A Return to Research and Writing


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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...

The Drastic Downfall of Twitter


Note: This was originally written near the start of January 2023. My blog has gone through some changes, but this article was originally lost. I am posting it here with an updated date as it was in the Google doc I found it in. This is the pre-release share I had posted to a few friends to get feedback and is likely the final version. Ever since Elon Musk began flirting with the idea of owning...
