Orlando, a shattered complacency

    0
I’m a proud gay man. I came out of the closet publicly three months after my 15th birthday, as a freshman in high school, and was met with overwhelmingly positive support from my friends, family and total strangers. I’ve marched in half a dozen pride parades around the world, from New York to Chicago to Tel Aviv. I’ve been on the steps of the Supreme...

How I was booted from my own startup, what I learned and why HOO KOO E KOO?

    0
Half a year ago, I lost control of my startups TABLE and Dropr. The CEO I elected and trusted to run the business organised a sudden coup as soon as I left the country. In a few moments, I was left without access to anything I’ve been building for years — while boarding an airplane thousands of miles away.Elon Musk has been through it, Steve Jobs has been...

A New Normal

    0
I’d intended to write from the very beginning, but the crazy whirlwind of jet lag, new friends, and constant FOMO – plus a full work schedule – have put personal reflection on the losing end of the coin toss again and again. So here I am, in the middle of week 3, and this ballsy leap of faith is starting to feel normal. I know...

Post-Uyuni a fellow Remote (Pagina) and I decided to bail on La Paz. But we should have known our third of three night buses in five nights was not going to be third time's the charm.Soon after we crossed over the Peru border we drove past what we thought was a landslide: there were a lot of decent sized rocks strewn across one of the...

A Ticket for a Night of Cholitas Wrestling. Note the two bathroom tickets, a luxury in La Paz.Early on in our time in La Paz a group of us remotes took the cable car up to El Alto (see previous post on La Paz) to see something called "Cholitas Wrestling." We had a beer and a lovely chori sandwich, watched the sunset, then boarded a...

Day 198

    0
Breakfast at a hidden cafe in a beautiful garden, an entire exhibit about screensavers which, due to my introverted and somewhat nerdy/computer-driven childhood in the 90s, had me filled to the brim with nostalgia, coffee with a new friend, a cool Rotterdam-only design store, the very old canal neighborhood that looks the same as before the city was bombed, and finally wine + cake at...

Day 199

    0
I considered running in the morning to justify bringing my sneakers but instead did not do that at all and went to go get coffee and go to work, hustled for a few hours, grabbed a very late lunch before my train, got an iced latte and chocolate croissant to properly eat my feelings, and said a quick but sad “goodbye, see you soon” to...

Same Same…but different

If you’re new to my blog, you can see how I got started here. For those of you who are up to date on my Remote Year experience, I spent the month of December in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I split out to side trip in Thailand about halfway through the month, but returned on Christmas to finish out the rest of the month and transition with the...

Week two in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

    0
Yuck. I got a sinus infection at the beginning of the week that put me on my ass for two whole days. It was definitely from all of the cigarette smoke. Everyone and their mother smoke cigarettes here. Unlike the states, you can smoke almost anywhere you want - inside restaurants, bars, and clubs. Friendships are starting to blossom. There are definitely a few people that...

Speechless. The view from this pool was epic and I couldn’t help but think about how blessed I was to be there as I looked out at the beautiful city of Kuala Lumpur. I realized at this moment that this was it. This is living. We absolutely have the ability to make the things we want in life a reality. Everyone always tells you to...

I’m leaving RY two weeks early to head back to the states for a work conference and then staying put. I...
