Existential Ergonomics, Redefined

When I started this blog, it was meant as an exploration of the field of human factors engineering, the optimization of thoughts and habits, realization through the art of storytelling, and the space of overlap. In essence, existential ergonomic is the study of how we can design and refine our environment, habits, thoughts, and tools... Continue Reading →

How are you doing, really? 2020 has been a rough year, almost universally. What have you been up to lately? How much has your life changed over the last few months and, perhaps more importantly, has the change in lifestyle revealed a new set of priorities that you hope to carry into post-quarantine life?

Hey there! How has the week been to you? Mine has been rough. I need to keep reminding myself that the symptoms are part of the body's healing process. After five years of mostly-normal labs, my body is finally pulling out of low-energy mode thanks to an overload of once-deficient minerals and my labs are... Continue Reading →

Hello! How is your week going? I've had a long. uneventful week at work, so I'm excited to step back and enjoy a bit of me-time. Bonus: three-day holiday weekend! What are you up to this weekend? I'm hoping to catch up with my parents and maybe a friend, but mostly I'm craving a few... Continue Reading →

Hey there! How is your week going? It's hard to believe that September is just around the corner. My recent (and ungodly expensive!) brain MRI revealed that the pituitary adenoma has grown over the last year. Fortunately, this type of tumor is nearly always benign. Since I've generally been feeling better, I'm not going to... Continue Reading →

Hi there! How is your week going? This week flew by in a flash and, quite frankly, I couldn't tell you what I've been up to. Last week, my phone got stuck in a reboot loop, so I lost everything. While it sucks, I am vehemently against storing all of my personal contacts and photos... Continue Reading →

Howdy! How has the week been to you? Phoenix received the first mini-monsoon of the season, bringing with it more humidity than actual precipitation. I learned that the Sonoran Desert, in which Phoenix resides, is the greenest and most lust desert on Earth and technically only qualifies as a desert during our driest years. I... Continue Reading →

Today Is Not The Final Product

Time rages like a river, rushing by, offering momentary glimpses into the truth of reality. The days pass by in steady succession, marching towards some yet-unknown destination. I have spent the last several years coasting along the ebb and flow of some evasive ailment. I've spent portions of the journey violently kicking and other stretches... Continue Reading →

Hi, internet friend! How is life treating you? Over the last week: my phone broke, the water heater broke, I was referred to a toxicologist for mercury poisoning, my valley fever titers spiked (suggesting repeat dissemination), we've decided to handle mold remidation ourselves, I went to an Apollo moon landing party, I saw Myazaki's My...

Why, hello there! How has the week been to you? Phoenix has been hitting 115 the last few days, which has been miserable. I saw my boyfriend's all-time favorite movie, UFH, for the first time, after six years of hearing, "How am I even dating you?!" It was great! The results of our mold sample are... Continue Reading →

Hello, you lovely people, and Happy Independence Day to those in the US! How has the week found you? I've been violently oscillating between excited and exhausted. After discovering black mold, we spent an insufferable week at my in-law's house and then returned home to the infestation, where we're now debating whether to remodel or... Continue Reading →

Hello, friends! How has the week found you? Mine has been quite interesting, bringing with it a diagnosis of mercury poisoning, the discovery of black mold in our home, dinner with my aunt, and a generous gift from my grandparents to help with the overwhelming medical expenses. I finished reading Chloe Benjamin's The Immortalists and... Continue Reading →

Hey there, my internet friends! How has your week been? My last two weeks have been brimming over with wonder and joy, as I took a break from everything to explore the dreamy Pacific Northwest with my best friend. It was probably the best week of my life!
