Hello there 👋 I am Jakob Bouchard, and uh, this is my website!
I work at Distantia as a web developer, and previously worked at Best Buy as a Geek Squad agent.
When I’m not studying or working, I’m usually chilling at home with my girlfriend, our 3 cats 🐱 and our bunny 🐰.
If you want to see the hardware and software I use, I have a uses page just for that!
What I do, other than tech stuff
If I’m not working or at school, I usually watch videos on YouTube, listen to music, or play video games. My top channels currently are Technology Connections, Tom Scott and Miziziziz, though I watch a bunch of other people too.
On the music side, in no particular order, I’ve been listening to MONTERO, the DOOM 2016 OST, Billie Eilish, Childish Gambino and Guns N’ Roses. I’m planning on creating a playlist containing my most listened songs of the month or something too.
I’m currently going through DOOM 2016 for the first time. I bought it back when it came out, but never really played through it apart from the first 3 levels. I bought a Steam Controller and decided to give it a go in DOOM, and have been playing through it since around that time. When I just want to play for 30 minutes though, I usually put on my Oculus Quest 2 and play some Beat Saber (which also compensates for my lack of physical activity hahaha).
My little family
I previously said that I had 3 cats and a bunny, so here they are!
This is Linux, though we literally always call her Lily. We adopted her when I graduated from college, a bit of a gift to myself let’s say! She’s my little baby, but she can get really annoying in the morning, or when she jumps on the table to eat our food. She’s about 6 months old now.
Here is Mew, my girlfriend’s 4 year old cat. She adopted her when she got out of high school and to say she’s the most precious thing she has would be an understatement. She’s our big girl and she basically always sleep. She took a bit of weight recently, so we’ve been trying to get her more to be more active.
This little boy is Neko, our youngest, at 2 months old. We got him when he was 2 days old from the local SPCA when my girlfriend worked there a couple of weeks ago, since he was gonna get put down due to lack of resources. We were supposed to only foster him, but we obviously fell in love with him, so we decided to keep him! He’s a fighter and a keeper.
And finally, this fluff ball is Banane, our 6 months old bunny! He’s very soft, but he’s also not particularly interesting, since he mostly just sleeps all day. We love him like that though!
