  • Changelog

    Holding on to the false hope that success thrives from inconsistency, welcome to yet another version of my blog! I promise, this was necessary for a few reasons. The first of those stemming from how completely unnecessary this was. There was nothing fundamentally wrong with what you were used to before, but for me it just wasn’t cutting it. I am a web developer (now, actually by trade 😲). However, that previous blog layout wasn’t coded by me. That felt like a sin. I was simply sponging off someone else’s creation. Not acceptable. So I decided to strip the blog...

  • Bear

    Let me geek out for a moment. I know it’s uncomfortable for everybody (even me) and no one likes it, but please allow me to steal just 2 minutes, 43 seconds of your time to tell you about this new app I’ve started using. (Android users, feel free to get your nerd fix elsewhere. This app is only available for iOS & Mac.) I enjoy taking notes. I like writing a lot, so taking notes for me can almost be considered a pastime. I often find a creative expression amongst things that don’t even need to be expressed in any...

  • The Set-up

    This blog has been a long time coming in ways you don’t even understand. Let me walk you through how it came to be. Before I do that, know this. WordPress is going to be mentioned in three different contexts here, as follows: WP1 – free, WordPress.com site WP2 – self-hosted WordPress.org site WP3 – paid for, WordPress.com site with custom domain If you want to know the differences, you can read this article. Okay, now we can begin. Back in Summer 2014, a young, bored boy logged onto tumblr.com and set up his first official blog. That boy was me....

  • Snapbook, Facechat

    About a month ago, Facebook joined Snapchat in the list of social media apps deleted from my phone. It was a carefully considered decision. In fact I probably spent too much time deliberating the idea, but eventually I came to the conclusion that it just had to be done. Reason being that Facebook was taking over my life. I would be in the library and instead of studying Caesar Ciphers, I would be studying the number of likes on my latest post. Following that I’d begin a discussion on a UNILAD video, then to finish it off, I’d conduct a critical analysis...

  • The Switch

    If you’re looking for a review on the 2010 Jennifer Aniston rom-com, you’ve come to the wrong place. Recently I switched from my Android phone (HTC One M8) to an iPhone 6s. The action of moving from an Android phone to an iPhone or vice-versa is commonly referred to as a sin in the tech community. Well, I don’t regret this one. Let me explain why… Recently that HTC phone kinda broke on me. It had stopped doing phone calls properly – i.e. on random, frequent occasions, around 30 seconds into the call, it would mute the other caller’s voice...

  • No Connection

    It was on Saturday July 4th that I was thrown into a cruel, unforgiving world. A dark, bleak and lowly abyss of offline content. With no Facebook to stalk people, no YouTube to watch people and no FaceTime to call people, my laptop had never felt like such a burden. As I looked at my phone I thought, sure I could call or text someone, but I didn’t want to be that guy. Looking back at my laptop I think, ‘What do you mean you can’t connect to the internet you piece of…’ I tell it some awful things, things I know aren’t true...
