Weekend Thoughts #7

The fall-back is here! I enjoyed my extra hour of sleep today 🙂 (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 […]

A stroke of (bad) luck…

I am, in reality, a believer Murphy’s Law. Things can go wrong, and very likely will go wrong. While I’m not a complete pessimist, I’d always assume that something will go awry at some point, and they sure did… For some odd reason, I lost my wallet today. For the first time in 20 or […]

Weekend Thoughts #6

…there goes another week. Next thing we know, it’s gonna be 2020 already! I’m starting off this weekend post with one of the songs that always reminded me of weekends growing up… I’d always hear this song on an early Sunday morning growing up. Those opening piano lines just feels calming to me, and it […]

Memoirs of C4 Comic Con

Here back home in Winnipeg, we used to look forward to our annual big convention called the C4 (stands for Central Canada Comic Con). It’s big enough to occupy the entire RBC Convention Centre’s third floor and had people coming in from all over Ontario, the Prairies and a couple of states from the south […]

Colorado Low

Thanks to that Colorado Low*, it dumped a few feet of snow in my province and together with it some crazy blowing winds that it almost sent my city in a complete halt! …and it’s only October!!! For a quick second I even thought they might suspend work because of the winds and the heavy […]

Weekend Thoughts #5

Well, that’s a wrap for this year’s New York Comic Con! (well, for me at least…) It’s still technically on-going on its 4th and last day, but here I am at the LaGuardia catching my next plane on to Toronto to fly back home. I did not expect that I’ll have so much fun that […]

NYCC Day Two: Socialize

Now that I’ve gotten my convention loot shopping (will post them later) out of the way, this is my chance to actually go around and socialize more with my convention friends and have more photos taken. My cosplay for today is Geiz (pronounced as “Gates”), the Rider from the year 2068 from Kamen Rider Zi-O. […]

NYCC Day One: Exploration

Hello, New York! Let’s roll! It’s both my first time being here in the Big Apple and it’s my very first New York Comic Con as well! The whole thing takes place for 4 days here at the Javits Center, and it’s already busy despite being a Thursday! My first stop was the Funko booth […]

Weekend Thoughts #4

All aboard the NYCC Hype Train! My flight to New York leaves on Wednesday but since I have two crazy busy weekdays ahead, I figured might as well pack as early as now. It’s been a crazy ride; since I originally wasn’t planning on going as the NY hotel prices made Anaheim look like AirBnb […]

Weekend Thoughts #3

We did some team-building activity with my IT colleagues at Activate Games yesterday. It’s been my third time there (with different groups of people) but I still find it extremely fun and challenging. My favourite games are the Super Grid, Trench, Laser and the Hide ones. I like Climb as well but I still need […]

Here’s some takeaways from a few of the sessions I’ve attended: Oops. I Guess We’re Full Stack Developers […]

Weekend Thoughts #2

ManyFest is finally over – it’s that busy time of the year for me as I help the festival through the Watch Ambassador Team for the entire weekend. It was fun overall, though I wasn’t able to see everything as we were stuck in our posts for the entire shift as opposed to least year’s […]

Welcome to Weekend Thoughts – a collection of post with small random thoughts and ramblings! Finally, I get to experience an actual long weekend!! Due to my nature of having two jobs, I usually only experience one day off every week but it’s not really much of a day off since I still do some […]
