Some people keep showing up on Artiden, and maybe you’re wondering who they are. If you’re following my story, here’s a bit about each of them.
Marinah (on the far left)
If you tell us a joke, we might have the same reaction, at the same time. We’re also in the same industry (tech) so we work together a lot. When her boyfriend can’t reach her, he calls me instead and I mess with him before passing the phone.
Here are some articles about Marinah:
She watches while I eat snow (ok she also screams)
Megz (on the far left)
She makes cake and drops it off at my house. I can’t tell if I love her or the cake more, or it’s like an issue we can’t separate anymore. Just kidding. Of course I love her. There wouldn’t be cake without Megz.
Another thing about Megz: she sanitizes the table at Starbucks before placing her laptop on it.
Math’s real name is Mathieu. Marinah and I have an accurate nickname for Math that I won’t say here. We live across the country from each other, but we’ll see each other again someday.
We met in Hong Kong, and she’s back in the UK now. I lured her into learning to swim by taking us to Malaysia, where every sport involves the ocean, and now I suspect she doggy paddles better than I do. I really like that picture I took of her in Malaysia.
Here are some articles about our adventures in Asia.
I didn’t know whether to put her first or last, but I also don’t remember whether I asked if I could write about her on the blog. I don’t think she had a choice nonetheless.
She thinks I’m wild and irresponsible. She also thinks it’s ridiculous that I can produce an event at all.
Unrelated, but for the record, her boyfriend and I are homies.
These are people who help me on Artiden, because it’s a bigger project than I can handle alone.
She’s my editor. She never tells me I’m boring, but she cuts a ton of stuff from my writing. She didn’t edit this page, though.
This guy makes cover images for me now. I take the photos and he makes them look nice and puts words on them. Dan is really sweet and always has a smile.
Matthew helps me compile music collections sometimes. He does things like acro-yoga in the park. Once, he sent me a bunch of links to poses to try, but I couldn’t convince my sister to let me stand on her.
