  • Year 2020, in Cool Finds

    I have been trying to ween off of social media in the last few years. I deleted my Facebook account. I tried to not use WhatsApp (but failed). I installed TikTok and had to throw my phone out of the window because TikTok was as powerful as The One Ring. Since then, I continued to […]

  • Year 2020, in Words

    I am not going to participate in the books-I-read race, because I didn’t read that many books and I don’t like to lose. 😛 So instead, I want to share the article, the speech, the book, and the blog post that changed me in 2020. 1.The Inner Game of Tennis: The Classic Guide to the […]

  • Year 2020, in Podcasts

    Summary: Last year podcasts opened doors to me. I got deeper into meditation, spirituality, and language. They gave me new tools to live life, and then, to cope with 2020. The takeaway from all the top podcasts in 2020 was “inevitability.” History is repeating itself. This saying is glib, but it is true, and very […]

  • Year 2020, Happy List

    I like to look back. There is no LinkedIn-proper reason, just nostalgia. This year, I added a “Happy List.” I think after 2020 we are permitted to be trite and cheesy in the name of universal happiness. Pardon the brags- those are intentional. Learn to Type “Colemak”I decided to type differently. I regretted it, because […]

    Something about us, from homemade soda to being a fake-rebel. Source: touchofmodern.com FIZZY WATER The best thing we have bought, has to be the DrinkMate (by a company from Ann Arbor). Nothing beats making your own soda water at home. I had to buy the machine from Taiwan, then the co2 canister from MongKok. It […]

  • Year 2004 (Bonus Track: 2003 in Retrospect)

    A friend asked me this morning, “So what things did you check off in 2003 from your “101 Things to do in Life” list? “If it has an item called “Stay alive”, then that would be the only one that would have been checked off.” I answered apathetically.
