    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

    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 […]

    Finding inspiration in games: Adieu, Persona 5

    Warning: there’s some heavy spoilers of the mid-to-end game of Persona 5 here. If you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read. I finished Persona 5 a couple days ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The games in the Persona series have a reputation of leaving something mental with you when you’re done, and I think […]

    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

    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 […]

    The KonMari method and absolving backlog guilt

    Over the last week I’ve been reading Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing [affiliate link], and slowly digesting her “KonMari” method. It’s been pretty eye-opening in terms of changing some habits and jolting me into new ways of thinking. I’ve always considered myself a pretty messy […]

    #WorldMentalHealthDay – My journey with medication

    I’ve been on medication for anxiety and depression for two years. It’s a day too late to talk about it on World Mental Health Day, but I figured, hey, why not. In that two years, I’ve been fighting for balance — balance between my brain chemistry and what I’m introducing to it in order to […]

    Building blisters: six weeks of personal training

    After years of failing at fitness, I decided in August that I was going to get a personal trainer. I had a couple months to kill of just doing nothing while looking for an apartment and working, so I figured I’d jump on the investment and actually try to make the time worth it. Previously, […]

    Freebie content plan: Turning your journey into a narrative

    A couple years ago I had a project called BetterDota; basically, it was an idea I concocted to make my journey to get better at Dota 2 into a narrative more palatable to an audience. It was an answer to a pretty simple question: “as someone who isn’t good at Dota 2, how do I […]

    Ebook #4: Event Content Planning in Esports

    A couple years ago, I was frustrated at people making mistakes. I turned this frustration into three ebooks about Twitter. Now, four years later, I’ve written a fourth ebook, but not about social media — this one looks to help you get better at planning content. This book was written to help people who want […]
