summer vacation (40/100)

When I was growing up, my parents were adamant about leaving home at some point during the summer, preferably to visit a different country. Since we lived in the Caribbean, these trips were sometimes exotic — to places like the United States, Canada (where my Dad has family) and once, Europe — but more often than not, they were quick trips to neighbouring islands. It was important to them that my sister ...

My Video Lighting Setup – It’s so smart!

My video lighting setup has evolved over the years. For the past three years, I have been working on automating as much of the video lighting setup process as I can. I have finally finished it.

Between modifying the products used, installing some new products, and using a platform called HomeBridge, I was able to completely transform my video lighting setup into a completely automated smart home vi...

Très Chic: A Smart, Stylish Parisian Apartment Designed for a Young Family (and Cat, Too)

When we first encountered this exceedingly clever Paris duplex by SABO project, we wondered why it had been dubbed the “Sacha Apartment.” Is that the client’s name? Was it inspired by the street address? Turns out, Sacha is the name of the clients’ beloved cat. We should have guessed. Among the most salient features of this gut renovation, which combined two apartments into one, are the unexpected feline-sized pass-throughs carved into multiple walls on the first floor. The owners, a young coupl...

what are you willing to fail at?

Over the weekend, I watched a documentary film on creativity. The documentary was mildly interesting, but one of the interview subjects said something that I thought was particularly striking. He was discussing what part failure has played in his success as a writer, and while he obviously said that he’d failed more times in life than he could remember, he also said this:He said that to be creative, you have to be willing ...

the star collective: where community, coaching and mastermind meet

If you’ve been following Chookooloonks in the last year or so, you’ve probably figured out I have a bit of a thing for houseplants. It’s the new house’s fault: our old house, while cozy, was relatively dark, and growing plants indoors was near impossible. But this new house has a ton of windows, which means there’s a ton of light: so I’ve become a bit of a houseplant addict. Alex shakes her head every time she sees a ne...
