I haven’t really publicized this and only the people I interact with daily knows but now that it’s been made official… I’ve accepted a job offer in Thailand with ATI. There are so many mixed emotions right now that my brain and heart hasn’t decided what to feel. For those who know me well, this is a monumental step. I’m nervous and scared, but excited for the adventures that are in store. #LTSC has been so wonderful and good to me and I cherish every moment that I’ve spent with all these wonderful people. It’s been a great honor serving you and the API community. Thank you for being such an inspiration of good work and my stepping stone in my growth and maturity.

"The root of suffering is attachment." - Buddha
The principle cause of suffering is the attachment to “desire” or “craving”, tanha. Both desire to have (wanting) and desire not to have (aversion).
- desire for sense-pleasures—kama-tanha,
- desire to become—bhava-tanha,
- desire to get rid of—vibhava-tanha.
The desire for sense pleasures manifests itself as wanting to have pleasant experiences: the taste of good food, pleasant sexual experiences, delightful music.
The desire to become is the ambition that comes with wanting attaiments or recognition or fame. It is the craving to “be a somebody”.
The desire to get rid of the unpleasant experiences in life: unpleasant sensations, anger, fear, jealousy.
The clinging to desire comes from our experience that short-term satisfaction comes from following desire. We ignore the fact that satisfying our desires doesn’t bring an end to them.
