day. I’ve reached a point where my motivation and my skills are at a blending point. This is usually when I pay attention to this website. Also, I’ve been alerted by payment requests to continue this domain. I will obviously continue this but I just thought it would be […]

Father’s Day : 17-06-18

Now, I know it’s not appropriate to toot your own horn but from last father’s day to this one feels like a mother effing flip side! In fact I’m going to go back and see what I was doing last father’s day right now! .I have returned. Finding out what I did was slightly more complicated than anticipated… Normally I […]

HOLY CRAP! 17-06-11

Holy Crap. How did this year move by so fast! I’ve been working, filming, designing, shooting pictures, flying drones, and being a father. My child is now almost a year and a half old and I’m going on a little under 8 months of employment as a full time graphic designer/ print production specialist. This is usually the part where […]

December 2016

Okay, I’ve been busy lately! I’m moved into my new apartment. I’m now employed full time at Minuteman Press as a Graphic Designer and Print Production specialist. I couldn’t have imagined doing all of this even 6 months ago. I have a wonderful 11 month old baby who turns a year old in less than a month. I have a […]

September 2016

Welcome to September! This month seems to spark a change all over the world. Hurricane season starts in full force. The nights get significantly colder while the days scorch, at least in this part of the world. I’m trying to embrace that change myself by getting a lot more focused and taking a lot more control over the world around […]


My blogs on this website will also be my place to funnel inspiration back into my life. I work hard and I keep myself busy. Sometimes I don’t keep myself as occupied as I need to be. I occupy my time with somewhat trivial activities like looking at rocket launches or researching random topics that aren’t pushing me forward. My […]

Welcome to AdaThomp.com

I don’t blog much, partly because I don’t feel like I need to explain myself too much. I usually only do when I’m feeling like I need to catch up or I’m falling behind. This is a moment where I feel like I’ve actually caught up a good amount. I take my final exam for my summer math class today. […]

1 month after

I graduated from Virginia Western a month ago today with an Associates of Applied Science in Communication Design. I worked harder than I’ve ever worked in my life along with working day in and out at my bartending job. All while raising my little son Owen. I proved to myself that I can navigate the chaos to make something better […]
