34.

November 25, 2020 •

For a year that felt like time was dragging on forever, this certainly arrived a lot more quickly than I thought. I turned 34. Crazy. XD

Like I joked with a lot of my buddies on the day, I feel like I want a do-over for being 33. I want my money back. XD

All jokes aside, this year was an absolutely surreal event. If I told myself this time last year what would be happening now, I absolutely would not have believed it.

At this point, everything I had planned back in January 2020 has fallen through. I left Tokyo and got stuck out of Japan, Google Tokyo rescinded my job offer, and in the chaos, all my side project plans fell to the wayside while I had to figure out what I was going to do for 2021.

Mid-Year Update

July 31, 2020 •

I just got two notices from Apple. One was letting me know that my blog was back up on Apple News, and then that if I didn’t post anything new, it would get taken down from Apple News.

It was at this moment that I remembered I had a blog. 😅

So, it’s been a while! I hope everyone’s been doing really well. As well as is possible in the circumstances. A lot’s happened this year, hasn’t it.

My last post on this thing was at the start of this year. Back before the craziness started. It feels like I wrote that post in another life at this point. I figured I’d do a quick update on where I’m at and what I’m up to. Things certainly didn’t go the way I had planned this year. Not at all.

If you want a TL;DR: Nothing went to plan this year lol. As such, I didn’t get anywhere as much work on iComics 2 done as I wanted. But things are finally back on track, and I couldn’t be happier. 😀

33!

December 3, 2019 •

If the amount of time between blogs has been any indication, this has been one absolutely crazy year. Before I knew it, 2019 is already practically gone and I just turned 33. Absolutely crazy!

While my parents came to visit last time, I was expecting this one to be really quiet. Maybe a nice dinner with friends, but not even any cake.

But my crazy and lovely coworkers had other plans. XD

Nicky.

February 11, 2019 •

A few days ago, we had to bid farewell to a loving member of our family; our adorable little dog Nicky. Nicky’s been with us for 17 years, and although she managed to baffle vets as to how healthy she stayed the entire time, this week, old age finally caught up to her.

2018. New Beginnings.

December 31, 2018 •

I say it every year, but it boggles my mind just how quickly every year goes.

I wrote last time that 2017 was a pretty cautious one for me. I suddenly needed to find new work completely without warning, and I also learned that my health was a lot more worse than I had realised. All in all, 2017 didn’t end all that well for me, but at least I knew what the stakes were.

2018 has been an incredibly interesting set of new challenges. I moved to a country that speaks a different language to me, and I went from an extremely small company to an incredibly large one.

32.

November 20, 2018 •

So in the midst of all of the iComics work I’ve been spamming out on my blog and elsewhere, another thing happened. I turned 32. Blimey.
😅
