I’ve Put My University Studies On Pause

I decided to reduce my study load after just one semester at uni. I was only doing three units but was continually struggling. In retrospect, this had a lot to do with still having migraines and having impaired cognitive function. I didn’t follow through with that decision. It would have required a lot of mucking around with […]

I believed that the products no longer resonated with my work, and was questioning whether I wanted to continue working in the […]

Launch Watch – The Accidental Success Story

I created Launch Watch on a whim. I’d just gotten a phone call saying my cat had a 50% chance of pulling through an operation. I couldn’t stop crying so bought the domain name, migrated some content over and started working on it. Yesterday I hit 1000 visitors/month. Not bad for something I squeeze in […]

Selective Eating Disorder

I’m a fussy eater. I remember once when a friend felt embarrassed because he didn’t eat onion. I laughed and explained that it is easier for me to list the foods I do eat, rather than the foods I don’t eat. I’m writing this post because it’s something that most people don’t talk about. I’ve […]
