July 2019 Articles

Define productivity? Spending time with my family on a much-needed vacation, finishing two novels, reading a number of articles–juggling all these with keeping up with my work. But you don’t exactly need to know that. Time to reflect on the articles once again. Desktop Dining Rules: No Boiled Eggs or Tinned Fish As someone who…

June 2019 Articles

Once upon a time, there lived a person who promised not to let anything hinder her from writing, an activity that she loved so much. Well, she still loves it, there’s no doubt about that, but monsters keep getting in the way and she barely gets enough time to write yet she still writes because…

May 2019 Articles

Amassing a number of adjectives synonymous to tiring would be an exaggeration for what this month was for me but it truly was exhausting. Two big reasons: Avengers, The Big Bang Theory, and Game of Thrones have just ended and I suffered from a long and literally draining diarrhea. The 1968 Sci-Fi that Spookily Predicted…

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…

April 2019 Articles

I tried catching up on my reading and writing this month– my smartphone games were getting in the way, not to mention an old flame in the form of a Korean TV series. I seem to be fixated on a number of things lately, I wonder if it’s my age. What Happens inside a Black…

Anyway, it’s not a secret anymore that I simply adore him. Certain realizations arise when you watch a series or even a movie for several times and…

March 2019 Articles

I started March particularly well with a presentation on SVA and voices for our team’s brown bag session, a trip to Taiwan on the second week, and a system deployment for work–but technically I wasn’t the one who deployed it so let’s not delve into this.

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….

January 2019 Articles

Thirty days ago, we were just celebrating New Year and now it’s not even new anymore, unless you’re like me who thinks that tomorrow is another year, full cycle and celebrates it nonetheless, minus the extravagant dinner and fireworks. What it’s like to live in a well-governed country (BBC) There are some policies I don’t…

2018 Reading Challenge- Results

With all the changes that happened in 2018, I only managed to read 33 books, 9 of which were manga volumes–I didn’t included the other mangas I read using my MangaRock app because it was honestly tedious looking for Volume Titles in Wikipedia. Had I included all of them, had I been patient enough, I’m…
