Growing up in an Israeli settlement

I enjoyed Iris Zaki’s documentary titled “What It’s Like to Grow Up in an Israeli Settlement“. The interviews seem to be part of Zaki’s documentary film titled “Unsettling“. I especially like how it was an interview with Israelis living in Tekoa, a settlement town, by an Israeli. If you’re interested in what seems to be […]

Going to bed early … in theory

My wife: I’m going to bed early, I’m exhausted. Me: Good idea! I’m just going to have my tea (decaf), watch some quick, random video on YouTube, then I’ll also head to bed early. … I finally get to bed about an hour later, after watching about half a dozen videos about having ADHD.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of the best movies I’ve seen

We finally watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and it’s comfortably one of the best movies I’ve seen. The story is compelling, the animation is brilliantly done. It’s just an incredible movie.

Why people with ADHD take medication – it often helps us function

I’ve started watching Jessica’s channel, How to ADHD. Actually, I’ve been binging a little this morning. I’m watching one video at the moment in which she explains what happened when she ran out of her medication, and just couldn’t focus: Many people with ADHD are embarrassed that they need to take medication to function. I […]

Another reason to have your own website

Brad Frost wrote about the value of having your own website the other day. This quote stands out: Writing on your own website associates your thoughts and ideas with you as a person. Having a distinct website design helps strengthen that association. Brad Frost I had a conversation with someone recently about their site. They […]

Reading more Arthur C Clarke books

I grew a little bored with my current books, so I thought I’d read some classic science fiction. I picked one of Arthur C Clarke’s early books, “Childhood’s End“, and read it pretty quickly. Despite the slightly dated technology references, the story is really well written, and kept me engaged right to the end. I […]
