So the purpose of the trip to New Zealand, officially, was so I could file for a visa to Australia and thus begin working once again. Unfortunately it's not possible to file from within the country, so we scooted off for a trip to Auckland. Auckland is pretty, but really slow and glacial. Given how […]
In lieu of a longer update, Adam and I left Sydney and landed in Auckland, New Zealand a couple hours ago. No matter all the traveling we've done, what amazes me is just how similar all cities look, even on opposite sides of the planet. And skyscrapers will always be a comforting sight for me. […]
Last year I bought myself a shiny Sony VAIO Z-series laptop. Adam had a similar type (the SZ, which preceded the Z), and I used to stare at it wistfully while on flights. His was both much lighter and thinner than mine as well as more portable (and the battery life was great), so I […]

In it you take control of one of six sisters, sent individually on an errand to see their sick grandmother. The game gives you the simple imperative of "Stay […]

Since I was a teenager, journals in some form have been an integral part of my composition. When I was younger I would make a habit of writing a page or two a day, at least, scribbling down the thoughts that were most important to me (which that age was usually school drama, boys, parent […]
