  • Have You Heard of The Burn?

    I asked our favourite neighborhood chat AI for advice on attending Burning Man as I’m going this fall for the first time ever. Of course, they’re kind of repetitive, but I’m a bit SQUEE about the whole thing so I included it ALL. #OMGOMGOMG Burning Man is an annual event that takes place in Black […]

    Sometimes the anxiety or depression becomes so overwhelming that you need coping strategies but you forgot those coping strategies and so, similar to the joyous list, here are the coping strategies. In case you forget. In case I forget. In case we forget.

  • A Few of My Favourite Things

    It is important not only to do self care like eating healthy and exercise and good sleep but to have moments of joy throughout your life. I often forget that. Especially today. So. I’m writing this to remind myself when I need to remind myself.

  • Yes, But What Is Temporal?

    It’s the company I work for now. It’s also the project / product the company builds. It’s also relating to worldly as opposed to spiritual affairs. It’s secular. It’s also relating to time.

  • The Ten Day Work Trip

    [COVID Day Five Hundred Seventy] I finally packed. The day of the flight. And I made the flight.

  • Still Coughing

    [COVID Day Five Hundred Sixty Five] That’s it. That’s the whole post.

  • Wait, what?

    [COVID Day Five Hundred Sixty Four] Last night as I was falling asleep, I was coughing, like ya do, and instead of chilling out as I fell asleep, it just kept getting worse. Until I threw up. A lot. “Ah, okay, sicker then I thought.” #Noted Except now I’m working in America where you cannot […]

  • Dear Future Self

    [Dutch Lock Down Day Five Hundred Fifty Eight] #DontPanic You just signed up for a ONE YEAR gym membership in America that costs SIX TIMES MORE each month than your gym membership in the Netherlands.
