If Only

I was reading this striking essay by a childhood classmate, about his recent trip to London (the place where he went to university), his melancholy about coming home to Malaysia - after having grown into a queer, non-gender conforming, self-realised person - and the ever-present panopticonic fear that creeps into every action, every expression, every word he says. This is my response in agreement with him, as we more or less have the same life experience, and the sorrow we share is mutual.

I like my tech tactile and dumb

Recently I've been on a personal quest to incorporate more tactile and dumb tech in my everyday (aside: if only it was just as easy to get a himbo boyfriend too!). I have no idea if it's age or nostalgia, but I'm becoming more appreciative of technology that I don't have to connect to the internet to just function, and that responds back at me if I jab at it.

Death of the internet in real time

I am doing this thing I should have done a while back and converting all Twitter embeds on this blog into blockquotes. It's been more horrifying than you'd think.

This Thing, Again (I see through fog)

There are some things online that reemerge incessantly, astounding the seemingly neverending amounts of people who missed out on the earlier editions of discourse while frustrating the ones to whom this would be their 3 billionth encounter. Again?! Again. Again. An apple is one of these things.

A Personal Website VS a Portfolio

With the impending degradation of Web 2.0 the past few months, I have been accelerating my quest to archive everything I have (almost) ever posted on social media (Twitter, Tumblr, DA... there's not much on IG or FB) and other places (Flickr, Neopets, Google, and Photobucket). Rants, text, threads, doodles, art - anything from my 16 years of being online is being taken out and given their rightful place on my website.

She writes and illustrates quite a few webcomics and graphic novels. When not making books, she lulls away her time with essays on craft, life and experiences in the publishing industry. Some of her thoughts of art and life are rather unstructured and will evolve over time as this blog matures, as they should be.
