I’m standing in my client’s apartment feeling mildly appalled. There is a murky stench in the air — a sweet yet sick smell that reminded me of the garbage bins behind the cafeteria in elementary school. The kitchen is very…full. Dishes are piled high on both sides of the sink. The trash is overflowing. Empty […]

December 10: Necessity, they say, is the Mother of Invention. But sometimes it is engendered by a question, and sometimes it springs from mere fantasy.

Buying a home is a roller coaster ride full of stress, anxiety, happiness, and fun. Do you think spending 20 minutes in viewing a property that is soon to be a home is sufficient? According to the real estate developer Alister Toma, it takes much to consider before choosing a new home to live for […]
I think my problem was that I didn’t know I was attractive until after college. I knew regardless of this, I had a pussy and that’s all that matters. But I never saw myself as pretty until I became Diamond. When I was a kid, I was bullied more than average. Ever had […]

I began the week on Monday morning by spending more time working on the book proposal for Writing to Publication. When the session itself began in the afternoon, there weren’t many of us there (as no new content was planned to be covered), and after giving us a farewell speech and recapping the different things we’d covered throughout the semester, Calum gave me some feedback for what I’d done, telling me what needed changing. After that session, I found that my mind simply wasn’t set on work, and struggled to get much done. I briefly tried tampering with the mechanical prototype I’d made to represent synchronisation, thinking of how to tackle Adam’s request to prevent the player’s bar from snapping between the top and bottom positions when turning the stick, but I wasn’t able to get very far with it. With my mind remaining elsewhere, I also struggled to get anything done in the evening.
