Restaurant Review: Aquavit Bistro

So I’m thinking of starting a new series of posts to go along with Maria and I’s exploration of the many varied restaurant options in New York City. We’ve always loved food, perhaps think of ourselves as foodies, and it was just Restaurant Week. I’ve also always felt like I may have missed out on […]

1st Trip to Ikea, Brooklyn

So what with trying to find a new apartment and all, and said apartments being most likely studios, and not that there’s anything wrong with that because we like studios, because we don’t like superfluous interior walls, because we like, large (or rather not too large), open spaces, because we prefer small but well laid […]

2nd Post of 2011

Yes, I know, it’s almost the end of the first MONTH but I’ve been busy. The majority of that time was spent interviewing with companies for a job. I signed up with a tech recruiting agency, two of them actually, though in reality, one still. It’s weird. I ran into something like this before back […]

How to ship boxes from China to the US

This is incidentally also “Countdown once again – 2 Days.” So we had originally been planning to take all our stuff with us on this move back. When we first made the move over some year and a half ago, we managed to fit into 8 suitcases, including carry-ons. We had a little trouble with […]

Countdown once again – 4 Days

It’s that time of year again, or rather that time of the year and a half. We are counting down the days until we leave. I guess we hadn’t formally announced any such things yet, and though the rest of the inter-webs know already, the blog is sadly still officially ignorant of certain important matters. […]

Shanghai December 2010

And as I had alluded to 2 posts ago now, even more things happened and one of them was that Maria and I got to go to Shanghai together finally! I had only been there once before in my entire life, and I’m not sure it counts seeing as it probably happened about 15 years […]

Updating on the train

Huh, apparently I have 4 WordPress Plugins to update, plus a new Core version to upgrade to. Since I’m connected to the internet through my cell phone’s tether through my VPN in the States, I’m thinking I’m gonna hold off on any major internet work that’s actually important and meaningful until later. I’ll be back […]

Looking for a new project

I think I need someone to count on me again. While Maria was away, there was purpose in the music project I recorded for her, something she waited for, something I knew she’d be disappointed if I didn’t do. It was important, though only because I deemed it so. And though now I have lots […]
