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. […]

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 […]

Actual Post and Updates

Again, it’s been a while since posting, almost 2 weeks, mostly due to how busy we’ve been with Maria’s MBA program starting up properly and falling into the routine of it all. I don’t think there’s actually much new to post about, so I think this post will mostly be me complaining about a plethora […]

Updating in Spurts

So I figured I’d update some information about what’s been going on. But seeing as I’m not sure all I want to say, and don’t quite feel like sitting on WordPress for a great length of time, I’m going to write this off line, update as I feel, and when it’s “done” (however I’d realize […]

Hong Kong

I’ve been doing a decently good job of keeping up to date on my little writing project, though I’m a couple of days behind at the moment. I do intend to catch up though. I did think it appropriate though to now touch on some other random things that have been going on in my […]

The Psychologies of Blogging

…or “why I suck at it.” So it’s quite late, and I’ve been tossing and turning in bed for a good while now. The issue is that I’ve been all of a sudden sick again, and it’s not been that great of an experience. I really do believe it’s due to the sudden changes in […]

Onward to Seoul, again

Which must mean that once again, our visas are about to expire. Apparently it’s gotten a lot harder than it used to since the Olympics for someone to get a F or Z visa. The F is the “foreigner in the country but looking for work” visa that would have let us stay for up […]

Onward to Seoul!

Having successfully hopped, skipped, and jumped over to Korea for the sake of sorting out our visas, I thought I’d put down some of my thoughts on the entire process and Korea in general. 1) Everything’s expensive there, basically the same price as in the US, but in won, which makes everything looks horribly expensive […]

“Your Chinese visa…”…is expired!

So we have been in the country for 54 days now; our 60 day tourist visa (“L”) will expire next Saturday. We have to leave the country by next Saturday. Although there’s actually a little give on this if you overstay your visa; apparently it’s a $40.00 per day fine, but if it’s just a […]
