Weekend Thoughts #12

Thanks to the Watch4, it made me motivated again to do early morning weekend runs. Only managed a 4K run compared to last weekend’s 5K but that’s because I worked a day shift this weekend. I should probably sleep and wake up earlier to allocate more run time whenever I work a day weekend shift. […]

Weekend Thoughts #11

I did some more eating today – it’s the baptism party for my coworkers baby and they had a small gathering at a park in the city. Considering I just had some poutine and rollesque ice cream last night, I think I’ve had my fill of sugar for the next few days. My Watch4 somehow […]

Weekend Thoughts #10

Raise your hand if you haven’t played half of the games on your Steam game library? Guilty. And that’s about to get worse, because recently my roommate and a couple of friends at work convinced to pick up The Forest. I like horror movies so I think this is right up my alley! I’ve played […]

Training Week

Nothing too crazy this week, just attending a couple days’ training for situational awareness as I work as a frontline outreach worker part-time. To be fair, we learned a lot over the past 2 days at it wasn’t just hours and hours of slides, but we did a lot of role-playing and scenarios. I prefer […]

Something “Normal”

I’m usually a low-key person so even if today’s my birthday I wasn’t planning anything crazy, but that’s about to change! First thing in the morning I got a few beeps from my Tamagotchi and I thought that it’s just hungry and needs some feeding, but this came up. I gave them breakfast and sent […]

Expectation vs Reality

Today I had a friend over and we bought of one those cute Japanese DIY snack kits that lets us make edible miniatures of actual food. There are many variations, and we got the Donuts one. It was pretty straightforward and despite my limited Japanese I was able to read and follow the instructions at […]

With our local Covid-19 cases on a steady downward trend (knock on wood), my city has finally began allowing home visits for fully-vaccinated people. For the first time in almost forever, I got together with a few good friends at work and hung out over some pizza and Jackbox Party games and it’s most social […]

Missing Instagram Feature?

Recently, I’ve been getting story shoutouts from many of my friends on Instagram, but for some reason I am unable to return the favour. You saw that right. I would like to give my friends a spotlight on my own stories, but I am however missing the Add Post to your Story option. My friends […]

2020: First Downtime

Ain’t it funny that more often than not, spontaneous “plans” have more chances of happening than the carefully-planned ones? Just yesterday, one of my friends in our group chat came up with the idea of just chilling at a nearby coffee shop. I happened to be free tonight, so why not? We ended up spending […]

Happy Holidays!!

Early New Year’s resolution: write some more! Hope everyone’s enjoying the festive season! ๐Ÿ˜€ Finally, I found the time to write again after the crazy holiday season.

Weekend Thoughts #8

Been quite a rough month, but I’m glad November’s over and done with, and I capped it off with some Black Friday shopping! I got myself some smart-home stuff – a Philips Hue LED strip (thinking of using this for some flexible action photography lighting), a Chromecast, and a few new plane models for my […]

Weekend Thoughts #7

The fall-back is here! I enjoyed my extra hour of sleep today ๐Ÿ™‚ (I preferred the summer daylight time to stick around, but for now it is what it is.) Speaking of daylight adjustments, it’s about that time of the year now that I finally address my #1 enemy during this time – waking up […]
