It’s After Midnight. Where the Hell Have I Been?

Published by under MyLife

Has it really been 3 months since my last blog post? Hell, I used to be one of the Vancouver Blogger Meetup organizers. You’d think I’d check in from time to time. I made a commitment to live in the moment a bit more in 2014, instead of reporting in — but I kind of miss these moments.

Big news update coming up in a bit, beyond the usual curatorial listing of my various writings. Stay tuned.

Re-Socialized

About six months ago, I started working out of a shared office in downtown Vancouver. Years of working from home had taken its toll; I was feeling cut off. Distracted. Stuck. So I made a change.

Change is good.

I’ve been sharing an office with the smart, capable, friendly folks who run Global Bend, Derek and Ashleigh. They’ve made me feel very welcome — part of a team again. Connected with people.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a social guy. Even when I worked from home, I had meetings at least a few times a week with clients. I’ve got various social circles I move in. And of course, there’s the love of my life. I was never truly alone.

But the core of what I do most days is writing, which by nature is an isolating kind of activity. It’s good to be around people, even if it’s just to be around people.

Thanks, people.

I like this place. They make good burritos. Hipster central in my neighbourhood.

Woken Up in the Middle of the Night

Fire alarm went off at 4:11 am. False alarm.

Damn. It’s 4:39 am now. Too late to go back to sleep. Technically, it’s a choice…
