Adventures in Hemingway and Geohegan

It seems to me like we cannot help but look for meaning in our lives. That is something that is hard-wired into our DNA, and I am sure there are scientist who can explain it better than I can (a look at this is found in Yuval Noah Harari’s excellent Homo Sapiens, although I think…

I did a tourism, 6! [Photo-Dump]

These are a few odds and ends photos from my first bit of tourism in Greece. I didn’t know where to put them, so here they are.      

Speedrunning is my Sportsball

I think I have mentioned before that I don’t really get sports. I can’t stress enough how much this is not for a lack of trying. I’ve tried playing sports, I’ve tried watching them, and frankly the biggest question is which of these two activities is more seemingly pointless to me. Thankfully, I have some…

The Hot Horse Sandwich

I am reasonably sure that I mentioned, somewhere around my New Year’s post, that I would at some point start blogging every other week. That starts after this post. That’s all I really wanted to say today. Well, not to make any reader think that I made them come all this way for nothing, I…

I did a tourism! part 5 [photo-dump]

Here are some more pictures from Summer 2020, this time from Thessaloniki. I didn’t get a lot of great shots here, as I spent most of my time walking around nostalgically.

S*lF-eMpLoYmEnT – The Ugly

This is the last entry in a Sergio Leone of posts on the subject of Self-employment. I have mentioned some of the virtues and vices of self-employment, and also had a nod to the internet charlatans who promote it. For this final post, I want to mention some of the straight existential dread that can…

S*lF-eMpLoYmEnT – The Bad

Inspiration for this blog comes from many places. Part of it is the pure catharsis of trying to recodify the events of my life in as comical a way as possible. Considering how awful life can be sometimes (all of it, not just my own), little actual work needs to be done. The initial inspiration…

Self Employment – a SHITpost

I did a tourism! part 4 [photo-dump]

Man, this series has no end! I really took a lot of photos this past summer. All of these are continuations from my trip to Ioannina in northern Greece.

Self employment: The Good

I realize that I am not always the best human being walking the globe. I don’t expect to be. Frankly, I done alright with my mediocrity. But there are at times moments when I realize that everyone is reacting to something and I seem to be reacting in a very different way. My first dose…

When your principles fail, part 3: a new phone.

Before we get onto the meat and potatoes of this story, let’s time travel very briefly to 2017 when I was still living in China. My phone began to act… wonky. That’s about the best description I have of what it was doing1. I couldn’t explain why, I couldn’t give you specifics as to what…

2020 as an inverse of China

2020 was a hell of a year, wasn’t it? I am sure everyone reading this had about as good a time as I had. We can look at this in a positive light – for the most part (yes, you can think of some exceptions. I know that I can) it was a very equalizing…
