Who Are These People?

Maybe you’re wondering who these people on my blog are–here’s a bit about each of them. They are some of my closest friends. Updated June 9th 2018

Producing a Music Event in 2 MonthsMarinah (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:

When we met by chance at a coffeeshop and started screaming at each other

How I recruited her for my first big event

She watches while I eat snow (ok she also screams)

 

MegzMegz (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.

When something bad happens, she’s one of the first I’d call

She inspired this article about comparing yourself to other people

This is one of her favourite articles, I think. She quoted it back to me.

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.

He showed me how to make a recording studio at home

 

What Travelling in Asia Does to You: Culture ShockEm

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.

When our toilet wouldn’t flush in Malaysia, I was going to cry

How Em sent me to the Emergency Room in Hong Kong

In Malaysia, the tour guide told us to “visit the disco”

 

Pan

I often use “biceps of steel” as a figure of speech, but if I were to choose a friend who has worked towards this at the gym, Pan would come the closest (after me, of course). Pan also eats and drinks egg whites for fun. He thinks I portray him as a rude person on the blog, but this is not true. I’ve just written a really kind paragraph about him. He is a kind person. :)

Getting Pan to the hospital is like a sight reading challenge

When to start a new instrument, inspired by Pan’s guitar that I can never play (it’s left-handed)

 

The Sister

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 has a choice nonetheless.

She thinks I’m wild and irresponsible. She also thinks it’s ridiculous that I can produce an event at all.

She’s always supportive and I get a really honest opinion from her, all the time.
