In June, I ran a competition to win the chance to appear as a character in a video game called Forgotten Trail. This is a game that, basically, teaches you maths while you have fun completing quests and solving puzzles, and the whole thing is steeped in Native American culture. The company that m...

A little over a year ago, I bought a Fitbit. I didn’t pay it much attention at first, but over the months I developed a walking routine so that now I walk 5 to 7 miles daily. My neighborhood is boring, so I’ve done two things to liven things up. First, I’ve downloaded a spreadsheet to walk to Mou...

Katrina Ramos Atienza Katrina Ramos Atienza's blog:
I haven't been reading new books lately.

That doesn’t mean you don’t need inspiration. Creating anything is work. You hear that, it’s WORK! It’s t... Read more of this blog post »
