Welcome to My Blog

Welcome. I am an endless tinkerer. In other words I just love doing random shit, and learning about different things. Whether, it’s trying to master a new sport, learning a new language, or playing an instrument, I’m just trying to do different things and take in life. I hope you enjoy reading about some of the hacks I come up with, and I also hope I can learn from you. Let this be a place for us all to learn new skills, hobbies, and hopefully more about ourselves

  • Takeaways from “Dopamine Nation” by Dr. Anna Lembke

    This book really opened my eyes, especially the first few chapters, and it wasn’t because we are talking about a man who is using a reworked record player to sexually pleasure himself for hours on end. Okay, I joke, but this book was a great look at what causes addiction, and how we can reframe… Read…

  • Major Takeaway From the Book “Grit” by Angela Duckworth

    I enjoyed this one! It essentially analyzes what makes up “grit”. The author determines that grit is more important than natural talent or any other personality trait in having success. It reminded be a little of “Outliers” by Malcom Gladwell, but with more motivation (in that one Malcom makes it feel like success is dependent… Read…

  • Chipping Golf Tips

    When I first started playing golf, chipping was one of the most unnatural skills for me to pick up. Whether I had to hit the ball 100 yards, 50 yards, or 15 yards, I was lost. I had no feel for the distance. Even if I hit a great tee shot where a simple chip… Read…

  • Best Golf Balls for Beginners

    When I first started playing golf, I didn’t really care what ball I was hitting. To be honest, I usually stashed a few balls from the range, so I would have some on the course. Who cares?! I’m going to lose them anyway. Right? Well, that may be true, and if you follow in my… Read…

  • Pickleball Tips for Beginners. Get Some W’s On The Courts Today

    I remember the first time I played pickle ball. Me and my friend bought a set off of Amazon. We actually thought we were ordering equipment for an entirely different sport, which is actually known as paddle tennis. Still, we decided to go to some courts on a nice Sunday. Now, we were pretty athletic… Read…

  • Easiest Asian Language to Learn

    Now, before I even start to try and tell you which Asian language is easiest to learn, I should preface this article, by saying I know 0 Asian languages. I have never been to Asia, nor have I truly tried learning any of these languages. However, I have done a deep dive into this topic… Read…

  • How Long Does it Take to Learn German?

    I know you are really not looking for an answer like “it depends”, even though you know it’s true. As many of you know, there is no point where you really hit the “I have learned this” stage with languages. You can practice German for a mere week and already be able to order a… Read…

  • Using ChatGPT to Learn a Language

    Hey there! If you haven’t heard about ChatGPT yet, it is a fancy new AI (artificial intelligence) tool that can respond to any questions or prompts in a conversational tone. It is completely free to use and you can sign up at chat.openai.com/chat. I wanted to see if I could use ChatGPT to practice my… Read…

  • Exteroceptive Meditation

    I was recently listening to a podcast from the awesome, Huberman Lab podcast, where Dr. Andrew Huberman delves into the science behind meditation, including its benefits and different meditation practices. If you haven’t listened to that podcast, then I highly recommend it. What stuck with me most from this podcast, was a practice called exteroceptive… Read…
