Quick Announcement

So, I’m back Stateside about being stuck in the British Airways fiasco all weekend. They stranded nearly a million people, including myself. No customer service, no hotels offered, nothing.

Let Go

Chances are if you’re reading this, you’re going through, or have already gone through, a major change in your life. You’re clearly not happy with something, but maybe it’s hard to quantify exactly what that something is. Frankly, this is the most aggravating thing about the entire process of unplugging.

Finland Is Fucked

When you hear the words Finland or Scandinavia, what’s the first images that pop into your head? My guess would be vikings, blistering cold, and some of the blondest hair and bluest eyes in the world. Studies typically show that 80% or more of the population of Finland have blonde hair. And when you hear the words […]
