  • Me at 31: more reflections

    Me at 31: more reflections

    Last year I wrote something on my birthday for turning 30, and today I turn 31. Looking back at that post, I’m happy that I haven’t made any huge changes, but I figured I should at least update how things have been going.

  • I did my first esports lecture!

    I did my first esports lecture!

    I’ve done my fair share of speaking about esports, but never in a class setting before. When I found out that my alma matter had an esports class (not just like, one week of study), I jumped at the chance to email the prof and see if they could put my experience to use. Literally, […]

  • 2019: The Reflection Post

    2019: The Reflection Post

    It’s hard to start this kind of post without the usual cliches; 2019 was a bit of a year of growth and getting to know myself, and I’ll say that I probably ended up in the positive when it comes to me as a person, even though I don’t feel it at the moment. In […]

  • Taking up space: my trip to Japan

    Taking up space: my trip to Japan

    I’ve been putting off writing something about my Japan trip, mostly because it’s hard to know exactly where to start. This probably won’t be the only thing I write about it, but I feel it’s the most important thing for me to commit to a post.

  • Me at 30: some advice

    Me at 30: some advice

    I wanted to some writing to expand on a tweet that I made yesterday that had some advice for people that might want it. My own qualifications aren’t that impressive; all I can say is that I’ve survived to 30 working in the game industry, and that therapy and massive amounts of introspection have caused […]

  • 2018: The Reflection Post

    2018: The Reflection Post

    I figured it was time to do my 2018 wrap-up post, mostly because I like writing about this kind of thing. I tend to be big on reflecting over time, and the end of the year is a good enough time to do so. This year I learned a lot about myself — and well, […]

  • 2017: The Reflection Post

    2017: The Reflection Post

    I think every writer has a voice in their head that tells them to write a New Year’s resolution/reflection blog. It allows them to be a bit reflective and nudge a little narcissism at the same time. So, if you’ll indulge me a tiny bit… If we cling onto yesterday, what can we hope to […]

  • There is never a good time to start

    There is never a good time to start

    At the beginning of November, I moved to a new apartment. Unfortunately, a lot has gone wrong with that. Deliveries and installations being late sucked, but all of that stuff kind of passes with time. Since my second week (so I guess six out of the eight weeks I’ve lived here so far) I’ve been […]

  • Moving Day

    Moving Day

    Today is moving day. I’m taking a little bit of a break from frantically packing in order to write this blog. I was primarily going to reflect on where I was when I moved back to my parents’ house vs where I am now, and it kind of ties in with something else that happened […]

  • Support networks: some thoughts on finding and maintaining them

    Support networks: some thoughts on finding and maintaining them

    I was struggling to find a blog topic for today but thanks to a friend (shoutouts to Ria!) I settled on talking about support networks. Ironically, Ria is a large part of my support network; she’s someone I can trust to both listen and give advice. When dealing with new challenges it’s pretty simple to […]
