  • The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Done In My Life

    My girlfriend always makes fun of me when I say that something is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Sometimes, I’ll even intentionally say it for fun, just for her to tease me a little. I commonly use this phrase in reference to activities that I’ve never done before, mostly when we […]

  • Ways of Life

    Friendships are extremely valuable to me, and I make an effort to continuously remind myself to cherish the people around me. Though we tend to surround ourselves with like-minded individuals, what I find important is the unique perspectives and experiences that they bring to the table; not only are our similarities important, but also our […]

  • 2022 New Year’s Resolution

    I’m not one to make resolutions, since I know that I likely won’t follow them. If someone wanted to make drastic changes to their life, why wait for some arbitrary date, and for some arbitrary time? To want to change your habits, there’s no time like the present. Well, today turns out to be the […]

  • Entertaining Guests

    Having people over is pretty fun, but in the words of one of my friends: “Eddie, when we’re at you’re place, the only thing we do is drink.” It’s true, I’ve invited a lot of people to my place before, but I seldom have things such as snacks or activities prepared. Even today, all I […]

  • 30 Days of Happiness

    Here’s my attempt to try and find something that makes me happy every day. 1 – 2021/08/16 – Getting praised at work when I feel like nothing but a ball of nervous energy around my senior peers. 2 – 2021/08/17 – Being lucky when I play games. Compare my mountain to the rest of the […]

  • Wingmanning

    Over the past few weeks I’ve reconnected with a few friends. I’m grateful to the people in my friend groups who have been open to hosting a handful of us at their place. Being able to reconnect and shoot the shit about the good old days have led to conversations that bring me back to […]

  • Sharing Services

    When streaming became widespread, cloud-native media companies threatened the traditional model of subscription-based cable TV by offering a service which blended both on-demand and classical subscription services into a single monthly subscription. Despite the massive amounts of disruption that companies such as Netflix spearheaded, in recent years it’s almost as though we’re regressing towards what […]

  • Giving People Rides

    One of my only joys in life is driving people. There’s just something about it that’s so relaxing to me. Some of my friends think it’s weird; I’ll drive for road trips without asking people to switch out with me, and I’m always happy to be the person picking people up or dropping people off, […]

  • Girl meets NUMBER GIRL

    The saddest moments of my life are when I discover an amazing artist… only to discover that they’ve either disbanded or are part of the 27 club. Within the past year, I discovered an amazing band called きのこ帝国, or kinokoteikoku, or Mushroom Empire. Unfortunately, they disbanded back in 2019. kinokoteikoku is a post-rock shoegazer band, […]

  • Fucking Around

    At an old company I worked at, we had a kettle that could continue to boil as long as you didn’t put the lid on and a mini-fridge what had a completely frozen freezer section (you can see the block of ice). The bosses of the start-up were in China, it was Friday, and I […]
