Do Work You Love

Posted by Marko on December 13, 2018 in Off Topic |

Round and round and back again. It’s been a long time coming, but I finally feel that I’m in a place where I can choose work based on my interests rather than the income. I always dreamed of this place and thought it to be a distant fantasy rather than a reality for me.

Simplifying my life and finances has opened up the opportunity to do any kind of work I want. It’s been both liberating and overwhelming. Sometimes it’s easier to do something because you have to. Read more…

Unconventional Christmas

Posted by Marko on December 2, 2018 in Off Topic |

I love Christmas. I love the family gatherings, the cookies, the lights and most of all — I love the magic glimmer in children’s eyes as they anticipate the excitement of the holiday season. When I think back to my favorite Christmas memories from years past, a few things stick out. Like the years my […]

The Most Dreaded Clutter Purge

Posted by Marko on November 26, 2018 in Off Topic |

I have a dirty little secret. There is a room in our home that escaped the rampage of purging and downsizing undertaken over the past two years. It’s a room with sentimental clutter, outdated files and memories of a past I wasn’t ready to let go. The home office. We’ve decided to turn the space […]

Enrichment Activities on a Dime

Posted by Marko on November 15, 2018 in Off Topic |

In the city where I live, there are practically limitless opportunities for children to participate in enrichment activities. There are opportunities to partake in sports of every kind, music lessons, scouting, writing workshops, martial arts training, art classes, science classes, dance lessons, math enrichment and even manners training. Allowing our children to try all of […]

Thankful for A Perfectly Flawed Life

Posted by Marko on November 6, 2018 in Off Topic |

I’ve never been a fan of white clothes. Not only do they lose their brilliance after several washes in our hard water, but wearing a crisp white shirt always makes me uneasy. White is unforgiving. Unrelenting even. Like my clothes, I prefer a life enveloped in more forgiving shades of grey as well. It’s better […]

A Change in Daily Routines

Posted by Marko on October 29, 2018 in Off Topic |

It’s been about two months since I quit my full-time job. During this time I’ve been trying to balance freelance projects with a newfound freedom. When I go though a big change to my daily routine, it typically takes me a few months to reorganize and focus my time. I tend to get overwhelmed when my […]

This is All Temporary

Posted by Marko on October 20, 2018 in Off Topic |

For some time now, I’ve felt a strong push (or pull?) to move. I dream about living in a condo where someone else would take care of yard work and there would be less rooms to clean. Or a sustainable home that generates its own energy and distributes grey water to the gardens. I’ve even […]

Some Thoughts About Being on Time

Posted by Marko on October 13, 2018 in Off Topic |

I’ve been noticing people’s habits lately. Mostly, I’ve noticed individual’s tendency to be on time — or be chronically late. It’s always obvious who is on time when meeting others in person. But in-person meetings aren’t the only instances where we can offend others by being late.

Getting Unstuck

Posted by Marko on October 4, 2018 in Off Topic |

Many of you have asked me to report back on how my life has changed since leaving my full-time job almost two weeks ago. It’s hard to say for sure how much different things will be just yet, but a few things from my first week free from full-time employment stand out:
