Death and Taxes

1 year ago, for day 105 by Asia

Our new constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. — Benjamin Franklin, probably quoting some other dead rich dudes. Ah yes, it is that time of year again. Normally I...


First Friend

1 year ago, for day 104 by Asia

The last friend you ever have in this world, is yourself. No one ever really tells us that, and you almost learn to be ashamed of enjoying your own company. People laugh when you tell them you talk to yourself. They tell you that you need to get out more,...


Thaw

1 year ago, for day 103 by Asia

On sunny, warm days like this, the city comes alive. The apple thrums with activity, people everywhere, thriving in the sunshine after a long, cold winter. It has its downsides, no doubt, between the loud music and big crowds. But when you've been inside for so long, it's hard to...


Brainstorming

1 year ago, for day 102 by Asia

It's been a long time since I felt this way, but I'm so happy it's Friday. If I had to endure one more day, I just knew that I was going to pass out. It's a shame that it's raining since we finally reached the 60's again today, but at...


Branches

1 year ago, for day 101 by Asia

On Wednesday I had an epiphany. I am absolutely, positively, doing way too much. I went to work that morning with a frown so profound that two of my colleagues took notice. They are both women. I made a note in the back of my mind, but kept on going....


JAMStack Conf NYC 2019

1 year ago, for day 98 by Asia

Tomorrow I am going to the JamStack Conference. I thought it would be a nice change of pace to attend a small, one day conference instead of one spanning several days. I'm hoping it will help kickstart my interest in redesigning my personal website. Yet, it's kind of a bad...


For the 'Gram

1 year ago, for day 97 by Asia

It is the year 2049, and the 40th year anniversary of my graduation from my alma mater. It is a beautiful, breezy and sunshiny day in May, and I am walking the campus, reliving memories of my undergrad experience, and the friends I made there. We used to walk beneath...


She's Getting Married

1 year ago, for day 96 by Asia

Weddings are an emotional minefield. I never know what latent feelings will emerge, but today one surfaced and left me feeling out of my element. My freshman year of college, my roommate quickly became one of my closest and best friends. Though we were well on our way to adulthood...


Creative Ideas

1 year ago, for day 95 by Asia

I've been writing a lot of diary style entries lately, so I thought I'd try some brainstorming. I have a lot of creative ideas I want to do, but I haven't put them to paper, so they don't feel real. Without giving them room to breathe on the page, it's...


Nudge

1 year ago, for day 94 by Asia

It's been one of those weeks where I feel like I can barely come up for air, but I just keep piling things on myself, at work and off work. I'm not even trying to prove anything to anyone. I just keep saying yes. At some point, hopefully well before...
