Small Weir, Big Noise

The post title isn’t some weird figurative saying. It’s literal. I went to the local weir and was surprised by how much noise such a small water work makes. It was deafening enough, though not enough to cancel the noise of my thoughts. I made an impromptu short footage of the terrifying water sounds. The weir

What I Hated the Least Today 266/365: Freeedooom!!!

I put the nation in procrastination. (That’s smart, no? Did you even notice there was a nation in procrastination? Now you know! You’re welcome.) I hate YouTube. (Wait for it, the link between procrastination and YouTube will shortly manifest itself, if it’s not already clear.) So I go to YouTube to play some super focus brain

Finding Everyday Inspiration: So, You Think Your President Is the Worst?

Part of WordPress’s writing course Finding Everyday Inspiration. Yes, I’ve noticed I’ve completed the challenge already! But I can’t see how it should stop me from getting challenged even more? One of the writing tasks that I’ve done as part of the challenge was to respond to a prompt by your readers. Since I got multiple

What I Hated the Least Today 256/365: Bright New Things

What I’ve Been Up to Blogging-Wise After many dry months with an average post precipitation of one to three pieces per month, I’ve been surprised by a sudden boost in my blogging mood. (Such as the local road maintenance services are surprised by snow each year, though I live in a country where it snows

What I Hated (the Least) Today 251/365: A Week Off Meds

Due to the unforeseen circumstance of my bloody psychiatrist going on a bloody holiday, it so happened that I ran out of the meds that keep my brain from imploding. It was a fun week. One more, and I probably would have ended up behind bars, whether of prison or of a mental asylum. I

What I Hated the Least Today 185/365: The Bridge

I watch as much TV as though I were unemployed. I am self-employed, which boils down to unemployed, and I think someone should alert my boss that I should be working. Meanwhile, I’ll be sitting here watching The Bridge aka Bron/Broen. It’s a Danish/Swedish co-production series, and while a US adaptation of it exists, I can’t

What I Hated the Least Today 177/365: Sounds

Do you ever think of the sounds your home makes when it’s otherwise quiet? I don’t, unless I spend a night out of home and am confronted with an entirely different set of sounds. Moving homes a year and half ago also made me more attuned to the peculiarities of soundtracks of places, so to say. My current

What I Hated the Least Today 157/365: Optimal Tip-to-Tip Efficiency (NSFW)

*The following contains no explicit material, but sexual implications are involved.* Have you ever wondered, hypothetically, how you could jerk off the audience of a full lecture hall within a ten-minute presentation? Neither have I. Until I watched what is so far my most favourite episode of the Silicon Valley TV series. It’s a geek/tech comedy which is as funny as smart—not all

What I Hated the Least Today 150/365: Lifestyle

I’m scared of people who take a perfectly normal thing, like eating or exercising, and turn it into a whole lifestyle, so making it somewhat abnormal. The trouble is that people with a conscious lifestyle (orthodox yogis, vegetarians, non-gluten eaters, you name it) tend to spread their enlightenment like crusaders. I found myself very uplifted when

What I Hated the Least Today 126/365: Scotch and Pizza

It was Friday night and I got depressed—as do all people who don’t know what to do with themselves when they don’t have anything urgent to do at the moment. My solution to depression was classically self-destructive: I ordered pizza, poured Scotch and watched Game of Thrones. I found all of these but the Scotch
