Choosing a fulfilling life

The importance in the title is on the word choose, because, yes, it’s a choice. I read many stories of people who visited X number of countries or did that big round the world trip and still continue to travel frequently getting told by people wishing for that kind of experience: “If only I could afford doing like you, but, yunno, not everybody can take 2-3 months of vacation”.

Prosty.io: Progress Report #1

Ho boy, what a week! You know what? I did it, I launched it: Prosty.io is live! Ok, it’s not as grand as I wanted it to be when I started this project 7 days ago, this is only a quickly put together landing page plus email list sign up. But, I said I would launch what I had on Friday and that’s me honoring what I said. I have a bunch more designed and coded up but it’s still missing a lot of work to be a fully functional application.
