Most Recently is how I have decided to qualify my answers in conversation these days. on the Road, one of the most common questions asked is “Where are you from?” and to this I have never had much of an answer—however outside America, nobody really knows the difference between Portland or Alaska or Massachusetts or really any of the places I’ve lived in-between.

Throughout the history that saw me in those places, among many others, which have now arrived me in a small town in Ireland for the past six weeks, the circumstances of my life have changed so drastically time and again that one would think I would be more accustomed to it. But being caught off guard is, I think, not something anyone can adapt to. It’s only about how one deals with it.1

…and it is slightly ironic, that not days after I’d shifted my mentality—from being in transit to temporary resident—now I am, at least for the time being, forced to shift back into my more transient nature.2

months shifted, lost into the ether; plans that only lasted 48 hours are sometimes the ones that impact for years. there is still Much To Do; I have no clue what it is or where it will be, but it’s usually worth finding out.

  • I sit down and spend hours focused on code and rebuild this website. It’s what I’ve done since I was 16; twenty years is a difficult habit to break.
  • The laws regarding visas are so dumb. I’m not going to complain about my issues with immigration shit given the concentration camps in the States, but the fact this all just has to do with capital makes it even more annoying.
