Photos from today

Boyfriend pushed me to go back out and take some photos today since I haven’t been shooting as much as I used to.  Just spent a few minutes on campus shooting my favourite spot.  Not sure if it actually has a name, but there’s this little pavillion thing by Robertson Hall near the river.  I…

Less Than Jake Overrated Kinetic Typography

first try at kinetic typography

I did this over the summer as a side project to learn After Effects a little bit. I wanted to do something a little more taxing with the new iMac too.  Never planned to put it online, but today I thought…why the hell not?  I should be proud of the things I make right? The…

social media vs being social

Today I saw an old Asian guy wearing the same argyle sweater as one of my classmates.  I went between @mentioning this to my classmate on Twitter or posting on his Facebook wall, but in the end went with neither. Why? Because I thought it would make more sense just telling him in person.  That…

TEDxOttawa (he's a volunteer, not a speaker :P)

TEDxOttawa 2011

I was lucky enough to attend TEDxOttawa this year and while I didn’t stay past the first session (oh studying for midterms…), it was a very interesting experience and really opened my eyes to the different types of people in Ottawa. Of the speakers I saw, my favourite was Kelli Catana’s talk about how she reinvented…

who are we really

A classmate of mine posted this article on Facebook which I thought was really interesting.  Basically it’s a summary of this talk Chris Poole, creator of 4chan, made about how Facebook and Google are going about online identities all wrong.  I admit, when I first saw the title of the article I thought “what would…

I still read books

A few days ago I purchased a few books online from Chapters, and they came into the mail today (yay!).  Picked up three books, two hardcover, for less than $28 which is supremely awesome. This book was the main reason I made the purchase.  I pre-ordered this book so I could save 34% off the…

Mass Effect N7 logo cake

Mass Effect N7 logo birthday cake

Today was my boyfriend’s birthday, so yesterday involved a somewhat tedious job of making him a birthday cake.  He’s a big fan of Mass Effect so I incorporated that by making a cake with the N7 logo on it. I haven’t made/decorated a cake since high school (I prefer cupcakes to regular cakes), and this…

Me if I were in The Simpsons

The Simpsons and the Sens

First game of the 2011-2012 NHL Season was tonight for the Ottawa Senators.  Final score was 5-3, which isn’t that bad considering they were down 5-0 at one point.  It just sucks they weren’t able to turn the firepower on earlier, but with a young team going through growing pains, it’s expected despite the fact…
