I’ve had a desire for a while to get back into blogging. For several reasons… The act of maintaining a website is enjoyable for me. I need a place to get my thoughts, feelings, and opinions out. I want to feel heard and connected to people. (It goes without saying that I will do my […]
On 27/5/2019 I started my first official class at a new dojo. The last time I practiced was sometime in 2014. I was never graded in aikido before, and very frustrated because I couldn’t perform a roll. Hopefully my new sensei can help me achieve this action. Anyway, returning to the mat was, no kidding, […]

Get my membership with AWIA. (If they ever open up registrations again!!!) Have a competent understanding of Angular.js and/or React.js. Film/produce […]

I did a good deed for an elderly man on Tuesday. But I’m not just here to brag about this. He was confused and barely spoke English. I helped him find his way to the train replacement bus, and get off at the right stop, and he was extremely grateful for this simple act. Because […]
