  • How I Got My 2nd Dose of AZ

    It was about time for me to get my 2nd dose. We were told that we could register our appointments starting last week. My 1st dose was on 8/28, 2 weeks after the rest of my coworkers. For what reason, I don’t know. Probably because I’m younger.

  • GPS Motorcycle Riding

    Since I haven’t bought a RAM mount yet for my KTM Superduke, I decided to try a different way of navigating. On a scooter, it’s always easy to pause and check directions on a phone. On a motorbike, it’s a lot more difficult. I paired my Bluetooth headphones with my phone, and started the navigation […]

  • 2015 KTM Super Duke 1290 R Month 4

    The weather has been wet recently, and when it wasn’t, I had a sore back from swimming every night. The weather might get better later this week, so I’ll try to go on a ride on Thursday. In the last couple of weeks, I’ve gone on a few shorter rides. I’ve had the bike serviced, […]

    I started out the week by going to wash my bike. It is a relaxing task, albeit a sweaty one. Once the beast was clean, I took it home. I decided against riding it to my weekly tutoring session, as it was somewhat slower than anticipated, compared to my scooter. Anyway, the city driving in […]

  • 2015 KTM Super Duke 1290 R Week 1

    It was a pretty nerve-wracking week, because the KTM dealer had a bad reputation, but it was the only official dealer in the Taipei/New Taipei City area, so I had done business with them. It was only months later that people were telling me that they were terrible. I’ll file that away for future reference. […]

  • Cram School Teaching Vs Public School Teaching in Taiwan

    I have worked at both of these kinds of schools in the last few years, and this is what I think about them. For those of you who aren’t aware, these are the two main kinds of schools that you can get hired to as a foreign ESL teacher in Taiwan. I will be talking […]
