A Foreign Country – ...

“Hey, your friends are over there.” “What?  Excuse me?” “Your friends.  I just saw them over there.” I was completely confused.  Here I was in a completely foreign town in the middle of Wisconsin, in a shopping mall I had a never been in and this stranger says, my friends are over there. “Uh, thanks.”  I said, not really sure what to make of it. As I continued walking through this huge mall, I noticed a...

Displaced

At age 7, I used to lay on the grass lawn of our suburban home, head cradled in my hands, staring at the clouds drifting past.  I was acutely aware of the sounds reaching me and they would begin pulling pieces of me to their sources; the dog behind the house barking, above and to the left a small plane passing by, the swish-swish-jerk of the sprinkler across the street, the passing cars, and in the...

The HKF By Andrew Ingkavet Hey there!  Welcome aboard.  I got a question for you.  What’s the first thing anyone coming here...

A Funny Thing About Commit...

If you commit yourself 100% to a project, it becomes effortless. There is no friction. It’s all or none. You do not battle yourself of whether you should or shouldn’t. You don’t prioritize, you just do.   It’s when you’re at 95% when there’s trouble. At 95%, there is stress. There is worry. There is anxiety. There are too many choices. There are pros and cons. You start to second-guess everything....
