    Today was a pretty slow day. There’s a major project happening at work right now so a lot of the time I spent today was researching the task at hand to make sure that everything will go smoothly. During my break, I played some Mahjong. I’ve been changing my strategy lately since I was on […]

  • Spending Money

    Does you ever feel guilty about spending money? While I was a student (read: living off my parents’ $$$), I didn’t really feel this way at all. However, now that I’ve had to handle my own finances, the weight of each dollar is more apparent. The odd thing about this feeling is that I’m more […]

  • Hanging Out

    The most important part about becoming closer to other people is enjoying the things that you do together. What makes hanging out with a variety of people interesting, however, is the fact that everyone enjoys different things. I was once able to become fully engrossed in a conversation about a specific game, system, or idea. […]

    I just came home from the liquor store. Now that it’s fall, the local stores are changing the beers that are stocked. Goodbye, sours. Hello, more winter-y beers. Coming home, I noticed that the maple tree on my property has nearly lost all of its leaves. Beer and leaves – the two classical signs that […]

    Just like that, 2020 is winding down to an end. My birthday passed recently (I’m now in my mid-20s), but sadly I didn’t do anything to celebrate this year. OH! After tearing through my entire place, I finally found my mahjong tiles. I had some vague notion that I left the tiles in my office, […]

    A lot hasn’t gone my way recently. I just ended up picking up two packages that were supposed to arrive two weeks ago that I’ve been obsessively checking the status of. Unfortunately, I’m expecting a lot of letter mail that has yet to arrive. There’s a letter I was expecting from one of my friends […]

  • Work Overload

    I’m definitely the type of person who likes variety in the things that I do. Recently, it feels like I’ve been basically doing the same thing non-stop. Aside from my regular job, I’ve been working on a few other software projects. Some relate to issues my friends are having that they think programming can help […]

  • Smartphones

    The fact that I use a smartphone every single day made me forget how truly foreign these things are. Recently, I bought a phone for both my grandma and my mom. While my mom has not been particularly interested in learning how to use one, my grandma has shown a lot of engagement. My grandma, […]

  • ‘Ugh’ Fields and Skipping School

    I was reading an article about ‘ugh fields‘ today. The article discusses the consequences of negative conditioning and how activities that we push back tend to get pushed back even further. The more you keep delaying something, the less you want to do it. From my own experience, I’ve noticed this type of thinking in […]

  • Learning

    For me, learning has always been a background activity; I passively end up acquiring the skills I need throughout life due to circumstance. When I was tripping with my friends recently, one particular friend has some interesting things to say about education, and learning. Her passion was learning new things, which fit nicely with the […]
