2021: The Reflection Post

Hey there. I hope you’re having a good last day of 2021. This year felt a lot like the last, where the isolation, loneliness and general confusion of the pandemic got to me. I don’t think I went nuts or anything, but it was easy to feel like something was just off, and I don’t […]

Me at 32

Today’s my birthday, and I decided to write something for it. I’ve been purposefully avoiding writing for the last six months, mostly because I wanted to take that expectation of production off my plate.

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

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 […]

Slay the Spire vs Artifact: What is my brain is doing differently?

I’ve been playing a lot of Slay the Spire lately. I’ve found that it’s really scratched the itch for card games in a way that I never really appreciated before, and I’ve been spending a long time tinkering with how to approach different decks and challenges. Ironically, I wish I could be doing this with […]
