About the Blog

Get out.  I need to go to my mind palace.

A so-called memory technique used by folks the world over. Unlike Sherlock, whose mind holds enough to fill a palace, my mind is filled with all sorts of rubbish (another nod to Sherlock…can you tell I’m a fan?) that I have to put it all down in a blog.

I started this blog a while back, when I first started college to document the supposed “best four years of my life.” Little did I know that I would effectively get done with college in three years and spend a final semester abroad. Oh how your 4 year plan changes! Lucky for me, abouts when I hit 20 I realized that life is all about changes…they’re unstoppable so one must adapt all while keeping a chipper smile on.

So this blog, it’s my mind palace of sorts from 2008 and beyond. I 100% guarantee that it’s random and probably quite a dull read indeed. Much like my mind works in real life, my blog bounces back and forth and sideways from serious topics to music lyrics to what colour I should paint the walls in my apartment. I think about cuddly baby animals, ways to escape from any room in case of a fire, and what colour post-it flags I need to purchase. Lucky (or unlucky) for you, dear reader, I ruminate on all these topics, and more. (Take the “and more” for whatever you will).

I make a lot of side notes and interjections…and write almost entirely in stream of consciousness. If this bothers you, feel free to re-write my posts to your liking and re-submit.

If you’re looking for a more interesting read, try my other blog dedicated to my first love, travel. Again, no promises that it’s good. In fact, it’s just an extension of this blog…only slightly more focused. You’ll find I have a very loose definition of the word “focus”…


  • that quote above: check out this video.
  • my header: that really is my face and those really are things I think about. Yes, I think about glitter. For a full understanding of the concept, watch Series 2 Episode 2 of BBC’s Sherlock. The photo is a very zoomed in picture I took of the Palace of Versailles in Paris, France. Mind Palace….Palace of Versailles….get it?
