I suspect my bad habit of interrupting people while they’re talking is something that I picked up or at least got worse while in China. I notice Chinese people doing it very often during conversations in which I’m participating.
Fun slo-mo video of milk being poured into tea. Yes, I put milk in my tea, but only lower quality black tea. Also 🍯
I don’t think this is entirely accurate, but it’s hilarious. >Hitler Reacts To Nonduality / Enlightenment - FUNNY! - YouTube
Maybe my greatest cat photo so far. It did pretty well on Instagram at the time. It was also one of my first times using Portrait Mode on my 7 Plus and I was blown away.
The only things I really want this year from Apple are a search bar in Files when saving or moving a file, and an app drawer so I can have apps on my phone I use occasionally without having to see them constantly. Please~~~ 🙏🏻
Returned recently from a semi-pilgrimage out in the Tibetan Kham region, out in way western Sichuan. Now that I have recovered from whatever it was in Kangding that destroyed my digestion for the past week, it is time to sift through all the photos I took. So many photos…
Had an amazing time tonight listening to Ryder Carroll speak about the Bullet Journal here in Beijing. If anyone has the chance to listen to him speak, I highly highly highly recommend you do. His book, The Bullet Journal Method, is also fantastic.
Despite their marketing and claims otherwise, simple things like being unable to type in the name of a folder when moving a file in Files.app has convinced me nobody developing iOS actually uses iOS exclusively for work.
The power plays Chinese women make with their partners border on the absurd. I just saw a woman try to get her boyfriend to re-tie her shoe because the shoestring wasn’t even. And he did it.
Taken near the back of Gyeongbokgung in Seoul over a year ago. The more I visit, the more I enjoy it. It has nothing to do with knowing about the city, it’s more that I just find Seoul to be very livable.
One of the more horrible things about consumerism is that it takes our curiosity and desire to be “better” (however an individual defines that) and capitalizes on it by packaging something up and saying that thing will satisfy both of those impulses.
I think this is doubly horrible because it not only takes advantage of a beautiful human impulse, but anyone who discovers the deceit can’t help but become overcome by cynicism.
Thinking of starting a microcast that’s just me rambling for ten minutes about my anxieties concerning my future. Working title is “Still Figuring It Out.”
