WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND BUSYCONTINENT?

“In the mid-2000s, way back before starting BusyContinent, I went to a missionary-founded high school that is nestled on a hill near one of the Great Lakes.

The school has long had a deeply rooted rugby craze and the fever for odd-shaped balls hit me harder than Nalubaale’s breeze did during morning prep.

While I didn’t display the most remarkable ability on the pitch, off the pitch I soon sported the best (and only) rugby scrapbook on my entire class block.

I would update it every holiday, spending my time cutting the newspapers my father diligently kept for me (to the ridicule of my mother at both of us).

I went on start a manuscript series that was basically the “newspaper of record” for the most embarrassing things my classmates had (reportedly) done.

In my later high school years, I left the underground publishing scene altogether and went mainstream by joining the school magazine’s editorial board.

I was regretlessly cutting whole days of class to type out articles, strategize with other board members and of course… take long, sweet, unsanctioned naps.

Content creation and curation has always been my manifest destiny and with this latest adventure, I’m glad to be facing it more intentionally than ever.”
