If a shopping mall exists in the metaverse, is it a shopping mall or a Meta Mall? I never thought I’d begin this post with a Meta reference, but here we are. I’ve always thought of malls as soulless, glamorous, better-lit avatars of expo centres. No? Just me then.
I spend more than 50% of my day staring at screens (my work demands it), and I’ve made it a habit to look away every now and again. There’s a beautiful lake right outside my window that connects seamlessly to the ocean.
I’ve started to resent taking trips down memory lane. Not because I loathe revisiting memories but because I can’t seem to! I was in the middle of an animated conversation about a family trip to Egypt, and I didn’t remember anything! Not one single memory. How does one visit the pyramids and not remember? Not even a vague flash of something. Did I blank out?
Lucky number 13. Do you believe in luck or numbers or omens? But I digress.
