Life at 35

May 26, 2016

It has been several years since I posted anything on this blog. Perhaps I went a little overboard with detachment. Perhaps I got lazy. Either way, I am back. I still struggle with attachment and I still have a long way to go until I can really feel like I am living a minimalist lifestyle. […]

Sneaky September

September sneaked up in me this year.  I have realized that I have not been very productive with my blogging in the past few months.  I feel a bit guilty about it, but at the same time I feel that my detachment from this blog is a result of my continued practice of, well, detachment.  […]

When I was a kid, I thought that I’d be married by 27 and have a kid by 30.  I thought my thirties would look like the picture above.  Apparently, I didn’t know much about life.  And, of course, why would I?  My world was built by my parents’ ideas, expectations, and fears.  My job […]

This year has been very important in my life.  I have been very successful in improving my living situation, my health, my relationships, and I am also finding more productive ways to spend my extra time.  I don’t think this would be possible if I was dating someone.  For the moment, I am grateful to […]
