Back to Work

I’m sitting in a tech-focused office in Stockholm, finally at the point of being unproductive in my apartment.  When I first arrived a few weeks ago everything was new, and I could easily labor for hours at home.  I still put in decent hours last week between the apartment and coffee shops, but I got …

Birthday

Today marks the 37th year of my life.  I’m sitting in a clean beige and white Scandanavian designed living room, watching heavy rain assault the streets outside, while sipping an excellent flat white (thanks to Pascal Cafe for allowing me to bring Califia Barista Blend almond milk so I don’t have to drink the tasty …

It’s been a chilly, but beautiful week here in Stockholm.  The conditions have been alternating between Fall and Spring, and that weather is something I haven’t experienced in a while.  Coming from a daily 90 degrees in Puerto Rico it’s amazing to wear a light jacket.  I’m staying in the hipster area of the city, …
