Short Story: Cabin

It was like any other cold summer’s night. It was at that time between dusk and dawn, far after the sun had set. We went to the cabin like any other time. How I wished it was like any other time. How I wish that my brain didn’t try to delude me from the truth – its own way of easing the pain. I’m not really sure if it’s pain that I feel anymore, more of a lack of it; a numbing sensation, an emptiness.

Changing

We are constantly moving, changing, shifting from one shape into another. Morphing ourselves and the world around us to fit the image which we wish. It is a constant flow. Rarely do we take time to be still, stagnant, the opposite of movement, immobile, incapable of movement. Yet, stillness does not mean we are still.

Right now, I know it’s scary, you’re completely alone for the first time in your life, but that was why you did it, wasn’t it?

You wanted to conquer your fear head on – it pays off.

6 Lessons learned in 6 month in first job out of Uni

My last post, I wrote about being (one of) the only black dudes in my office. This week I wanna focus on something else. About a week ago, it was my six months mark.

I can’t believe how fast time is moving. When I was travelling on my year out of uni, I practically had no sense of time. Time did not constrain me. I booked flight when I wanted, and returned when I wanted (as long as it didn’t make my bank account bleed too much). Now that I am working, I think about time almost all the time.

Dates in the 21st Century – or rather the age of Social Media

I’ve been thinking lately (I do this a lot) about the outburst of technology and the trajectory of technology in the past twenty years. Technology has grown to become such great parts of our everyday lives that some people believe they cannot live without it. In the past hundred years, I believe that the last two or three decades has probably seen the most growth in technology advancement. Things which were only imaginable and classed as Sci-Fi, are turning into reality before our very own eyes.
