Updates / Job Stress

U

I’ll be open and honest. My year hasn’t gone according to plan thus far. I wanted to try to get a new article written every month, but the company I work for is going through a ton of growing pains resulting in an average of 50-60 hour work weeks. When I add the personal stresses of moving, health issues, and trying to help out some struggling family, that leaves very little free time...

Recent Developments / Change of Timeline

R

My past couple of months have been pretty busy overall. I have been meaning to get back into the swing of things with writing, but my free time has been decreased significantly due to factors outside of my control. Most notably, work seems to take up a large portion of my free time since I am averaging over 50 hours a week consistently. The company I work for is very generous with how they treat...

A Return to Research and Writing

A

2023 has been an interesting year for myself. In the span of a single year I managed to get back on the road, have begun the process of improving my physical health, and have also made strides in my mental health. However, through everything that has happened, it has become difficult for me to maintain a steady pace for writing. I had originally envisioned myself writing deep-dive articles on...

Drastic Changes and Self-Reflection

D

From time to time I wake up in this bedroom and think about how it all feels unreal. I am more independent than I have ever been at any point in my life. While I am living in an apartment with my brother at the moment, I own everything I have in my room and have been contributing immensely to small improvements around the apartment. I’ll reach a point over the next year or two where I will...

Sickness and a Fast Rebound

S

On Tuesday, September 19, 2023 I began to experience what I would say was a reduction in energy in the second half of the day that was greater than usual. It was a work-from-home day and I did exercise on that day, so I didn’t think too much of it. The following day (Wednesday), I ended up going to work and had what I think was a rather productive day. Towards the second half of that work...

My Experience With Google Fi

M

In April of 2015, Google began offering a cell phone plan alongside their own brand of cell phones for those looking for a low-cost alternative to the major carriers. Google leveraged it’s place in the mobile ecosystem as well as their size as a major tech company to create some advantageous deals. In July of 2017 I had gotten sick and tired of Verizon Wireless and wanted something cheaper...

Update on Keto: September 2023

U

While we’re in the middle of September 2023, I figured I would give a quick update on how things have been going lately. Since moving into the apartment and getting settled, I have had plenty of time to streamline things within my daily schedule. Basic Cleaning / Daily Chores One thing I made a point to implement was a loose schedule on cleaning things up based on the state of things in the...

Settling in a New Apartment

S

I recently moved into a new apartment with my younger brother. The idea is to be able to split the bills and make things a lot more comfortable. We’re both at a point in our lives where that’s a pretty convenient way to live, and know how to keep things pretty drama-free. Our apartment is an older one, but I personally know some of the people involved in the maintenance at the...

A Month in Retrospect: Back on Keto

A

I made a decision on July 3rd to return back to a ketogenic diet. A bit over a year before the pandemic started I had gotten into a health kick and had managed to lose around 85 lbs. Once COVID started rearing its head, I had fallen off the wagon in more than one way. Upon starting this journey, I was seeing myself at around 315 lbs. I’ll be the first to admit that is the heaviest I have...

New Blog / Infrastructure

N

Been enjoying some time off from work over the past few days and decided to do both some spring cleaning, and a revamp of my infrastructure. Over the past few years I have been struggling with my physical and mental health in a way that caused me to do things quickly and sometimes not quite correctly. Rather than backing things up from a blog that was only half-finished, I decided to wipe...
