Just a quick life update about hockey, work, relationship stuff, and traveling! Think about it as that one overloaded, poorly-written filler anime episode where nothing makes sense. Then again, it is my life, so, it often doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. That ain’t changin’. Anyway, I got my coffee here so let’s get chattin’! HCKY HCKY LIFE HCKY The live-post monster returns. I have two teams, but for now, I will be referring to the Kings. Mah boys are back with a new third jersey…Continue Reading “Life 25/8: Hockey, Work, Love, & Travels”

I’ve had my share of domestic and international travel. Some activity or event filled every waking moment. It’s exciting to explore and take advantage of the time you have in a new “world,” but it can also be overwhelming while you’re on vacation for whatever the reason. Little Things I come from a family who liked to capitalize to “grandeur” events. Long, expensive vacations. History-book tourist traps. Things that make much less fortunate people go, “I wish I could afford to do that.” I became one of those “less…Continue Reading “A Weekender: The Do-Nothing Vacation”

Apologies! I have been stupid busy with life—work, being sick (twice), prepping for potentially significant life changes (which has proven to be a lot more difficult than I had projected). I haven’t been able to catch broadcasts for hockey games I’m not in attendance, nonetheless keeping up-to-date via Twitter. Lately, when I get home, I crash like an old lady, or I’m working on freelance and personal projects until two in the morning. If I’m feeling burnt-out, I stream a PS4 game (as my friends…Continue Reading “Live with a Side of OMFG”

First and foremost… Yay, the Pens won their opening night against the Stanley Cup Champs! Amazing fucking job, Letang! My boi! Much respect to the Caps though, primarily Ovie.

It’s funny how traveling almost turns you into a different person, for better or worse—nonetheless travel planning. Despite my flexibility to be spontaneous, there are certain things that I make lists for. Traveling is number one and then there is grocery shopping, followed by the lists I make at work. Google Keep? Didn’t really care much for its existence so much that I removed it from my Chromebook. (Yes, I have a Chromebook, it’s great). Now here I am making lists up the ass for my…Continue Reading “24 Days ‘Til Vancouver | Other Vacay Plans?!”

Interestingly, while I was preparing on what to pack for my trip up to Vancouver for the Nucks v Pens game, making my task lists and all that Type-A personality nonsense, it hit me:   Wait—I’m not traveling to a city in California. … I haven’t checked the weather up there. I should prooooobably do that.   … We aren’t in Kansas anymore, Toto. Ah, right. I actually need to wear boots and boot socks, stock up on layers, and all that waterproof goodness. A…Continue Reading “A Month Out”
