Homeless 19 Nov 2013
I don’t remember the particulars, the details are lost to me some 20 odd years later. But for a brief period around the time I was 17 I was homeless for 4 months.

Anger 18 Jun 2013
There is a great deal happening right now that should make people angry. But nobody is angry and frankly I find that disturbing.

Untitled Post #1 18 May 2013
I desperately want to write a blog post espousing my feelings bout being a developer, but honestly they are a dime a dozen, everyone talks about their feelings/give advice/bitch and complain about being a developer. There is no shortage of that.
Find TTC 09 May 2013
One of my favourite things about being a developer is learning new stuff. I’ve actually put some thought into it and if learning wasn’t such a big part of being a developer I would go fucking nuts and quit. Fuck that shit.
