Someone suggested that I share and frame this eulogy I wrote for my father a while back. I never got around to it. I swept it under the rug and forgot about it. But as I was cleaning out my files (literally and figuratively), I found it again. I thought I would and sho...

Warning: This is a looooooooong post. TL;DR: I was not okay but I'm working on it.

My dad passed away earlier this month, on February 10th, 2018. Just 17 days ago, as of writing. Those closest to me know that he was a mild-mannered, kind and honest man. I love him very much and I miss him very much. We all do. For those who were able to listen to my...

Last week, I was lucky enough to reconnect with old friends from college. Twice even. I met up with Ira Velasco, a blockmate of mine from almost 10 years ago (Block G, hollerrr), who came from Bonn, Germany and the University of Cape Town, pursuing further studies. I a...
