About The Site

I always wanted to have a website. I could just never think of what it should be about. It seems everyone else around me has creative and unique ideas, and whenever I try to think of anything, I just draw a blank.

I take the train to work and back every day. I spend close to two hours daily riding it. When I first started, all I could think of was to shut out the outside world. Just sit there with my headphones in and stare out the window. Then one day, I overheard the beginning of a conversation. I was intrigued. So I stopped the music, keeping my headphones on not to make it seem like I was eavesdropping. Next thing I know, it was time to get off the train.

It turns out people talk about the most insane thing when they have an hour to kill. And some conversations are just that, crazy. But there are so many interesting things I hear as well. I have genuinely learned stuff I had no idea about before. And then it occurred to me. That is what my website should be on; all the interesting things I overhear and learn riding the train. So, that is exactly what I did. I hope you enjoy! And don’t worry, I’ll spare you the completely crazy stuff.

I ride the train, a LOT. Partially by choice, but mostly out of necessity. But as much as I wish I didn’t have to do it, riding gives me an opportunity to meet new people and learn from them. And that I do enjoy.
