May 15, 2016 by

Summer is still weeks away, but already one can anticipate its arrival. Hot sun on warm skin. Beads of sweat form. I like what F. Scott Fitzgerald said about Summer: And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with...

I was at the gym today doing a regular workout. I pushed it too hard and was exhausted by the end of it. I got injured — pulled a hamstring. My top lesson learned: don’t go to the gym.

Friday the 13th

May 13, 2016 by

Music Impressions

Dec 20, 2015 by

The Bose QuietComfort 15s are pretty popular within my workplace (open office layout). I have a pair and love them. Bonus: As stated above, noise cancelling earphones simply operate for continuous noise like hum or buzzing. For office yak, you need sound-isolating earphones.
