Cabo

My birthday celebrations continued in Los Cabos as my friend Jeff planned a trip for our friends.  I’m not big on celebrating my birthday, so having essentially a week-long celebration was a little weird, but I’m grateful to be able to use it as an excuse to hang out with friends. As I get older …

Turning 40

Last Friday was my birthday, and it was a big one numerically.  I considered not wanting to reveal my new age in the title out of a sense of sounding old for the first time.  Age, the significance of a new decade, etc. are all constructs and arbitrary, but it’s hard to shake random beliefs …

A Month of Work

I’ve been on yet another extended hiatus from my blog.  Today (Sunday) and yesterday are the first days I haven’t worked until exhaustion on my latest trading project in the past month.  Fortunately I’m coming down from the manic work phase, and have only a moderate amount this week left to do.  I hate being …

May

Thanks to one of my new fans (M) I got some peer pressure to write this today.  It’s been a quiet week with lots of introspection.  Johanna went to Sweden to see her friends and family, and my friend/quasi-roommate Ari went to LA.  I’m in one of the largest cities in the world, so I …

This …

Happy New Year

Hello everyone, it has been a while.  I hope you all have had a beautiful transition into this new year.   I don’t do New Year’s resolutions, but I coincidentally have a strong desire to improve my life.  I got Covid at the beginning of December.  I had a strong fever and exhaustion for just a …

October Update

I’m sitting outside at a very tranquil cafe in Mexico City, Efimero Cafe, one of my favorite little spots here.  There’s plenty of bigger, trendier, fancier, cafes with coffee on par in the neighborhood, but there’s some intangibles here (perhaps the fact that the inside is so small it forces me to be outside on …

Back in Mexico City

As the title states, I arrived back in Mexico City after a few weeks in Utah, and another month in Puerto Rico.  Because I don’t tweet, use Facebook, and post perhaps twice a year on Instagram, I realized my updates are more sporadic, and large gaps in my travels are obscured now.  Why am I …
