What I Hated the Least Today 261/365: MS Paint and the Practice of Ensō

Recently I noticed a huge discussion sparkled about MS Paint, which was announced to be retired but the decision was promptly withdrawn because people are sentimental about it and not ready to let it go yet. I’m pretty unsentimental and don’t give a shit. But—this was the first app (then called programme) that I ever used

What I Hated the Least Today 199/365: Socksies

I know, I’m weird with my diminutives. I have socksies, shoesies, panties and whatnotsies. On my defence, it’s perfectly normal in my mother tongue to diminutivise what you hate the least.

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 125/365: Yoga Block What Again?

My yesterday’s post about a yoga block received a bunch of great and greatly amusing comments, which prompted me to revisit the topic for a follow-up with clarifications and answers to pressing questions which I didn’t even realise my post posed. While I assumed that the existence of yoga blocks was generally known and acknowledged,
