The Best Week Ever! (Happy Chinese New Year 2018)

Wine glass in hand. Music blasting. Candles are lit (both real ones and fake LED ones). "Rich People Problems" by Kevin Kwan is sitting on my desk... and it's the New Year (year of the Dog. Both my Dutch bro and papa are born in the year of the dog)! Not just that -- it's …

Transition in a Stretch Assignment

Good morning readers! I can't believe it's been several months (feels like years) since I've last posted. Those university years of my life where I'd sit in the Students' Union Building and take a break to reflect and blog seem so long ago. This morning, I woke up to a fall frenzy of wind, rain, …
