Category: Blog Updates and Random Thoughts

Panic Attack

Oh. My. Freaking. Goodness.

It’s the end of the semester and I am way behind. 7 posts behind to be exact. But it’s not my fault.

Throughout the past two months, I’ve been writing all my posts fairly regularly – they just happen to be saved in my “drafts” folder. So, why haven’t I published them yet?

You see, I don’t like putting out posts that are in any way incomplete. Once it’s out, it’s done. As in: 1) no typos, 2) all links included, 3) all pictures inserted and properly formatted.


Herein lies the problem.

Yes, I have a stockpile of nice neat articles in reserves. All done. Ready to go. But where the heck are all my pictures!? I’m searching through my desktop. Not there. Ok, ok, it doesn’t have to be that picture, just a picture. Any will do. Oh hey, I know, there was that one at the restaurant… or maybe the one where…

Man! Did my usb just decide to swallow up every relevant picture I’ve ever taken? All that’s left in my folder right now are those shaky-blurry-ugly pictures I should’ve deleted as soon as I’d taken them (and now it’s even more junk I have to sift through).

Hm, anything on the internet? Nope, that site needs money. That one needs a subscription. Copyright… Argh, maybe I’ll just take a random picture right now and use that. That might work.

Why oh why oh why did I leave all the pictures until the end? Now I have to go through my entire monster library. Why didn’t I just organize all my photos from the get-go to make my life easier? I was so naive.

The clock is ticking.

Hm, where did Den go?

Notice to all: I’m still alive!

Hi everyone! Oh dear, this blog is rather unkempt.

So as you’ve probably guessed, I’m finally back in Canada! (And have been for the past month. Boy, is this ever a delayed update).

I’d been working pretty hard on maintaining this blog over the last few weeks before I left Vietnam. During the last two days of furious packing though, the blog was inevitably abandoned.

But, I still have lots of stories (and pictures!) to share. I also have a good page or so of post ideas that I never got the time to write up.

So over the next few weeks, I’ll be publishing all those untold stories – daily happenings I forgot to mention, my thoughts on Vietnam, and informal advice for anyone planning to travel around Vietnam/Southeast Asia.

So sit back and enjoy the (belated) updates!


At last, I have finished up the basic framework of my blog. It’s ready for public viewing!

Go ahead: explore, take a look around. Hopefully things are pretty straightforward and easily accessible 😛 Keep in mind that newest posts are always appear at the top of the page.

So much editing… but I like the results 🙂 Everything seems tidy so far. Of course, I’ll need your help to catch any glitches, typos, or other oddities. Make sure to message me if you notice anything out of the blue / have suggestions to improve the site / have any requests, questions, or blog entry ideas.

Thanks a bunch! Happy viewing!

Eugene is huge!
