Right now, my focus is just to get my weekly blog posts going because that’s what I’ll need to record my experiences if and when I go to Japan or wherever to study. The format of the blog posts has shifted over time as I’ve experimented with it and learnt to write quicker. It takes about 4-6 hours to write each weekly post, longer if I want to do deep-dive research into a Memory Snippet of the Week topic.

Eventually, the Shrine of Memories will be my focus, where I talk about my life’s journey and how each individual part — my migration from Singapore to Canada, my depression and gender transition and subsequent happiness, my job, games I’ve played, anime I’ve watched, friends I’ve had, and everything else — influences each other and ties up together into one big package. The weekly Memory Snippet segments help me build toward this.

In the interim, I also hope to scan lots of random things that I’ve collected over the ages as a sort of digital archive of things, for future historians to come across.
