What a year that was*

[vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Or rather two years. I always cringe when looking back on the shit I’ve written on social media and my websites. It’s like a never ending Blunder Years thread. It’s like awkwardly watching Talking Heads’ “Stop Making Sense” for the first time. What a sappy, tormented soul I was when I […]


Onwards and Upwards

This year is going to be a year of progress. I know of it, not because I’m wishing for some sky-fairy to make my life brilliant, but because I’ve put in quite a bit of work into making this year better than last. I’ve applied for my masters degree and I received an offer. I’m now enrolled for a […]


Still Alive

Surprise! The world didn’t end after all! Who da thunk it? Now to find something else irrational to fear.


The Final Countdown… Not.

Getting excited for a non-event, hooray! Time and Date have been nice enough to develop a quaint countdown. Especially humorous is the demo button which shows what will happen in the last three seconds; the screen shakes, whirls and then a fake 503 error (connection lost) pops up.  Naughty… I love it!


Currently procrastinating. I should be playing games. Seriously, who procrastinates from playing games?


We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about.

Discussing aspirations I rattled off my goals of becoming a highly resourceful and knowledgeable HR practitioner, a HR executive and a philanthropist. That I wanted to improve the working conditions in third world countries by establishing a foundation that educates and supplies low to nil cost alternative practices and […]



Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah. Music has a strange effect on me in that it can evoke an emotional response with greater ease than anything else. This song is one of the few that can actually get under my skin. I suppose for me, it’s because I can relate many aspects of the song to myself […]


Motivation, Procrastination and Efficiency

otivation is an odd thing. For me, it comes in powerful bursts which are normally accompanied by a white-hot interest in something. When motivated, I have an unmatched attention-span, I will be totally absorbed in what I am doing, time will pass and I won’t notice. It’s almost like obsession. The subject of my fixation […]


Heart Disease

elationships are always a difficult subject for me. I have little to no social needs, I’m psychologically independent and I don’t seek anyone for validation. I’ve never been initially attracted to any of my partners, not physically or even intellectually, as it takes a stupid amount of time to decide if I actually like them as a person, let […]
