I don’t know what that means

Jin: Btw I goat
Me: Okay
Me: Only in Malaysia can you say “I goat” and someone replies with “ok”
Jin: Hahaha

Backstory: the word “coming” (in the context of being “on the way”, or “coming over”) is sometimes written as kambing (for no other reason than because it sounds similar), which is the Malay word for goat.

In today’s lessons of phonetics

I learned something new in a daily affirmation room on Clubhouse yesterday (I swear I was the only Asian): people say “grand rising” instead of “good morning”.

“Grand rising, kings and queens!”

Somehow it’s 150% cooler when a black person says it.

When I say it, it just sounds like I’m talking about a Chinese restaurant.

The worst kind of clock

To the perpetually lonely bird making weird cooing noises for the past 3 hours: NOBODY LOVES YOU. GO AWAY.

It’s a curse of some sort

Why are all the people who own online (expensive) jewelry stores exceptionally difficult to work with?

It’s just this one specific niche.

Can we get some burpees in here

I recently started HIIT again.

Not going to lie: the first week was devastating, both physically and spiritually. I felt truly unfit for the first time in a very long time… something along the lines of, “I THOUGHT I WAS FIT FFS WTF IS THIS HOW AM I A TOTAL SHITTER???”

It is now the third week and I’m happy to report that my body has remembered what it feels like to be tortured.

All is right again in the world.

Old content, new surprises!

So awhile ago (by awhile I really mean about three years ago), I attempted to journal down “one thing a day” in hopes that one day I’ll look back at those entries and not cringe (too much). Obviously “one thing a day” was a terribly worded goal because if I’m going to be honest, my entries were more like “some things in a year”.

It’s only February but I’m struggling and hanging onto A REALLY THIN line of sanity wondering when the pandemic will go back to the void where it surfaced from.

And I have to say, revisiting the little snippets have kept me sane.

I think I’ll start porting them over to this site so I can keep better track of things. So… scroll backwards in a few days for new old content?

Leftovers are oddly comforting

Could this be a manifestation of college PTSD?

Finding joy

The pandemic is still going strong.

I’m a little annoyed that the infection numbers are still climbing despite EVERY MEDIA OUTLET telling you to stay home if you don’t need to go out or to practice social distancing if you do. Look, I get it. Staying in sucks.

But if you’re going out simply because “staying home sucks” and because being bored interferes with your lifestyle, I hope the folks at the ICU gives your ventilator to someone else.

Cryptocurrency and their charts

TIL what it means for a market to be “crabbing at X” over an extended period of time (looking at you Chainlink).

Also, asking the really important question: does technical chart analysis really ever work?

Isn’t it all just theoretically… gambling?
