After abandoning blogging a few years ago, I’ve fallen out of the “web-design” loop. WordPress has changed their entire setup with the block editing. It’s nice and I wish they would have done it five years but I’m totally clueless on how to get it to work. Maybe I’ve become too used to automated designsContinue reading “August 25./”

As I drove home from the grocer, “City Lights” played through my car speakers. Wind whipped through the open windows and filled the song with a cool static. The car seemed to drive itself. My hand gently stretched out grabbed at nothing. To the left, a truck creeped by and added an ugly rumble. ItsContinue reading “August 21./”

Essay./ in the name of anonymity

I’ve heard it said that to speak with a pseudonym is cowardly. To create without your name is dishonorable. I’ve been told that we should be responsible for what we say. That we should attributable for the impact that our work causes. I don’t think that there’s dishonor in wanting to remain anonymous. We holdContinue reading “Essay./ in the name of anonymity”

Day two of class! Everything goes smooth. Glad to have busted out the headphones. I feel more like myself listening to music. I know that I’m talking into the void but if anyone wants to talk music, I’m always down. I randomly found this indie running playlist and it’s actually good. Indie music became allContinue reading “August 18./”

First day of class is finished! With how busy I’ve been planning this move, I haven’t really spent time meeting new people. It was pretty cool to meet others from around the country – even if it was only online. Not much else to report. I’ve been listening to post-punk today for the first timeContinue reading “August 17./”

Sitting at the HNL airport, it’s finally starting to dawn on me that I’m leaving. I’ve been go go go for so long preparing for the move that I haven’t really felt sad about moving. Today I drove the North shore coast to Kaneohe. The weather has been perfect and my entire left side ofContinue reading “August 14./”

It’s strange – today was my last full day living in Hawaii. It’s been five years since I arrived. I’ve thought about what to write tonight but I keep coming up short. There isn’t a way to capture this much of my life in an eloquent post. I’ll write what I can. When I arrived,Continue reading “August 13./”

Well, I’m official without a home now! I had my move-out inspection this morning. Funny to think that I’ve been stressed for the last few weeks about it. I paid for a cleaner and I was still nervous that I’d have a crazy person inspecting my window sills for dust. Oh well, I tend toContinue reading “August 11./”

It’s strange that in a few days, I’ll no longer live in Hawaii. This place has become my home. I remember the way the island smelled when I first stepped off the plane. The air was thick and it smelled like the ocean. It was almost exactly five years ago. Now I sit in myContinue reading “August 10./”
