jovial


it wasn’t that i disagreed with it, but being in an environment where compliments are far too often used as a tactic on the unsuspecting, it certainly stopped me in my tracks.

it’s not everyday someone freely dishes out an adjective that so accurately characterizes you in a manner that, just hearing it, reminds you and reassures you that you actually just might be that person you’ve always been.  you could even say it only happens once in a blue moon.

anyway, in a time when i would, more often than not, identify and describe myself with its antonyms, it was a refreshing surprise.

thanks friend.


reckless consumer


many of you already know this but for those of you who don’t… riding a shopping cart down the parkade ramp at costco #552 is my absolute favourite thing to do in vancouver.

i not very good at it… like.. i can really only go about 5 metres without running into one of the walls… but look what i found: this.

thanks internet.  muha-haha. :)


what do i have to offer


What do I have to offer?
You didn’t offer me anything.
This is my next project.

Over the past few years my focus has been on skill acquisition and mastery. Haven’t really had a game plan other than first identifying a hole in my life and filling it with something new that would challenge me and would hopefully benefit me in some kind of serendipitous way.

‘Things always work out’ has been my motto forever. But this isn’t necessarily true anymore.

Things need triggers. People need to be pushed.

ohhh that’s soo hard for me to type out. I don’t believe that at all. I know things will work out. They always work out!!

People do need to take risks. Me. I’ve taken managed risks. That’s my thing. Baby steps. Micro assessments. And such.

But I’m doubting myself lately.


no right answer


over the last few years i’ve changed.

i’ve kept some things fairly constant (my job, my home) but for the most part i’ve been starting, stopping, trying, fiddling, and tweaking things.

major shit has happened (dad’s heart attack then stroke, grandpa’s cancer, grandma’s passing away, and more…)

i’ve worked on big projects… i’ve travelled.

i’ve learned about a new industries:  video games.

i’ve grown a beard, bought a hat, joined a softball team.

i’ve had ups and downs in relationships and even cut friends from my life.

i’ve read books, attended dozens of concerts, and even started to gain an understanding and appreciation for music created before i was.

i’m not optimistic by default as i once was.  i know shit sucks now.  but i kinda like knowing that.
