  • I find it funny how it seems like everyone in the game is enjoying their life and having fun, even though they are going through an apocalyptic event and it’s happening right in front of them.They’re all like “shit, the castles floating, some guy from 10,000 years ago wants to kill us all, but dont…

  • A running list of things I don’t like

    Why spend loads of time writing about things you hate when you can create one mega-post and just update it as you find new things you don’t like? So A List of Things I Don’t Like To be continued…

  • When’s the perfect time to share?

    I’m trying to figure out when’s the perfect time to share that you’re going through something. Is there a perfect time? I read a lot of blog posts/tweets/instagram posts. I watch even more YouTube videos. People are constantly going through shit (it do be like that sometimes). And, like, I definitely know that “as shit…

  • Art takes a long time

    Art takes a long time

    My brain is always running at 100km/h, so any time I see artists take their time to work on their art it’s this huge wake-up call about how making things actually takes time.

  • Starting Out

    After 10 years of thinking about it (overthinking, really) I’ve finally started making a video for YouTube. As all “first” videos go, this one is about how it’s the first video I’m making.

  • Funny Books (from NYT)

    Whenever I finish a good book (it was Ready Player One this time), I find myself in a reading slump. So, I’m going to keep a list of resources to refer to when I’m looking for a new book to check out from the library. This article from the New York Times has a list…

  • Make Your Own Rules by Andrew Huang

    I was not excited when Andrew Huang announced that he would be writing a book. I’ve been online long enough to be weary of “books written by YouTubers”. But that was unfair of me. Andrew Huang has been a goldmine of awesome and entertaining videos, helpful and useful advice, as well as a very large…

  • Essentialism by Greg McKeown

    Just finished reading Essentialism by Greg McKeown. For me this was a very “front loaded” self-help book (one of my least favorite kinds). Most of the advice that the book has to offer is revealed in the introductory chapters. What fallows, then, is just a bunch of examples of how the advice can be applied…
