The Passing of the Queen

For all the bad habits I’ve picked up along the way — one I’ve still managed to avoid is picking up my phone and doomscrolling either before bed or before rising. Today, that made...

Defeated by the Nap

The time is 10:45 pm, and I still haven’t published anything for today. This is, in fact, the moment I decided to just jump into the post and see where it took me as...

Home Again

As predicted, I am behind in my writing schedule. This means I’m writing today for today. I’d rather be writing today for tomorrow, but I suppose it isn’t the end of the world. The...

Living in the Real World

Booooo. BOOOO. Booooooo! This one is much less fun than yesterday’s ‘Living in an MMO‘ post. And it’s going to cost me my lead in posts, too. Probably put me behind even! Boo! Hiss!...

Semi-Hiatus

Picking Something to Learn

It’s been a while now — but every so often I get the urge to go learn something new. Sometimes related to my work, sometimes just for fun. My go-to back in the day...

Quiplash in Lockdown

The New Zealand COVID-19 related lockdown has continued on with daily case counts continuing to rise until just yesterday, with 83 new cases bringing the total then to 511. This was starting to be...

Still Sick

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet — but the COVID swab from last week came back negative, which is good news. New Zealand saw 41 new cases today, bringing us up to 148...
