They say bilingual children start speaking later but when they do, they speak with fuller, richer language. Or similarly how quiet toddlers that speak later at times start off speaking with full sentences. I feel like I am multilingual in a sense. I speak academic, I speak 9-5 job life.

Title of a cool book by Jane McGonigal. Also title of this blog post, which is pretty darn cool too. If my great-grandfather didn't ask out my then-engaged-to-someone-else great-grandmother, I would not be alive. I've oft wondered about people who get divorced. Like maybe their relationship was never meant to be; but if that were … Continue reading Reality is Broken
I’m returning to Stand Up Comedy open mic tonight after a 7-year hiatus. Even if I do end up sucking (as basically all beginners do in the beginning!)...
