There will be time for reminiscing but this is not it. Do standby because I have another post for my 2019 Highlights. lol. Here are my projects for 2020 as the title so explicitly indicates: Puzzle: Tower of Babel The Tower of Babel has intrigued me for as long as I got hooked on Harry…

November-December 2019 Articles

November started very slowly for me then, like a whirlwind, December came and a ten-day vacation with it so here’s a long list of amazing reads. It’s long. You have been sufficiently warned. Cheers! A celebration of literature’s booziest books (BBC) This old article, 5 years old in fact, is particularly dedicated to writers and…

October 2019 Articles

I thought September was busy. I was wrong. October brought a different perspective to how busy a month could go. But you’re not here to read the old complaints about work so here I dish a number of eye-opening articles I read this month. What Depression is Really Like (Brainpickings) I am neither articulate nor…

September 2019 Articles

Let’s admit it. There are those months you think you’ll be busy only to find out that it can get busier. That’s not comforting for fresh graduates who are looking for jobs out there, I know. Eventually, they’ll face the harsh reality that ideal workplaces will remain a figment of their imagination–unless they do something…

Customer Service 101

Starting with Succulents

There are a number of articles from my old personal blog that I want to salvage and one of them is a write up on my first cacti, Fuji and Eiji. I was immensely proud of and cared so much for them–probably a little too much. Eiji didn’t survive rotting roots and Fuji…well, it got…

February 2019 Articles

Love month! The shortest month of the year just came in a whirlwind and for all we know, there are only 10 months before 2020. I better stop here, lol. Here are the articles I found sooooo informative this month: Hideaki Akaiwa Jumps Headfirst Into Tsunami Water To Save Family and Neighbors And that’s love….

December 2018 Articles

Last year’s December caught me by surprise, and lo and behold, come January, I realized my post went on without even me sufficiently greeting my readers a Happy Christmas and a blessed New Year.  And since I don’t want to be caught unaware again, I have prepared a proper list this time. NASA InSight Lander…
