On Coming “Home”

Yotsuba and Danbo:Trick or Treat on Halloween

A while ago, someone introduced me to the concept of “Third Culture Kids”. "Third culture kid (TCK, 3CK) is a term used to refer to children who were raised in a culture outside of their parents’ culture for a significant part of their development years." I remember identifying with some of the aspects, of not knowing where ...

This Week

danbo tug of war

LIFE Such a hectic week. Caught up with a friend visiting from Sydney (theatre!), spent a relaxed Saturday afternoon with another friend (more theatre!). I gave a talk at iOSCon, which went well. And I had two conference proposals accepted, so that is cool. Something I wrote was pretty popular too, which is always nice. But exhausting, ...

Frankfurt, March 2014

IMG_6214

I went to Frankfurt for the Luminale, booked after I read about it on a design blog as I love light and electronics and digital art. Frankfurt isn't the liveliest of cities, but I was really happy to have a break so used the time to go for a long walk along the river (clean air!) I ...

Falling Down the Rabbit Hole

Stop peeking at me

This Week

LIFE My birthday this week, which made me angsty. So many people remembered though which was really sweet. Hung out with friends, got in some reasonable gym time. Getting the pool to myself for a while on Saturday was a highlight of my week. Not feeling very creative lately, I think it's because I've reached this really boring ...

Work trip so not much time to myself, I caught up with friends in Seattle but didn't have time to see anything, really. I stayed at The Woodmark Hotel, Yacht Club and Spa which has a great location right on the water - beautiful views. It was OK, there were a couple of things that ...

LIFE My sleep schedule was finally somewhat fixed after the long weekend, and I'm feeling so much better as a result. Got a lot of gym time in, including a double which I haven't done in ages! Although not the classes (weights, yoga) that I want to. But it's a start. Went to a friend's for ...

5 Strategies For Making Progress on Side Projects

cress keyboard

I get asked on a regular basis how I manage to maintain a blog (and other side projects) on top of my job, especially since I almost never write anything specifically about my job. I actually wish I was better at and more productive on my side-projects, but that might be step zero - to let ...
