A Quick Guide to Queenstown

The plane drops not once, but twice. Passengers gasp, yelp and laugh, but I clutch the arm rest as my stomach flips like it does on a roller coaster. Never have I been on a plane this jumpy before, and the weather […]

Migrant Muse: Portland

Portland is Weird, Here’s Why

In the land of the Pacific Northwest, legal green stuff, hipsters, food carts and microbreweries, Portland is a city that’s… how shall I put it? Portland is weird, yo. Seriously. There’s a reason why the slogan “Keep Portland Weird” is […]

Life Lately :: September Musings 2017

What it Means to Be a Multipotentialite

I’ve resonated with this word, multipotentialite, for quite some time after I found out what it means. It’s a classier word for dabbler, jack of all trades, generalist or dilettante, and the opposite of niche or being an expert. Multipotentialites (or […]

Where I’ve Been


Some inspirational words to brighten your day.

  • Henry David Thoreau

    “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.”

  • Steve Jobs

    “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

  • Stephen Hawking

    “Quiet people have the loudest minds.”

  • Neale Donald Walsch

    “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

  • William Faulkner

    “Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”
