Glass Pain

Sarah had been working with WindoSolutions Labs for more than a month now. The once enchanting charm of teleporting through tinted glass and intricate glass installations was now overshadowed by rising concerns and ethical dilemmas. She started to question the Labs’ disregard for safety protocols, and their incessant push for innovation at any cost. One […]

Office Design Museum

I couldn’t think of any loopholes regarding Dirk’s office design ambitions, so I decided to get out and clear my head. There are still delays on me making any novel progress, which means I’ve resorted to something truly drastic: planning. That’s right, I’m planning ahead now. This is unheard of for me. I don’t plan […]

The Change To Solar

Learning New Skills

Sometimes for fun my mates and I like to learn a new skill. How wholesome is that? Where most guys our age go out and drink beers from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning, my mates like to get together and see what we can do to improve ourselves.  Last weekend the weather was absolutely pristine […]
