Exciting News

danbo nature

Sometimes you have to do the scary thing. So here it is: I'm leaving Google at the end of the month. Will post more about The Plan at a later date, but for now suffice it to say I'll be working on some personal projects that I'd love to see if I could turn in to something, and exploring ...

This Week

Life No culture this week which is a shame, although I spent a lot of time wondering around London which was nice! Hung out with friends, including one who was over from Sydney which was awesome. Giving up my apartment is becoming a nightmare. Estate agents are stressful, they are around all the time and keep not giving ...

Playing with my image filters

Life Hung out with friends, made it to the gym again - not as much as "usual" but a start. Still feeling a bit worn out but I think that is stress as much as anything else. Sent off a draft of my book chapter again. Exciting! Eventually it will be the final draft, which is scary and ...

This Week

Life Still feeling a bit under the weather but so much better, really. Still trying to rehydrate and relax a bit. Went to see some apartments, met up with a school friend (I must not have seen her in 10 years! Crazy) and worked on The Secret Project some more. My parents came to London for the ...

Being an Expat

I (still) worry my life is vastly more boring now that I'm no longer an expat... but maybe returning "home" just takes some acclimatising, just as moving to a "foreign" place did. A lot of people talk about living abroad, but it's something that people don't always get around to. Time. Opportunity. Whatever. Or just because ...

:- new arrival

Life Such a dull week, I'd been feeling under the weather for a while and it hit me with a vengeance. So I spent 4 days on the sofa barely moving and feeling extremely sorry for myself! Then went to spend some time with my family for the weekend. And, get an eye test. I ordered super ...

Work vs Life


There was an article a while ago with Marissa Mayer's thoughts on work life balance. Essentially it was that long hours were fine, as long as you didn't miss out on things that would make you resent it. I try and work manageable (sustainable!) hours but sometimes my work gets prioritised over my life. And my view ...

This Week


Life Gym and brunch with a new (local!) friend, faux-husband arrived from Sydney, all too briefly, which was amazing. Made it to an event at Twitter and got to catch up with a friend, had lunch with another (and dinner to round off the week, which was lovely), and spent the weekend in Shropshire for a wedding ...

The Day I Leave The Tech Industry

red curtain

I know that this will happen, that one day I will have had enough, and I will leave. It's something I think about on a regular basis, and wonder, what will I do after? Will I move to a cheaper city and make things, consult, and hope to make ends meet? Will I retreat still ...
