2021. Slowly. But surely.

December 31, 2021 •

So another year has come to an end. I say it every time, but damn, that was fast! 🤣

2021 was a very interesting year. In stark contrast to 2020, we pretty much knew what to expect at this point, and so while we were all still bogged down for most of the year, at least had a lot more knowledge on how to be careful at this point.

I returned back to Japan in January 2021, and after spending 2020 in Perth, Tokyo was an insanely different beast in 2021.

35!

November 22, 2021 •

While last year felt like it was dragging on, this one felt like it went by in a flash! Blimey!

35. What a milestone! I can definitely no longer say I’m in my early thirties. I’m still trying to process it haha.

I had a very quiet 35th birthday. I talked to my family on voice chat, and had dinner with some Tokyo friends in the evening. All in all, it was a very lovely day.

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 I left Tokyo and got stuck out of Japan, Google Tokyo rescinded my job offer, and in the chaos, all my side project plans fell to the wayside while I had to figure out what I was going to do for 2021.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.
