Internet-Lite

I’m in Mendellin, Colombia for four days. I had hoped to take a break for a bit but I can’t because 1) things (potentially good things! but still things) have come up. 2) I’m behind from being sick before I came, and it taking 2 days to get here. The hotel internet is terrible. It’s really ...

Life Was sick for a few days - I knew I needed a break but I had been planning on taking it when I got to Mendellin. I guess if you really need one, your body will take one! Stopped off for a night at Toronto airport, where I got to meet a twitter friend IRL ...

Other People, and Travelling Alone

You smell really good, pretty kitty!

My friend and I have been planning a South American adventure in Santiago. I had just finalised all my flights and then she told me… she had been accepted to speak at a really awesome conference and it clashed with our plans.

March is a Whirlwind

Danbo

January and February was for me a quiet period of focused productivity. I moved the needle on a bunch of projects, and I'm excited to push them out into the world. I love these periods, but I start to worry that my life - and therefore me - is boring. I crave adventure, excitement. And so ...
