However, like anything worth having in this universe, there’s always a cost. A few days ago, I seriously entertained the prospect of adding a new officer toContinue reading “Captain’s Blog: Stardate 10202022.1”

Counselor Troi’s Office: Session 2

A post where I roleplay counseling myself Me He (William) can’t be emotionally reassuring. It’s a logic equation for him. I mean…ok he did reassure me physically a bit and tried to be reassuring but he’s just ill-equipped. He’s very clunky at it. Troi A lot of guys don’t try to be emotionally reassuring atContinue reading “Counselor Troi’s Office: Session 2”

Listen to Episode All my Starfleet (university) training, work experience and other interpersonal interactions hadn’t quite prepared me for how some people can behave at times.

Listen to this episode As I left Starfleet Academy (University), I was eager to explore the universe. At the time, I believed that I had a pretty good understanding of what the universe was and how to navigate it. Subsequently, I’ve come to realize how little I knew back then.
