Green padlocks for a safer environment.

Imagine waking up to a different view every day.

If you’re anything like me, your eyesight isn’t the best right after getting out of bed. You’re still a bit groggy, not fully awake. But that also means you have the pleasure of watching the world grow more and more detailed throughout the first few minutes of your morning. Sharper, more vibrant, hit by that beautiful orange-golden dawn. It’s really pretty, but after a full cycle of seasons, you’ve more or less seen it all.

Truly the crown achievements of the twenty-first century.

I’m not even talking about genetically modified crops, that’s just really cool (though we should do more damage prevention when using them). The real hot stuff is in the snacks isle.

Here’s to another year of misery and suffering!

As hard as I’m trying, it seems there’s no escaping my inevitable fate. My RSI is slowly returning. No, that’s a lie. It’s already here. I can try to deny it in an effort to make it just a little bit less real, but we all know how that turned out last time. So here I am, saying it: it returns.
