Thoughts on Relationships

I get asked a lot to write about relationships, probably because I used to be involved in pickup and it seems strange to some that I‘m now married (though from my perspective getting married is an obvious outcome of getting good at pickup/dating). I‘m always a bit hesita

My Unusual Computer Setup

A while back, around the time I switched to Linux, I had the realization that any amount of effort I spent customizing my computer would probably pay off. I use the thing just about every day and gains are cumulative so I may as well think about how to make my computer b

How to Automate Your Curtains

This is such a niche thing, but you‘d be shocked at how many requests I get for information on how I did it. A couple years back I gave a talk about automation, ranging from home to habits to business, and almost all of the follow-up emails I got were about the curtains.

If You Haven‘t Made Progress in a Year

You never know how your year is going to go. I often try to predict mine, and my predictions are usually nowhere close to what actually happens. Nearly inevitably, though, I make a bunch of progress in one way or another. If that wasn‘t the case, major alarm bells would

How I Choose What to Work On

I get asked often how I choose what to work on. From the outside, I can see why people ask. The projects I work on are fairly wide-ranging, from coding CruiseSheet to writing blog posts to random adventures and building things. Things make a little more sense when you un

The Magic of Transoceanic Cruises

I‘m currently on a cruise, which is really where I‘d be for most of the year if I had my way. While I do love all cruises to some extent, there is a certain secret type of cruise that is by far the best type: The Westbound Transatlantic or it‘s more rare cousin, The West

Living Frugally and Loving It

I‘ve talked before about how important it is to live frugally. A lot of people probably brush it off because it sounds like too great of a sacrifice or not relevant to them, but I think that‘s a mistake. It is possible to live frugally and to love it at the same time. In

What It‘s Like Sharing Properties With Friends

I get tons of questions about what it‘s like sharing property with friends, which makes me happy because I assume that it means that other people are thinking about doing the same thing. I stumbled upon it by accident, but shared property with friends is one of the major

Eliminating Minor Vices

I don‘t think I‘m qualified to suggest how to kick major vices like heroin and alcohol, but I have plenty of experience with minor vices like procrastination and time-wasting activities, both with myself and people I coach. The fundamental first step that many people ski

My Top Favorite Places All Over Japan

One of the best travel deals out there happens to be in the country that most people (mistakenly) believe to be one of the most expensive. Japan has the JR Rail Pass, which, for under 300 gives you unlimited access to nearly every train in Japan for a week. Using this p

My Friends and I Bought a Condo in Hawaii

My friends and I have individual condos in Vegas, an island in eastern Canada, and a flat in Budapest. It‘s not the same group for each property, but there‘s a lot of overlap. I realized that none of our places are ideal for winter, though Budapest does have its charm, s
