Symphonic Selections: Gassenhauer

Symphonic Selections

The past few weeks have been crazy for me. I’ve encountered a ton of stress and negativity offline. From my job change to encountering new environment and procedures, it’s been a really difficult period. I almost chose a gloomy Beethoven piece, but I realised I wanted something more upbeat and uplifting. It didn’t take me that long to pick out a positive piece for this month’s Symphonic Selections post. I hope you’ll enjoy this piece! I know I’m already feeling a lot happier!

Blogger Dossiers: Becca

Blogger Dossiers

I feel like I say this every month, but August has been crazy, but not so crazy to the point I’d forget about the monthly Blogger Dossiers post! I asked Becca if she’d like to be featured. Becca is a recent college grad who has been blogging for several years. I didn’t really get to know her until last year or so, but I’m glad I started following her blog. Not only is Becca a voracious reader, but she shares about her adventures with her husband, Andrew, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know her for the past year! Get to know Becca better with this post, and do follow her on Twitter and Instagram!

Things have been so crazy for me since my first volume of Recent Realities. I’ve been in this transitional stage with work, so I’ve been keeping myself busy with various tasks to prepare for my new job mentioned in the last volume of this column. The potential job change has become reality. I feel like I’ve gone through a huge whirlwind of changes from that news. I’ve also experienced some negative incidents; however, for this post, I’ll focus on the positives because I need more of that in my life. Looking back, things have been hopping for me. I find myself wanting a little vacation now, haha!

Blogger Hangout: Shayne

Blogger Hangout: Shayne

I had the opportunity to meet up with Shayne, the third blogger friend I met this year! She visited Seoul, and she stayed at the guesthouse near my place. Like I did with Thao and Holland, I helped Shayne with her itinerary and helped her get around Seoul the first couple of days. Unfortunately, I still had work, so I didn’t really get to hang out with her during the week, but we still managed to meet up quite a bit despite my horrendous 5:30am work shift.

Choosing a Mechanical Keyboard

Choosing a Mechanical Keyboard

Last year I took the time to invest in a Chromebook. This year, I invested in a mechanical keyboard. I’d been thinking about getting one for the last ten months or so. There were so many features I like about them. Turned out, it wasn’t easy choosing one, and I had to think about what I wanted. There were requirements I had that affected my decision, and I also had to do quite a bit of intensive reading and research. In the end there were five factors that determined my choice.
