The Great Escape: Month 58 Roundup thumbnail

Oh, my monthly roundups. They are so ridiculously out of sync with real time now (this post is basically one year late, ha ha) that I recently considered axing the series, but I decided to play catch up instead — so brace yourself for a couple of these coming up! However, now that I'm writing on…

Bangkok, Blurry Vision, And Why I Didn’t Go to Burma (Again) thumbnail

How much do I hate not having 20/20 vision? Let me count the ways. I'm not going to lie: this is a post about disappointment, medical drama, and dealing with corneal scarring. It's kind of a downer. On the upside, there is some Star Wars in there too. But don't say I didn't warn you. Back…
