I've been writing a lot about the crazy shit going on with COVID-19 so I'd like to focus on the delightfuly mundane tonight.
Georgie (cat) is splayed out on her back in front of the fire. Chillest cat ever. Straigh up, she's like Garfield #2.
Just turned on some Miles Davis.

STUCK IN A SUB-TROPICAL PARADISE

For many people, a sub-tropical getaway in Southeast Asia is a dream holiday come true. White-sand beaches, warm sun, clear water, exotic fruits, copious drinks, and the odd zip around an island on a rented scooter with no insurance or helmet. So, enter me: stuc...

Hello Kindmind,
How are you today? Are you well? Treating yourself in the kindest way possible?
I'm truly at a loss of words since shit hit the fan on 03/13/2020. The news media outlets terrified many American citizens about COVID-19, causing many to panic by bare necessities; bread, rice, water,...

Well, hi there. It's been a bit since I updated on this space. I suppose it's time to update on what's been happening. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, I'll be having my classes online until April 20th at least and only going on necessary to get necessities or run errands. I'm a homebody and germp...

The stock market is falling like a rock. Utter panic. Multiple 1,000 point drops on the DOW over the last few weeks and they're starting to feel routine. No way in hell I'm going to check my accounts.
COVID-19 is spreading like wild fire across the world. U.S. is barring flights from Europe as of...

I just got up and I'm about to go to the grocery store.
Went on a hike yesterday up the mountain down the road. Took a few trash bags with me to clean up the forest and came back down with two heaping bags full. I found an old camp in the middle of the forest that must have been abandoned decades...

There's something to be said about consistent repetition. I don't exactly know 'what' to say about it because there have been so many pithier comments on it that I shan't try. I will, however, attempt to recall one of my more favourite quotes on the subject, as said by Anthony Trollope: "A small ...

jcsteadman · about 1 month ago

A rant. I need to rant. Today I saw a giant wall go up at the back of my property. It was not my decision to have this wall, nor do I want the wall there, yet there it stands. Dividing 'my side' with the 'other side'.

It frustrates me seeing this 'Great Wall of Rayong' go up brick by brick as th...

As I rode down the small road back to the house on my pushbike, wind through my hair, sun hitting my body, and my voice belting out the lyrics to a Leon Bridges song with a smile on my face, I realised I was happy. Truly happy. Carefree happy. Not a care in the world except to get back home as s...

Today was rough. One of my coworkers, I'll call him "Chad", is pretty fun to be around a most of the time as he is basically always sarcastic or joking around. The only lame thing is when you become the brunt of one of his jokes. Like if you leave a meeting for a second, come back, and Chad has h...

Hello 2020! May you be the best year for the universe! As I enter a new decade, I want to reflect the lessons I've learnt. One thing I won't be doing is making resolutions in the normal sense. I only make long-term goals if necessary. These are some lessons I want to put out there.
